Shutterbugs and Photography Friends, welcome to a very belated World Through My Lens, 12.2019. The photos below were taken during December for the 2 photography challenges in which I participated last year. One challenge is the Sunday Stills series hosted by Terri at Second Wind Leisure Perspectives. And the other was The Everyday Eye Candy Project 52 with LaShawn at Everyday Eye Candy on Facebook and her blog, Everyday Eye Candy. Before we get started today, you can visit last month’s World Through My Lens post, here.
WORLD THROUGH MY LENS 12.2019
Had this post almost put together days ago but just didn’t click on publish! For some reason, I like to share these photography posts on Sundays. When I missed publishing the first, second, and third Sundays of January, I had to wait til today to have this go live. I think that’s the OCD in me!
WORLD THROUGH MY LENS WEEK 49
EVERYDAY EYECANDY PROJECT 52, WEEK 49: ‘Tis the Season
This beautiful ornament was part of the Christmas decor at the Troy Hayner Cultural Center in Tipp City, Ohio. Appreciated my SIL and friend, Greta, taking me to see this old home decked out in its holiday splendor.
SUNDAY STILLS, 12.01.2019: December Chill
How cute is this snow bunny in her brand new shearling jacket? We had such a fun day in Ruidoso, New Mexico that culminated with playing in the snow.
World Through My Lens Week 50
Everyday Eyecandy Project 52, Week 50: O, Christmas Tree
Took this shot as Brennyn, Mustafa, Cady and my Prince walked over to the little hill where we slid/sledded in Ruidoso by moonlight before heading for home.
Our last stop for the day was the Inn of the Mountain Gods, where they had this lovely Christmas tree on display.
Sunday Stills, 12.08.2019: Peace
My sweet baby Cia taken with the camera on her monitor. A live wire when she is awake, but so at peace in her sleep. The kitty she is holding is a stuffed look-alike of her beloved Dee-Dee or Doughnut who died last summer.
World Through My Lens Week 51
Everyday Eyecandy Project 52, Week 51: All of the Lights
Thought this photo turned out more interesting than I intended! I was trying to photograph the lit trees between the fence rails at the very impressively decorated home of Fred Loya, local celeb. But the rails on the fence kept getting in the way. Seeing the photo now, the fence posts made the photo more interesting!
Sunday Stills, 12.15.2019: Holiday Decor
I liked our mantel best of all our holiday decor. The painting is one that PC bought me for an early birthday one year. It reminded us both of the Smoky Mountains of my childhood Tennessee home. The reindeer and swag remind me of the mountains, too.
World Through My Lens Week 52
Everyday Eyecandy Project 52, Week 52: You at the End
At the Sun Bowl game, 12.31.2019 with my PC. Growing out my gray hair and you can sure see that here.
Sunday Stills, 12.22.2019: Something Red or Green or Both
Purrsnickitty loves Christmas. Or, at least the tree. I think she thinks we set it up for her entertainment. Kind of like a little seasonal park in our living room.
This year, I am continuing to participate in the Sunday Stills photo challenge. Considered joining another photo challenge called Capture 52 but came across it a little late, 4 weeks after it had begun. Submitted each of my pictures to Capture 52 for the prompts so far in order to get caught up. But there seems to be a rule about just adding photos to the thread for each week’s prompt. And I already broke it!! This might not be the challenge for me.
Checking over the photos from your December, would you have one for each of the prompts above? If you are looking for a fun, laid back challenge for the new year, check out Terri’s Sunday Stills, here. Then join me by sharing on your blog the great photos you capture. On Sundays, of course.
Thank you for coming by, friends! Can you believe we have zipped through January already? Just plain craziness right there. My PC started baseball this weekend. Our temps were close to 70* both days. Revealed my winter bucket list last week and it’s feeling like spring this week! Have a good week, girlsies.
Hugs and kisses,
