1780830_10205689778947704_5828977657784816094_n3. Good Smells –ah, the heavenly scent of Java. Thanks, hunny, for hitting the start button before I got out of bed!

IMG_24304. Movement—Moving furniture around in the house opened up a whole new idea for decorating, so I am adding this to the living room soon!

Photo A Day, CY365 MONTH of October 2014 (second try!)

So, I forgot I had set this to auto-publish, and I hadn’t added all the photos…

Trying something a bit different this month…All the photos for the month are in one post.  And, can I just whine a tiny bit and say that not a single soul has asked me where my weekly updates are? (sniff Sad smile)

\…

One month to go before Christmas Photo a Day starts again! Are you READY? Do you want to receive the Christmas photo in your email every morning? Then sign up to receive this blog, or ask me to put your name one my email list!

October-CY365-Photo-Challenge-List-2014 THIS is the list.

IMG_125415. Changes—As the Scottish people were deciding to stay or go, I was working on framing an old Union Jack flag.  (The framing job turned out great, the vote? Eeh. It’s not my country, so…)

10708246_10205320298350920_550853004_n  17. A Circle. Laylabug came out of the bathroom and handed me a cup, full of change. She told me she had found some gold doubloons!

10695017_10205314583288047_972584701_n8. Single — Single-mindedness in her desire for a ‘butter sammich’ for lunch. Negotiations were tense!

10705193_10205314618368924_924442207_n9. Reading—One of my favorite activities!

31. Negative Space  Today’s prompt was Negative Space. While I shot a lot of images that would qualify, these two spoke to me. This first one I changed to ‘Negative’ so you can see the positive image on the muslin sheet that the photo is on. Follow this link to explain the largest pinhole camera image ever, The Great Picture.  Negative space is just a fancy way of saying the part of the image that isn’t the subject— the question today would be, is the building the negative space? Or were those fantastic clouds the negative space? These are both taken at Udvar-Hazy Center, Smithsonian Air and Space Museum.

1622258_10205223392208327_8661177827849244318_n4. Beginning of the end (of summer).  The colors of the leaves on this pecan tree are just starting to change….

10634208_10205189710086295_1414833275_n (2) Last week, the prompt Distinctive had a subtopic of The Pink Hour…. but I didn’t have a good pink twilight that day.  Look at this one!

Photos! The View from the Passenger Window is SIX!

Happy September! I have a gift for you!  My website, A View From the Passenger Window,

is SIX years old this month!

“Now We Are Six”

When I was one,
I had just begun.
When I was two,
I was nearly new.
When I was three,
I was hardly me.
When I was four,
I was not much more.
When I was five,
I was just alive.
But now I am six,
I’m as clever as clever.
So I think I’ll be six
now and forever.

AA Milne

————————————————————————————

And now, for something completely different…. Surprised smile  I hesitate to point out here and now, that CHRISTMAS is only  114 days away.  (No, you may NOT deny this fact. If I have to go along with this reality, so do you. Sorry!)

and that means two things:

  • ONE, start your gift shopping NOW, here! Remember, the sale will last throughout the month of September; there is art for everyone!
  • TWO, my Christmas Photo a Day will be BACK on December 1st. A new holiday themed photograph every day in December, since 2008!

20131209-IMG_5884Many of these images are available  to customize as Christmas Cards!

Thanks for joining in weekly for my Photo a Day Journey, published right here each Sunday. (This is CY365!)  At the holidays, I shake things up a bit and post a new blog each and every day. Sign up today to receive your Christmas photo each morning in your inbox!

Or, follow me on Facebook; I will post the photos each day there! (If I can make it to 1000 likes before Christmas, there may be a free print in someone’s future. Just sayin’.)

On Twitter, I am @rteest42.

As always, I love to hear from people….thank you so much for joining in the festivities of the day!

Not a lot of terribly exciting images this week, but I hit most of the prompts!

24. Where I Stand
25. Tradition
26. Making Plans

27. Two of a Kind
28. A Backpack
29. Distinctive
30. A Different Perspective

10621818_10205112530076843_161518595_n24. Where I Stand  That must have been one party! This is what I woke up to the other morning.
10613925_10205090739052081_787776832_n25. Tradition  Monday mornings, our tradition is breakfast with a friend!
10656458_10205142761232603_1248148388_n10622373_10205082996378519_118497579_n26. Making Plans—My plan is for some sewing, Neko is waiting for his person so he can play!

10637776_10205093514081455_221965652_n29. Distinctive  Artist at work!
20140828-20140828-IMG_004230. A Different Perspective—I am standing outside the window, but as there is no inside to this wall, I look through it and see outside! Along with a bit of outside growing along the sill.

10603046_10205142764712690_1386052552_n My pincushion kind of horrified my husband.  He thought it a very painful looking thing, indeed. I told him it probably wasn’t comfortable for the person whose heart  might be represented, had it been a voodoo doll!  (but, it isn’t!)
