15 day challenge, Day 14

On the wings of borzoi. 

Theme—Flight; Challenge—Create interesting wings

This is an image I have had in my head for a long time. What better time to do it than now. Rounding up the four borzoi proved to be the most interesting of challenges. They thought for sure I had lost my mind. I’m pretty sure I did.

Yup, this is what I look like walking the dogs.

15 day challenge, Day 13

Gone, but not forgotten

Theme—Forgotten; Challenge—Use paper

We have had the good fortune to know the love of many greyhounds over the years. Our hearts have been filled with joy many times and broken just as many. It’s a journey I will never regret taking.

When the numbers were high, we had a 5 x 5′ kennel system for the dogs. Last summer when we were taking it down, it seemed like the perfect fence to put around the gardens. It gave a whole new life to something that brought us great joy.

15 day challenge, Day 12

Really? Do we have to do this?   

This boy will do just about anything I ask of him. I am so in love with him.Trying to fashion a shower in the ancient plum tree wasn’t so easy, but Zip took it all in stride.

Theme—Pressure. Not so much water pressure, but I did feel a little weird asking Zip to sit under the tree with water spraying on him. Challenge—Use water. Hence the dog bath.

15 day challenge, Day 11

The sky is falling.  

I don’t know the last time we saw rain. I was so anxious to get in the gardens that I probably rushed it away. Last night and this morning we welcomed rain. Morning coffee in the barn was the best as a warm and balmy rain light fell to the gardens.

OK, this time I probably pushed the theme and challenge just a bit.

Theme—diversity. Seriously all of the chickens are different and the rain, we’ve had nothing but hot summer days, rain is diverse. The Challenge—Use a stranger.

15 day challenge, day 10

Day 10, Still hanging in there.  

If somebody had suggested that I would spend 15 days taking portraits of myself, I would have been rolling on the floor laughing. There aren’t many photos of me, I have never appreciated the lack of kindness the camera has for me.

However, I have to admit this little challenge has been fun. It’s taken me out of my creative box on a daily basis. When push comes to shove and it’s time to do the work, I’ve been able to take a stroll around the yard and make it happen.

Theme—Being Alive; Challenge—Use a rope or string
