Day 102 – Wish You Were Here

Tears of joy are like the summer rain drops pierced by sunbeams. – Hosea Ballou

While some parts of the world are still underneath snow, here in the South we’ve got lots of pollen and humidity to share. Wish you were here! Just don’t forget your tissues (pollen-induced runny nose) and umbrella, it’s about to storm. And it’s gotten hot! You’ll need your sandals, too.

I am so inspired by looking at my fellow bloggers’ photographs, paintings, writings, thoughts, stories, and everything else that you post. Although we never get snow here, I get to experience those white flakes through other’s eyes. Although I don’t leave my seat while posting or perusing other posts, I get to travel around the world where you live. I have learned a community doesn’t have to be together in the same locale. You can make friends no matter where you live.

So here we are with the daily mystery “what is it?!?” picture, which makes 102 funky photos! Can you figure out the subject? Do you know?

What Is It?!?

What Was That?!? Yesterday’s Picture (Day 101)

I was so fortunate to find a stash of pictures that could help me out of days like yesterday, when I was “under the weather” and the last thing I wanted to do was figure out what to photograph, take several dozen shots, and then edit the results. The picture I ended up posting I took a couple of years ago when I was literally on my belly in the back yard. But before I tell you exactly what this outdoor subject is, I’ll tell you what it looked like to others. Dried pasta. It looked wet, but wasn’t. Corn kernels (two guesses for this, and that’s what it looks like to me, too). A seashell. Crustacean Exoskeleton (now that’s a mouthful, eh?). Is it a vegetable? Hmmmmm, it could be considered that, but it didn’t come from my kitchen. Puff pastry? Would you find it in a Mexican kitchen? No. Would you find it in an Italian kitchen? No kitchen.

So what you saw was outside, low to the ground, and could be considered a vegetable, although I can’t say for sure if you’d want to eat this particular one. If you’re now thinking “mushroom,” you would be correct! Yesterday’s picture was the side of a mushroom. Funky!

  1. Like Gail, I never would have guessed a mushroom. Great angle! Today’s pic looks like the close up side of a blue colored vause.
