Day 135 – Beauty Exposed

Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it. – Confucius

There’s an entirely different world hidden in what we see everyday. The weeds on the ground have the most delicate, vibrant flowers, the gemstones have hidden gems within, quite simply, there is a hidden gem in everything. It’s my conquest to discover these hidden treasures!

Today’s mystery “what is it?!?” picture is ready for your guessing pleasure. Do you know? Can you tell?

What Is It?!?

What Was That?!? Yesterday’s Picture (Day 134)

Take something ordinary and make it look not like itself, that was my challenge for yesterday’s picture. I succeeded! Here’s what it looked like to others: georgette silk drapes or a blade of grass. But that’s not what it was!

What you saw was the circular holder on a green tin can, now holding fresh soil and Basil seeds.

Day 119 – Fun Is Good

Fun is good. – Dr. Seuss

No shortage of work around here, Monday has already proven to be, well, a typical Monday. But I’ve learned that I work best under pressure, I even thrive; however, I’m not that great at handling the pressure/stress. So what’s the remedy? Fun! Because after all, fun is good.

Today’s mystery “what is it?!?” picture was a lark. I had no set plans and decided, on a whim, to make this my subject. One image in particular I just love. It’s this one! Do you know? Can you tell?

What Was That?!? Yesterday’s Picture (Day 118)

Yesterday’s image is a prime example of how things look different to different people, there were a wide variety of guesses, quite interesting! It looked like the side of a dried mushroom to one. It could be concrete with something growing on it, or coral, or a starfish. To another it looked like a toad or frog-type skin. Or underneath a fern leaf. And then Paul dinged the winner’s bell with the correct guess of tree bark.

I was taking pictures of our Japanese Red Maple tree and happened to notice these unusual patterns on the bark, almost like a mirror image. That tree was just full of hidden treasures!

Day 92 – The Stuff Is Everywhere!

The sun is new each day. – Heraclitus

I have become thoroughly enthralled with the sun lately, taking as many pictures as I possibly can throughout the day, just to see what surprises are in store. These surprises are massive sun spots (yesterday’s looked like a heart), or flares, sometimes both. I now view the sun as I do everything else – a mystery waiting to be revealed.

Yesterday I decided to take a picture of something that is very, very prominent this time of year in the region I live (Northern Florida), I even talked about this on my personal Facebook page. How daring I’ve become! I thought it might be a giveaway, funny thing is, it wasn’t and I’ve still got friends guessing today.

But for today’s mystery “what is it?!?” picture, I suddenly had an idea of something to photograph, thank you muse! That was simple, and I’m pleasantly surprised with the outcome. The question is, can you tell what it is? Do you know?

What Is It?!?

First, I’ll tell you what yesterday’s subject was not: not chenille, nor any type of fabric. It also wasn’t the surface of a colored Easter egg or egg shells. It wasn’t bread or a gold medallion. And it wasn’t a gold Hershey’s Kiss wrapper. But yum!

It’s springtime here in Tallahassee, Florida. What happens during this time? Lots of budding trees, plants, and flowers. What does that produce … EVERYWHERE and on EVERYTHING?

Pollen. Yellow pollen. This is what my outside dining table looked like before I removed said pollen. Interesting patterns, but yucky stuff!
