Weekly Photo Challenge: Object

I’ve been otherwise occupied for a wee bit, with goodness knows exactly what but it’s certainly kept me busy!

I hope a merry Christmas was had in every corner of the blogosphere and I wish one and all a very happy, healthy and peaceful new year!

This weeks photo challenge is all about the ‘object‘…

    I’m new to WordPress and to Photo Challenge. I didn’t know how it works — one item or many, or all according to one’s own interpretation. I put up one yesterday, and another one today. I love your pictures, and the informative captions. Thanks for stopping by to encourage me. πŸ™‚

      You are most welcome and thank you too! Sometimes I post one photo and other times I just can’t decide which photos to use so do a collage of a few! Welcome to WordPress…I’ve found it to be a community of many wonderfully lovely people! πŸ™‚

    Those red flower pots on the window are so beautiful yet so simple, one of my favourite photos πŸ™‚ I want a copy of this too. The red colour just pops out and it looks like an edited monochromey background even though it isn’t, it’s such a great pic!

      Grazie bella! I was going to get you one of those printed off before you left for Madrid after Christmas, along with a couple of others you said you wanted and I forgot! Will have to post them to you along with some PG Tips and bourbon bickies! πŸ˜€

    Yummy ice cream! Raspberry cream cheese? My favourite! and I love that crab carcass. Great finds! Happy to meet a fellow object hunter!

      Actually I think it was just raspberry ripple (although it probably had a more fancy name that I can’t remember now and still very delicious!) but raspberry cream cheese sounds divine! πŸ™‚
      The crab shell was great and the biggest I’d ever seen!

Quotes that speak to my soul…

"Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving.
What you have caught on film is captured forever...
it remembers little things,
long after you have forgotten everything." - Aaron Siskind

"You become things, you become an atmosphere, and if you become it, which means you incorporate it within you, you can also give it back. You can put this feeling into a picture. A painter can do it. And a musician can do it and I think a photographer can do that too and that I would call the dreaming with open eyes." - Ernst Haas

"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by Dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most importantly, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary."
- Steve Jobs

β€œTo photograph is to hold one's breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It's at that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy.”
- Henri Cartier-Bresson

β€œFor me, the camera is a sketch book, an instrument of intuition and spontaneity.”
― Henri Cartier-Bresson

β€œAbove all, life for a photographer cannot be a matter of indifference”
― Robert Frank
