TWiP: Close to Home

This Week in Pictures, Week 33, 2021

Unlike Week 33s past, the 2021 Week 33 did not involve any beachy day trips, weekend getaways, or intercontinental travel. I barely left the house. On the plus side, I did manage to procure a bouquet of zinnias, which inspired some photo play and kept me plenty entertained.

TWiP: Window Box Chicken

This Week in Pictures, Week 31, 2021

I don’t know how the time manages to pass so quickly, but it always does. It’s August already. I feel like the summer just started, and yet we’re only a few short weeks away from pumpkin latte season. I’m starting to feel a little desperate to make sure I’ve availed myself of enough summer joy while it’s still here.

TWiP: Instant Gratification

This Week in Pictures, Week 30, 2021

It’s been a little over two years since I bought my first instant camera, and in that time, I’ve taken a few photos that I love, and a whole lot of photos that are kind of terrible. I don’t know what keeps me plunking down my hard-earned cash on yet another pack of film, or worse, a whole new camera to love/hate, but here we are. As of this week, I’ve got four instant cameras and two and a half photo albums full of evidence of my misadventures. I do think, though, that I may have finally turned a corner with my latest purchase…

Friday Photo Love

Can you believe it’s Friday again already?  Time flies.

I think this may be the end of the line for Mister Linky on Friday Photo Love.  It seems only a very small number of people are using it, and I have to keep deleting spammy links.  I’ll give it one more week to prove worthwhile, and if it fails, next week you can start mentioning your link in the comments instead.  No biggie, right?  Right.

OK, so on with the love!

Flickr Favorites

This week was a study in aqua, pink, and flowers, it seems.  I suppose, though, the same could be said of many other weeks. You can click on the mosaic for complete photo credits.

I thought you might be interested in how I find my way around Flickr and discover the photos that become my favorites.  There are three main things that I look at (but really #2 is the method I use the most):

  1. New photos from the Contacts page.  If one of them grabs me from the thumbnail, into the favorites it goes.
  2. On the Recent Activity page, if I see that someone has favorited one of my photos, I check to see what other photos they have favorited.  Chances are, if they like my pictures, I might enjoy some of their other favorites.  I also sometimes take a look at their own photostream and find interesting things there.
  3. Browsing through groups that have an aesthetic that appeals to me.  The groups I choose change based on my current interests.  Sometimes I’m going nuts over linen and patchwork, and other times (like now) I’m enjoying the Shutter Sisters group.


This week, from my own photostream I chose this Project 365 shot.  This is one of my favorite ways to do breakfast – on my bed with a cup of coffee and my laptop.  I love how it’s bright and nicely-lit – no small feat in my house, I assure you.

Want to play along? Grab the Friday Photo Love button from the sidebar if you’d like it, and leave your link with Mister Linky below.  What are some of your favorite photos for the week, and why?
