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…

TWiP: Slow this thing down!

This Week in Pictures, Week 24, 2021

I’ve been enjoying the day lilies this week. And in other news, my younger son graduated from high school on Friday. How did this happen? It seems like he was just graduating from 8th grade. Or preschool, for that matter!

This “raising children to adulthood” thing is a great ride, but it moves way too fast.

So, what is This Week in Pictures?

It’s a roundup of the little (and big!) moments I have captured all week. Some of these images are posted on Instagram, but many aren’t posted anywhere but here. Some days there may be no photos, and other days there may be multiples. It’s more laid back than the Project 365s of previous years. You can learn more here 🙂

Photos taken with 📷 (Canon EOS 80D) or 📱 (Samsung Galaxy S9).

Here’s a very short video, featuring 1.5-second moments from the week, including birdwatching, a new knitting project, and my younger son’s high school graduation 🥳:


I went to Duke Farms with my sister for a little birdwatching thing. It wasn’t really geared towards photography, but I did manage to capture this little swallow, who was hanging in his house, waiting for us to move on and leave him alone 😁


Day lily season is in full swing 🧡

Speaking of lilies… my mom has them in so many cool colors. I really love these red ones, in particular.


I have no idea what these are, but we’ve had them in the back yard forever.


My birthday balloons have basically called it quits.


The youngest Clarke is officially a high school graduate today. Love this guy. 🤎💛

Thanks for helping me celebrate the week! If you want to see this stuff as it happens, please feel free to follow me on Instagram ♥
