Weekly Photo Challenge: Orange Take 3

My 3rd attempt to capture orange as prompted by the Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge series. Did you miss my first submission, a nacho cheese dorito? Yes, it does get rather high brow around these Square Notes from time to time (lies). My 2nd attempt was an 80’s style montage, “always fade out in a montage…” as I am told. Today I give to you the humble but ubiquitous traffic cone as seen here in nature. Not a paved road for miles but there he stands his post with pride.

Cheers lovies!




Weekly Photo Challenge: Orange


A variation on the Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Orange

“Orange strengthens your emotional body, encouraging a general feeling of joy, well-being, and cheerfulness. Orange vibration foods are: oranges, tangerines, apricots, mangoes, peaches and carrots.”
Tae Yun Kim,

The vibrant orange Dorito, as seen here in nature (no filter), is the perfect example of an “orange vibration food.” Take a look at how that fluorescent orange “cheese” cheerfully pops out at you. Do beware, although it may strengthen your emotional body, it’s rather heavy on your physical being.

The Death of a Mouse


His friends said he had a keen sense of smell, a distinction that helped satisfy his weakness for goldfish crackers. After gorging himself on several handfuls of the discarded snack he would often curl up for a nap on the plush floorboard of the white SUV as opposed to the open field behind the house. He was an urban rodent in that sense. Preferring the creature comforts and shelter that the compact vehicle afforded. The leather interior wasn’t bad either. Everything was just perfect. Until one day…

Her Life Was Up In The Air

This little dose of mortality was in my path the other day:

Erik is used to me stopping without warning to take pictures so my actions didn’t phase him, initially. But then I picked up this fallen beauty to get a closer look at her which got him laughing and scratching his head. A bit about the scene upon arrival:

The deceased appears to have expired from natural causes. No evidence of foul play or a struggle. Further inspection reveals a perfectly in tact specimen. The extended position of the flying appendages, or wings, suggest the time of death occurred mid flight.

That must be what it’s like to breathe your last breath mid sentence, mid chew, mid stride. Did you do everything you wanted to do little one? Did you tell all the people you love how much you appreciate them? I hope so. It’s a damn short flight, isn’t it?
