This week's challenge selection is finished by Katney.  Check out my pals for their interpretations on this theme: Fishing Guy, Katney, Imac, Lew, and Christine Anne.

The header photo is finished daylight. The sun was setting, and I liked the colors, so I pulled over into a parking lot, and aimed the spot meter to a portion of the sky. No extra editing was needed for the evening's dramatic display.

This week's challenge selection is shadows by Lew.  Check out my pals for their interpretations on this theme: Fishing Guy, Katney, Imac, Lew, and Christine Anne.

The idea for my header is not unique. I have seen it before, but I liked it so much, that I had to try it for myself. It is my original wedding band casting a heart shadow on the "love chapter" (1st Corinthians 13) which is often read at weddings. This was from the NLT version of the Bible. I chose it because you can see that it's chapter 13, and there are no study notes or cross references. The evening lighting even cast a nice, warm hue on the white pages.

This shadow finished the 5K before the runner.

e pluribus unum

e pluribus unum

September 3, 2014


This week's challenge selection is e pluribus unum by Christine.  Check out my pals for their interpretations on this theme: Fishing Guy, Katney, Imac, Lew, and Christine Anne.

The Seal of the United States of America includes the Latin phrase e pluribus unum.  That means, "out of many, one." It may also be translated, "One from many." My first thought for the theme would be a macro of the phrase as it appears on our smallest coin. On the dime, it is a little more than a centimeter across. One of my favorite things in life is a healthy lawn. That one lawn is actually made up, not just of many blades, but also out of many individual plants that are groomed to look like one unit. A lush, green carpet of bare-footin' goodness!  (The rainbow in the header was real. What a bonus!)

It's impossible for me to read this tiny Latin phrase on a dime without help.


Out of many drops, one rain.


Out of many tissue papers, one flower.


Out of many seeds, one overgrown lawn.


Out of many bricks, one wall.
