straight and curved lines within a church or house

Header Challenge: Straight and Curved Lines Within a Church or House

December 4, 2012

For now, I am going to try to hang in there with the Headbangers.  I hope I can keep up.  Please see the posts submitted by my cohorts Fishing Guy, Katney, Imac, Sandy and Lew.

This is where I go to church.  One evening, some of the kids played a game, where they had to find a note that was taped under a chair.  I liked the idea of geometric framing around the boy's face.

Chairs are an easy choice for straight and curved lines, don't you think?  Here we have one of our hamsters pretending to be Christopher Churchmouse for us.  I staged this dollhouse pic with my daughter's help.  She was the animal trainer while I used a couple of work lights to make sure it was sufficiently illuminated.

baby, it's cold outside
We haven't had a significant snowfall yet, but this shot was from January.  I like how the snow crystals sparkle.

May I assume that lines within a house includes the back yard?  Here is my grandson having a fantastic time with the plastic play sets that we have had forever.  These go back to the days when my wife used to do home day care when we were still living in Chicago.  It was a major chore to scrub and sanitize these pieces, but my grandson is worth every drop of sweat and achy muscle!

The image I selected for my header is a little visitor at church who's curly locks hung down for a series of straight lines.

Those curls are delightful. Glad you have elected to stick around. You know you are enjoying the challenge, and we will be tolerant if you have any weeks that won't let you participate.

I'm glad you're sticking with the Headbangers for the time being. Your photos for this theme are wonderful.

I like the face in the chair tunnel! And that gorgeous gal in your header! Our new kitchen got christened by the grandkids this summer. Guacamole is not usually on the menu - chicken enchiladas, tacos, and taco soup are regulars.

That little Miss in your header is adorable!
