Life in black-and-white

There’s a challenge going on all over the Internet, people challenge each other to take a black-and-white photo representing life for seven days. No people and no explanation. My friend Grace challenged me and I was so excited. I love taking pictures and looking at life through a camera lens. Taking photos in black-and-white forcesContinue reading “Life in black-and-white”

finding life’s texture…

I haven’t been writing much lately… Well, I have been writing, but nothing has made it to far as hitting submit. Most things I’ve written lately haven’t even gotten far as going back to proofread. I’ve written a lot of random ideas as they pop in my head, half thoughts, and nonsense. I’m really tryingContinue reading “finding life’s texture…”

Toast Tuesday: Focus

I’ve been remiss lately in writing.  I’ve had so much going on and I just haven’t made the time to sit at the computer when I don’t have to.  While life has been moving swiftly, my creative juices have been flowing all over the place.  It’s been awhile since I have done the weekly photoContinue reading “Toast Tuesday: Focus”

WPC: Time (for a party)

It time for Mardi Gras, Memphis style.  I got invited to a LSU alumni Mardi Gras ball and boy did we laissez les bon temps rouler.

Because I am always taking pictures of everything that catches my eye I had quite a few to chose from. I hope these make you giggle as much as theyContinue reading “WPC: Optimistic”

WPC: (Extra)ordinary

Last year my mother dragged (really, almost kicking and screaming-dragged) me on a cruise.  Not a sit in the sun and see amazing new tropical countries kind of cruise, but a boat full of really old people kind of cruise.  I had the BEST time!!  We were celebrating her 80th birthday and this was on herContinue reading “WPC: (Extra)ordinary”

Happy Beer

I took this picture a couple weeks ago at the Rockabilly Festival for a friend who likes pictures of beer foam. Silly, I know, but we all have our quirks. When I saw this challenge I knew exactly what picture to post.  I hope this makes you smile like it made me. 😀    http://sonyaliraphotography.com/2015/08/29/quenchyourthirst/
