“To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.” — Elliott Erwitt

Barn shoes...just washed.

Orchid blossoms... round two.

Eggplant...eggplant....and eggplant.

Babe's our daughter's wedding.

Glen Stirling...the sire of my pony Glen Aberlour. (painting by me) angora goat we had for many years. (painting by me)

I CONFESS! I had to use my archives for some of these photos. Did not look at the challenge until now and it's nearly midnight....


Lake Ontario....Hamlin Beach.

Flowers from our gardens and fields....

Flowers at the Peddler's Market.

Table decorations for an event at our farm last Sunday.

Glen Aberlour....

In memory of Shennandoah....from Tina.

Garden Tour again....

Joe's house.

HOWEVER!!!!! These are ALL my own photos.

To view more examples of PURPLE:


  1. cool series of photos, lots of variety is nice :)

  2. ah yes, the many shades we can find of one color!

  3. And beautiful they are!! Great shots!!

  4. great shots! The song cracked me up!!! :-)))

  5. I'd say you did really well on all of your choices. I'd love to see more of your paintings. Fun song as well. :):)

  6. Wonderful selection of purple. I am so jealous that you had a fire in your kitchen. (We go years without using our LOOKS good though.) A crackling fire does sound so cozy and relaxing. Dr. Porter would probably want to curl up on the hearth and snooze (if it's not too high - not a big jumper, he wouldn't win jumping ribbons). Gucci looked ready to get on with the chores. Let's go mom!!

    Porter is so-so tired of the heat. Even with fall beginning this week we haven't seen any sign, yet. Enjoy your delightful cool evenings. Nice post!

  7. Nice collection, I think the one with the Dahlia in it is my favorite. And I must say, I like your paintings better than the ones by the artist you featured in the post below.

  8. Lovely, lovely ..... but my favourite has got to be the first one of Babe's Opal - gorgeous !

  9. You managed to find quite a variety for it being midnight-ish when you started!!
    I really like your paintings, especially the one of Rosie.
    And the house with the purple trim... yeah, I'm into architecture.

  10. Joe's purple house trim rocks! Great selection!

  11. Wow, a lovely collection of purples. My favorite is of the horse. :) Happy Sunday.

  12. Lori, Wonderful collection of purple..I love your shoes, mine are the same only red! I have to trade them in for warmer boots soon. Your paintings are stunning! :)

  13. Lovely collection of purples :D Your post brings great variety to this weeks challenge :D
