Sunday Stills, the next challenge: From This to That

I’ve been thinking of this challenge for awhile and thought it would be both fun and challenging. This week its a two pic challenge the first pic is the original subject and the second is what it becomes. For instance last weeks challenge was cows so you could have a cow then a glass of milk or a seed pod then the flower or tree bloom from that seed pod, get the idea? Have fun with this one.
For my demo pic I’m using a couple pics I took last week in Tennessee, the Tiger Swallowtails were just hatching and there were lots of them in their current configuration as well as the caterpillars too..

From this…

Sunday Stills, the next challenge: Yellow or Wildflowers

Looks like spring is finally here, at least down south. I was just in Iowa and Missouri and there was not much new wildflowers but there were a few. So for this week lets celebrate spring with either the colour yellow or any wildflowers you can find.. :-)

I did find some wild sunflowers down in south Texas last week..

Sunday Stills, the next challenge: 100+

This week its a history challenge, anything that is 100 years old or older will work, from historical things to places lets see what ya got or where you have been.. :-)

My demo pic is loaded with history. The canons are napoleons that were forged in the early 1860’s and the cabin is the Brotherton cabin built in 1859 and the scene of savage fighting on the second day of the battle of Chickamauga in Northern Georgia during the Civil War.
