Red - Walked into THE PAPER SOURCE such a cool place for finding the neatest "stuff". Cards, calendars, beautiful papers, rubber stamps, invitations, clever, clever thingamajigs. The 1st time I went in, I politely asked if I could take pictures...yes was the reply. The 2nd time it was an emphatic NO, now the 3rd time it was yes, ofcourse you can. So, because there was a "yes" this time, here is my first image. A cute stack of red suitcases.
Yellow - I thought about this one for quite awhile. Looked here, looked yon...then I looked at my hand and thought, oh boy, here you have been carrying around yellow all morning and you just now recognized that....oh, Deanna, sometimes I worry about you. (I talk to myself too). In case you can't tell what this is, it is the list with all of the challenges.
Green - If I wore a size 9 I would have bought these boots in a heartbeat. The pair was (or do you say were, I can never get that straight) beautifully displayed in the front window of our local thrift shop. Aren't they beauties!!
Round - Isn't this the coolest pumpkin? Those are glitter dots decorating the pumpkin (not real). This was right inside the door of a fancy schmancy decorator/designer shop. The owner was in front setting up her fall displays and I again, asked politely if I could take a picture. There was hesitation and questions about what I was doing with the pictures...luckily I didn't hesitate, "Photo Challenge with an object that was "unique". I know, this isn't entitled "unique", I changed my mind, this is now the round one, but I didn't bother to tell her that. I figured if I would have said "round" she would not have agreed to the photo.
Square - My home is filled with squares, mostly checks (I love checks and stripes) but checks equal squares. The above is a red checked lampshade against the checked wallpaper. Told ya I liked checks.
Diagonal - Today was the last day our group met at Barnes & Noble for our weekly chat, next Wednesday Bible Study begins again. I will miss these times together and in celebration of our last day, I decided to try something decadent from the cafe. Brand new this week, Pumpkin Cheesecake, cut on the diagonal and loaded with whipped cream. Oh yum, a belly banquet!!
Unique - Not the best picture but it certainly is unique...this is a calendar with each month posted on the sides of dimensional animals. Mighty clever if you ask me...another goody found at The Paper Source.
Out of Place...this stumped me completely for awhile. Then I happened upon one of the side alley's in town and this wonderful piece of art was just waiting for me. This is quite a large mural that is still "a work in progress". The people in this astonishing piece are "real" people that live in our fair city. I recognized a few along the way, but why I chose this was because of the obvious Dick Tracy cartoon character. I even placed an arrow pointing toward him just in case you could not figure out which one was the cartoon. The illustrator for Dick Tracy, Dick Locher is from Naperville (I am kinda assuming that the gentleman next to Dick is Dick)
So, that is my first Photo Walk Challenge. I had a blow-the-bugle awesome day and can hardly wait to tackle the remaining two challenges. Hope your day was as fun as mine.
