Share Six: August 2017: Collections

Kathy of KG Ledbetter Photography chose the theme Collections and this month had me really digging deep.  Besides for books, and Lensbaby optics, I personally do not have much in the line of collections.  I collected clowns when I was a teenager and up into my twenties, but they are some where in the shambles of reconstruction and to be honest I really do not know where they landed up.  I have family photographs but I am not sure that you really want to see any of those.

So I had to dig a bit deeper.  I hope you enjoy what I came up with.

101 Ways to shoot: Toys: November 2, 2015 3081

In the reconstruction zone I found 4 boxes of lego pieces that are part of a {Collection} that date back 25 years. I was a firm believer in using Lego and construction blocks for spacial development and fine motor skills and coordination. My children were encourage to play with their Lego daily. It was not unusual to find me down on the floor building Lego with them. Amy had the coolest beach theme Lego in pink and white and we created a whole coastal town with the ice cream parlor, play park, beach chairs and umbrellas with Lego people boating, windsurfing, and jet skiing. Every so often Cameron’s pirate people would invade the beach and all hell would break loose.  It typically involved a lot of screaming “Mom”.


First Care Benefit Dinner: November 3, 2015 2913

Another {Collection} image I came across was these calculators. Every years since 2002, I have worked at a fund raising banquet. Typically you would find these calculators laid out in the counting room in preparation for after the fund raiser ended. For accountability purposes all funds were counted immediately after the banquet.

A {Collection} of raindrops. If you have followed my work, you will know that I love catching raindrops and their reflections. This particular day there was a collection of raindrops on the leaf.


Love: October 18, 2015 2172

I looked at this image as a {Collection} of pages that tells a story.  Books and I are firm friends. I love the smell of a book. I love to turn the pages and feel the paper in my hands. I am looking forward to spending some of the up-coming months working through a series of books.


M4H: Week 10: Shapes March1, 2015 3101

I was at the Ren Fest when I saw this {Collection} of bottles of “pixie dust”. I loved the colors and the way they were hanging off the beam.



I have ducks that a feed on a daily basis and very often they can get quite aggressive with each other resulting in feathers lying on the grass. This {Collection} of feathers was taken on a mirror.
