Weekly Photo Challenge: Scale

Boy can this “prompt” be used in many different ways!  

SCALE

The first thing that came to mind was my bathroom scale.  It is near Halloween so it’s appropriate that I bring something up that can be a very frightening experience for many of us.

Not only that, but check out the name of my scale.  If you are a fan of Steven King, you get it!

My seldom used bathroom scale!

Thinner indeed!

I felt sure that I would begin losing weight once I started using this scale to weigh myself, but obviously a misnamed product.

THE MONSTER IS SLEEPING!

Then there are “fish scales.”

Daily Prompt: The Danger in “Believing”

The secular world has borrowed and defiled many of God’s holy words and truths.  Man is becoming famous for stealing the Words of God and pretending they are their own unique ideas to sell books or speak to the lost in our world.  If you are knowledgeable in the Word, you will not be fooled into believing the false doctrine of others.

Many times I see just the word “Believe” on a plaque or canvas and I wonder, “Believe what?”  You can believe anything but it helps to believe in the truth, always.  People of the world feel foolish or simple-minded to believe in anything as simple a concept as “God.”  They feel they are too intelligent and educated to be fooled into such a primitive belief.  This is a world-wide belief as far back as man existed and continues today for good reason.  It’s true.  Is it explainable?  Not really, but those of us who believe, know it.

Who can explain the spiritual truth of Faith?  If you don’t have it, it does not exist for you.  It is something between your heart and God and God cannot be fooled.  It has to do with genuine love inside and need to humble yourself because you love and really desire God because you need Him.  We all do need God but few get this because the world does it’s best to make you feel foolish in this desire by making you prideful and “empowered” within yourself.

Anyone that has even the slightest spiritual enlightenment or sensitivity knows that there is something more in our world than meets the eye.  Many of us have experienced it and know there is another realm to this world that cannot be seen with the eye, but can be felt in the spirit.  This is where your “good vibes” bad vibes” idea comes from and we all know this is true.  Some are completely thick-skinned or oblivious to others “feelings” towards them while others pick up on that right away.

There is that feeling of peace and serenity with prayer and meditation and the unsettled or angry feelings that come with fighting and cursing.  There are definite intents and intent is everything.  Just like someone smiling while stabbing another in the back, literally or figuratively.  Just because you are smiling does not mean you have “good vibes.”  This is what many are finding out with those who currently control our mainstream media news, entertainment and governments.

The world’s art and entertainment has long been on a slippery slope of ugliness, negativity, hypocrisy, insincerity as well as perversion and downright evil.  A society’s culture represents the society and right now it’s not good.  Most people are basically still good, still pretty down to earth and knowledgeable BUT the media currently representing all of us does not represent us fairly or accurately for the most part because it’s only there to serve the needs of the few who control it.

Believe things are going to get better and then make it so!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Windows, Inside & Out

Windows.  Mostly on the outside looking in, sort of like my life.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Layered Effects

Examples of some of the layered effects and collages I create with my photographs.

Layered flowers, border and text.

A couple of erased lilies from other shots in varied transparencies and sizes layered.

 

created a black background, layered part of butterfly bush and butterfly with designer effect on wings with text.

Cross layered onto a photo of a painted canvas, layered with other photos and text to reference when Jesus felt abandoned for a previous photo challenge.

Altered background with various paint spatters in PhotoDraw then began layering varied flower types & size in similar colors. Depending, I will vary the borders and transparencies as well til I get the desired effect.

 

This one I used a couple of graphics included with PhotoDraw and added text for my quote.

Cropped & erased to only show the leaves & bird on tree, positive & negative images, layered together.

Just layered bits & pieces from various fall photographs, cropped, parts erased & bordered.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Layered (2)

Layered composition & juxtaposition.

From the parking lot to the balcony to the cozy chair.

From the layered garbage to the layered posters to the layered kids on this busy Toronto street.

 

Weekly Photo Challenge: Layered

Skies, layered with clouds!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Structures

When I think of a structure I think of buildings, man made architecture of some sort.  Everything physical has some sort of “structure.”  Enjoy some of the structures of Ann Arbor, Michigan.
