March Photo Challenge – Sunglasses.


Maybe you’ve noticed I’ve had to stretch the parameters of the photo challenges a bit to fit life.  Like yesterday's challenge of cars . . .  

Oh, I thought about showing you how our car is down to two hubcaps now after the last tire rotation, or the picture of the hubcap still in the trunk.  (I saw it rolling down the gravel road in the rear view mirror and went back and got it.)  But don’t you think those women making cake pops was a better picture choice than a car missing hubcaps?  Yes, me too, so I put a toy car in the picture and called it legitimate.   

Today’s challenge is similar:  sunglasses.  I could show you my first and only pair of sunglasses.  They’re functional-out-of-date-but-not-retro prescription glasses from1999. (Think goggle-like.  The prescription is no longer accurate, but it's close enough.)  

But what I really wanted to take a picture of was the sun in the stained glass window at the Columbia River Temple.  But, the Columbia River Temple is closed for maintenance this week, so Calvin, Abe, Grace, and I went to the Spokane Temple instead.  The Spokane Temple doesn't have that same sun in the glass.

Regardless, we had a wonderful, wonderful day.  And the sun shone on us and the glasses of the doors and I think that makes it legit.

Spokane looks a lot like the Louisville Temple that we went to this week. Beautiful!

I love that your pictures are creative takes on the challenge! I'm excited to see all you come up with!

I think this is a perfect picture for sun. The sky is beautiful in the picture and the temple glows like the sun. Great picture.

Hang on. You still have your first pair of sunglasses?? What the? I lose or break them so often, sunglasses are practically disposable to me.
