Photo Challenge: Sept 2023

  • September Challenge - Summary

    I very much enjoyed the September 2023 Photo-blogging Challenge at, it gave me a lovely opportunity to look back at all the photos I’ve taken over the years; as I’ve been taking photos since December of 2004, it’s a lot of media to look through (at the time of this post, … read more

  • Enjoyed the September 2023 Micro.Blog photo challenge, it was so much fun looking back into my photo library. With the exception of one day, all of my photos were ones I’ve taken over the years. 😁

  • πŸ“Έ September 2023 Micro.Blog photo challenge. Day 30: Treasure

    Cards (9 of hearts, 7 and 5 of clubs on one side, with the Jack of diamonds and the Ace of spades on the other side) on a white tablecloth, with pennies on top of them.

    Playing for pennies during a friendly family (in-law) poker game. I wouldn’t call them treasure but I did win a few rounds…and as I’d never played before…that was good enough for me. β™ οΈπŸƒπŸͺ™ #mbsept

  • πŸ“Έ September 2023 Micro.Blog photo challenge. Day 29: Contrast

    View of the St. Lawrence River, with ice chunks occupying most of the surface, at night, with houses covered in snow and streets with lights at the bottom of the picture. On the upper part of the picture, across the river, lights can be seen up and down a bluff, with a few well-light buildings prominent in the cloudy night sky.

    A view from the Terrasse Dufferin during February; I always love Quebec in winter…the contrast of light and dark, ice and life…it’s lovely. β„οΈπŸ’‘ #mbsept

  • πŸ“Έ September 2023 Micro.Blog photo challenge. Day 28: Workout

    Weight machine, with various brackets to hold bar-bells, in front of a wall of mirrors, reflecting other parts of the gym; the machine is set up for squats.

    One of my overarching goals for this year was to work on my health, with a large emphasis on fitness. My bestie has work pushing me into lifting weights, for my regular workout. πŸ‹πŸΌ #mbsept

  • πŸ“Έ September 2023 Micro.Blog photo challenge. Day 27: Embrace

    Grey cat, curled up and hiding his face with his paws, on a blue bedspread, with blue pillows behind him.

    He didn’t want to wake up,
    so he was hiding his face,
    in a sweet little self-embrace.

  • πŸ“Έ September 2023 Micro.Blog photo challenge. Day 26: Beverage

    Two stemmed glasses of mulled wine sitting on a tray, next to plates and a cutting board with cheese, crackers, and knives. The tray is on top of a black ottoman, with the head of a white dog staring at the tray in the background.

    I was never sure if Russell was after the cheese or the mulled wine but I know he was hoping we’d walk away at some point; he made a habit of stealing unguarded food. πŸ·πŸ§€πŸΆπŸ€£ #mbsept

  • πŸ“Έ September 2023 Micro.Blog photo challenge. Day 25: Flare

    Two giant firework explosions, one pure white, the other colored (red / white / blue), in the night sky, with a trail of smoke leading away from them and the city skyline of St. Louis, with the Arch, is on the right side of the photo. The glow of the city can be seen reflecting a little in the river below.

    Nothing like a little flare to brighten the night sky on the 4th of July. πŸŽ† #mbsept

  • πŸ“Έ September 2023 Micro.Blog photo challenge. Day 24: Belt

    An iPhone 15 Pro box in on the seat of a car, behind a seatbelt.

    Wanted to make sure my new iPhone made it home safely, so of course I used a belt in the car. πŸš—πŸ“± #mbsept

  • πŸ“Έ September 2023 Micro.Blog photo challenge. Day 23: “A Day In the Life”

    Collection of mixed donuts (some covered with sugar, some with sprinkes, some with a sugar-glaze, some with chocolate), four by three, for a total of twelve.

    Breakfast this morning; we’re visiting my Partner’s cousin’s family and as they took us to dinner last night, we showed up with tons of sugary carbs. 🍩 #mbsept

  • πŸ“Έ September 2023 Micro.Blog photo challenge. Day 22: Road

    Broken electric scooter, lying on a brick road, with its headlight still on.

    Just a piece of rubbish lying next to the road. πŸ§±πŸ›΄ #mbsept

  • πŸ“Έ September 2023 Micro.Blog photo challenge. Day 21: Fall!

    Wooden bench in a park, with yellow leaves covering the ground and some on the bench. There is a paved trail in the background, with yellowing trees throughout the photo.

    There is nothing like the crunch of leaves underfoot as you’re strolling around a local park during the Autumn / Fall season. πŸŒ³πŸ‚ The only thing missing is a pumpkin-spice flavored drink. πŸ˜†β˜•οΈ #mbsept

  • πŸ“Έ September 2023 Micro.Blog photo challenge. Day 20: Disruption!

    Red stop sign in the foreground, with road names mounted on top: 'Rozier St' and 'Linn Dr'; a True Value hardware store is in the background, the parking lot right behind the sign.

    It’s always good to stop when see a sign, unless you want to cause a dangerous disruption. πŸ›‘ Bonus points when the intersection contains your last name… 🀣 #mbsept

  • πŸ“Έ September 2023 Micro.Blog photo challenge. Day 19: Edge!

    View of the sky and ocean, from an airplane; the ocean is a deep blue/purple below, with a hint of sunlight appearing on the water from behind the clouds, while the white wing of the plan is across the middle of the image.

    Any time I fly, I always feel like I’m at the edge of the world, especially when going over large bodies of water. This is the sunrise from my first trip to Europe, ten-ish years ago, flying into Amsterdam. πŸŒ₯️✈️🌊 #mbsept

  • πŸ“Έ September 2023 Micro.Blog photo challenge. Day 18: Fabric!

    Projection of the TV show 'Seinfeld' onto a sheet, outside, during the end of twilight / the start of evening. The sky is a deep purple, fading to black, with some fairy lights strung up in the right of the image, while the sheet with the TV projection is in the middle, attached to the roof of a house with white siding.

    Taken during the first summer of the Pandemic, when we were all having backyard gatherings, the friend who was bringing over their projection screen couldn’t make it so we used a sheet instead. πŸ“ΊπŸ˜· #mbsept
