Foto Finish - Reading

It's volleyball tournament weekend and I have just a few minutes before I need to head to the kitchen to make sandwiches and cut strawberries for lunch.  I've not been on the computer much, just long enough to write a few posts, but there's not been much time to read posts.  I miss seeing what everyone is up to.  Hopefully I can fix that tomorrow afternoon, when things should slow down a bit. 

Today is Foto Finish over at Cat Patches.  I've been struggling a bit to decide on photos to post.  So I was looking for a way to come up with my own themes each week.  I checked out the word of the day over at Dictionary.com.  Sorry, but coming up with an image for "desinence" was beyond my capabilities.  But I checked out the quote of the day and found inspiration from that. 



"Go three days without reading and your speech will become tasteless."  Chinese proverb. 

There was one rainy day during last summer's vacation where we hung out at the local coffee shop, drank coffee, read, and played around with the cameras.  I borrowed My Guy's Lens Baby and was just playing around to see what kind of images it made and this was one of the shots that resulted. 

Kitchen duty calls, so it's time to go.  Check out all the other great Foto Finishes over at Cat Patches.

  2. What a great shot Kate! I've been having a hard time coming up with a 'theme' too. I need to get more organized. Hope you have a good day.

  3. I love that image Kate. Very clever. Okay. Sounds like I might have to come up with themes by popular demand. I'm thinking I'll make them optional starting next week. In honor of my Oregon quilt, you can make next week's theme "Where I Live".
