Silver, Family, Waiting

Combining the photo challenges from Where’s My Backpack?, the Daily Post and A Word In Your Ear has proved particularly challenging this week. Their respective themes are Silver, Family and Waiting.

After a bit of thought I came up with one possibility.

Actually, that’s a bold-faced lie. The truth is that Sue thought of using Cloud Gate (aka The Bean) from Millennium Park, Chicago, although only in conjunction with Silver. But when I looked at our photos, I realised an argument could be made that they covered all three themes.

Cloud Gate, Chicago: Families congregate around the huge Silver bean, Waiting for their turn to take a photo of themselves...

...Sue and I finally get our turn!

…Sue and I finally get our turn!

I got another bit of inspiration at the village Post Office, while collecting the mail with Rich this afternoon:

Silver boxes, each with a Family’s mail inside, Waiting to be collected.

Silver boxes, each with a Family’s mail inside, Waiting to be collected.

I think my images cover all three ideas. Leave me a comment to let me know if you agree or not.

In the meantime, why not follow my continuing Journeys on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram? And as of last week, there are now three Jaspa’s Journey novels to enjoy as ebooks!

In hindsight, I figure the subjects I’ve chosen also fit with the current Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge, which is Man Made!

    Interesting. I have never been to Chicago but hope to put that right some time soon. I wonder if it’s possible, by getting up early, to capture this location without so many people? Wouldn’t have been right for your challenges but might make for an interesting alternative shot.

      I love Chicago. In fact, it’s one of my favourite cities. So much to see and do. Perhaps I’ll get up early next time I visit and test out your idea, Rachel!

    Neat! I often combine two challenges, but three?! Now that’s given me another challenge! 🙂

    Thanks Sue! I actually managed to add it to two more challenges since I originally posted it: ‘Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge, Man Made’ and ‘Weekend Reflections’.
