The Weekly Photo Challenge asks us to “explore the use of anonymity to express both that which is common to all of us and the uniqueness that stands out even when the most obvious parts of us are hidden. Just as all of us can oscillate between conformity and individualism, allow your photo to do the same.”
Here are some photos of anonymous people in crowds I’ve encountered in my travels.
The WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge: Variations on a Theme challenges us to find the endless variety that one thing can contain. Here is my take on vintage signs on the Jersey Shore. These were taken in winter, when most of the places were quite deserted.
As my maiden name was Cathy Birdsong, I have often used the name “catbird” on my blogs. I was in New England a couple of years ago when I came upon this aptly named studio – one I’m sadly not at all associated with. If only I had such a studio!
Last year in Chincoteague, I came upon this sign that carries part of my youngest son’s name.
My oldest son’s girlfriend is named Ariana. I found her namesake restaurant in Philadelphia – a restaurant featuring Afghanistan cuisine. Sadly, we didn’t try it out. And we could have had 20% off with a movie ticket!
Unrelated to any of my family, I found this boat in a Maryland marina a couple of summers ago, an ode to Miss Betty. Berthed beside Miss Betty is The Other Woman.
And at Green Mount Cemetery in Baltimore, MD, I found the gravestone of Elijah Jefferson Bond, creator of the Ouija Board. 🙂

Today’s Weekly Photo Challenge asks us to share our interpretation of “edge.” The challenge: Take a photo from an actual edge, like a balcony, a window, or a seaside bluff (wherever you are, stay safe!). Focus on a sharp angle or object, or show us the outer margins of a building, a face, or a book.
These photos of edges are from our recent trip to Iceland. You can read more about my trip here: in search of a thousand cafés where I write about my travels in Europe.
Saturday, June 18: This week’s Photo Challenge asks us to get inspired by the curves around us, from curves in architecture to bends in nature to man-made undulations. I had a fun time looking through my happy memories to find photos for this challenge.
