When I saw the word “Scale” this photo immediately popped in to my mind. Sage was performing at a storytelling event and I captured a photo of her along with my coffee in the frame. Clearly she is very excited … Continue reading Dutch Goes the Photo Tuesday Challenge – Scale
Today’s challenge from Dutch Goes the Photo is “Wonder“. I’m not usually one to take a challenge quite so literally but sometimes the opportunity just presents itself. Back in January I was in Bagru village in Rajasthan researching an article … Continue reading Tuesday Photo Challenge – Wonder – Bagru Village
One of my customers is in central Louisiana. Being there poses a little challenge to my health. On the one hand, the food is incredibly good. So good that I still make some of it at home. The portion sizes … Continue reading Tuesday Photo Challenge – Reflection
Take yourself back to 1978. OK, for some of you that means imagine 1978. Disco was still king, Star Wars had recently come out and blown us all away, and that Christmas I would find a wrapped copy K-Tel’s “Star Power” under the tree. Continue reading Dutch Goes the Photo Challenge: Birthday

This week’s Tuesday Photo Challenge at Dutch goes the Photo is “Play” and though the topic is as broad as we want it to be, the photo of a dog used with the post seems to have me focused on … Continue reading Tuesday Photo Challenge – Play
In my last Hindi class we talked about the phrase “आकाश से बातें करना” – talking to the sky, meaning “really really high.” Two days later the Tuesday Photo Challenge from Dutch Goes the Photo happens to also be about … Continue reading Tuesday Photo Challenge: Height
