Is your glass half empty or half full? Mine tends to be almost completely full but there are time when it empties a bit. However, even if there’s only half a glass, it’s still enough to nourish and refresh…but only if drunk.

The end of the year is a time when many bloggers are looking back at the past year. The Lens Artists Challenge, Thursday Doors, and others suggest we share our favorite photos of the year. I always plan to do that, but when push comes to shove, I just can’t do it: too many photos to choose from and too many that I’d choose. Every day I put out photos that I love, photos I hope you love as well and that has to be enough.

Tina’s challenged us to show “cold” this week. I’ve lived in the Midwest my entire life except for some years in Colorado, so I’m not only used to the cold, but I really enjoy winter. As we’re moving to Arizona next spring, I plan to enjoy this last winter to the max.

However, we humans aren’t on the front line when it comes to the cold.

Amy at The World is A Book has given us the challenge this week to find layers.

Ann-Christine has set us a difficult challenge this week, difficult because there are too many magical choices. I can’t find the photo that came to mind first, but searching reminded me of a challenge I used to love: the Phoneography Challenge, hosted by Sally at Lens and Pens by Sally. Browsing that folder, I found more magical things to share than you want to see. But here are a few. This first is the photo from the now-defunct Weekly Photo Challenge that got the most likes ever on my blog.

But wait! There’re more.

It’s Monday, time for another walk with Jo and other friends, but on this walk, we can easily frame a few choice bits of Wyoming for Amy and the photographers of the Lens Artists group (as well as all the walkers.) Tie your laces and let’s go! But first, take a look out the window. You never know what you’ll see.

Ann-Christine challenges us to find angles this week. As Bing Crosby pointed out in White Christmas, “Everybody’s got an angle.” Even my van has an angle, more than one in fact as you can see in this photo.
