It’s a photo Monday in the Chicago area.  I’ve already done the Phoneography Challenge, but the Sunday Stills theme is “Macro” and I have a couple photos I’d like to share for that.  It’s quite a contrast, as the Phoneography Challenge theme this week is “Black and White” and  my macro photos are full of color.  So here I go again.  I hope you enjoy the double post and I’m not making you too crazy.  🙂  As always, thanks for dropping by to look, “like” a/o comment.  It wouldn’t be fun without you!

I couldn’t pass up the chance to play with editing, so I’m participating in today’s Sunday Stills Challenge, “Modify My Pic.”   We’ll start with the photo provided for modification.

When I see the word “potluck”, I think of those wonderful meals at church where everyone brings their specialty to share and we almost all eat too much.  My dad used to hate these and would only eat when my mom brought, but he’s mellowed over the years and now enjoys them, too.  Potlucks are usually heavy on entrees (meat and cheese entrees in particular)  and desserts and light on lots of healthy alternatives.  This week’s “Sunday Stills” challenge “Potluck” will have no discernible calories and will be full of healthy, delicious photos.

To have a challenge that allows me to choose what I want is great, right?  It is, but it’s also overwhelming when I look at all the photos I have and want to share.  But I’ll put my nose to the grindstone and pick out a couple that I think you might enjoy on this finally-spring-like Sunday in the Chicago area.  To find all the entries for the week’s “Sunday Stills: Potluck”, click on the words.  Then follow the links to lots of great photos.
