What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

Foto Friday:: REACHING


Last week's challenge was :: REACHING :: and could have been taken literally or figuratively. I knew there would probably be lots of arms/hands since they are what automatically come to mind when I think "reaching", so I told myself I needed to come up with a few ways to portray reaching WITHOUT the use of hands.

But I couldn't resist ONE...especially with all that lovely color (something I am in SORE need of these days). Thanks to the gorgeous cheery colors, this is my favorite of the week.

#1


#2

The inside of a telephone cord spiral. They help you reach things! (So does a telephone by the way.)



#3

This plant is very artsy, if you ask me. It has these long, spindly curls reaching every which way with just few leaves tucked on the end of each. This is how it looked when I received it so I am *PRETTY* sure I haven't killed it.


#4

It would have been interesting to see just how tall I could have made a tower that still allowed a trembling Corynn to balance atop (on tiptoe). But I didn't. See?! I am not THAT mean.


Actually, truth be told, I was a wee bit envious of her teetering. It took everything I had not to add a few objects and then throw her off so I could have a turn. I am SUCH a kid.

Who else was REACHING this week?!?!




This week's challenge is...................
LEARNING

In order to participate in these Foto Friday challenges, you must take a photo (or several) pertaining to the challenge WITHIN the challenge week and post it/them to your blog. When you do, please link back to this blog {you may use the button if you like} so that perhaps we can get lots of participants! (Because, you know, the more the merrier!) Then simply link to your Foto Friday post with Mr. McLinky here so that we all can visit you and compare notes...


For those of you new to this blog (or to Foto Friday's in general), each Friday we get a new photo challenge to work on for the week and we post our photos the next Friday and link back up here. Whatever your skill level, the goal is to get behind your camera and to begin, as you practice, to view subjects in a different light. To extend yourself and your concepts and ideas. To create ART instead of just snapping a picture. And to do it all while having FUN.
