Weekly Photo Challenge: Frame

WM Sibling frame

Wear black and drink the gallery wine.
Formulate an intellectual opinion.
Consider your emotions.
Show so much tooth your lips stick to your gums.
Know your work-in-progress is a masterpiece.
Be open-minded about the frame.

(WordPress Photo Challenge is a weekly prompt to share a photo–I enjoy twisting these macro prompts to share our micro life here on the Colorado prairie. My photos are taken with my phone, on my farm. No psych, definitely not high tech.)



      • LOL Not to me–to my untrained (in detecting age or lineage of horses) it could have been mother/daughter, father/son, sire/dam, or just “some white rescued horses” for all I know. But nonetheless, it was still perfect, in a generally un-perfect world.

  1. Work in progress, rings a bit like “she has potential”, which both irks me (Can’t I ever be accomplished at something?) and is a reminder that I keep seeking out the next “thing” (which always includes at least one horse thing… okay many horse things). The online exercise coach was confessing that it’s always a struggle so best learn to be at peace with that, which is both “oh no” and reassuring. But a person does need puppy tummies and sunshine a lot of days.

    • I hate that “she has potential” connotation, too. What judgmental gibberish. To my ears, work-in-progress means a place in time; a snapshot in the infinite creativity involved in the masterpiece. I take the long view at this age. But I’m lucky, I survived the cottage industry that pokes artists and authors insecurities. Ignore the doubters. Thumb your nose and keep creating. And puppy bellies. (Thanks, Joan, for your honesty.)

  2. Anna…I so look forward to your essays, stories and photo blogs appearing in my e-mail box…the arrival always makes me smile before I open to read. Today’s especially gave me many chuckles! I am hoping you have another book in the works…and are enjoying the Colorado life!

    • Thanks, Sharon. Sometimes these photo challenges are like taking candy from children. Which I apparently think is fun. AND yes, the is a book in process now, hopefully by the first of the year. I actually have a blog for that, too. Again, thanks for reading. https://annablake.com/
