Inspiration Challenge #76: at the bus stop

Inspiration Challenge #76: at the bus stop

Greetings from snowy New England. We’re starting our week off with a layer of white stuff. I’m not going to get too upset since it’s not going to be very cold today, and I have to admit that it’s kind of festive. I found this week’s inspiration piece in warmer times. Last Summer while in Boston I saw the following at a bus stop and immediately stopped to snap a photo. It screamed ad challenge to me!


It’s perfect for times when you have a very large number of photos. Hmm…when did I last take a ridiculous amount of photos? Ah, yes. The Christmas card photo shoot. Why do many you ask? All because I had one uncooperative subject. We did get one in the end but boy, did he make it hard work! Here’s my take on the inspiration:

I also make the mistake of thinking it would be cute to use a string of lights in the photo. That didn’t make it to the final photo either. I do really try to make things simple, honest! :) Do you take a photo for your holiday card? And if you do, is it as difficult for you as it is for me?

  1. The photos are charming and so is your layout. Merry Christmas, Paula.

  2. I cheated and took the best photos from throughout the year. My kids are pretty cooperative but you never know. Wouldn’t you know it, though, as soon as I ordered the cards (Shuittterfly) suddenly holiday photo ops, from the kids with snowmen to a scuba diving Santa at the Seattle Aquarium popped up. Sheesh.
