The Weekly Photo Challenge for the last week of the year is to choose a favorite photo from the year. One single favorite photo wasn’t happening. I thought maybe the top 5 would work. But then I figured my favorite 17 of 2017 would be fun. Some of these are favorites because the quality, some because the subject, some just because. I’ll caption each one, because I just know you are waiting with baited breath to find out why I picked each pic! In no particular order: Continue reading “17 of 2017: WPC”
I’d been meaning to post these for ages, and this black and white photography challenge from Cee’s Photography to photograph “water” seemed like a good reason to finally follow through.

But I was going through my photos to pick out pics for the last photography challenge of the year and I noticed that I missed a couple of really good food items. Here goes….

The Bronx Zoo has a pride of sea lions. (I don’t believe the collective noun for sea lions is “a pride,” but it works!) They are so amusing to watch, and Clyde and Indy recently had a beautiful little calf (why sea lion babies are called calves instead of cubs–or the much more appropriate given their dog-like behavior, pups–is beyond me. But I digress.) The baby and Clyde are in the featured image above. You can recognize the baby because she’s still furry looking. You can recognize Clyde because he is mid-bark. I assume the female sea lion is Indy, the mom, but she could be one of the other ladies who lives there.
