Thematic Photographic - Let's get dirty

"Gardening is about enjoying the smell of things growing in the soil, getting dirty without feeling guilty, and generally taking the time to soak up a little peace and serenity." - Lindley Karstens


Carmi, from Written Inc. blog, wants us all to get a bit dirty.  In the sense of that unfavorable word, dirt.


What did one duck say to the other duck?  "Do we really want to get dirty?"

So sad really.  Our snow season hasn't arrived yet, and pulling up behind this truck, I'm frightened about what's soon to come!

A Hipstamatic photo!
Okay, sure I appear to be sitting in quite a mess don't I?  In reality, there definitely is dirt everywhere.  There's also a thick cloud of bonfire smoke with a dusting of, well dust particles floating throughout the air.  Where am I?
Sitting among the fairies and wee people of the Renaissance Fair.
Trust me, there was a lot of dirt to be had!

Yes, I am a car fan.  Naturally, once I realized I parked behind a Tesla automobile of some model unknown to me, without haste I grabbed my cell phone for proof of it!  Unfortunately, I was incredibly disappointed when later I discovered how DIRTY my windshield was!
Let's not get dirty, when shooting a one-time-chance photo.

Mostly this photo looks relatively boastful, of sun, clouds and that pure white stuff, but it's not all that wonderful to walk on.
Let's get dirty while we walk the dogs in this muddy slop!

That is an impressive pond-full of duckweed. And ducks!

Looks like you had fun at the Fair. Great shot!

I'm visiting via's Carmi's Thematic Photographic. I am particularly fond of that duck photo. I can just imagine the feathers they will be leaving behind following their preening.

Terrific set of photos! And impressive duck weed! That is a lovely portrait of you - your smile shines right through the dirt!
