Weekly Photo Challenge: Numbers


Taken last week on a stroll through this wonderful, historic, quaint village. ย More “numbers” to come later this week! (I hope.)

  1. Very good! I thought about taking a photo of a clock, but couldn’t find one as photogenic as yours. Beautiful!

  2. Love the picture of the clock. Very cool idea for the challenge. My Dad collects clocks so if you stay there for long the whole house comes alive with sound every quarter, half and full hour with chimes, ringing and cuckoos. You don’t get much sleep if you stay overnight and are a light sleeper.

    1. Thank you! I had a thing for chiming clocks years ago. Didn’t take lon listiening to chimes every fifteen minutes morning, noon and night for me to get over my fascination! LOL! Thanks for stopping by. Have a great Sunday! ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Cecelia, I have been away from your blog for awhile. First of all, your Fairfax clock photo is beautiful and so very clear – excellent focus. I especially like the four till three time that you captured.

    And – I just scrolled through your Uncommon Journey poem and was on your word “moving” when I heard Suzy Orman’s background voice mention “moving.” (My husband is channel changing between her and the Federer-Nadal French Open championship.) For me, it’s a spiritual happening when I hear someone speak the same word I am on in my reading. I am amazed at how often that happens.

    Now, my questions: Do I recall correctly that you used to have a Blogger platform? When did you switch to a Word Press platform? Which of their choices are you using? Was it easy to make the switch?

    And finally – to what do you attribute your increase in visitors who are leaving comments? Congratulations!

    1. Barbara, It is good to see you again. Thanks for stopping by. Glad you like the photo!

      I concur with you about the many ways and times spirituality interjects into our lives. Don’t always know what it means, in fact I hardly ever know what it means other than affirmation of who we are, where we are, and how we are living.

      This is the only platform I’ve blogged on, however I have changed themes a few times. . .always looking for the perfect theme. I think this one is worth keeping: simple, clean, attractive, easy to navigate, easy to read, etc. As to the increase in visitors, I started visiting a lot of other blogs to see what they were doing. I make a point of commenting on each blog (or most blogs…at this point, blogging is taking over my life…not that I mind, just that I am a student and as I near the end of the quarter I may have to step away from the blog for a bit). In addition, I really try to blog regularly so that I post something new at least two or three times a week (people keep checking back to see what is new.) Really serious bloggers will post two or three times a day! Next, I’ve joined blogging groups! Post-A-Week, Weekly Photo Challenge (both by wordpress) so that I connect with others who do the same. If you look down at the bottom of my page you will see badges for other groups I subscribe to, and one syndicated site (I am just starting that one.) The secret to increasing viewership is getting involved in the blogging world. There are so many more things I could be doing and would love to do, but school will be top priority for the next few years (ugh.) I love blogging and phototgraphy–LOVE both–but at this point they are not paying the bills so I’m in school preparing for a job (also doing something I love–mental health counseling) the purpose of which is to build a livable income so that I can do all this other stuff without feeling guilty.

      You have a wonderful niche, very interesting, I’ve never seen anyone else do what you do…I love it and I’m sure others will, too, if they know you are there. Look around for some of the women’s blogging groups to join (for starters–then expand) and start leaving your link whereever you go. I find that now few of my close friends and family ever visit my sight (tired of hearing me yapyapyap!) but I’ve made some wonderful friends in the blogosphere and it is fun! Good luck. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. It is in the historical district in Fairfax. I hope to get into the town sometime soon just to spend a day walking around and shooting pics. Very quaint, “cute” place. History too! Thanks for stopping in.

    1. Thankyou T2T! I’m glad you like both the clock and the new theme! It took a while and a lot of experimenting, but I think I finally got it right! I appreciate your comments and thank you for stopping by. Have a great day!
