Weekly Photo Challenge: Merge

The Weekly photo challenge from WordPress this week is Merge. The world is made up of many things. There is a saying that opposites attract, and this is true for relationships and other things. Let’s see what you can MERGE in a photo!

I have more fun with these bear slippers. Most people do a double-take when they see them, because they look so “real” when I’m walking in them. They actually look like they belong on me. 🙂 Kids have either been fascinated by or scared silly by them. Dogs and cats even react to them (one cat got so scared it “peed it’s pants” and ran off and hid). Rarely are these slippers ever ignored…

To me, they merge reality and fantasy into something almost believable!

Here are some other takes on Merge that I think are interesting:

What does merge mean to you? Does this photo portray merge in your mind? I’d love to hear your comments.


Weekly Photo Challenge: Growth

Weekly WordPress Photo Challenge: Growth. Share a picture that means GROWTH to you! Here are a couple of my takes…

Happiness is neither virtue nor pleasure nor this thing nor that but simply growth, We are happy when we are growing. – William Butler Yeats

If you’re a mama bear, everyone knows you mean business. You swat anyone who bothers your cubs. If your cubs get out of line, you swat them too. – Author Unknown


Here are some other examples of growth that I like:
