Invisible Images Post

Last week John from My Viewfinder challenged me to the "Invisible Images Post." (I often run out of time and don't get to these challenges, but I thought I'd give it a try!) As explained in his post, here are the rules:

What is an Invisible Image?

As bloggers we tend to collect images on our computer for later use. They could be any type of image that you had intended to use somehow. Often they are photos headed for the family site, or quirky images that get sent to friends via email, they could have been intended to be part of a blog post, or, they are images that have been sent to or found by you on the internet, with no real purpose in mind. The point is, for whatever reason, we all tend to have quite a stash of images.And despite our best intentions, many of these images just hang around on our c drive collecting dust. For whatever reason, it’s these forgotten and never used images that we are referring to here as Invisible Images.

This is the basic assignment:

Take 5 images that you have stored on your computer and post them, each with a title and/or a single line description of what the image is, or represents, or means to you. Any image used for this post must never have been used for any purpose by you before.

It was hard for me to find some images due to technical difficulties (I can't get my images off of my old computer!) So I had to use only fairly recent ones. But here are mine.

Sunflower at an organic farm in Blooming Grove, New York, Fall 2007

Bank Building (soon to be courthouse annex), Bellefonte, Pennsylvania, Fall 2007

Shiny building (unknown), New York, NY, 2008

Blue Rocks, Nova Scotia, Summer 2007

Beautiful walk in Massachusetts, summer 2007

Instead of tagging particular people, I challenge any and all readers who feel like it to try the Invisible Images challenge on their blogs. A good Monday to all!

Lori I loved all the invisible images. That's a great idea. I will have to look through mine too.
Have a great week...I really like the sunflower, and the last one with the green and trees.

I shall have a look through mine tonight. Like the stroll through M.

I love the shiny building with the reflections and the blue rocks from Nova Scotia - send me any of your invisible images and I'll do *something* with them for sure.

Great idea Lori. I really like all your choices!
I'm going to look through my photos and see if I can do the same!

Gudl said...

I love that photo of the old building next to the shiny new one.

The contrast is so distinct and clear. Best photo I've seen in weeks.

These are all interesting, but I like the "Shiny Building" photo best. You do these old/new building views so well!

I really like the skinny building shot and the Bellefonte one, I know exactly which building your at. It has a clock on the corner. For years I never noticed the clock and posted it once. You notice a little more when you start taking photos about everyday.

wow...nice photos....some I am sure you will/would use! I will see what I can come up with but like you...I can't access my old computer but I will try!
