Photo Blogging Challenge – Your World (April 2020)

To a greater or lesser degree, COVID-19 has triggered change for pretty much everyone. Since we've been working (and working out) from home for well over 10 years now, we're coping with fewer changes to our world than many people are: mostly lower level challenges, like figuring out how to order groceries for pick-up when then next pick-up window is 10 days to 2 weeks out, how best to support elderly neighbours and extended family members, adjusting to virtual choir rehearsals and wondering what the 2020 hiking/biking season will look like.

Photo Blogging Challenge – Money (February 2020)

According to a song from the 1966 hit musical Cabaret, money makes the world go 'round. While not scientifically accurate, money does affect our daily lives like few other things. It's one of the most challenging topics of conversation and can really put a strain on relationships. We work for money. We exchange it for food, housing, transportation, clothing, taxes, utilities, insurance and more. We try to save some for retirement. We may to get creative in the kitchen or when shopping, to make sure money out doesn't exceed money in. This post doesn't include any genius tips for balancing your budget; instead, I applied imagination to photograph money in a few ways that aren't strictly representational.
