(Weekly Photo Challenge: My 2012 in Pictures) Runners-Up!


All images (c) Stephanie Glennon 2012


I jumped the gun.  Hopped the horse.  Prematurely flipped the cyber-page.

Just over a week ago I spent hours reviewing every photograph I’d taken during 2012 in order to pick one favorite from each month, to accompany one favorite post from each month of this blog’s first year.

Some of the choices were difficult to make, but I’ve just been handed a chance to share the runners-up.   To change it up a little, I’m going to add some back story. . .in haiku form.

In my defense, I’m recovering from a holiday influenza-fest and remain punchy (and not in the good, Christmas bowl-of-cheer way).


A cranberry bog/cream curving under crimson/half-light or half-dark?

Our children’s music/made so many ways, all notes/help refill my heart

Bright orange sunset/missing only Jim’s blue-greens/still stuns me at dusk

Whimsical bunny/cow-sized, near a road, stops me/Who will believe it?

I don’t like eggplant/but its colors are gorgeous/indigo from earth

Moving day brought me/to a bright windy sidewalk/graced by cabbage rose

First day back in court/began with another storm/sculpting an Iris

Jim’s wreath became home/to an elaborate nest/hatching three robins

A sun back-lit leaf/fluttered against another/I see hearts, always

Kyoto was cold/cherry blossoms just starting/to peek from their buds

Wind-carried prayers/fluttered on papers, temples/in mountains and air

I thought it would be/surrounded by hydrangea/but Jim sent just one
