You begged me.
But you know how I am; I'm going to do it anyway.
It's time again for a catch-up on the 30 Days Of Photography Challenge.
The challenge, the hideously-deformed offspring of bloggers Ziva and Mike, sets a different topic every day for a month; one topic, one photo, every day. Last week, I did the first fourteen days in one entry.
Hell yeah, I'm a rulebreaker.
Today? Another seven days. More bloody weirdness.
Actually (that most English of words), I rather like these. Of course, by the time you read this, I'll be behind everyone again; Ziva posts early, the young scamp.
So as ever, I blame Ziva. You can blame Mike if you like.
Anyway, here we go.
Day 15 – My Favourite Food
I was going to photograph it, honestly. But it was so hot and delicious, and demanded to be ravished.
Day 16 - Bullshit
There's important things going on in the world. But we're fed this shit. Bread and circuses.
Day 17 – Coins
The contents of my suit pocket. And it's a rare day; I'm carrying money. Yes, yes, and a nut; shiny, isn't it?
Day 18 - QWERTY
I admit it; I'm unconventional. And a fan of Godzilla; I'm sure I'm not the only one.
Day 19 - Steel
We all like shiny stuff. Even when blackened and tarnished. In the bathroom, though? Look, it works; go with it.
Day 20 - Nails
Yes, I had to squeeze hard to hang onto them; it ended up like a scene from HELLRAISER.
Day 21 – Broken
They're resurfacing my housing estate. Every day, a different road closure. The roads torn up again, bricks everywhere. Breaks my heart.

Admirable effort, Indigo! Are you still pulling the nails out of your hand? As for your mad Qwerty Scrabble skills... I call BS on Godzilla. No proper nouns allowed!ReplyDelete
Hey Paula! Thank you, but I think you'll find Godzilla goes wherever he wants. Indigo xDelete
Great work, Indigo, and thanks for playing along. I particularly like your photo for Nails.ReplyDelete
Morning Mike! I tell you, a photo of Cambridge right now would have made a better STEEL; utterly grey, overcast and relentless. And thank you, NAILS seems to have caught the imagination for some reason. IndigoDelete
I like your choices very much.ReplyDelete
About the steel in the bathroom, though, maybe I am a bit puzzled by that. Were you desperate for coffee? Is it even a coffee pot? Were you getting water for the plants? Was your water shut off and that was your replacement? So many questions :)
Hey Jen! It's fully installed, so I can have an espresso in the shower. True story. Indigo xDelete
Wait... did you change that last photo? Or am I just going crazy(ier)? Like Jenny, I was wondering about the espresso pot in the bathroom. Thanks for the explanation... makes perfect sense to me!ReplyDelete
Hey Paula! Me? Change a photo? of course not. I didn't change that other one, either. Roth xDelete
Espresso in the shower??? I'm impressed. Great catch up photos.ReplyDelete
Hey Danielle! But of course! I don't know how people get through it otherwise; warm water makes me sleepy. And thank you, I enjoyed taking them. Thanks for dropping by =) IndigoDelete
Can we also get a picture of the plate that held dessert?ReplyDelete
Hey Pearl! I'd love to, but it was gooseberry pie and I got a bit overenthusiastic. Yes, a true CandyMan moment (the Willy Wonka one, not Clive Barker) - "you can even eat the dishes" Roth xDelete
you have been busy since you last posted!ReplyDelete
Hey Diva! Nice to see you again! Bless you, but no - it was a flurry of Sunday activity; I've been a lazy cuss all week! =) More soon! IndigoDelete
You carry a nut in your pocket? Oh well, some days you feel like a nut. Some days you don't.ReplyDelete
Hey Dufus! Yes. Sometimes more than one. But only for special occasions. IndigoDelete
I like your way of playing along with this crazy 30 day insanity. Maybe posting in bulk helps keep the stress level down?ReplyDelete
Hey LaughingMom! Ah, again, no. Doing it all in one day (I'm not bright enough to carry my camera during the week) makes it much, MUCH worse. Mind you, the blind panic and desperation makes for trips to the hardware store to snap photos like NAILS. I almost got thrown out when I didn't buy anything. Indigo =)Delete
You amaze me. Mother always said you were easy to love but hard to depend on.ReplyDelete
Well done, Indigo. Well done indeed! My favorite one of this bunch is definitely NAILS. Wow!ReplyDelete
Hey Mia! It seems we have a winner! Good grief, if you knew what I did to get it... And thank you, I;d glad you're enjoying these. Indigo xDelete
Lovely photos, Indigo! I'm particularly fond of NAILS, but the symbolism of the BROKEN road also appeals to me a great deal.. Wonderful work. Now, about this rule-breaking.. you know what happens to people who break the rules, don't you?ReplyDelete
Hey Ziva! Yeah, I liked broken too. Something about the beautifully weighty grey bricks, the smooth sand and (yes) my footprints in it. As for rulebreaking, I'd like a hundred other cases to be taken into consideration. Wowsers, Z! Indigo xDelete
way to catch up. nice ones in there.ReplyDelete
Thanks V! Just been over to your place... YOU BEAT ME TO THE SCRABBLE! Gagh! Tho you didn't have Godzilla in yours, pfft =) IndigoDelete
You're a rule breaker and a wild one. I'd have just said "forget it" and skipped forward.ReplyDelete
Hey Jamie! Never one to be snared by mere convention, it's true. Still, I'm not a quitter. A slacker, for sure. IndigoDelete
I missed your 1st post. How did that happen? Now I'll have to go find that one so I'm caught up with you.ReplyDelete
As much as I like the nail photo, I've got say my favorite is Neutral simply because trying to figure out how to get from point A to point B has been a nightmare for close to 2 years with all the road closures. Our winter was so crazy mild the crews worked almost year round.
Hey Cheryl! I hope you found it! It's here. I'm glad you like BROKEN; it's become a big part of escaping the estate to get to work. And believe me, I don't need much of a deterrent. See you again, IndigoDelete
All of these are amazing... but my favorite is BULLSHIT. You NAILED it. Get it!??ReplyDelete
Hey Katherine! Welcome! And thank you, you're too kind. Glad you dug BULLSHIT, it makes me so MAD! And yes, you're a bad woman making jokes like that. See you again! IndigoDelete
Nice work! Now tell me, how many points did QWERTY net you?ReplyDelete
Hey Mike! A very respectable 46. Still, not stellar. And thank you. IndigoDelete
Nice photos and I especially like your Nails one!ReplyDelete
Hey Coco! I must admit it's my favourite of this bunch, tho QWERTY makes me smile even now. IndigoDelete
I love the nails one. And the pizza one. ermm....ReplyDelete
Hey Kato! Oi, did you take my last slice?! Indigo xDelete
I think if I had tried to photogrph a pizza it would've looked like your pic too! :)ReplyDelete
Hey MomLaner! Yes, I as having a little trouble with the depth of field, and it seemed to work so much better with the box empty. But where to put it, where to put it... Indigo xDelete
