This antique table sits in an old two-room schoolhouse... the same one my grandmother attended as a young girl. Can't you just imagine kids sticking their pencils in those holes along the edge? I love old schoolhouses. I wish I lived next door to this one. I would do all of our homeschooling in it!
The Homeschool Post has resurrected their A B See Meme (an alphabetical photo meme), and I've been excited to play again. This time they are putting FIVE of the best alphabet pictures on their blog each week to showcase them, linking to the photographer's blog. [I say photographer loosely, since you don't have to be any sort of pro to join the meme.] Also, they have a Flickr Group set up just for the meme - so you don't even technically have to be a blogger to join... you just have to have an alphabetical themed photo and a flickr account!
My A this week is Antique. Although, I had so many I could have picked from.
The meme is posted on Sundays each week and you don't necessarily have to start on the letter A or go in any particular order or at any particular speed... and you can skip weeks or not - up to you entirely.
I figured someone out there might get stumped on what to take a picture of... so... being the anal retentive type (there's another A for you), I thought I would sort through the dictionary and give you some suggestions for a photo to add (it has to be added by Saturday to count for this week's post).
Here are some great A photo ideas:
act of God
Now don't tell me you can't think of an A word. No excuses. Get clicking!
You have until Saturday to load your picture on the Flickr group and be considered for the top five that will be displayed next week. One top photo will move on to win a prize once a month, too! The first give away is "Understanding Exposure" - which happens to be the very same book my kids and I are using to study photography for our homeschool this year. It is awesome!
Can you tell I'm excited? Naw!
