Black and White

December was my final month on Facebookand for weeks a “Black and White Challenge” floated around with specific rules for posting and tagging.

I am not one to appreciate or engage in social media posting and tagging games, but alas, I was finally tagged by a friend. Spending way too much mental energy deciding what to do (and hence confirming a decision I had already subconsciously made), I decided to play along with the picture part, but not the tagging.

Each day I took a random, real photo. No explanation, no people, according to the rules. The pictures explain themselves.

Here are the seven black and white photos taken from a life that is not so black and white.

Day 1

Day 2

Day 3

Day 4

Day 5

Day 6

Day 7

If you are on Facebook, did you take the challenge? How do you feel about posting and tagging games? Which of my pictures resonates the most with you? Do share! I am curious.

    I love picture 6. It’s homey and welcoming, like being with you. I do not do any fb games, repost requests, etc. The b&w picture game, however, was one I actually enjoyed seeing on my wall from other people’s posts.

      I enjoyed seeing the pictures too which is probably why I struggled to decide if I wanted to participate. In the end it was my own game. Thanks for playing and sharing. Picture 6 is the side porch door that welcomes many as long as they are willing to brave the dog. Come visit anytime!

    I was tagged, and didn’t participate. I recognize that nobody can force me to accept this challenge, and I didn’t have the time (or memory anyway) to do it and stick with it. Being a “D” personality causes me to dislike being tagged or pressured to perform something I didn’t choose. If I’d wanted to do it, I would have done so without tagging anyone else.

    I DO like your pictures!

    Day 7 : name spelled CORRECTLY with a heart on your coffee cup. Not just slap dashed. Your being present with directing/ musical giftings all combined/ collide in this. ❤️Love you.
    Facebook is trying to get back to fun and friends and family. Removing the newsfeed etc…
    I think games can be fun and love the option to participate or just scroll by. Tagging photos is where I stop.

      Thanks for noticing/ reminding me. I heard about the Facebook changes and am curious. Keep me posted. Mostly I love seeing you here. Thanks for stopping by. I love you.

    Day 2 … you make delightful, fun spaces.

    I enjoy seeing the challenges that go on, but don’t personally want to participate in tagging others.
