Participating in the first Phoneography Challenge is problematic for me. First problem — I don’t have a new marvelous phone with a camera, so I have to do the challenge my way –as a photo challenge. It won’t be a phoneography challenge for me. 😦

Church and town green

This week’s photo challenge topic is green. My favorite color is green; to me, green is the color of spring and nature. But where I live, green is also a noun. In New England, most small towns have a town green or town common for people to sit or gather for events.

Our town green had a wonderful display of flags by the veteran’s monument last week, but unfortunately I missed getting a picture of that. Today I saw spotlights in the ground preparing for the Christmas tree lighting event they have every year at the beginning of December.
