Day 3 – 5 Day Black & White Photo Challenge

I’ve been nominated by Lucile de Godoy ( to participate in a 5 day/5 story black & white photo challenge. You must check out her blog, she’s one very smart, cool lady living in one of my favorite cities, Amsterdam, and her photography is spectacular. I’m pleased to call her a new friend ☺


Her name is Mariko 🙂

Such a pleasant face, soul, attitude…her name is Mariko, she kindly allowed me to photograph her…up until that point she was staring off into the lower middle distance at the subway doors with a more serious expression. Yet then I ask her for her photo and she gave me this. We chatted, I learned her name she learned my blog name as we tumbled up the escalator together, off we went into our separate daily lives…I hope richer for the experience. I know I am.

For day 3, I’d like to invite Khloe at faburlifekhloe to join me in this challenge.

The rules of the 5 Photos-5 Stories challenge are:
1) To post a photo every day for 5 days
2) To write a story to accompany your photo for 5 days (this can be fiction or non-fiction, a page, a paragraph or a poem)
3) To nominate a different person each day

      Oh that’s so wierd I wonder why that is? I lost one of my blogger friends Asariels Muse for some reason she got ‘unfollowed’ but I certainly didn’t do it and now how the heck am i going to find her??? Damn it drives me that there isn’t a search tool here.
      Sorry you’re sick again??? Damn this winter too. If I’ve asked you this before I apologize, where on the East Coast are you? New York? Maine? Just curious. I have a map in my head ☺

    She has such a beautiful smile.. I often stared into the walkway of the train myself whenever I’ve been on a long commute, moment of reflection I suppose 🙂
