Week 51: Pencil

It should be no surprise (zero, nil, nada) that I turned to my colored pencils for this challenge.  I mean, I gave these pencils their own post – it was inevitable.  And I clearly have issues with school supplies.  Maybe I should have been a teacher?  Hold on… forgot who I was for a moment there… I can’t even imagine how horrible parent-teacher conferences would be… hilariously bad no doubt.

Here is my pencil:

Week 51: Pencil

Ta-Da!  A photo that I’m actually very happy with!  Paco and his macro magic to the rescue.  [Da da da daAHHHHHH!]  I actually tried several different views and different set ups.  I chose the one my eye kept going back to.  And I dig.  And I’m glad I dig because we only have one more week left in the challenge!

That’s right – only one more week left.  Time flies when you’re having fun, kids.  And the last subject to photograph is “mail”.  But until week 52 rolls around, head on over to our flickr group to see how others captured “pencil”.  A couple have already caught my eye so I’m hoping a few more will be added to the group later today.

Here’s to a happy Wednesday.  With no surprises.  Unless they involve cake.

Brooke - @katie – Eh, it’s just a challenge. No contest. But if it was, I’d give myself first place. My blog, my rules.
@Melissa – Thank you! I’m going to take a little break… see what we can come up with next.
@Wendi – I don’t speak French. But te amo texture too.
@Lisa – Pah! It’s because they’re still somewhat new… I’m a woman obsessed.

Rebecca - As someone who has just started teaching, let me assure you that the answer to that is a firm no. It will only threaten your love of stationary.
