Studio 365: Day 333

Day 333

A trio of threes for today and perhaps the the most literal representation of the word trio, unfortunately a week late for last week’s Photo Challenge. Nevertheless on this three hundred and thirty third day of the year I have been ruminating on threes all day. It’s amazing just how many exist in our memory bank; here are ten of them:

  • Those three blind mice never had a chance.
  • I wonder if the three coins are still in the fountain?
  • Goldilocks and her three bears.
  • Prokofiev and his love for those three oranges.
  • What about the three billy goats…so gruff!
  • Athos, Porthos and Aramis meet monsieur d’Artagnan, he’d like to join your guard.
  • Yes sir, Yes sir, Three bags full…and don’t forget the little boy who lives down the lane.
  • That third little pig knew to build his (or was it her) house with bricks…on your way big, bad wolf.
  • The Three Graces – beauty, charm and joy.
  • The Tricolour, together with Liberté, Égalité and Fraternité.

…and so many more.  Why not add some of your own.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Transition

In November 2013 for the Weekly Photo Challenge: Layers I posted the progress from blank canvas to finished painting of the beautiful Cypress Alleyway at Castello di Reschio in Umbria, Italy. Since two years have now gone by this week’s Photo Challenge: Transition seemed to be the perfect excuse to re-purpose Birth of a Painting. I hope you agree.
