"Z" is for ZEBRA PRINT
“I asked the Zebra, "Are you black with white stripes? Or white with black stripes? And the zebra asked me, "Are you good with bad habits? Or are you bad with good habits? Are you noisy with quiet times? Or are you quiet with noisy times? Are you happy with some sad days? Or are you sad with some happy days? Are you neat with some sloppy ways? Or are you sloppy with some neat ways? And on and on and on and on and on and on he went. I’ll never ask a zebra about stripes........again.” ~ Shel Silverstein
WOW! Thanks for your overwhelmingly kind comments on yesterday's "Forever Festive" table setting photo. I seriously considered not doing table settings this year.
Final photo submission for Donna McCommon's "Alphabet Challenge"
"Z" was challenging to photographically depict; so, I created this display comprised of zebra print themed items that I had around the house - stationery, candle holder, and note cards. The pink envelopes were in the package of notecards. You've seen the black plate, marbles, and candle holder in previous table settings. As far as the marbles, let's just say when I'm not looking for lost ones, I'm shooting them:). I added the border and text with PicMonkey.

Donna, thank you for proposing this challenge; it was a lot of fun and there were some phenomenal postings each Sunday. For me, "Q, U, X, and Z" were the most challenging alphabets to interpret, although the hunt certainly sharpened my vision and kept my creative juices flowing. Will there be another alphabet or any other challenge?
I also echo the sentiments of fellow SmugMuggers who are members of the Daily Photos Community. Being a member has enhanced my life immensely. As many of you know or have guessed, I am in some ways, a private person, but sharing my daily photos and commentaries with the SmugMuggers in this community have made me feel a part of a caring community of photographers with a like passion for photography. In a small way, I get to share a portion of my world and thoughts, as well as experience your world through your photos. I feel free and welcomed here! So, with that said, I hope and pray that SmugMug does not do away with this community and that they support other communities, as well!
Be blessed and share the rest!
