Green is GREAT!


My adult model
a man-
but not just any man-
The best man I know
My Daddy.
He taught me to give
the green I get away
by helping others.


My kid model
My own kid : )
He didn't want to help model today
hence the tire swing in the background!
We love recycling at our house.
We try to be as green as possible.
You'll love it.
I'm not kidding.

Excellent photos! I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with this week. I of course have no creativity this week so I think I'm sitting this week out. LOL

This weeek is going to be so fun and diverse! I loved your ideas of "green". You were so creative!

Shae said...

I really like your take on the theme. Great job.

Pam D said...

Oooh, I knew there'd be some greenbacks somewhere in these entries! Cool pic of your dad! And who doesn't love BEING green? Those are both great entries...

I love BOTH of these.

eye-catching use of gReeN in the adult photo... everyone likes that kind of gReeN.

and i love that the kid entry. it incorporates our current 'save the world' gReeN... by recycling.

a picture speaks a thousand words... right?

Clever! Money and recycling. Neither one of those even entered my little head! Now that I see the money pic, it made me think of a picture I could have used. Oh well, I've already posted, and I'm headed to bed! Have a great week!

Heather said...

Like your interpretations of the theme this week (I too wish I liked green apples as much as cheese cake!).

Pineapple Princess said...

I love these photos! Nothing better than the cold, hard green stuff! It's nice to hear that you know exactly how to help others and you are doing it! Excellent photo from a kid who didn't want to participate! :) I bet he makes you proud.

Corey~living and loving said...

Great choices for the theme. I especially like the last one. very GREEN of you! :)

Jennifer said...

Love the pics!
Good for you recycling! We recycled a lot when we lived in CA, but it doesn't seem to be "the thing" here in Alaska. I'm hoping that will change soon.

K said...

Definitely could use more or that kind of 'green' (in the first pic)!

mimi said...

beckyjomama said...

Great shots!!! Love that kinda green :)

April said...

Awww...that picture of your daddy is too sweet! How creative you are with him holding that wad of cash. Did he make a run for it when your photo session was over? :) Kaishon...what more can I say? His smile gets me every time! Good luck in the contest! Hope things are working out better for you...I'm still praying!

KMilty said...

Love them both! The one of your dad made me laugh. I didn't even think "green" as in money. The look in his eyes says it all! They're so twinkly (is that a word?)

heidiannie said...

Great "green" interpretations! I love your dad's picture with the green hat and a handful of "green"!

Christina said...

LOVE your green entries!!! I sent some green to my son for St. Patrick's Day ~ everyone loves the green of cash!

Andrea said...

Hooray for being "Green" and not just the color. I am a big recycler too and just wish everyone would do it. It's really not hard! What's hard for me is throwing things in the trash!

Becca said...

So creative with the green this week! I didn't even think of anything except the color haha :-) great shots!

Nap Mom said...

Green = recycle! Fabulous!!! I love it. I wish that I had thought of it myself.

Jen's Whimsical Life said...

GREAT pics! VERY ingenious! Thanks for stopping by each week and leaving kind comments! I don't comment as much because my IE locks up when I start opening links. Makes it hard to see all these great pics!!!

I love these pictures! and the theme.

antoinettemariew@blogspot.com said...

really, really cool how you incorporated the money for pops and the 'green earth' thing with kaishon...really creative! i got quite a big chuckle from you thinking i was sophisticated...i'm so crude it's sometimes not funny..words that would describe me...outspoken, humorous, adventurous, sarcastic, creative..the list goes on, but see sophisticated isn't on there, LOL! it's the name, throws everybody, lol...blessings...

Powell Family said...

these have so much personality! love your creativity!

Mireille said...

Great ideas!!

Dot O said...

Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful! Doesn't get any greener than what your dad's got there.

And your son's pic - just plain adorable. Glad he still cooperates with you. In a few years, you'll probably hit the same obstacle I've hit with my son for photos - not cool to not be cool! LOL.

Elaine at Matters of the Heart) said...

Very creative shots. I love your little guy's smile, adorable.

Sparkette said...

Martha said...

Love the photo of your Dad. I wish mine was still alive. Photography was something we both had a passion for. I miss him.

Your son is so cute. I find my kiddo wanting me to take her pic less and less (she's 12), so I guess it will be the pets until they refuse too
