Weekly Photo Challenge: Containers

Each little crayon is an individual container of color, just waiting to be turned into a beautiful masterpiece!

“The challenge this week… share your own vision of a container you find interesting. You can take the challenge as literally as you want — a box of chocolates, a broken bottle, your town’s water tank, an empty shell on the beach. Or go in a more figurative direction — from the skin that wraps our body to the comfort of a hug, we all constantly hold and are held by other things and other people.”

Weekly Photo Challenge: Contrasts

In contrast to so many other players of the game today, Tony Gwynn played his entire twenty year career for one team…the San Diego Padres.

However, there were no contrasts to this man’s game…he was simply one of the very best baseball players in my lifetime.

He was, and always will be “Mr. Padre”.

Tony Gwynn – (May 9, 1960 – June 16, 2014)

His endeavors on the field with a .338 career batting average, 5 gold gloves & 8 batting titles, were only surpassed by his greatness as a genuine good person.

Another good guy gone too soon.
