Weekly Weather: Rain

For this round of Weekly Weather collages I decided to do another atlas as my base. However, the pages/signatures came apart from the binding so I’ll be doing each two page spread separately and when I come to the end of the year or when we start repeating the weather topics, I’ll bind them all together.

This week’s topic is Rain (moisture condensed from the atmosphere that falls visibly in separate drops.)

What goes better with rain than umbrellas? (click on the image to bigify!)

Weekly Weather: Lightning

For this round of Weekly Weather collages I decided to do another atlas as my base. However, the pages/signatures came apart from the binding so I’ll be doing each two page spread separately and when I come to the end of the year or when we start repeating the weather topics, I’ll bind them all together.

This week’s topic is Lightning (the occurrence of a natural electrical discharge of very short duration and high voltage between a cloud and the ground or within a cloud, accompanied by a bright flash and typically also thunder.)

Well, blow me away with a thunderstorm and knock me over with lightning – I’ve been misspelling lightning!!!! I’ve got it right now, but not on the collage, nor on the calendar. Hmmm … that’s not the first spelling mistake I’ve made and it certainly won’t be the last. Ah, well, C’Est la Vie!

Weekly Weather: Dust Storm

For this round of Weekly Weather collages I decided to do another atlas as my base. However, the pages/signatures came apart from the binding so I’ll be doing each two page spread separately and when I come to the end of the year or when we start repeating the weather topics, I’ll bind them all together.

This week’s topic is Dust Storm ( a meteorological phenomenon common in arid and semi-arid regions. Dust storms arise when a gust front or other strong wind blows loose sand and dirt from a dry surface. Also called black blizzard & black rollers – terms used during the Dust Bowl of the 1930s; also called haboob.)

For the dust storm collage, I went with mostly desert scenes and a few pictures from National Geographic of an actual storm – with local residents praying for relief. The Virgin Mary is a bit of a twist since the men are most likely praying to God known to them by a different Name. But it reflects how truly helpless mankind is in the face of weather and how often we pray extra hard when suffering through something totally out of our control.

 

 

Weekly Weather: Choose Your Own

This week’s Weekly Weather topic is “Choose Your Own.” I chose “Hot” because while making the other collage for Hot I ran across some really cool fire images and wanted to do a separate spread for that. This is also the last post on the original Weekly Weather calendar that started in Spring 2016. Next week starts the new scheduled posts. I’m looking forward to new Weekly Weather collages!!!

To remind you, I altered an atlas with the weather-themed collages. To see the other entries, please click on the page “Weekly Weather Challenge.” (I will eventually update the page with all the links!)  Click on the badge below to find out about how to join the challenge!
