As you can easily surmise from looking at these photos…I love hats! This is the challenge at A Word in Your Ear! I didn’t really feel comfortable wearing hats when I was younger. I was a bit shy and felt it brought more attention to myself. Being almost 6 foot tall demanded enough attention as it was. As I’ve aged and become more comfortable in my skin…I realize hats are fun and they protect your face from the sun!
Lost in the Details is this week’s WordPress Photo Challenge! I’m still amazed that every time I participate in a challenge, I learn something new. I interpreted this challenge to mean when we take a photo…if we look closely…there is so much more to see. Some of the photos required cropping and I was pleased with the creativity I was able to utilize with choosing the photos and with the process of what part of the photo to crop.
This was one of my favorites. It’s a cropped version of the 2nd photo and was taken in Ft. Myers, Florida in November, 2012. I like the way the letters on the other side show through. It’s the simple things that make me happy!
Where’s My has a Weekly Travel Theme and this week it’s Bridges! I love bridges! They connect you to new experiences, people, places and fun!
This bridge at Camp Kern near Cincinnati, Ohio was fun to walk on and took us to the beginning spot for zip lining through the beautiful Autumn trees! It was extra special for me because it was just my son and I…that’s him walking up the bridge. Continue reading
Sue’s Photo Challenge this week at her blog…A Word in your Ear is “Industrial”. At first I wasn’t sure I had any photos that would portray this word…but…I did! I think that’s what’s so addictive about these photo challenges…searching through your photos and the sense of accomplishment when you find what you feel are the “perfect ones”!
Where’s My Backpack’s Travel Theme this week is Mountains. I love Mountains! I love to hike on them, look at them, and photograph them! I posted so many photos of Mountains recently with my “Hiking” series…I had to search through my thousands of photos for some I haven’t posted–or at least not recently.
I love to kiss and that’s the Photo Challenge for WordPress this week!
This Egyptian camel owner likes to kiss his camel!
I’ve been looking forward to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge this week because the theme is Black and White! I’ve been having lots of fun switching my photographs from color to black and white! I’m getting a better feel for which ones will look better or at least just as good black and white.

“Me, Myself and I”
This is my first time participating in the online adventure travel and photography magazine Let’s Be Wild Weekly Photo Challenge and this week the challenge is “Green”! If you’d like to vote for me…go here. Thanks very much!!
This is a “Hickory Horned Devil” that eventually morphs into a “Royal Walnut Moth” or “Regal Moth”. It looks like it has sunglasses on! It was about 4 inches long by 1 inch wide. It was laying on a hiking trail at Hocking Hills State Park, Ohio.
