Pale is the Travel Theme this week at Where’s My Backpack. I love color…but I love pale! I’m a Gemini…what can I say!!
Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge this week is Textures! This photo was taken of me by a passerby as the sun was rising in San Francisco. I was on a solo trip through California in 2006, waiting for an Amtrak train, and had some time to spare, so I wanted to have my picture taken with these funky massive statues! If my memory serves me correctly, their texture was cool, hard, and ridged.
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.
