Week 26, Theme 38 – Selfie

I’m still behind, but getting closer.  At least now I’m only a week behind.  I’ve been waiting for just the right sunny conditions for the theme “Selfie” and I found those conditions this week.  I was so happy, I posted two!

And there you have it, my “Selfie”.


Week 25, Theme 48 – Sun Flare

This theme has been a problem for me from day one.  I think that I’ve finally been able to come up with a fair example of Sun Flare”.  I particularly like the first image in the tree, however, the second image with the various colored dots is intriguing.  I believe the dots are caused by a dirty filter and the suns’ reflection off the dust particles on my filter.  Guess I need to clean it.

Week 24, Theme 51 – When the Wind Blows

Here I am again, behind by about 3 weeks.  Oh well, let’s see if I can catch up.  It seems like I have less time to do things since I retired, than when I was working. 🙂

Yesterday was a fitting day for one of our themes, “When the Wind Blows”  and to me, nothing is more beautiful than our flag blowing in the wind.

And there you have it – “When the Wind Blows”,  so blows the flag.

Week 23, Theme 23 – Lamp Posts

Fortunately I had these “Lamp Posts”  pictures stashed away.  In as much as the weather has not been cooperative enough to provide nice sunny days to create bright sunlight influenced photos, I’ll resort to this theme.  Under normal conditions, you would expect “Lamp Posts”  to be in urban areas, however, I shot both of these “Lamp Posts”  on trails in the woods in nature parks.


This “Lamp Post”  is nothing more than a wood post with a light at the top, but it serves the purpose of lighting up the trail.


This three lamp cluster appears to be of an older style; however, it has been modernized with the long life of CFS bulbs.
