Week 22, Theme 34 – Patterns

One day when I was wandering around Bradenton’s Riverwalk looking for some photo subjects, I took this picture of the sidewalk simply because the morning dampness had accentuated the expansion joints and emphasized the “Patterns”.  After looking at the image on my computer, I realized that I had captured some other “Patterns” – The pilings supporting the railroad trestle in the background.

Week 4, Theme 41 – Single Color on Black & White

Selective color or “Single Color on Black & White” is something that I have never played around with so this challenge gave me something new to have some fun with.  Riverwalk in downtown Bradenton along the Manatee River never fails to provide photo ops and this visit was no exception.  There is a lot of color in the children’s playground area, notwithstanding lots and lots of petunias.  A perfect opportunity to experiment with presenting a couple of examples of “Single Color on Black & White”.

Week 20 – 44. That’s Dangerous

This afternoon Barb and I took a ride to enjoy the spring like weather.  We had no destination in mind and wound up at Riverwalk in Bradenton.  While Barb strolled along the river I went to the Skate Park and watched the “kids” burn up energy and have a  good time.  They don’t just use skateboards, but also in-line skates, scooters and bikes.  In fact I guess anything with wheels that is leg powered qualifies.  The stunts they were doing and practicing were awesome, but to me I can sum it up with two words – “That’s Dangerous”.
