Saturday Photohunt: Lacy

I came upon this gorgeous tree in a little waterfowl park on Saturday. As soon as I looked closely at it, I thought of this week's theme of LACY...

Saturday Photohunt: Clouds

Some day flying might grow old to me, but so far I find it thrilling every time! I enjoy watching the scenery when we're low enough to see land, but I also find the clouds fascinating...rising up through them and then seeing that huge expanse of white fluffiness. My take on this week's theme is...

Saturday Photohunt: Wet

As soon as I saw this week's theme, I remembered a rainy evening in Barcelona...the stones of Plaça Reial were shiny and wet and everything looked oh, so beautiful!!

Saturday Photohunt: Rest

I've gone in a different direction for this week's theme of rest...

What is the rest of this story?
Once upon a time in Rome...we encountered a wedding party just outside Santa Maria in Aracoeli. The bride and groom posed for photos, shared a toast, and then rode off in their chauffeur driven Bentley convertible. Were they as wealthy as they appeared, or had they saved up for a huge wedding splurge? I wonder if they were an interfaith couple because the wedding took place in a Roman Catholic church and the groom was wearing a (Jewish?) skull cap. And what do you suppose is behind that peculiar look the bride is giving the groom in the last photo?

Saturday Photohunt: Sunset

I thought it would be really hard deciding which of my hundreds (maybe thousands) of sunset photos to post...but as soon as I opened my photo folder, my eyes lit on a series of pics from one evening this past March. Aha, I thought, I'll go with "biggest change in a half hour time frame" as my pick for this week's theme.

The sunset March 7th was incredible...it began as a blazing ball of white light slowly descending behind the black line of trees...

...and a half hour later, the sky was awash in colour...

Saturday Photohunt: Skies

I missed Saturday but here are my pics for this week's photohunt theme "skies". These are the two ends of a massive cloud formation that rolled over my house a few years ago. It was amazing! We stood out watching it for a long time...and then the rain came pounding down!

Saturday Photohunt: Azure

When I went looking for azure photos...I discovered a whole collection of photos I've taken of churches, towers, statues against a deep azure expanse of sky. Here are a few of them...

Saturday Photohunt: Water

The trouble with this week's theme is...where to start?? I have a ton of water photos...lakes, rivers, beaches, our pool, brooks, puddles, raindrops on roses...and more.

Being utterly fascinated by water, I could post a whole photo album (or seven) on this week's theme...but this is the image that caught my eye as I browsed through my collection. It's a small brook in a local park. I love the play of light and shadow and the way the liquidness comes through even in a photo.
