Weekly Photo Challenge: Free Spirit


I was at an art gallery and saw a framed photo similar to this. I inquired the where about is this area and they told me approximately were it was. Fifteen or so miles south and 9 miles west on a dirt road,I didn’t think I’d ever find it. It was worth the drive because the area was gorgeous. I have pictures to show for it.

I haven’t figured out what I was going to do with this photo, because of the ducks. With this weeks challenge it works for me. What could be more freer than some wild ducks?

Most of the time when you see a peacock in an area it is to be, like a watch dog. They are allowed to roam free to keep watch or they’re just for show. They sure can be noisy and vicious.

I love photographing these little creatures. They just amazes me how they can stop in mid air and just stay in a holding pattern. Sometimes they wait there for their turn, other times they attack and chase the other humming birds away.

When I was trying to photograph the humming birds, this day, there were some large birds that kept feeding at the humming bird feeder. I tried to get a picture of those birds but they were just to quick for me. Never did get a picture. It was strange to me because I’ve  never seen anything like that before.

This little guy was cute as heck and the guy was either brave or stupid. The chipmunk was a wild creature and it could have bitten him. It was a photo moment and I couldn’t resist taken their picture.

I was traveling along the ridge of the Grand Canyon taking pictures,I’ve been here before, this time I wanted to improve on what I did last time. What a breath taking experience and views. This time I was looking for some shots that popped and would have been worth the trip, was grateful that I accomplished  what I came for. I felt if I came away with a couple of really good photos, I’d be happy.  This photo below is one of those shots.

Years ago went to Hawaii on a photo travel trip with my class. I took a picture of a water falls that was  really good. I entered it in the Los Angeles County Fair and won an Honorable Mention. I was  told that if I had a person at the top or bottom of the falls it would have taken a gold medal. So when I saw these two people on that rock, over looking the canyon, Click. Click.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Fleeting Moment


I was thinking what am I going to do today for this weeks challenge. I noticed a couple of bike riders riding passed my motor home. So what the heck this is what I came up with.

This fleeting moment is when the truck was whole and in good condition and the next moment it was a wreck. I’m sorry!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Friendship


This is my take on friendship. If you guessed, they are my granddaughters.

On a trip to old Savannah,GA to eat at Paula Deen’s Restaurant, I couldn’t resist taking these and many more photos of our excursion. These Photos capured the theme of Friendship. In my humble estimation.




New friend!
