Week 36 – #24. I Found This

I was full of excitement today when “I found this” female honey bee buzzing from flower to flower gathering pollen.  You may ask why I would get excited and want to photograph it instead of running toward my car.  Take a look at her rear leg with her bulging orange pollen basket.   After she visits a flower, she begins grooming herself and brushes pollen gathered on her body down toward her hind legs and packs the pollen into her pollen basket. Female bees feed their offspring with pollen mixed with a little nectar.16X20 Bee _MNM7890

Week 35 – #6. Back Lit

Flower photography is not what I know best but give me a pat on the back for being brave enough to post this photo alongside many of you who excel in photographing flowers.  This flower caught my eye this morning because it was so  beautifully “back lit.”

Week 4 – #32. Panorama

While in Chattanooga a few weeks ago, Mike and I decided to drive up to the Georgia end of Lookout Mountain. The weather was beautiful and had a hint of Fall in the air with very little humidity. The view gave me an opportunity to take four photos and stitch them together to make a “panorama” photo.

Week 3 – #5. An Action Shot

Lucky for me, I had my camera set for just the right shutter speed and pointed in the right direction to catch “an action shot” of these two girls at second base during one of the ASA Championship games.

Week 2 – #45. The Ballpark

While in Chattanooga recently, I sat behind home base in “the ballpark” where I played softball regularly as a young girl. Oh, what memories flooded my mind! Of great interest to me was to see girls’ softball teams from all over the United States participating in the annual ASA National Championship.

Week 1 – #23. If Flowers Could Talk

Welcome to another year of blogging! I hope you enjoy my photos as much as I enjoy photographing items which I think represent each of the 2017 – 2018 themes.  During Week 1 on August 1st, I am in Tennessee and as I walked the road where I live, I saw a planter with beautiful pink flowers and I asked myself, “If flowers could talk,” what would these say?  I stood there for several minutes admiring the flowers and started thinking about my buddies who I hold dear, who I enjoy spending time with, and who I can share good times and bad times with.  Then it became obvious to me that these beautiful flowers were a lot like me and would say, “I enjoy hanging out with my buds.”

Week 51 – #23. Orton Effect

The interior of the Sarasota Opera House is a beautiful building of great interest and history.  If you have never attended an opera or ballet there, I would encourage you to do so but beforehand read about its history and renovations here.   It’s a place where dreams are fulfilled and because of that, I have processed it with the dreamy “Orton Effect.”
