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 52 – #50. White On White

This is my final post for the 2016 – 2017, 52-Week Challenge and I am pleased that I have been able to post one photo per week for the entire year.  To those of my fellow bloggers who have also successfully completed the challenge this year, I say to you, “Congratulations,” and to those who tried very hard but because of various reasons were not successful, I say to you, “Keep the faith and continue trying this upcoming year.”

As it relates to my last post for the 2016 – 2017 year, I had a difficult time finding a suitable subject so started looking around my house and saw a beautiful white bag with white feathers around the top. Continuing through the house, I saw a bouquet of artificial white geraniums. Hmmm…all I needed was a white piece of foam core so I looked in the closet where I store my photo equipment, and wouldn’t you know I found one.  Problem solved for a photo of “white on white.”  This proves that sometimes we only have to look at our surroundings to find something suitable which will satisfy a theme.

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.”

Week 48. – #10. Cozy/Comfortable

I had the pleasure of going to Lido Beach this week to photograph the nesting Skimmers.  I do not photograph birds on a regular basis, but I must say I tremendously enjoyed the few hours I spent with three other photographers photographing these fascinating birds.  I was told there were over 200 adult Skimmers and over 100 baby chicks.  This particular adult Skimmer provided warmth and protection underneath its wing in a very “cozy/comfortable” way for its baby chick.

Week 47 – #A5. Seasonal

I love “seasonal” flowers and cannot wait until springtime to place a container of tulips in my home once they begin blooming.  I do so hate to say goodbye, however, to those which have greeted me so beautifully every morning as I walked into my kitchen.

Week 46. – #3. Aged To Perfection

The Blackburn Point Bridge is an historic swing bridge located near Osprey, FL and listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places.  It is a one-lane swing bridge located on Blackburn Point Road at the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway. It is the northernmost of the two bridges connecting the barrier island Casey Key to the mainland of Florida. Constructed by the Champion Bridge Co. and opened to traffic in December 1926, it is “aged to perfection” and traffic crosses it daily. Because of its age, I have elected to process my photo with a vintage look.
