A couple of old ones for the theme and a note on hummers
Quick note on hummingbirds. If you are interested in them and learning how they are moving into different areas of the country for wintering, pick up the Dec/Jan edition of National Wildlife. There is a good story on them. It is also their "Best Photographs of 2006" issue. Take a look and see if you have what it takes.
Have a good weekend. I'm off to Newport for the day Saturday. The commercial crab boats are in with all of their gear on deck waiting to rock and roll for the start of the season. There are very few days in the year you catch them with all the gear stacked on deck and on top of that they are calling for 60 and sunny on the beach. I WILL be there.
Love the new camera
sunset and sunrises
And I love the sunrisemyrtle beach sunrise
I want them to be better and more clear. I do know I need a better camera but I love trying. You guys are inspiring and the more i come here, the more I learn.
The sunrise pic clouds of glory is of great motivation. I was walking along the beach and found heavy self sinking in the sand and the seagulls helped me walk 40 paces at a time until i reached the pier. I tend to panic when I don't know what to do. Anyway thanks for looking. Any comment is welcome.
Playground in Black and White
I can't show you the faces of the kids but sure wish you could have seen them, it was really exciting this year--the kids were all 4/5/6 year old and they were so excited. This past Tuesday there were eighty coats received and next week there will be a hundred more coats given to kids.(that is it for this year)
It was a joy to watch the kids, we had a little something for them to eat before handing out the coats and you should have seen the kids looking at the coats and wondering 'which one is mine'. There was this one little girl who kept looking at a pink coat and I could hear her say, "Oh, I hope I get that pink coat', and you could hear them say, "wow, look at those coats".
When we did begin to hand out the coats and as each child's name was called you should have seen their face, and the little girl who wanted to get the pink coat--wouldn't you know, her name was called out for that one--her face just lit up.
Coats sorry, on Coats you will need to use Ctrl N, did not realise it would be so big.
Have a good day!!
The Quality of Light
The thumbnail is a picture I took last summer, when photography was just grabbing hold of me.The sun was shining directly through the window into this iris. Though this is an old shot I wanted to share it for this challenge.
Thanks for looking!
