Pink Saturday

Happy Halloween! Oh my goodness, it looks like someone dressed like "Miss Piggy" is coming to our house to trick or treat. Let's see. I have dark chocolate kisses and Reese's Peanut Butter cups. Wonder which one she'll pick. Look how her eyes are all bright and shiny just thinking about crunching those teeth against that chocolate.

Thematic Photographic #71 - Open

My grandson was playing at a park. Impulsively he stuck his hand through the holes of the play equipment. I couldn't resist taking this snapshot. Children have such imaginations, they seek adventures and have plenty of time to learn and play. The whole world is open to them.

If you would like to participate and post a photograph with the theme of Open on blogspot click here: http://writteninc.blogspot.com/2009/10/thematic-photographic-71-open.html. Thank you Carmi and Mojo for being the hosts.

10/14/2009 Outdoor Wednesday #40


I decided to post some bizarre photos in honor of Halloween.


Photo #One
Notice all the eyes, faces and unusual shapes on this wooden sign. This image was taken at Hayward, Wisconsin public beach.

Photo #Two
Brick pathway. I found these circles and different textures of pebbles and brick interesting.


Photo #Three
Take a look at this window frame with peeling paint and broken glass. Looks kind of spooky to me.

10/7/09 Outdoor Wednesday #39

Ok Ladies and Gentlemen. Be prepared for the unusual. These contemporary shots were taken at a car wash. Money was paid. A special number was keyed into the machine. And then the fun began.

This is liquid soap running down a dirty automobile windshield.


And this image is of a clean windshield. The droplets of water look like eyeballs don't they? My husband drove slowly though the car wash while I took these shots. What a guy? Thank you John!
