Thank you Susan for being the hostes.







John, my husband, and I were investigating the roads less traveled.  Along the way we noticed this road leading into an area where trees were being logged.  Above one can see a close-up of how the road is made up of logs.




Here is another shot of the road made up of logs from the rural road.




Heavy equipment has used this road.


Here is a picture of a mail box with a tooth ache!

Monday, August 14, 2017 - Thinking Outside the Box - Scoop and Brew - Quote - Samuel Johnson - Objections






This is a photograph of crowds leaving an area where 4th of July fireworks were being displayed.  I put this image in Picasa and worked on it a bit to include this eerie look.  It isn't my BEST work but it is a FIRST at trying something new.  Flesh in the dark showed up.  The policeman with a flashlight showed up. Car lights leaving the area showed up. Crowds walking toward their cars or homes showed up.  Where my husband and I were at the time showed up. I attempted this image knowing that I would receive objections and posted it anyways.


Photo taken near Scoop and Brew, Shell Lake, Wisconsin on 4th of July.

Thank you Susan for being the hostess.




I arrived for my appointment with a massage therapist early so decided not to waste the time.   I got out my cell phone and took pictures of flowers growing in the area.  See 3 planters below:










This is ground cover growing in our yard.




This piece of wood landed right by a tree growing in our yard.   Doesn't it look like a bird?   Do you see the beak and the eye?  Unusual find so it is part of our forest now.

August 1, 2017 - Thinking Outside the Box - Absence - Quote - Georgia O'keeffe - Unknown



Absence-042017


Among the photographs that I took on 4th of July, low and behold, here was this image.  I kept the trees as silhouettes, the moon is just a bright spot in the sky and should of been photographed better; but instead I concentrated on layers of blue that was happening in the shot.  I noticed the absence of stars.  So, that is why this image is called Absence.  This image touches my soul.  It speaks of silence.  Loneliness.  Unknown. Layers of mind and spirit.  And now, I ask, how does this photograph speak to you?  I'd like to hear your comments.
