Becky’s Bright Squares in April

Double rainbows are the theme for today’s Bright Squares challenge hosted by Becky B of Becky of Winchester. I took this photo with an old Canon Powershot in the early 2000’s. The view is Hollywood, California. The windows of my apartment faced east, so I often was greeted with beautiful sunrises and the occasional rainbow. This is the only double rainbow I remember ever seeing.

Jez’s WWE Challenge #74 & Reflections #1

Weems Creek at sunset, 19 April 2021

This is just one of a whole series of photographs that I took yesterday at one of my favorite haunts, Weems Creek. I didn’t even know about the new challenge, Reflections, or that it was incorporated into the Water Water Everywhere Challenge, both hosted by Jez Braithwaite who is a great photographer.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #139 – Special Moments

I took this photograph on June 20, 2002 in Maui. I was driving the Road to Hana and pulled over. Walking into the forest I came across this waterfall where people were jumping into the reservoir below. Luckily I had a waterproof disposable camera, so I was able to join in the fun. The very next day, I turned 40 years of age. A special moment indeed.

I took this photo on September 16 of last year. I was having a difficult time making any sort of a decent capture with my camera. The strap got a bit tangled around my wrist, and while trying to untangle it, I inadvertently snapped this shot. Another special moment.

Baltimore is one of those cities with a lot of one way thoroughfares. If you make a wrong turn, unless you’re very familiar with the city, you will get lost in a heartbeat. That’s what happened to me. The day was winding down and I was beginning to panic because rush hour was on the verge of beginning. I saw this view in my rearview mirror and decided to take advantage. I stopped my car, hopped out and took this shot. The people behind me in traffic were less than pleased, but I saw many cars taking my same route.

Pull Up a Seat Challenge #13

I don’t know if this is the most recent Pull Up a Seat Challenge by Xingfu Mama, but I saw this spot and immediately thought of this particular challenge. I envy the folks who get to sit here whenever they fancy. It had to be shared with the rest of the world. This spot looks over Weems Creek which is one of the tinier creeks in and around Annapolis.

PAS 1 b cropThis is another favorite spot. It’s in my own backyard.  I never sit in this chair but it is a lovely prop for the squirrels. They love it. They use it as a staging ground between the trees, the clothes line and the ground below. I took these pictures with my iPhone 11. Edited in Photoshop.PAS 1
