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.
