C is For . . .

This the Cadet Chapel at the United States Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs. It's a beautiful building.

A is for

For some time now I've been trying to snap photos of the alphabet found in normal every day scenes - you know where a curving road makes a nice S shape or maybe an X shape found on a fence row?  That project may take forever. I haven't given up on it, but in the mean time I have given myself a new assignment.  It's still Alphabet photography, but this time I'm looking for objects that begin with the letters of the alphabet.  I know "A is for Apple" is rather cliche, but I like this one.

Any suggestions for other "A" photos?

Photo Sunday: Book

I ran across this weekly photo challenge. Love the idea. Click on the icon above for more info.  Check it out and vote for your favorite photos in this week's challenge.

This week's theme is Book.  Well, I work with books so getting a book related photo is no problem. Choosing which one to submit is the hard part.  I decided to pick a couple of my Read photos.

I let the flowers that my sweet husband sent me for Valentine's dry so that I could keep the buds. Once they were dry enough (I thought) I pulled them off the stems and placed them in this beautiful plain vase.  I loved that they still had their pink color.  Well, the pink color didn't last. I realized yesterday morning that they were losing their color. In fact only the flowers on top still had any color. So I whipped out the camera  and took several quick shots so that I would at least have a picture of them before they faded.

Of course I had to play around with the final photo a little.  I rather like this one.

X Marks the Spot

On my to do list is to take photos that contain a letter of the alphabet formed by an object or objects in the picture.  It's not easy and it may take me twenty years to get all 26 letters.  Over the weekend, on my walk back from the library, I spotted a couple of X(s). I've made this walk many times, but had missed them until this last walk.

A Bookish Theme - 1

It's a new month. I've decided to help get my creative juices flowing and to help me be more consistent with this blog, I will assign myself a theme each week. The goal will be to take a photo each day and post it on whatever the theme is for that month.  Being a complete bookworm, I chose books as my theme for this week.
