On the Shelf–Of Maria Antonia, Photo Challenge 2018

I enjoy this challenge because Maria Antonia allows us to pick from her list of items and post whichever one pleases us. I better start working on some of the more difficult items but for today, it is “On the Shelf.”

The Letter V–Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge

This week’s Fun Foto Challenge, offered by Cee, needs to start with the letter V and have at least 6 letters. Pitiful, I know, but it’s the only “thing” I can think of.

Architecture–Of Maria Antonia’s Weekly Prompt

It’s not Saturday and it’s already Week 2, so I’m late in every aspect of this prompt–but I want to get on board, so here’s my first entry for Maria Antonia’s 2018 Photo Challenge where you may pick any of the 52 prompts she offers, until you get through all of them. This is the chapel of the United States Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs. The theme is Architecture.

Corners: Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge

Joining Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge for the first time with the prompt of CORNERS. I was on my back in our living room, stretching, when I noticed all the angles and that turned out to be perfect for this prompt. I need to work on contrast.

Alphabet Challenge–Photos

Cee Neuner is offering a new alphabet challenge, a bit more specific than most. This week’s calls for photos that start with the letters AP. Not happy with the photos (taken with my android).

Hummingbird–Jennifer Nichole Wells’ OWPC

Jennifer Nichole Wells has challenged us to post a hummingbird photo this week. I have literally hundreds of them but I could not resist posting this little fellow who stopped by our feeder in Palm Desert a few years ago on Easter and stayed with us for the rest of the season. He’s been on this blog before but these are two different photos. David is the bird photographer. He has endless patience.

This is a Leucistic Hummingbird. It is easy to think he is albino, but note his eyes are not pink.

Flower of the Day–Godetia

These delicate little flowers bloom abundantly and reseed themselves after you think they are dead. I just dead-headed them and supposedly they will re-bloom. Linked to Cee’s Flower of the Day.
