This week, Cee is looking for roofs. I have to admit that I didn’t think I had any until I started searching and was surprised to find a few. You can join the fun here https://ceenphotography.com/2020/02/25/cees-fun-foto-challenge-roofs-of-any-kind/
Tina has sent us on a treasure hunt this week for photos – https://travelsandtrifles.wordpress.com/2020/02/22/lens-artists-challenge-85-treasure-hunt/.
I had fun digging through older and current photos to hit all of the items we were challenged to find. So here goes:
Sunset, boat, seascape, bird, bike, rainbow ( I used a fogbow photo) and dog – these were all taken at or near the beach
The other items are something hot or cold, a funny sign, church, musical instrument, plane and waterfall
Thanks Tina for the trip down memory lane!!
My entry for this week is a Kingfisher bird. These guys move as fast as electrons – I felt lucky to get this photo of one holding still. If you want to join in on the challenge – you can find it here – https://ceenphotography.com/2020/02/18/cffc-needs-to-have-the-letter-k-anywhere-in-the-word/
This week we are invited to provide interpretations of narrow. In this first photo – there are 3 surfers (one a wipeout) on this wave and all narrowly escaped getting hurt by the riderless board
If you are ever in the Outer Banks and have a chance to climb one of the lighthouses, it’s a great experience but the stairway is extremely narrow. We’ve climbed this one a few times – Cape Hatteras Lighthouse
We can also look to nature for some examples – herons are such elegant birds but those stilt like legs can take on a comical look at times
Damselflies are beautiful and have an extremely narrow body which makes focusing on them difficult

I participate in a Macro Monday Flickr group and this week’s theme is vegetables – so I thought I would share my macro cucumber photo with all of you. It’s amazing what you see when you get close!
Here are my picks for this week – all were taken last year
This first one is a photo of the intercoastal waterway a couple of miles from us
I need lots of practice between lessons
The beach on a foggy day. Do you see the small American flag in the fence?

Each fall we head up to Skyline Drive which is only about 3 1/2 hours away. Here are a few photos from last fall’s trip

This week we are asked to provide photos that represent a capital. I’m going to start with the capital of the United States during colonial times which is Williamsburg, Virginia. This town is rich in the history of our country and has beautiful old buildings that have been restored.
We also had the opportunity a few years ago for a quick stop in San Juan and saw both old and less old structures
Lastly, my daughter, granddaughter and I spent a few days in Nashville, Tennessee which is not only the capital of the state but also considered the music capital of the world. Where else could I hang out with a wax figure of Kid Rock?

This week we are asked to “Sit in the Sun”. I looked through my photos and here are a few of my favorites
