Theme ~ Games

Chosen by Christine.  (That's me.)


I laughed when I looked at the theme for the week--who chose this theme, anyway?  It was me.  And I have no pictures to show for it.  Well, except for this game called baseball.  Friends invited us to see a Chicago White Sox game with them last month--what a blast!

Here's the photo I used for my header:

Sox win!  Sox win!

Here are the highlights from the evening.  Enjoy!



Fireworks show after the game!





One photo after the game, looking from the ramps at the stadium out toward the city.


It was a great game and a great day with friends!

Theme ~ Water

Chosen by Mac.


I took all of these photos in the last few months.  Here's the one I chose to use for my header.

Water droplets on sage leaves.

Here are the rest of my water photos...

I threw this one in for fun--because there's no more water in our pool--and no more pool.




At a stoplight on the way home from work--torrential downpours!

I hope to be more timely in the future; it's hard to post when I'm away from my computer for the bulk of the week.  Thanks for visiting!

Theme ~ Going Strong

Chosen by All of Us.


For this week's theme, I chose my family, since we're all going strong.  And my guys are strong.  'Nuff said.  Here's the image I used for my header.  At a wedding, I took the camera that doesn't work with my remote shutter release (of course), so I adjusted all the settings, propped it on a bench and used the 10-second timer.  Danny pressed the shutter than ran into the frame because I wasn't about to press it and run and jump into my guys' arms!


Here are some other things are are going strong.

My dad at age 84!

Danny, who graduated from college and just landed a job.

These flowers were growing strong, in profusion.

These two old vehicles, at 500,000+ and almost 100,000+ miles, are both still going strong!

The White Sox were going strong by winning their game.

My garden is going strong.

Alpine strawberries, going strong.

Finally--fireworks from a few days ago were definitely going strong!

Theme ~ Where Am I?

Chosen by Tom.


This week's theme will yield a pretty easy answer, so I'll just let my photos do the talking.  Here's the image I used for my header.  I shot it with my macro lens looking through the "forest" at ground level.


Take a tour of where I am...












You (hopefully) obviously guessed that I'm in my garden.  Here's an overhead view from the deck of our pool, which I've used for years to take overview photos of my garden.  This photo, though, is the last of its kind--our pool is finally in the process of being taken down (a couple of brutal winters + no money to repair the damage = no more pool), and the deck is coming down today.

 
Hope you enjoyed the tour!

Theme ~ Signs

Here's the image I used for my header.  It's a sign at the Louvre.  I love the English translation!


More fun signs.

At the Eiffel Tower.

Funny road signs...




And a misspelled sign (two m's in accommodation), at our local community college, no less...


Thanks for visiting today!

Theme ~ Curves

Chosen by Lew.


I have time for a quick post for this week's Header Challenge...

To show off the most curves, here's the (slightly weird and unusual) image I chose for my header:

Making enchiladas in bulk.

Here are more curves, hopefully all easily spotted in each image.  :)








That's all I have time for this week.  The hearts of my fellow Headbangers and me go out to our dear Kathy this week, and we pray she feels our hugs and comfort from across the sea to across the country.
