Skywatch Friday Pics from the Park today

visit Skywatch
Thanks so much David for the shout out on Post of the day
1. I keep thinking of the old movie Short Circuit:)

2.This tree looks great in Spring green

and in Black and white

3.I got a vintage vibe here(can you say vintage and vibe in the same sentence)

4.I think these are color optional

.
5. I so love sunlight on rippling water

6.Take away the color -- and not only is it timeless but the ripples disappeared

7.Must be spring if you see Spiderman flying over the park w/ a giant butterfly

8.The sky really loses something w/o the color


9.I just love knotty growths


10. Put the camera on the ground for these I like them both





11.The proverbial top sign

12. I pass this daily on a fence around the corner from my house and I just love it

13. The lights of the night

I can pronounce "Vibration Vibe, vibration vibe....." quickly even with French accent, Marcia.
The knotty growths is an excellent picture with texture. I like it.
So does the tree seen from the ground. I often forget not to take pictures systematically at the level of my eyes.
The sTOP sign is very creative. It could have been a good Ruby Tuesday entry.
It's a pleasure to watch all these pictures, because each of us have a different way to watch things around us. We learn to change and to open ourselves to a new vision seing the work of others.
Thank you Marcia, for your kind friendship, it's just that "things" are not so bright with Spring and I must find a way to deal with that, or changing my dark thoughts. It happens to everyone, sometimes. Blogging is a good medecine : )

I can say "vintage vibe" in a sentence, but cannot say it 5 times without my tongue going all goofy.

Yes, I did just try it.

Great pics. ;)

A good series of photos fro sky watch, I like black and white but I love color when it comes to spring.

Janie said...

You have some great angles, and it's fun to see the pics in color and b&w to compare the effects. I haven't seen spring green here yet. I'm eager for it to arrive.

What a whole lot of wonderful photos. But my favorites have to be the trees, from the ground, in color. They are warm and happy!

I love the way you look at things. It's so creative and interesting. I really love the white rose or is it primrose on the top. It is beautiful. You are a great photographer.
