Scalzi's Monday Photo Shoot

John Scalzi's Your Monday Photo Shoot:  It's Night! Take a picture. Naturally, taking a picture inside at night (i.e., where it's well lit and indistinguishable from day) won't do; take a picture that captures some of the quality of the night time. Also: No sunset photos. We'll save them up to do another time.
taken this past summer in destin, fl...relaxing outside our motel,
as night started moving in, and the lights came on, this scene
caught my eye.
i have always loved night lights....i thought this destin plaza was
particularly pretty all lit up.
hubby and i celebrated our 2nd annniversary this past summer in san diego with a
dinner cruise.
business meeting in costa mesa, ca....friends and i had walked to the mall for dinner one
night, and i had to snap a few shots on the walk back of the beautiful christmas lights
and decorations.

Photo Scavenger Hunt #105

Photo Scavenger Hunt #105 .......Our subject this week will be:  BLUE

                 i love blues...and the first blue i think of is our beautiful sky.


shown here as a backdrop for the first signs of spring as the trees begin flowering....


                      and here reflected in a creek.....


         and then i think of the natural blues in nature we are so blessed with....


          he is still beautiful, though his wings are battered and worn


                    rich blues are even found in the depths.....




            and blue has often been significant in religious beliefs...
