365 Days of Photos – Day 70

I took my first bike ride of the “Spring” today. It was a 15 mile round trip. My body certainly needs to reacquaint itself with the bike 🙂

I rode out to this wonderful little waterfall that me and one of my walking/biking buddies found last year. It is such a peaceful and beautiful place. This visit was especially nice because we’ve had so much rain lately there was actually water falling over the rocks!

5 Day Black & White Challenge – Day 3

Day 3 of the 5 Day Black & White challenge. The rules of this challenge are simple. I will post 5 photos in 5 days and I will invite a different person to join the challenge each day.

I am excited to invite fellow Texas blogger Amy, from The World is a Book, to participate in this challenge. She is a gifted photographer. I am frequently surprised by photos shared by Amy of places I have also photographed….yet her photos are of images I never noticed or imagined! Go check out her blog…you won’t be disappointed.

This is the “under-side” of the Main Street bridge in Fort Worth Texas.

365 Days of Photos – Day 14

I wonder how many of you see something out of the corner of your eye as you are driving down the street and immediately circle back so you can take a picture?

I do it all the time! Fortunately my job requires me to drive all over our county to visit clients. Thanks to this job requirement I spend a lot of time in the car. I am constantly watching for unique objects or beautiful scenery or even interesting shapes. I also try to notice the things I think many people drive by everyday and never see.

The picture I chose to post tonight I think is an extremely unique bench. It actually sits in the corner of someone’s yard on a very busy street. Surprisingly it was found only 5 or 6 blocks from my office….yet I’ve never noticed it (my excuse…I rarely drive this direction!)

Today, as I caught sight of this unique bench, I ditched the busy street and went around the block so I could take pictures of it! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

Circles and Curves

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge this week is to find Circles and Curves.

As I looked around Fort Worth Texas, I realized there were many items that matched the challenge description and explained why this city is still (proudly) called Cowtown.

A Little Research….

On Monday I posted a picture of bicycles hanging in a tree for Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge Week 12. A comment from Janet at This, That and the Other Thing, sent me to Google to find out what I could about the tree and the person that decided bikes look good in trees.  So, if any of you are interested in the man that decorates trees with bikes, here is a link for you to follow! The article I’ve linked was written in 2012 and George Hilton was 94 years old at that time. I took the picture this past Friday (05/16/14) so I can only assume Mr. Hilton continues to dabble in yard art!
