Cee’s B & W Photo Challenge: Glass

This week Cee has challenged us to share black and white photos of glass. I had to look back a bit…but I was able to find two photos I would like to share.

If you enjoy black and white photography or photo challenges…I encourage you to visit Cee’s page.

Thursday Doors – 8/10/17

I’m really not sure why I didn’t post this photo six months ago. I took the picture with Thursday Doors in mind. I was vacationing in Chelem Yucatan, Mexico last December.

This is the front door to my friend’s house. Steve and Su had the door custom made out of “cedro” (cedar) by a local carpenter.

The gate was also custom made by a local welder.

Against the Odds…

The Daily Post, weekly photo challenge, is to share the unexpected.

The most recent unexpected event I could think of was our visit to Celestun, Yucatan to see real live flamingos. Not flamingos that stand around in a pond at the zoo…but real live flamingos, in the wild, in their own habitat, with their families and their friends…NOT surrounded by screaming children with nowhere to go and nowhere to fly. img_5757

Fortunately, for the flamingos, the boat we hired  was only allowed to get within a certain distance. Unfortunately for my photography we couldn’t get closer. img_5635

I could have watched these pink creatures all day. Tina and I both have a long standing love for these unique creatures. So having the opportunity to see hundreds of them at one time was a dream come true. img_5530

Cee’s Which Way Photo Challenge

Roads, trails, walkways, bridges and any other “way” that allows us to move from one place to another…these are the photos Cee is looking for in this challenge.

This week I chose to share photos of the streets of Merida, Yucatandsc_0986

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge…

Cee has opted for an open topic this week…so we get to post the photos of our choice!

I’ve chosen to post a few photos I took while in Mexico earlier this month.

We visited a local cemetery. This cross with the hat and cane really touched me. I imagine this gentleman must have been someone’s grandfather. And for some reason I think he must have been quite a character…
