Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Week 30 – After II

I discovered this photo After I had already submitted an entry to the challenge, but it called to me to be entered as well. This is an unedited picture taken in Scotland that shows before and after on one shot. Let me know what you think.

Look just to the right of the centered rose and see the what is in store for it After just a few short days.

Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Week 29 – Open

I have three photos for this challenge relating to open. The first is a picture of my wife at the rooftop restaurant Rocks on the Roof at the Bohemian Hotel on the riverfront in Savannah, Georgia. This is true open air dining with a tapas menu and many specialty drinks. :

I ordered and loved the Aviation Cocktail.

Now here is another interpretation of open. These are my twin granddaughters sitting on a storage chest on our back deck. Guess what is open about these two pixies?

Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Week 26 – ‘Distance’

Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Week 26 – Distance

This photograph was taken from the observation platform of the Sky Tower in Auckland, New Zealand. The pink road you see trailing off into the distance is an old motorway that has been resurfaced and re-purposed as a bike path/walkway in and out of the center of the city. The pink color was used to highlight in pictures to other cities around the world that you can safely allow bicycle traffic into and out of a major city.

The outskirts of Auckland extend for quite a distance. Imagine the decrease in auto traffic in the city for those willing to commute on their bikes.
