Tuesday Photo Challenge – Broken

I dug into my archives for this photo from Yellowstone National Park. The theme this week is ‘Broken’. Take a look at all of the broken tree trunks scattered over this hill overlooking the river. They look like scattered pickup sticks.

Tuesdays of Texture | Week 7 of 2017

We had an 80 degree day on February 12th in our area of North Carolina so we decided to go to the North Carolina Zoo:

It is the larges zoo in the USA when measured by acreage and has two sections: North America; and Africa. It being the middle of winter, we decided that most of the African exhibits would be closed, so we visited the North America section this time.

Here are just a couple of my photos with some great texture.

Thursday Doors – February 9, 2017

Today is the third and final post of the doors of Key West, Florida. The two prior posts can be found at Thursday Doors – January 19th, 2017 and Thursday Doors – January 12, 2017.

My ‘Doors to Nowhere’ shot was meant to catch your eye. There was obviously some kind of second story walkway with railing on this building in the past. If you stepped out of these doors today, you would find yourself in or through the awning below.

From here, let’s go to St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, which has some beautiful red doors:

Tuesdays of Texture | Badlands South Dakota

I promised several of my followers a post from our trip to Badlands National Park in South Dakota. Well, Tuesdays of Texture seems to be an appropriate venue for this post. I have 20 pictures from the 50+ shots I took that I would like to share. My featured image is the last of these 20 photos chronologically but it has overwhelming texture.

Feel free to skim through the photos and let me know what you think and which is your favorite.

As always, many thanks to Narami at De Monte Y Mar for sponsoring this weekly challenge. Why not hop over to her blog and join in on the fun.
