Tuesday Photo Challenge – History

This featured image represents one of the most historical trips my wife and I have experienced. We were on a Mediterranean cruise in May of 2001, and every stop was steeped in history. Our stop in Ephesus, Turkey was one of the highlights of the cruise. At that time, about one square mile of the city had been excavated, and everywhere we looked was wondrous. This particular picture is of the library in Ephesus.

However, this being the 4th of July, I thought I should include some American history. This next picture is from the siege at Vicksburg, Mississippi during the American Civil War.

Tuesday Photo Challenge – Unusual

Imagine something ‘Unusual’ with a name like ‘Old Faithful’. How unusual is it to have a natural geyser that blows at such a regular interval.

In this picture, it almost appears that Old Faithful is creating the beautiful clouds in the background sky.

Here is another example of the geyser at its peak:

Tuesdays of Texture | Week 24 of 2017

Do you sometimes take a picture and not get the result you expect? Here is one of those cases. My camera’s auto-focus chose the background pine straw instead of the small blue spruce tree. I think that the result makes a perfect Tuesdays of Texture example.

Tuesday Photo Challenge – Healthy

With the new spring growth, this small but thriving pine tree is really very healthy. Just look at the vibrancy of the green against the pine straw background. Also, it doesn’t hurt to have the morning sun peeking through the trees to light up the young branches.

Tuesday Photo Challenge – RGB

Today’s Tuesday Photo Challenge is to find a picture with the colors Red, Green, and Blue. I went back to our trip to Copenhagen and the Queens favorite Summer Residence – Fredensborg in Northern Zealand.

This first photo is on the street/plaza walking up to the residence:

The second photo is of one of the palace guards. The guard house behind the soldier is a dark red (currently in shadow). You can also see the scarlet piping in the uniform.
