WP Photo Challenge: Off-Season (2)

Spotted these flip-flops back in March at one of the rest stops on the AC Expressway.  I could not believe that some person/company actually made them and someone actually bought paid $22.00 for them.

Whats your opinion?  Would you wear them?

These are, in my opinion, always off-season.

Could you?

Could you?

WP Photo Challenge: Broken

That Little Red Truck 2

This past January I took some pictures of this Little Red Truck that sits on the side of the road.  I believe it is a good example of “Broken” for this weeks challenge.

Make sure you check out the Little Red Truck from January!

BIG & Point of View

Photo 101 Assignment 7: BIG & Point of View

Here are just a few of the reptiles that we saw at WOW (World of Wings) last Saturday.  This is a GREAT place to take children of all ages.  It was not too big but definitely big enough to have an enjoyable time.

As aways comments are welcome.

Thanks for visiting my little piece of the world!

W.O.W Butterflies (2)

I forgot to add these pictures to the previous W.O.W Butterflies post.

This is what greeted us as we arrived at WOW (World of Wings).

I have already planned to go back so that I can see this art piece with some nice green grass reflecting on the wings.

I was not able to get a straight picture of the art piece due to the glare from the sun.

Is it mutual?

Are animals as fascinated with seeing humans as humans are at seeing them?

WordPress Photo Challenge: Reward

A Day on the frozen Delaware River

Rewards.  There are so many types of rewards that one can receive but the one that I most treasure is the reward of a new day and especially a new day to explore.

My cousin Michael and I went to RiverWinds which is located in Deptford NJ.  Neither of us have ever been here before.  It was really nice looking at the frozen river.

After Michael and I finished with our picture taking we rewarded the kids by allowing them to throw sticks into the river.

WP Photo Challenge: Rule of Thirds (2)

Dreams

For my second entry into this weeks WP Photo Challenge: Rule of Thirds I am entering this lone Seagull that I have entitled “Dreams”.

When looking for a poem to go with my image, the very first poem that came up in my Google search was Dreams by Langston Hughes.  This is a coincidence as I named my image before I knew the poem.  So it was meant to be.

Hold Fast to dreams

For if dreams die

Life is a broken-winged bird.

Hold fast to dreams

For when dreams go

Life is a barren field

Frozen with snow.

A Snowy Day

Down here in the southern NJ area we received another bit of snow, about 3-4 inches.  In my part of southern NJ I believe we have received around 12 inches this season.  Much less then last years total snow fall of just under 50 inches.

It is nothing like the snow that the New England area has received.  So far this year they have received over 75 inches of snow and the season is not even over yet.  Check out NewEnglandGardenAndThread to see all the pictures of the snow fall(s) they have received.

Back down here in NJ I took some pictures of a few items that stood out to me on this snowy day.

Where do the birds go?

The snow was powdery so it did not last on most of the trees for too long.

Have you ever wondered where the birds go after the babies leave the nest?  Where do they sleep in the winter?  Just a thought.

This snow-covered stream by my job looks like a peaceful path to take and explore the woods.  However don’t be fooled there is water under there.

Usually on my lunch break I sit by the lake/pond that is by my office and just relax.  Even though it is winter I still like to look at the (snow-covered) lake.
