35. Theme 226 ~Portrait~

Is it just me or does it look like this guy is smirking?  I took this as soon as I got up after falling, yes falling, out of the car.  I over-reached when trying to close the door and sort of just fell out.  lol  It was even funny when it happened….hurt my thumb of all things!  Anyway, I think he may have been laughing at me!

3. Theme 206 ~One~

Chapter 1 from “Our Own Birds – A Familiar Natural History of the Birds of the United States” by William L. Baily.  No, I didn’t read it! : )   I think I prefer the color version.   It really should be enlarged to appreciate the full effect.

1. Theme 124 ~Games~

So here’s my first post of 2011.  Love the pieces in a chess set…so classic and tactile.  It took a few shots to finally find one I liked though, and I do prefer it in black & white.  What’s your opinion?

Benvenuti!

Welcome…..it’s time for another International Photo Challenge!  2009’s project was SHADOWS & LIGHT and 2010’s was WALK WITH ME, both of which can be accessed by clicking on their names.  This year it’s IMMAGINI ANCORA (Italian for ‘Images Again’) and we’re going back to the 365 theme specific format. That doesn’t necessarily mean a photo a day, but hopefully 365 by the end of 2011.  We’ll see!!! I’m also planning to post some photos in monochrome in addition to color, although that isn’t part of the project.  You can check the archives for a list of all posts.  Enjoy your visit and please feel free to leave comments or critiques.
