I am looking forward to your responses to my challenge of “On the water” this week. Your interpretation could be high-speed photography of water droplets or scenic views of oceans and rivers. Whatever your take on the water, be sure to link to my original post and use the Lens-Artists tag so that everyone can find your post in the WP Reader.
Monsoon Season Starts in PrescottJohn Steiner
John challenges us to post our water photos. Here in the high desert it’s not always as dry as you might expect. July is monsoon season, which means lots of water in a very short time. On Friday I headed to the garage, and a few big raindrops hit me. By the time I had walked the 300 steps to get there, the monsoon started.
Hail, along with the river, welled up in the parking lot within seconds. My phone hanging on my ear talking to my sister-in-law, all I could do for about five or ten minutes was watch the hail beat the pavement from my garage. No photos. I’m kicking myself!
These first two pictures are taken with my new Sony camera. The rest are all cell phone pictures so I’m submitting them also for John’s Cellpic Sunday Photo Challenge.
Washington D. C. Trip
San Antonio Field Trip
When I worked as a history consultant for Tulare County Office of Education, the non-profit organization, Center for Civic Education, would take Project Citizen Trainers to different locations around the country for professional development. We saw the Alamo and walked the San Antonio River Walk after training hours.
Morro Bay on the Central Oregon Coast
Puppy Girl, Vince and I all loved to drive three hours to the coast on a hot day in the South San Joaquin Valley.
Heading for Hawaii
My favorite place to be on the water is probably Maui, Hawaii. You had your choice of pool or ocean. I usually chose the ocean.
July 3rd Blast in Woodlake
Before the fireworks, kids come to enjoy a respite from the 104 degree temperature in the water slides.
