"FINISHED"

The theme this week by Kathy  is "Finished". Mac, Kathy, Craver, Lew, Christine and I have a little contest to show a new theme header each week. We now post anytime before 4 PM EDT on Wednesdays and voting begins after that.

Here is something I wished was FINISHED. This project was supposed to be done before September 1st and Kent State University was back in class. The traffic picks up greatly when school starts. This photo was taken today. Maybe this will  finish by October.
 As you can see the construction is far from finished.
Here they are in construction.
They still have a long way to go. Check out this lack of roadway.
The bridge spans the tracks and the trains can pass.
You can see the original wall under this part of the span.
There was a discussion about this fence that delayed construction some. It is over the tracks to protect the trains. Of course, I was easily able to get the above photos which is above the track.

SHADOWS

The theme this week by Lew  is "Shadows". Mac, Kathy, Craver, Lew, Christine and I have a little contest to show a new theme header each week. We now post anytime before 4 PM EDT on Wednesdays and voting begins after that.

I thought I would use natural light to show the shadow. This wooden fish actually produced two shadows from the two windows in my man cave, Can you see the dark and light shadow?
  This is the double shadow from the father and son fishing trip.
This is a mounted Red Ear Sunfish that I caught. It gave a strong shadow.
Mr. Pelican shadow was pretty neat.

E Pluribus Unum, or "Out of many, one"

The theme this week by Christine  is "E Plribus Unum". Mac, Kathy, Craver, Lew, Christine and I have a little contest to show a new theme header each week. We now post anytime before 4 PM EDT on Wednesdays and voting begins after that.

I thought about how to share this theme. It is a patriotic theme and what better to use then our national bird. The American Eagle gave me a fun pose.  It was one of many in the enclosure.
There were more in the enclosure along with the American flag.
Here are three in the show.
I had considered a Pink Flamingo which was one of many.
There were a many birds in this pond.
I think they are a showy bird,

Portray a Movie

The theme this week by Mac  is "Portray a Movie". Mac, Kathy, Craver, Lew, Christine and I have a little contest to show a new theme header each week. We now post anytime before 4 PM EDT on Wednesdays and voting begins after that.

The movie I chose was "Black Night" 2006. I thought I would use a Black Night Heron I saw in Florida last week. I was gone last week for the bird challenge so I still get to use this one. We were at Homosassa  Springs. This Black Night Heron decided to visit us. I love the long white feather on their head.
It was a beautiful bird.
I enjoyed the visit.
It posed for quite a while.
I got pretty close.
It kept posing.
There was a pair of them in the aviary so I got them together..

"B&W verses Color"

The theme this week by me  is "B&W verses Color". Mac, Kathy, Craver, Lew, Christine and I have a little contest to show a new theme header each week. We now post anytime before 4 PM EDT on Wednesdays and voting begins after that.

I thought this would be a neat subject to see if I like B&W or color. I chose the color but it was close. This is a muskrat swimming on the lake
It was pretty cool in B&W.
I looked at this monolith in Mexico.
I would have chosen the B&W here.
The color on this doe in my yard was spectacular.
It was not as cool in B&W.

The Other Side

The theme this week by Kathy  is "The Other Side". Mac, Kathy, Craver, Lew, Christine and I have a little contest to show a new theme header each week. We now post anytime before 4 PM EDT on Wednesdays and voting begins after that.

So what does Kathy mean by this theme?  Why it could be the Great Blue Heron fishing the shore of the lake. It often turn around and goes back and forth along the shore looking for a bite to eat.
They are a beautiful bird.
I often show the animals by my shed.
So if you turn around you see what the animals see, a deck on the back of the house.
I also show the front of the house.
If you turn around you see the cul-de-sac across the street.
