Don't Rock the Boat

The theme this week by Mac is "Don't Rock the Boat". Mac, Kathy, Craver, Lew, Christine, Wiggers 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 kayaks are a boat you should not rock. It is a boat that can flip over. Use care, please don't rock these boats. 
 They do look like they are enjoying a row.
Sometimes the boat is a board, don't rock it. 
It does look like a stable platform.
Okay it's Spring, it was 74F on Monday and then we had snow overnight. The temperature dropped to 28F. These flowers are wondering who rocked the boat.
Here is a robin in the Ohio Buckeye Tree wondering why he came North to these conditions. How do you find worms on the ground when it is snow covered?

Let's just take a close-up of the moon.

This is a close-up look at Mars.
Yes it is the red planet.

The theme this week by me is "Smile". Mac, Kathy, Craver, Lew, Christine, Wiggers 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. 

We would like to welcome back Wiggers our old friend Tom Wigley from the UK. Tom was one of the original Headbangers and left for health reasons. It's so great to have a his wonderful photos back with us.

I am featuring photos from my wife's fathers 100th birthday celebration. The Hand of God and Adam from the Sistine Chapel ceiling by Michelangelo has been reproduced in art. This was not planned but My daughter's boyfriend looks like he was being blessed. They had great smiles for the photo.
I guess when you're 100, you can smile as you wish.
Here are my wife and her cousin having a good time.
My two red headed grandsons had a good time.
Here is the youngest grandson with his dad. What a great smile.
My wife with her best smile.
Another daughter with a great smile.

Well, Spring is coming and so are the flowering bushes. This is a azalea that is at my daughters boyfriends house. It was full of blooms.
 Can you believe how many blooms there are.
It is a beautiful Spring flower.
The other flowering bush is a Rhododendron. It is a beauty also.
It is a beautiful sign of Spring.
I went in for a close view of the flower.
Along with Spring comes another birthday for my father-in-law Gene Pisella. He just turned 100 and he lives alone and still drives in the daytime.. My wife enjoyed her time with him.

Almost Perfect

The theme this week by Christine is "Almost Perfect". 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. Christine gave us a challenge to show a photo that was almost perfect except there was a problem with what was shown,

Well the circle of life was shown in this photo. I always thought it would have been perfect if the garter snake hadn't squeezed the guts out of the toad.
This was a cool photo except for the dead flowers.
What is this I'm seeing through the garden  fence. Certainly a fun shot through the fence.
Here it is again through the trees. I wish the face came out better.
Why did the camera focus on the branches. I wanted to focus on the fawn. It was almost perfect.

The Shape of Art

The theme this week by Mac is "The Shape of Art". 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. Whoops, I lost a day. I got up this morning thinking it was Wednesday. Surprise, it's Thursday and I'm late. Sorry my friends.

When I think of art I think of the art in Munich, Germany. Everywhere you look you see art shapes. This statue was interesting with the ruler and the lions. 
The first thing I saw was this arch at the city entrance.
We parked in front of this line of statues.
This was a fish fountain. I had to show this shape.
Here is Mary and baby Jesus atop a church.
This is a famous colorful clock.
The buildings have such great shapes.
