"Official"

The theme this week by me is "Official".  Mac, Kathy, 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. Mac is travelling to Ireland so will not be posting.

While visiting DC we saw the home of the highest official of the USA. My wife posed in front of the rear entrance to the White House.
There was someone on the roof checking her out.
No one was there when I was with her.
The front of the White house with work being done by crane.
The official home of the congress and the senate is the Capitol Building. It is under reconstruction at this time.
From the Lincoln Memorial across the reflecting pool you can see the Washington Monument (a memorial to our first official) with Capitol Building behind.

ODD SHOTS

The theme this week by Kathy is "Odd Shots. ".  Mac, Kathy, 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. 

We just got back from a week in D.C. and saw some great sights. Here are a couple of Odd Shots I captured. This artists sculpture was surely odd as it showed the continents in an open pattern.
 You know something is odd when the writing on the sidewalk makes sense. This is the only one I saw.
How about an odd vehicle with a satellite disc on top. It certainly takes a full size Hummer to carry it around.

"Revisiting Past Headers"

The theme this week is "Revisiting Past Headers ".  Mac, Kathy, 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 chose to redo the header theme from 4/8/15 "Pictures from the Past". I'm sure everyone will do this theme differently. I enjoy taking bird photos so I will show some of my favorites. I took these photos on a trip to Florida.

Here is a Great Blue Heron with a itch.
 He gave a right turn signal and then didn't move.
Here is a Great White Egret on a perch.
He was a poser.
This is a Black Crowned Night Heron I saw at a dock.
As it flew away I got this artsy capture.
See what the others show and show this theme on my side bar. Christine is out this week,

"Looking Up"

The theme this week is "Looking Up"  by me.  Mac, Kathy, 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 chose Looking Up  but sometimes you can take a Looking Up shot by looking down into a reflection.
You can look up into a colorful sky and see the sun or
the moon,
a helicopter,
a hot air balloon,
a blimp
or the famous Goodyear Blimp in your back yard. So keep looking up to see what is there.
