CARD FULL: Today's Fav 3

Follow up to my previous post re: Planning. CARD FULL obviously means my photo op was done with over 200 photos taken in a two hour period, with 7 different car stops, and one latte. Needless to say, there wasn't an overall theme. Random: "I like this." "WOW - Love this." "Well, this is interesting." and "Sure glad technology has allowed us to move from a limit of 12 to 24 to 36 photos or slides on a role of film."

View from an alley, 2nd floor window - LOVE that there is an easel in this eastern window! I Love thinking of the person (or maybe persons) who paint from this location.

As the Paint Peels. Could one even ask for better contrasting colors or a better peel than this?

I have always loved the look of flattened cardboard boxes bundled up outside a store for recycling. I was so excited to spot this huge group from the next alley over I made an illegal turn. It was six o'clock on a Saturday morning. No one was around who really cared what I was doing.

The sun, even at that hour was a bit strong - so now I know I'm going to have to look on the west sides of buildings, along an alley, in the early morning to find more exciting opportunities like this.

And, obviously, there are other themes of photos that I'll post later. Just not enough time to do all my jobs - both the ones I expect myself to do and the ones others expect me to do. hmmmmm.

Successful hunting for some great photos!

Cool pictures. Looks like a very successful photo safari. The first picture also makes me want to know about the person behind the easel behind the window behind that brick wall.

I'm with you on here! I think it would be torturous to be limited tp 24 photos! I love your random selection here, you have a great eye for a good shot!
