Sky Watch Friday and other Photo Challenges



Today the skies have been a gloomy gray. Yesterday was much the same, with even a bit of rain. So I am sharing a few skies from our trip to lake George in early August.



Had to share a couple from the fireworks over the lake, in Shephard's Park - which take place every Thursday during the summer.




Be sure to check here to see awesome skies from around the world.


Other Photo Challenges

At "Little Things Thursday", the challenge is to share those small things that mean so much.
As I wandered in our yard today, I finally caught the morning glories in full bloom. Usually after lunch they're gone, so I was happy to see them.




The theme this week at "Thursday Challenge" is "Seat" - something you can sit on.
As I looked at the flowers and checked for tomatoes, my eyes fell on the willow chair I had made over 15 years ago. I still have the scar from when I hit a knot on a branch and sliced my thumb.From cutting the willow branches, to sawing the pieces, to nailing the chair together, it was a special challenge.

The fireworks are great! Nice images :-)
I like photo challenges too, I'm not a photographer but I like taking pics and challenges like this makes me find better angles and subjects for photos. I could pretend to be a professional photographer for a moment, lol...
