Through The Wires Thursday




“Then God planted a garden in Eden, in the east. He put the Man he had just made in it. God made all kinds of trees grow from the ground, trees beautiful to look at and good to eat.”
Genesis 2

Now the answer to what those bottle cap looking things were on the street. Many of you guessed manholes, and that was close. But two of you got it right! George Adams, of "Photos By Senior Hiker", and Cheryl, of "The Farmer's Daughter". These are covers to holes on gas station lots where the trucks fill the big underground gas tanks. Next time you get gas, look and see what color your station's are!

Such beautiful colors, Ginny! It is still winter, right? Going to be spring in a couple of months? :)

Beautiful. I know people who love the wires in their photos because it give the photo perspective and comparison. I, however, try to avoid them like the plague. It's hard to do in the city and even out in places where you never think they would be. Love the red colored tree.

Hi Ginny, Great Autumn colors --even if there are wires. I'm just so glad that I have a wonderful program now that can take those doggone things out.

Hugs,

Pretty Fall colors and Spring blossoms.
You asked about my trees with the buds.
It seems every year around this time the buds begin and by late Feb. Early March there is an explosion of green and blossoms. I hope the rains and wind won't do the damage it did last year.

Hi Ginny,

Great colour, the pictures are from a while ago I assume. Interesting topic you mailed me about today. Maybe we should skype once to talk about certain subjects.

Greetings,
Filip

Wow, such gorgeous colors in those trees.
I should have known about the covers. I've seen them a zillion times.

Creative colors here with wire

SquirrelQueen said...

With all those amazing colors the wires are not a problem. If we only took photos when there was a 100% clear view we would miss a lot of beauty.

I didn't even think about the covers at the gas station. I was thinking sidewalk, silly me! I'll look next time I get gas.

Chatty Crone said...

George said...

I'm glad to see that other photographers have problems with wires popping up in their pictures! The trees are beautiful, though.

Annie said...

Pretty!! In the midst of winter, it is so uplifting to see these.

LC said...

Those colors and your capture of them are awesome. Also awesome is your idea of writing down the
'good things" and happy moments on colorful little squares and stash them in a special jar for review at those blue times. Great idea. I have just the jar. Now for the paper and I will be ready to join you in year round Thanksgiving! Thanks Ginny!

Hi Ginny, Spectacular leaves! I really miss seeing leaves on the trees. Too cold here in TN for any leaves except on the Pines and Hemlocks. So thanks for the cherry look-bakc. Have a super great coming week!
