Here you will often find my thoughts of the day, with the occasional vent - but first and foremost this is where I can share my passion for stitching.

Photo Hunt - Lights (& Round)


Grab the Scavenger Hunt code.
Photo Theme. Join the blogroll.


This week's theme was a definite challenge for me while hunting through my minimal photo library (oh boy, I miss my huge pile of photos back in Auckland) ... but I managed to find something that would fit the theme of "Lights".

This photo is of a row of street lights illuminating the way down St Kilda Pier in Melbourne (well, they would be illuminating the way if it was dark LOL).



Next up are some lights illuminating the room at the Sik Sik Yuen Wong Tai Sin Temple in Hong Kong (and a very difficult shot for me to get trying to reach up behind the barrier, and around a stone 'dragon', as well as missing the guard on duty ;) Under the circumstances, it came out OK :)



Lucky last, here's an archival theme - this one is "Round" ... I had a few choices to use, but opted to do use this one - definitely not a great photographic shot, but I like it for the 'round theme'. Any LOTR fans will recognise this character - chasing the ring over the rooftop of Wellington Airport in New Zealand! :D

That last photo is a bit scary... people still flew out of that airport? ;) I bet those lights on the pier were lovely at night.

I love you pictures for the theme of Lights. They are perfect. The first one reminds me of a pier in the Northern part of Michigan. Wonderful contribution.

Thanks for visiting.
