One Word Photo Challenge: Hummingbird

This week, Jennifer has chosen Hummingbird as her word of the week. I have a couple of hummingbird photos that I took recently after borrowing a friend’s older Canon DSLR to play around with. I’m afraid most of my shots came out blurry. But I’d like to say it’s because the hummingbird wouldn’t hold still and the camera was sooo heavy and ….. Besides, I wasn’t ready….. Would you believe the rope was bobbing? Fine, I’m going back to my iPhone5! 😛

Caturday Art

I created this picture of Maggie a while back and failed to post it for Caturday Art! The original was blurred and not much good for anything! So, here we go. I only remember that I used Dreamscope (can’t remember which theme) and a Fotor border.

Nurturing Thursday

Becca at “On Dragonfly Wings with Buttercup Tea” hosts this challenge each Thursday. I put this together as my contribution. The photo was taken last month using my iPhone5 while out and about running errands.

Even if you cannot always see that
silver lining on your clouds,
GOD CAN,
For He is the very source
of the light you seek

 

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Fire Trucks, Fire Houses, Fire Hydrants

This week the topic is Fire Trucks, Fire Houses, Fire Hydrants.  Basically anything to do with putting fires out. These were all taken with my iPhone5.

Our little rural hydrant just across the lane from our house. I’m not sure I’ve ever seen such a skinny little hydrant. Let’s hope we never need it. But, should we ever need it, let’s hope this little guy is surprisingly stout!

Took this one from our backyard in Winter Garden some time ago. Not sure what they were doing as I could not spot any smoke or fires in the area (thank goodness!)

Sunday Selfies Week #154

Every Sunday, The Cat on My Head features a Sunday Selfies Blog Hop. This is Maggie. She was sitting on my lap while we were relaxing in the catio. I only got the picture because she was completely taken by surprise! Photo was taken with my iPhone5.
