The third Monday at Lens and Pens by Sally is black and white. I had my car into the dealership a few weeks ago for some work and this statue was in a corner of the waiting area. It was taken with my iPhone5.
Then I took a few liberties with pho.to editing!
The third Monday of the month challenge from Lens and Pens by Sally is black and white. I was in downtown Orlando in January on another Monday holiday and took this photo in front of City Hall. The following is an excerpt taken from an article in the Orlando Sentinel on July 23, 2013 by Scott Maxwell:
…Florida officials celebrated news that the state’s homeless population is shrinking.
But not in Central Florida.
Here, it is on the rise.
Yes, the same Council on Homelessness report that found a 17 percent drop statewide cited a 29 percent increase in Orange County.
And a 50 percent increase over the last five years.
I know, I know, this should be all about me. Well, it’s not! We were downtown recently for the monthly Cruz-n-Car show and I actually have quite a few “over 50” pictures. But I’ve chosen these (and they’re not cars!!).
This first picture is obviously an old tractor, date unknown. Behind it sits the object I really wanted to photograph but was unable. It is a 1907 citrus sprayer.
This next photo is the hood ornament on a 1938 Chevrolet. The car had a beautiful pearly white paint job. The hood ornament is kind of plain compared to some ornaments, I think.

It’s Phoneography Challenge Monday for black & white again! I’ve chosen another backyard photo taken on a whim using my iPhone 5.
