Ellipsis Monday Photo Shoot #61 -- Halloween

I am having to obtain pictures from my archives for this Ellipsis Monday Photo Shoot in a different way, by obtaining them from Flickr. Previously I could save them but that no longer seems to be an option. So here they are, one at a time.

The theme is Halloween this time and I have fairly old pictures of a couple of my cats dressed up. This is of Stevie, as a princess. The next one is of Chester, as a pirate.

The next is of me and Steve, dressed up as his mom and dad for a Halloween party back in the late 1970's.

And last is grandchildren Noah and Emily dressed up as R2D2 and Raggedy Ann last year.

I'm sorry I have to refer you to Flickr but they have apparently changed their format for saving archived photos to our picture files. I think that's a total bummer! Anyway, I hope you don't mind checking these pictures out.

Round Robin Photo Challenge -- Shooting in Low Light (Indoors and Out)

Today's Round Robin Photo Challenge has the theme "Shooting in Low Light (Indoors and Out). My low light shots seem to be nearly all outdoors. The first two here are near-sunset shots from my front yard/driveway area, which I love to take.

This is my now-gone kitty, Chester, up in a flowering plum out front near sunset.

During my recent trip to the beach, I caught the following near-sunset and sunset shots from my motel room window in Newport, Oregon.

To see more low light pictures and/or to play along, go to the link in the first paragraph.

EMPS #58 -- Bridges and Walkways

Today's Ellipsis Monday Photo Shoot is about bridges and walkways. I love bridges in particular, and I have also captured a photo of a walkway with a bridge in the background, so I'm all set. The first shot is of the Yaquina Bay Bridge from my rented condo room in the Yaquina Bay.

Here is the spectacular bridge over the Snake River Canyon at Twin Falls, Idaho, where my mother lived until her passing almost 2 years ago.

This is the Astoria-Megler bridge, which soars high enough to let large ships pass beneath it, in Astoria, Oregon. It crosses to the Washington side over the Columbia River.

Here is the Florence, Oregon riverfront, the shot with the walkway and the bridge in the background. I'm not sure which river this is.

To see more pictures of bridges and walkways, go to the link in the first sentence and follow directions, especially if you want to participate, which is fun!

Round Robin Photo Challenge -- In Motion

The creatures who are nearest me and who are always in motion are my cats. Here are some pictures of them doing their thing.

Socksie likes to get up on my bedroom door and scrabble around up there. She is doing just that in these two shots.

Socksie starting to go in the closet, up over my basket of shoes that I can't wear thanks to my bad toes.

Here are Silver and Stevie in a fight. That's the ultimate of motion among the cats!
