Has anyone noticed that we are all becoming better photographers over time?
BUTLER: "Not to mention that you have finally learned to spell 'silhouette' without having to look it up."
Score one for the concept of lifelong learning.
It's great to see Doreen back!
Doreen's romantic sunset
And two newcomers...at least they are new to me. I apologize if they used to be weekly contributors in the past and I just wasn't paying close enough attention.
(1) Barb's not-so-romantic cowboy nose
I was also impressed by Barb's interactive blog design where you can look at her pictures in a variety of ways. I think Bagman is still playing with it.
(2) Suzy's light-dark-light-dark sunset
Plus some great shots from some of our most prolific contributors --
Pauline's Ponga Tree
Jama's Spectacular Spinners Shot
Ginger's Perfectly Framed Ocean
(She's even given it a digital matte!)
I really want to thank you all for allowing me to be your Spotlight Editor. Getting to look at everyone's pictures every week; it's the best job in the world!
And next week we have "Gates and Fences". So grab your cameras, saddle up, and let's all lift our voices and join Cole Porter in a rousing rendition of:
"Oh, give me land, lots of land, under starry skies above
Don't fence me in
Let me ride thru the wide-open country that I love
Don't fence me in
Let me be by myself in the evening breeze
Listen to the murmur of the cottonwood trees
Send me off forever, but I ask you please
Don't fence me in"
BUTLER: "Excuse me, Mark, but that's the opposite of the theme. If nobody was fenced in, there's be nothing to shoot."
"Yes," I reply, "but Mending Wall by Robert Frost is harder to dance to."
I do have a basic belief in Democracy despite my sense that American politics turns it into a circus. Therefore, since a motion was made by Scriptor and seemed to have support from others, I will spotlight my bike shot. Thanks for the support.
