Friday Shoot-Out: Favorite

Well, to celebrate a year of FSO, we were supposed to pick our favorite topic.  There were so many to choose from!  What I did is choose a variety from past FSO postings.  These photos are some of my favorites.  Check out http://mytownshootout.blogspot.com/ for more FSO shooters.  These shots are my favorites for different reasons, as I will explain:
This is John trying on a hat in a store.  I make him try on hats because he takes on the personality of the hat so well!

This is what I call "The Door to Nowhere" although I do not know its actual intention.  It is down the street from where I live and I pass by it quite often.  I just find it to be fascinating!  Maybe one day I will find out its true purpose.

This was taken at an outside place of worship known as "Padre Pio".  It is a very peaceful place and I love the feel of it being outside.

I liked this one because I had fun playing around with it on the computer.  I am just learning about editing photos so practicing can be quite entertaining!

This is a view from my balcony.  NJ has really gotten an unbelievable amount of snow this winter and we may be getting a lot more tonight!!

This I took while on a "photo walk" with John's daughter, M.  We just basically took a walk around the apartment complex taking pictures of anything that inspired us. 

This picture I like because I love taking shots of the sky and I love looking at the sky.  It has the most amazing colors sometimes.

I must say that I have loved participating in the FSO.  It has been an inspiration and a great learning experience, not to mention that there are so many great photographers who participate.  I can't wait to participate for another year!

  3. The door to nowhere would be a good image to do the poem thing you did with open road. Poem thing? I can't even remember words for a comment. Great photos and stories behind them. The wall butterfly on your walk with John's daughter was great...as well as the circumstances of the taking.

  4. I enjoyed your comments almost as much as the pictures.

    I liked the pattern the benches made and looking at those icicles really brought winter's chill home to me.
