I took this in May and have been waiting until now to post it. If I was really participating in the Alphabet challenge, this would be disqualified since we are suppose to take current pics each week. But I’m making up my own rules. Anyway, I got a kick out of how ghoulish this cactus look when I got down low and took the photo straight on.
Finally, the digging is completed on the sewer project. But to accomplish removing the dirt on this last final bit meant that the tractor would need to sit on air, literally. I put the camera in movie mode when the team maneuvered into this position. Fortunately Travis is fearless and pulled this feat off like a pro. I was ready, though, for an opportunity to submit an entry to America’s Funniest Videos.
The park is still in the midst of the big sewer dig and somehow the diggers nicked an electric wire… which put the electricity out for half the park. This was the same day as the “massive” afternoon storm, which probably made the repairs that much more difficult. This truck pulled up after dark in the site across from our RV to replace the whole electric box unit. I decided to pull out the camera and tripod and see what I could do with bright strobe light. I’m positive that my fellow residents have confirmed that I’m a crazy woman for taking photos of the truck in the dark… but isn’t that the cost of our hobby? The strobe light didn’t work out the way I expected, but I do like the results anyway.

B is for Blue Birdhouse and Blue Sky
It would have been nice to have a bird in the photo… but they are all hanging out at the bird feeder .
I’ve just decided to do the alphabet challenge privately… that is I’m posting here on my blog but not at the site that is hosting the challenge. It’s the second week that I’m too late to submit my link. Anyway, the point is to “see” fresh subjects to photograph, which it seems to be doing.
The fruit truck surprised us with a drive through the park today. We haven’t seen him in months. So I bought avocados, oranges, tomatoes and grapefruit.
I hadn’t planned on making any of this part of today’s blog until I saw the 2 entries for the Alphabet Challenge and realized that I had bought an “A.”
For lighting, I used a combination of natural, stove top and overhead fluorescent. Not a light box but it seems to have worked.
