Sunday Stills (3-26-11 Blue) and (my camera 4-3-11)

All during last weekend's road trip to my mother's house, I took photos for the "Blue" Sunday Stills contest. Although I missed posting them because of computer troubles, I have decided to go ahead and post them anyway. I hope you enjoy.

For a short while, we followed half of a blue house, which took up over half of the road towards the very dark blue mountains under a very blue sky.

 This is part of my blanket that was laying in the back of the truck.
 I got kind of artsy and took photos of the cracks in the windshield. Yes, it does need replacing.



I have been wanting to go into this shop every time I drive past it. One day, I will.

This is Storey Lake, It should be blue but because of the drought conditions this winter, it is drying up. There is only water for about three months, they say.

 I think this is a neat little church with a blue roof.

 But, check out the cross in the cemetary!
 I didn't think the blue cross could be beat but I was wrong. Here's a pair of bluebirds in the field at my mom's house.
Oh yeah, this week's challenge is to show your camera. Except for having to read backwards, here it is, a Kodak EasyShare ZD8612 IS with 8.1 megapixels and 12X optical zoom. It's kind of large to hold but I used to use an Olympus OM10 so it feels similar.

So, there ya go, two Sunday Stills challenges in one posting.

Great collection of Blue photos -- but I have to say I really like the blue birds best. The pop of blue against the grass.

Oh my! Storey lake looks so different. I guess there aren't any wind surfers out there anymore. Sad! We need moisture something terrible!

Hope you had a great weekend at your Mom's.
