Lightbulb Jan 1, 2010 WDE Images Here

For all of you not going to parties tonight I am going ahead an posting a bit early.


I will be posting 16 images and a challenge
Please wait until all are uploaded before commenting - thank you.

You have 30 minutes to make your choice and choose your materials - you may use any medium.

For the next two hours, just go for it……then STOP!, scan or photograph your work and post it in your own new thread with your title, beginning with WDE, plus date, plus title.

Use WIP for any work in progress at the 2 hour mark, and MI for multiple images if other works are to be added before the following Monday.

NB. To avoid forum flooding, please put all of your work during the weekend, for the current WDE, into a single thread: multiple threads will be merged!
From the following TUESDAY, you may open a new thread for later work.

You have the whole week to participate - until the next WDE starts (usually Friday). If you finish a piece after that time, we now run a 'Catch-up' thread in the forum each month where you can post any WDE not completed in its allotted week .... it's a sticky near the top of the forum page.

After posting your contribution, please view others’ entries and comment and encourage when you can. Unless requested, please refrain from critiquing.

Since this is my last California WDE all these photos were taken in California.



Larger versions of the Images

Lets not pretend - I will start with the animals - Token non animal pictures at the bottom.

1 - Water a dilute tortoiseshell kitten that I fostered last year. have fun with the selective focus if you want.


2 - Louie my Italian Greyhound being noble in the back yard


3 - Clydesdale Horse in Harness - taken at the Grass Valley Draft Horse show


4 - Blue Wildebeest from Safari West. These are some of the worlds strangest looking beasts

5 - Red Wold from Chaffee Zoo. There is something visceral about coming upon a wolf peeking out of the bushes


6 - Andean Cock-of-the-Rock from the San Diego Zoo


7 - Shoebill Heron from San Diego Wildlife Park. These guys are over 3 feet tall



8 - Peacock - from any zoo in the world


9 - Ten Striped June Bug. I found this guy on the outside wall of Starbucks at 0600 one morning. I put it in one of their oatmeal containers until I could get a picture.


Now for the rest

10 - Me asleep in the back of the car as a child. Love the dress


11 - One of the only pictures of my father and I together. He died when I was 5. Not the best quality but then its 50 years old.


12 - Token orange flower from Filoli Estate


13 - Grotesque from the Gardens at Lotusland near Santa Barbara


14- Italian Urn again from Lotusland


15 - The Roofline from The Winchester Mystery House in San Jose


16 - The Courtyard of Mission San Juan Capistrano. Best know for the swallows returning every year.


Challenge - Try and have a wonderful and productive new year.

Again here is the link to the larger images

Enjoy

These are great -- especially that kitten of course! Love the kitten! You got me hooked with that tiny feline! All of them are good but the dilute tortie fluff is calling to me.

Re: Jan 1, 2010 WDE Images Here

Of course non animal photos are just there because you have to.

I am seriously going to have a hard time to pick few enough of the cute critters to include eating AND sleeping this weekend. What a wonderful way to start the new year!

Oooh I think I recognize that San Juan Capistrano courtyard from lo so many years ago. (Guess I'm not one of those yearly returning swallows...) What a fun pic of you asleep in the back of the car

Jean you always have the best photos! Did not go out last night but didn't think they'd be posted yet or the site would have disappeared, so no check...See several I'd love to try.
