ABC Wednesday - X is for Xography





X is for Xography..........

A new word for today - Xography.


Which means: photographic process for producing three-dimensional images.


 Now, I do not have any equipment that does this.


And this photo has nothing to do that with that process either.


But I can't help thinking how pretty this one would be if it was three-dimensional.

ABC Wednesday - W is for Woo-Hoo!






W is for Woo-Hoo!..........



 the water edge of the lake in the summer

 

Today is the first day of summer - that is plenty to be excited about!


It's the longest day of the year - in daylight hours, that is.


And here in our little spot on the globe it is 96 degrees.


Pretty hot for this time of the year - we don't usually see these temps until the end of July or beginning of August.


Tomorrow is supposed to be even hotter.


Good thing we have the refreshing coolness of the lake to go swimming in.


Headed there as soon as this gets posted.


Woo-hoo for summer!!

ABC Wednesday - V is for Viewer




V is for Viewer..........

These viewers can be found at many of the panoramic view sites across our state.

From the mountains to the seacoast, one will find these metal "binoculars" which allows the user to get a closer look at distant scenes as they move and pan the viewer around on the post.

But one cannot just walk up to one and begin using it.

They cost money.

Not sure how long they run once the money is inserted - I have never used one.

I usually have my camera with me, and I am sure my lenses give me a better look than that contraption can deliver!

Rhododendron Blossom





Rhododendron Blossom

Most of them have passed now as they are mid-spring bloomers.

But when they are in blossom, they are so beautiful.

All different colors depending on the owner's choice.

I set these beauties in a vase on the table.

They didn't last long, but their bright colors were a joy to see.
