Photo Non-Contest #186 -- Past Its Prime

Written Inc's theme this week is "past its prime."
I've chosen a lovely old truck on Antelope Island, which is in the middle of the Great Salt Lake.

Photo Non-Contest #185 -- Grayish

We haven't actually had winter here in Salt Lake this year, so things have not been anywhere near as gray as usual.  I had to turn to cemetery pics for a gray mood and some gray stone.

Have a look at Written Inc. to see more grayish entries.

Photo Non-Contest #184 -- Curves

Written Inc has declared this "curves" week, so I chose a shot of Scara Brae, a 5000-year-old village with curved walls.  It's rather Suessian, don't you think?

Photo Non-Contest #183 -- Pairs

The theme at Written Inc this week is "pairs."  And I actually found a shot I liked!
Here we have a pair of rotting posts off a pier in Oregon, taken from above on a modern dock.

Photo Non-Contest #182 -- Groceries

The theme at Written Inc this week is "groceries."
I do take a lot of food pictures, but usually after the food has been prepared.  I had to go back to some of my old still life shots to get some groceries for this week.

To be perfectly honest, though, those apples were off a tree in my yard and not really from a grocery store.

Photo Non-Contest #181 -- Screens

This was a tough one.  Written Inc has suggested techy screens, but I couldn't think of a single interesting thing to do with a snapshot of a computer or TV screen -- or even my iPod.  I guess I could've shot a photo of a photo on my iPod.......   Uh, maybe later in the week.
But then I remembered screens on the crypts that Max and I visited the last time we went to the cemetery together, and I thought of this shot of light hitting a tomb through the heavily screened ventilation window in the crypt:

It's odd, but it's kind of pretty.  And it sort of fits the theme.

Photo Non-Contest #180 -- Movement

The best I can do this week is to use a take off on Written Inc's bird in flight for these theme.
Here are some snow geese flying over Delta, Utah in late winter.

They don't look like much unless you enlarge the picture by clicking on it.  Just trust me that they were truly spectacular in real life.  :)
