Saturday, August 18th, 2007 POD #6

My post for Saturday comes pretty early! This is because I will be gone all day Saturday, late into the nite, possibly early Sun am! We are heading to OZZfest in a few hours, in Hartford CT! :)

My post for today, is another scenic photo from our drive last week to upstate NY. The contrast is something, isn't it??? Funny how I got so many different weather scenes in 1 trip:)

This photo was taken at 1:09 in the afternoon, though, on our way back home. NY truly has some beautiful landscapes, all varieties - big city, small city, town, countryside, farms, etc. Lots of mountainous terrain though, too:)

August 14th, 2007 Tuesday POD#2



Today's photos are from Napanoch, NY. This is the Eastern New York Correctional Facility. It is a bit down the road from us & we drove by there this evening (went out & put some gas in the car to get out of the house! MUCH cooler outside!) I found a few PODs today I really liked, so I linked them below;) Check them out.

When we drove to the other end of the prison, there is a train platform there.

On the way back down the road to leave, there is this interesting little "gazebo". I don't imagine too many people are allowed to "sit around" outside the prison! LOL



My favorite PODs for today are:

Minneapolis Daily Photo - I really love this city view! I also love the B&W version also shared!
Selma, AL. Daily Photo - beautiful turtle;)

August 13th, 2007 - Monday POD #1












When we came out & got in the car at 8:15am, this is what we looked at. The drops on the window looked very "neat". They had a purpose ya know, and all in line. Each drop different, but all perfect little drops of water.

Well, August 13th, 2007

So surfing through other people's blogs, I've come across many "---- Photo of the Day Blog" ---- being a city name.

Being the picture hog that I am, I have decided to do the same. Hopefully, I can remember to take many photos every day to choose one from.

I don't know that I am going to make it city specific, being that I am usually through a few small towns when I do go out. So. . .we'll see. Maybe 1 per area?? :)
