On Top

Two submissions for the weekly photo challenge On Top. First up is a photo I call “Top Down.” I took this inside the lighthouse at Hunting Island State Park. I was on the top level looking down at the spiral staircase I just finished climbing.

The next photo I took in my back yard. I call it “Mossy Top” in honor of the old bluegrass melody “Rocky Top”. It’s a picture of some kind of moss or fungus growing on “top” of the limbs on one of our dogwood trees. Since I named it in honor of a bluegrass song, I can also use this post to further one of my goals for this blog – to share my passion for bluegrass music.

 

 

So, please enjoy The Osborne Brothers singing Rocky Top. And while you sing along, and I know you will, change Rocky Top to Mossy Top to honor my picture.

The “Rich100Award” Presentation

Rich100Award

Before I announce the winner of “The Inaugural Rich100Award” allow me a moment to say this. If I had an orchestra of French horns, violins, and a timpani, I would conduct them in a rousing rendition of Tchaikovsky’s “1812 Overture.” Since I don’t, I’m going to cheat and use this rousing rendition from youtube to announce the winner, and yes, I know I used the photo again, but it is edited with the winners name.

And the winner is…Mr. Osama Iftikhar at poemsandpeople.wordpress.com. Please join me in a hearty congratulations to Mr. Iftikhar on this remarkable achievement. And while you are at it, you must visit his blog. He has a remarkable voice that beckons to us all.

Thank you sir for visiting and following this little blog of mine.

On The Edge

This is a few weeks late, I know, but here is my photo interpretation of “Threshold.” I call it “On The Edge.” I’m really lousy at devising really cool titles. This moment was captured at Hunting Island State Park, near Beaufort, South Carolina.
