Favourite Photos - Thematic Photography

Congratulations and grateful thanks to Carmi for his Thematic Photographic themes. This week is the 300th time he has set a theme for us to follow and in which he has given us free rein to show our favourite photos.

Here are just five of mine, most of which will have appeared on my blog before, at one time or another.

This is the most recent,

Bullfinch 2014

I wasn't very good with a camera before digital came along. Good photos were a bit 'hit' of 'miss.' This is a successful miss!

The blur just under her hand is a bridge across a stream.

The Infinity Bridge at Stockton-on-Tees provides a lot of opportunities for camera buffs. One of my favourite shots is this one taken looking up from the footbridge -

Dogs have featured in many of my posts and it's almost impossible to choose a favourite from amongst them. So I'm going to include two - of the same dog.

Oh these are my kind of favorite too! What a fun collection to share. Makes the heart and soul happy, as they should always be.

Poor Bullfinch, but what gorgeous colours. I trust he flew away OK. I think I told you we kept bird shaped stickers on our sliding doors in NC which cut down such accidents.

Love the pix of Cody.

What wonderful colours in these photos! And the dog, I hink almost all of us who participate in this project use photos of our dogs more than once for sure!

Gorgeous bullfinch - who thought of putting him on a shocking pink scarf?? And the others are great, too. Cody is wonderful!

The Bullfinch pops. Thanks for sharing.

The color of the bullfinch is incredible. The look on his (her?) face is precious. How lucky that your paths crossed.

Infinity Bridge could be a study in composition on the wall of any museum. Seriously...amazing. And Cody? I feel the need to give a dog a hug.

I love your world view, Bob, and am so glad we get to share through Thematic and our respective blogs. Here's to much more!

Beautiful colours in the bullfinch shot. Poor fellow - I hope he's ok now.
Cody - such a lovely dog. And I really like the bridge shot, too.
Thanks, Bob.
