LensProToGo 52 Week Photo Project - Week 13 Submission

My submission for week 13 themed "New Beginnings"

A female Eastern Bluebird "Momma" as we call her is bringing new material for her nest. This is the third year we've had a pair of Eastern Bluebirds nest in this house. She eventually took all of the dryer lint by the fence post and used that in her nest as well.

Sitting on my shelf at work is the last remaining Y2K Bug :)

LensProToGo 52 Week Photo Project - Week 11 Submission

My submission for week 11 themed "My Lucky Something"

I wouldn't say that I really have anything I consider as a lucky charm or anything like that but the closest thing I have would be the POW bracelet I've worn since 1988. I got it while going through one of the Professional Military Education classes I attended while I was still in the Air Force. The man listed on the bracelet is CMSgt Fred Lee Clarke and he's been missing since Dec 13, 1968. Ironically the 13th would become a special number to me in later years. My wife, Donna, and I had our first date on the 13th of the month. Later when we got married it was on the 13th. I know this photo isn't that great but I did my best to draw out some detail.

LensProToGo 52 Week Photo Project - Week 9 Submission

My submission for week 9 themed "Abstract"

From of or pertaining to the formal aspect of art, emphasizing lines, colors, generalized or geometrical forms, etc., especially with reference to their relationship to one another. These photos were taken with my iPhone. One is the super close up of the table top and the other is a normal view of it. I think it meets the definition of abstract.
