Last week I was in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. One afternoon I took a walk in the Great Smoky Mountains and there were many wildflowers along the trail. The whole time I could hear the sound of rushing water and the sunlight was rather pale as it filtered through the leaves on the trees. The mountain air was fresh and very fragrant. Here are some of the flowers and other sights along the path.
I just got back from a short trip that included a visit to Gatlinburg, Tennessee. There was a chair lift ride that provided panoramic views of the mountains when I reached the top. On the way down I was directly above this scene just before I got off. You may notice the shadow in the top corner. I’ve included some other pictures to show what I could see from my seat on the chair lift.
When I was walking along Magnificent Mile in Chicago the John Hancock Center was quite an impressive sight. When I finally reached it I had to stand back to get pictures of the top of the building. Here are different views of when I looked up.
My recent visit to Pike Place Market in Seattle provided a great opportunity to see lots of different colors. Fresh fruits and vegetables were a welcome sight during a long winter. Here are some of the colors of the market displays.
For a contrast, I took two pictures of the same scene – one in black and white and one in color.
I spent some time last fall in St. Petersburg, Florida which is on Tampa Bay. The water is so much a part of the scenery I decided to show pictures from different times of the day. Here are some views of the bay.
For this week’s theme I thought of two pictures showing completely different scenes. The first is from Chicago showing late afternoon traffic. The second is from the Foothills Parkway in Tennessee and leads to panoramic views of the Great Smoky Mountains.
Both roads may lead to adventure, so take your pick!
There may still be snow on the ground but spring will arrive next month. So although it is winter, warmer weather is on the way. Here are some pictures that I took of flowers, fruits and vegetables from Pike Place Market in Seattle when I visited there recently. It was wonderful to see these bright colors!
When I was in Seattle I thought that Pike Place Market was a good starting point for walking around the city. While I was there I was able to see a lot of local places within a few blocks. I had a map that made it simple to get around. Because it either rained or was overcast during the time I was there I decided to take black and white pictures to show the city in a slightly different way.
