Picture Kaleidoscope 4/13/16

Had to do a backup before upgrading WordPress so now I have little time to finish this post. DOH! Time to hurry, hurry, hurry!

Red Cabins by Michael A Blanchette at Earthshots.org. Funny thing is it is the sky and mountain that grabbed me first. 😛

Look at the sky on this one! Called Rosy Inlet – nice work Mr. Blanchette!

Happy Holi by Rajib Singha at Earthshorts.org – such lovely colors! Lots of other cool pics at his flicker account. Very nice!

Have to run! Have a great and colorful day!

 

Picture Kaleidoscope 11/25/15 – Puerto Rico Edition

Morning!

Figured I’d start sharing my Puerto Rico pics. Will be setting up a gallery for them all, but it’s not ready yet. These are all phone camera pics. The gillion others were with my camera. So expect all sorts of photography mayhem soon.

Heh heh heh

Puerto Rico – a property of the US. Only need a drivers license to go there. Currency is the US Dollar. Main language is Spanish.

View of a little island we spotted from the plane.

Amazing skies. Clouds are the main thing you miss when you move away from PR.

Panorama from my uncle’s house in the mountains.

More views from his porch.

He has a set of  Hibiscus bushes as a partial fence.

I love the flowers from these bushes. Always make me think of home.

View from the balcony of the condo we got to stay in overnight.

Panorama from the top of the 1st viewing tower at El Yunque – PR’s protected rain forest.

Pano of the other side on the tower.

Pano at El Morro. Spanish fort in San Juan. All the pink shirts are students on a field trip.

Different pano view from the fort.

View from El Morro looking out. Huh, something happened as this bugger looks stitched! lol.

These are Quenepas. I’d not had some in 20 years! Last two times I’d made it home, they’ve not been in season. Ran across some when we went south. YAY! You bite the green to peel off the top. Then you use the bottom half as a cup. The fruit strands are stuck to a large seed. You put it in your mouth and suck off the strands. So good!

More torture to come later. 🙂
