The Green Monster

GREEN

Green is the perfect theme for this photo for 3 reasons. 1. This is the Incredible Hulk Coaster at Islands of Adventure in Orlando, FL. Obviously the coaster itself is green. 2. That is my family (without me) in the third row from the front. I can honestly say I am not “green” with envy. 3. Passersby would probably have told you that I looked a little “green” as I watched my family be flipped upside down and all around at a high-speed.  So this is my version of green 3 ways. – Diane

Blurred Lines

BLUR

On a recent stay in a hotel, I walked by the pool and became fascinated with the way the surface of the water looked. I took this shot because I liked how the water distorted the lines of the steps. – Diane

PANORAMA

This was the perfect night to be 5 floors up to watch the sunset over the Gulf Of Mexico. The clouds and colors made for a great show. I thought I had more panorama shots of the sunset but, I was just learning how to use the panorama setting on my camera. Some of the more dramatic ones just came out as regular photos.  Hopefully I will be using those for themes too. – Diane

Keeping the Peace

CALM

This statue just makes me feel calm. I know there is symbolism in the hands posed that way but to me it just means stop and breathe. Right now I have to admit I’m jealous of those of you that practice daily meditation. It seems so peaceful. – Diane

Falling Apart

I found this car in Key West while hunting for the theme, neglected. I decided on a different photo for neglected and have waited for the right theme for this photo. I think falling apart will work just fine. I had some fun adding the grunge effect to it. – Diane
