Picture Parade Pt. 1


Well, I was BEYOND happy with the response I got from my previous post, asking that you send me your favorite photographs.

Thank you! You guys are the BEST. And I’m so proud to show off each and everyone of them!

In total, I received 20 photographs. Therefore, I’ve decided to post them in groups of 10.

  1. Good morning Ron,

    Egg on my face time... I TOTALLY missed your post about this!
    Please excuse me. I would have loved to participate.

    I think that each of this pictures has a very special feeling.
    I love very much the sunset pictures. I am a pushover for a beautiful sunrise/sunset.

    Definately; I am looking forward to the next lot! Congrats to all for your excellent shots.

  12. I'm late, I'm late... I didn't know we were up and running. What a great collection of pictures, Ron. There are some talented people out there. I like that you gave the link to the participants blogs. I'm off to do a bit of touring in a minute or two. Thanks for selecting the one you selected, hubs will think he's famous if he sees it. I think the one that catches my eye the most is the boat and the rolling black clouds. That one definitely has character. Looking forward to seeing the next batch. Hope you're prepared for a great weekend x

    Err...oops. That wasn't part of your readers' exhibit? Look who's got egg on his face now!

    OK, seriously, like everybody else I really dig the jalopy. Also the hay bales and Monument Valley. This is a great idea that I may have to borrow myself, Ron. Can't wait to see the next batch - and I don't say that just because you're posting my pic, either!

  30. HOLY cow......

    These are some amazing photos. AMAZING.

    There's detail and interesting lines and great focus--every single one of them got a lot of eyeball time over here.
    Gosh.....they're just so incredible.......

    (Me and Babs had the same thought....LOL..go figure!)


    Seriously--they're spectacular photos.
    Wow......

    I'm going to go back, link myself up with folks and give my thanks for their bravery and for sharing the world through their eyes.

    Thanks, Ron--this was a brilliant idea when Barb did it. And it was worthy of repeating it and extending it to others.

  37. ...I love these! Fabulous shots everyone! I will have to enter the next time around but first I'll need to come up with something decent to enter. *sigh*

    ...The one by Linda pulled at my heartstrings, I used to drive that same model of truck at one time. I've always been a sucker for old cars & trucks and at one time I owned and drove a 1946 1/2 ton Chevy truck. I loved it. Seeing the photo brought back memories. :o)

    ...Enjoy your weekend my friend!

    ...Blessings :o)

    No, buddy, you're not late...you're just in time!

    Lately, I've been missing posts on my Google reader too. It's been happening for a couple of weeks. Somehow certain blogs that I subscribe to are having a delay in when I receive them in my reader.

    "All pictures are awesome - and I take particular interest in landscape photography."
