I have recently found out about a fun blogger activity called PhotoHunt. The basic idea is that there are pre-selected themes and anyone who wants to play can go to the theme list and see what the theme for a given Saturday might be. Then you can tag your post to make it easy for others to find you. You can also add a comment to the home page , if you like, after you post. My first photograph for this week's theme is the cropped goose above the Photo Hunter button, at the top. It occurred to me that the shape of the body of the goose looked similar to a 2. I also liked the pair of geese I photographed last fall and therefore, I am including them below since they add up to 2 geese. The advantage to beginning with a theme like 2 is that I have loads of photographs which I've taken in the past that work with that theme. For fun, I took some more to add to what I already had on hand. The disadvantage to a theme like 2 is there are two or rather too many possibilities. I hope it's alright that I went with too many photographs. The photo above is a close-up of two ameliopsis berries. They are quite small but I like the way they look together in a close-up shot. The one below cracks me up because the two ducks are simultaneously scratching an itch. Not that I find having an itch that's hard to scratch particularly amusing but if someone took a candid shot of me and a friend and we were both scratching an itch, completely irrespective of what the other was doing, it might be amusing after the fact. I mention that so any ducks reading don't think I'm picking on them.
I took the photograph of the two morning glory flowers, below, a week or so ago. I've been taking a lot of closeup shots of individual morning glories but there was something about these two that called out to be kept together.
A couple of cups were calling me to include them as another two. If I were a poet I'd probably try to come up with a poem for a couple a cups. I'll spare you my couple a cups poem since I'm not a poet. I rarely use those cups but looking at them on my screen makes me think I should have someone over for a tea party. Maybe I will.
I think I'll end Theme Two Saturday with a perfect pair. Those two would be lovely as individuals but my romantic side enjoys the way they are heading out together into the sunset on the clear lake. The place holder for PhotoHunt 71: Two on the hosts site is one way to get links to other PhotoHunter's, take on two, if you are interested. You can also use any of the zillion alternate links I have scattered around. Hey, this is my first time and I'm trying . . . PhotoHunt
