Photohunters: Blue

The photohunter theme this week is blue. I live in North Carolina so I thought I'd show you the last blooms of my crepe myrtle tree which I shot against a Carolina Blue sky last month.Forgive me, but I can't resist taking this opportunity to fly the colors of my political party, since we will be holding a presidential election in the U.S. next week. Three guesses who I'll be voting for.
Last but not least, I thought my uncarved pumpkin would look cute in a blue cap. I think I'm going to be lazy and not carve my pumpkin.If you get a chance to visit Snap2Days, we have a duo PH post there. Happy Halloween and have a great weekend! To visit early bird photohunters you can browse technorati here - and on Saturday at the Home of the Photohunt.

I love all three of these. This is going to be a good theme.

Carolina blue skies! Remember those old bumper stickers that said, "If God is not a Tar Heel, then why is the sky Carolina blue?"

And Barack to the Future! Have a good weekend, Annie

That's a beautiful shot of your crepe myrtle tree against a perfect blue sky.

You can always dress up your pumpkin if you don't feel like carving it. :)

We just planted 2 crepe myrtles!:) They are doing well so far...:) They look beautiful against the sky.

I love the blue sky! Halloween just isn't such a big thing over this side of the Atlantic, so I've never carved a pumpkin in my life.

Digital Polaroids said...

Beautiful compilation of blues!

Beautiful photos.. Let's hope we will see change in the future. Eight years of Bush has just about done us in here.

ZJ said...

Love the blue sky of North Carolina!
It's election time soon -- good luck. We on this side of the planet are hoping that whoever wins will be better than the current one.

Aileni said...

Great blues, the pumkin shows of the blue really well.

Expat Traveler said...

I just love your blue picks! :)

JC said...

If you don't carve the pumpkin, or at least open him up, you'll miss the next best thing... toasting the seeds!

Cindy said...

Love the first shot- makes me long for spring and we haven't gotten to winter yet...
October's Bright Blue Weather

girasoli said...

Go Blue!! Love your "choices".

tanabata said...

Nice variety of blues!
I think the whole world is watching to see who will win the election.

Colin Campbell said...

I love the blue with the pumpkin. Gobama! That will make all the repugs all blue.

jaejae said...

well, i'm pretty sure Obama's not feeling 'blue' himself even at this last few days of tension & jitters. he's a sure winner already...

enjoy the rest of the weekend carver!

Theresa said...

love the blue - always a fan of the clear blue crisp sky--

yes and you get the most creative award for the blue Obama/Biden sign!!!
