About Me

My photo
Recent retiree--35 year's experience teaching reading, English, adult basic education and volunteer leadership skills. Started this blog to exchange ideas and commentary with friends and others having an interest in joining the discussions. Greatest life accomplishments include: 1.organized my 3rd grade class to check out library books for me to get around librarian's weekly limit--Amazon.com, the Mullins Elementary 3rd Grade Class of 1956 is still waiting for "thank you" notes; 2. volunteered in the Peace Corps, island of St. Kitts, West Indies; 3.taught adults to read, earn their GEDs., and speak English as a second language; 4. bought a border collie puppy for $6, got evicted rather than give him up, and began a life-long love affair with all things "Dog"; 5. joined a physical fitness boot camp in my mid-50s--don't mess with someone who's been doing regulation pushups in wet grass at 5:30 a.m.; 6. walked across Northern England with best friend Sally--over 80 miles from the Irish to North Seas; and 7. travelled to many foreign countries for pleasure and work.

Good Photos Challenge Day 22 - Hands

30 Day Good Photos Challenge, Day 22 Subject - Hands

Back at Sister's Tea Room in Buckner getting a lesson in tea drinking etiquette from my two little pals. On the right, how to pour. On the left, how to stir. Previously, they had a manners class at the tea room.

I don't comment on every photo you take, but I'm finding them just so interesting!!!! and beautiful! I just didn't want to go to every post and say the same thing over and over again. Not being "in the know" about photography, I can't really discuss how you achieved the effect or what F-stop was used or how you got an exposure, but I can tell you that I'm really enjoying these!

sayre-I hear you. Not to worry. This has been a good blog topic for this time of the year because everyone is so busy. I'm about ready to get back to words with some photos thrown in though. For some of our blog friends who mostly concentrate on photography, I enjoy seeing their work and pick up little tidbits, but can't always find something original to say other than I appreciate their work. Takes all kinds to make things interesting!
