This week’s Foto Friday Fun was open to several options. Readers could either send me one of their favorite photos with a story or link to their story, or choose a number from 94 to 104. Three people sent a photo and three chose a number. Nice balance.
From Diane blogs at http://lifeincharente.blogspot.com, http://aboutmebeforecharente.blogspot.com, and http://photodiarydps.blogspot.com sharing photos and stories from her life’s travels from the past and present. “My favorite photo of this year is the reflection of Rochefoucauld Chateau in the River Tardoire with the old bridge in the back ground.
“The chateau originally dating from the 11th century stands on the edge of La Rochefoucauld. It was modified many times in the following centuries to become the impressive renaissance monument we see today where the family still live in part of it. The arched bridge across the river Tardoire below the castle dates from the 15th century.”
Bibi chose #100 because it, “Reminds me of those $1.00 shops.” I believe she’ll appreciate my $1.00 cut-glass stemware from a thrift store complete with Kaluha. And although I can barely believe it I made it into two thrift stores last week and didn’t buy anything.
Sherry chose #94 which takes me back to Frankfurt, Germany in 2010. A fellow Couch Surfer showed me around her city during a seven hour walking tour. We had a lot of fun and I learned about the city’s history.
Jo chose #102, one of my favorite places at Grand Canyon. Toroweap is exceedingly remote and offers an iconic view 3000 feet (914 m) straight down into the Colorado River. It’s such a long drive it’s most practical to camp there to enjoy amazing sunrises, like this, and sunsets.
MaryBeth sent this amazing shot and shares a story. “I just love this pic of Kylee on my horse Ambush. Kylee is either running barrels or running poles and she just goes all out. Love the flying hair. Kylee is 19 now and this shot was taken about 5 years ago. She still races and still goes full bore. Sadly Ambush has gone to greener pastures. She was a great gal.”
Elaine chose #97, Black-bellied Whistling ducks that I saw where my Mom used to live in San Benito, Texas.
Then she also sent in a favorite photo from a recent post about Creamers Dairy.
My choice this week shows how much growth has come up in Yarnell just over two months since the Yarnell fire. Looks like I’ll have some weeds to cut down when I return in October.
Thank you for joining in Foto Friday Fun. I really enjoy digging through my archives and pulling the stories from my memories. Plus it was fun to have readers share their favorite photos as well. I’ll do that again. If you’d like to join in next week leave a number between 10 and 1010 in a comment and maybe see your chosen image next week.
Do you have a favorite from this week?
