9/10/11

Scavenger Hunt Sunday



1.  Remember


Photography love...


And, Sam thought of this one...

(He made this for me when he was younger.)



2.  Process of Elimination




3.  Statue(s)




4.  Flying High




5.   Bokeh

(The morning dew makes our front lawn appear golden,
and up-close it's full of tiny bokeh!)

















On September 11, 2001, I worked for Aon Consulting in Atlanta.  Our 
company had offices in Building 2 (South Tower) of the Twin Towers. 
We lost 176 lives that day...175 employees and an unborn baby.

I'll be back in the blog world Monday.

Dina, these are just stunning. That must have been such a terrifying day for you and your work family and home family. My sister was on a plane that day and we had no clue where she was for 6 hours, and living in NY, we felt like it was our backyard. My heart goes out to you tomorrow.

Gorgeous shots Dina. I love your Remember shots and that bokeh.

Stephani said...

Okay that bokeh shot is so cool. I have never seen a shot where the bokeh was in the foreground and everything in the background is in focus. At least I haven't noticed it before. So neat!

Very very nice. Your bokeh is so pretty, and the remember is touching.

I love how you have the bokeh in the foreground of your capture. Most people seem to place it in the background. Creative choice.

These are all great!

Nicolle said...

Have thought of you all weekend, and the co-workers who you lost on 9/11. No words I can say will be any good, just know that I am sad for you, and for all of their friends and family.

Beautiful photos!

Cedar said...

I was thinking oh, nice set, creative calendar, LOVE that bokeh, but the unborn baby just makes me cry (and all the other lives lost.) Being on the West Coast it is easy(ish) to forget, but important to remember.
