Odd, Old, or Scenic.

1. This evening we stopped at the Shenandoah Museum of Contemporary Art in Strasburg. The proprietor was glad to show us around. Here are two mirrored pieces on a wall that incorporate lights that added pretty colors. The reflections just happened to be there.

2. One of the interesting things about a camera is that the act of selecting what to shoot can cut out the ordinary, creating something new.
Orange You Glad It's Friday?
3. The black and white self-portrait is from years ago when I was taking a darkroom course at NVCC. It's a double exposure with clouds.

4. There are some spots on Cedar Creek Battlefield where you get a good view of the sky. I wanted to capture the clouds for a Skywatch photo.

5. Floral Friday: Not far from the above spot is Belle Grove. This sign in their parking lot was hosting branches covered with flowers.


  1. Your self-portrait is fascinating. Lovely work.

  2. ...WOW, creating something new. Spectacular!

  3. Great clouds over battlefield, but the ones in your self-portrait don't come through for me. So you just look pensive.

  4. Your battlefield view is my favourite of these, Linda.

  5. I like the b&w self portrait double exposure. Very nice! Beautiful skywatch shot, too!

  6. Enjoyed all the photos and I also liked your black and white portrait. Must get to that museum one of these days. Thanks for sharing and enjoy the rest of your weekend :)

  7. Lovely collection of beautiful captures.

  8. Hi Linda please keep commenting on my blog because I love your comments.

  9. Cedar Creek Battlefield photograph is my favorite.

  10. Nice post. I really liked your 2nd shot. I'm guessing, vegetables cooking. Nice selfie shot. Pretty clouds and lovely flowers.

    1. No, it's actually a fountain in a garden center, looking straight into the water.

  11. Your self portrait is lovely.
