Saturday Photo Hunt --- Card(s)


Recently I went to an Ikebana show in which a friend was participating. Each of the displays had the name of the flower arranger on a card and the style of the arrangement. Yes, lame I know.

Saturday Photo Hunt --- Informative


A signpost in Skagway, Alaska, informing you of which direction to take to various places. Of course it neglects to tell you that to some there are no roads or the distances, which can be considerable. Some are accessed directly on the White Pass and Yukon Railroad.

Skagway, gateway to the Klondike but everywhere practically:

Whitehorse and Carcross in the Yukon Territory - 114 and 65 miles repectively
Atlin in BC - 161 miles
Nome Alaska, the finish of the Iditarod Sled Dog Race - 1643 miles
Fairbanks Alaska - 546 miles
this way for the Chilkoot Pass - 33 miles and straight up
or that way for Whitepass - 15 miles and straight up.

Saturday Photo Hunt --- Triangular


Not very much that I could see to fit this theme in the old archives so I am stretching it a bit. This heron is standing on a triangular rock and there is one in the background too. I need to get taking more photos!

Saturday Photohunt --- Dirty

Ooh.. Dirty... Well that can be looked at several ways, can't it?

There is just plain Dirty as in covered with dirt, or you can have Dirty Money.. or like the Tao Cruz song says, Dirty Pictures.

Well I thought on it some and I got a short messy 'Dirty Blonde' hair do ^_^.

Then I got deressed what some might call a little barefoot and trashy... (But hey! It's my front yard so no dirty looks!)

...and then I got gardening and cleaning and scrubbing.

Now I am still not so so sure about the number of pics allowed, and I admit I am sometimes terrible about making my mind up, especially if picking an outfit to go out in.

So here are three for the price of one 'value' pics.

One of me trying to look, if not dirty, at least cutely grubby, in my garden.

Also a couple of me in my kitchen, before I got myself cleaned up.

Feel free to comment..

...but no dirty ones please ^_^

Saturday Photo Hunt --- Dirty


It's quite a while since I played Photo Hunt. Either I had nothing to suit the topic or else I was away but I was determined to participate again. Miss Moggs has been taking up some of the slack and I see she is taking part again this week too as she has scheduled a post. So we will have two here this week.

One of my favourite belted galloways wallowing in the mud in this wet muddly field at Steveston. The so called "white" belt is always dirty as a result.

This one with the itch, taken on a different day, was especially dirty!
