ABC WEDNESDAY LETTER " A "



Here we go, off on ANOTHER ADVENTURE through the ALPHABET .
AGAIN
we start with the letter " A ".
Do you see the APPLE Core Leaf?
I thought it quite ARTSY.
Sometimes it pays to look AROUND.



AN ALBINO peacock seemed to be most ACCOMMODATING
AND
posed for me.
I think his looks ARE A cut ABOVE the rest.



AN ABANDONED AUTO was lying in the grass slowly AGING.
I think it ACTS like it belongs in the stark surroundings.
We saw this poor AUTOMOBILE in the Ghost Town called Bodie.



AREN'T these the cutest ALPACAS you ever saw?
They AMBLED over to the railing so I could take their picture.
The one behind remained ALOOF.
I do love its ARTISTIC looking beard or mutton chops. Don't you?
To see what others have ACHIEVED by posting the letter " A ",
I ASK you to just click on the link on my sidebar.
I think they ARE ALL way ABOVE AVERAGE!

I would not have seen the apple core leaf! And the alpacas, they look like punk alpacas!! The old car is, indeed in very bleak surroundings. All I can say to this post is AWESOME.

Hilary said...

Amazing! I did see the apple core immediately. I love that peacock and the old truck below it. Wonderful as always, Sue.

Wanda said...

Just love your choices for this new round.

Yes, I do see that apple core in the leaf...

I still working on my "A" as tomorrow is Theme Tuesday so I wont be posting until late tomorrow night or early Wed morn.

Andy said...

LC said...

And i get to enjoy another round of alphabet pix! The apple core registered before I even read your text. Love the do on the alpaca. Ginny was right on, punk alpacas!

Merisi said...

Sue,
you sure have the most varied selection of original images in the whole blogosphere!

I really was *lol* out loud at the sight of those Apacas, and your choice words let the whole assemble come to life in a way only you know how to!

Big hugs,
Merisi
(and yes, our little Sony Cybershots,
may they rest in peace, they earned it, didn't they?
Funny, how we both now own those little magic Panasonic Lumix cameras, serendipity!)

Oh, you have so many wonderful As, - I was left with the prosaic Apple but spruced it up by telling everyone about the Ambrosia Apple, propogated in the Similkameen, just down the road.

The photo of the abandoned car wreck is my favourite.
It takes a keen eye to see its possibilities.

I have never seen an albino peacock, but surely it must be the most gorgeous bird in existence!
I immediately saw the apple core; in fact, I thought it WAS an APPLE CORE at first glance!
And your alpacas - aren't they corralled in an Aqua fence?

Congrats on POTW!

ethelmaepotter! said...

Whoops! Shoulda said congrats on your recommendation of POTW! Well deserved recommendation!

teresa said...

fun post!

AVCr8teur said...

One of the alpacas look like it is having a bad hair day. I've never seen an albino peacock before. How unusual.

Merisi said...

Dear Sue,
congratulations on being the chosen one among those photographers who had been nominated for the Post of the Week Award. You richly deserve it, you being one of the masters of photography with a point and shoot camera. Your images are proof that a great picture is the work of the photographer behind the camera and not the other way round!

I am amazed how well you get to know your cameras. Few people are as familiar as you with the intricacies of their tools.

Big hug,
Merisi
