We have FINALLY arrived at the letter " F ".
I call this post

Both the previous (F)oto and this one are about our FAMILY
day trip to the mountain FORESTS and the FRIGID lakes of the
High Country.
Can you see the FUZZY rain drops FAR off in the distance?

Talk about FANTASY and maybe a bit FANATICAL.
We saw this car in a parking lot .
The woman FROM Alaska had done all the beadwork herself.
Can you FIND the FROG hiding on the FRONT of the car?

With all of the FOREST  FIRES happening in California
FIRE engines are an important FACET of life.
That is just a FACT of life where we live.

FLOWERS are beginning to FADE as Summer winds down.
FAIRLY soon it will be FALL.

Last but not least is the Lake Tahoe Dam and over FLOW.
The only name I have ever heard this bridge called is
FANNY Bridge.
Everyone comes and pauses to look over the railing into the water
to see the FISH.
When the Salmon are going back up stream to lay their eggs
the bridge is jammed with "FANNIES" watching the sight.
FASCINATING, isn't it?

FOR more detail don't FORGET to enlarge the pictures.

posts FOR the letter " F ".

The vintage cars caught my eyes the most. Good to see such a great list of pictures that make my day. The games of using letters to match some photos are very clever.

I love that car with the beads such a clever idea and a beautiful design. I'm a little slow, but it did finally dawn on me why the bridge is called Fanny Bridge!

Oh my gosh, that beaded car was fantastic! Really nice pictures all the way around, but I especially liked the fading flower.

Sorry to be so late in my visit! I did not want to miss visiting your blog this week (it was nearly impossible to do from Molokai).
The beadwork on that car is off the charts! Wow!

Hilary said...

Fantastic finds, my friend. Fanny bridge is a hoot.

Wanda said...

Love those pictures, and wish I could add my "fanny" to the bridge photo. That's fanny funny!

So great to spend the day with you today!!!

LC said...

Yes, I found the frog. Amazing car art! Loved the photos especially the fading flower heralding fall. And the fanny bridge made me laugh. Enjoyed the trip through your lens!
