ABC WEDNESDAY LETTER " A "



Here we ARE  AT the beginning of the ALPHABET  AGAIN.
It's time for some new pictures and thoughts for the letter " A ".

Several weeks AGO we took A day trip which began in the city
of AUBURN, CA.

AUBURN developed AS  A mining town.

This is AN old mining piece of equipment used in " placer " or open
pit and surface excavating.



ALONG the winding road we saw several lakes.

Can you see the cloud that is ALL  ALONE in that blue sky?

We felt AWFULLY  ALONE there too.



In Georgetown we visited A cemetery.

Many of the vintage grave markers looked ABANDONED to us.



I liked the look of this ANCHOR.

It was a prop.

I don't think it would be useful in the water.



Last but not least,
I took some ARTISTIC license with this tiny orchid blossom.

ALWAYS enlarge the photos to see the details.

AMBLE over to the ABC link on my sidebar to see what others
have posted for the letter " A ".

We went on a hike with our daughter, hubby and grandson a few years ago near Auburn -it's beautiful there! So, I had to make a watercolor:) Thanks for reminding me on a beautiful experience!

I love old machinery, so the mining machine is very interesting to me.
