Sunday Replays: January Photo of the Month

Time to replay January photos featured in my 2012 Photo of the Week series.

January had five Sundays thus five photos for WordPress bloggers and Internet browsers to “like” or send comments to help select my first Photo of the Month. I will continue to post a POW and the POM thoughout 2012, culminating with everyone’s pick for Photo of the Year. I encourage everyone to comment on or rate each photo of the week to ultimately decide my “Best of the Best.”

The January “high five” goes to 2/52 Gwynn’s Island.

5/52 Freeze-Dried Mystery and 4/52 USS Flagship Hotel 😦 tied for second. (I think everyone liked the Flagship post for its sad story rather than my photo.)

And 3/52 Hibiscus beat 1/52 Snake! with a stick!


5/52 Freeze-Dried Mystery

Photo of the Week series: Every Sunday in 2012 I will either share a photo from my archives or something new I just can’t wait to get feedback on for future art shows/exhibits.

I woke early yesterday to about a half inch of snow cover. By mid-morning the sun was thawing the tree that has grown attached to my dusk to dawn light pole. Its glistening branches caught my eye so I snapped a few quick photos before the ice melted. A closer examination revealed several baby pea-size, freeze-dried berries still dangling precariously from the branches; most had split open to scatter their seeds to the ground. I am pretty sure these burnt-orange pods were once bright red. I did not have time to thoroughly search the Internet, so the tree and its possibly forbidden fruit remains a mystery for now.

Blogger participation: My hope is to receive enough input on each week’s photo to later post a Bloggers’ Choice of the Month and wrap up 2012 with a Bloggers’ Choice of the Year.
