Stina - cool old car. That fawn is adorable, great catch.

Timphoto - that is a great set of photos. The tea garden gate makes me want to go in and see what it's like. At Arturos, the horse water troughs as planters make me smile ;-)a

Don - awesome water capture, you can really see a dancer there. I think turkeys are funny-looking creatures no matter what they're doing.

I'm not sure I should even bother posting mine, I only have two right now, not sure if I'll see something tomorrow or not . I finally got new equipment installed so I have cooling at my house, nice to not be 90+ degrees inside...

After 100+ days, we finally got some rain. Raindrops on my windshield.

The beautiful sunsets we get around here make me smile. 2 image stitch. Here's hoping the monsoon finally starts, so we can get some rain, and maybe some awesome stormy skies for photographing....

Thank you Debbie! The tea garden is in a sunken rock quarry in San Antonio, TX and it very well done. My wife and I considered it better than the Japanese Garden in San Francisco. It's really not Chinese, but was developed and cared for by a Japanese gentleman who was interned at the beginning of WWII, at which point the name on the gateway was changed to Chinese.

This is the view into the garden as you come up to the edge of the quarry.

Glad you finally have A/C. Beautiful sunset and I like the water drop shot.

Wow! Love the walls in the background. I can see the benefits of using an old quarry.

Thanks Tim. I get lucky every now and again. What a great way to re-purpose a quarry.

My last photo for this month, a jazz and blues music store in Morganton, NC. Had hoped for something different but the pixels would not cooperate:

Spotted this big green guy sitting in the shallow water along our local nature trail.

Something old in Atlanta, the Margaret Mitchell house.

A little bit of nature's music, as we are serenaded by a Red-winged Blackbird (also along our local nature trail).

And finally, how could this not make me smile, waking up to these three faces.

Very nice set, Ohio. The frog and the blackbird make me sort of "homesick", even though it's for a place where I haven't lived since I was 5 yrs old. I was born in Wisconsin, and we used to visit for a few weeks in summer. We would try to catch the leopard frogs and green frogs, and the blackbirds would be calling along all the wet ditches and marshy areas. Memories...

I liked your set Ohio. Nice capture on the black bird in mid-note. Your cats look like they each have 'tudes'.

Happy 4th.
