Every week we select a new theme, and then go out and shoot that theme. This week the theme is Things That Start with the Letter "L". As always be as imaginative/creative as you like when interpreting the theme, creativity is what we're looking for.

So show us stuff that starts with the Letter "L"


Here are the rules:
1. Shots need to be taken between Tuesday, after the new theme is posted and the following Monday by sunset (Whenever that is for you). Because this activity is supposed to encourage us to get out and shoot, please don't post old shots from your archives. Snapshots and art are equally welcome -- just get out & shoot, and then share!
2. Post your shots at any time during the week.
3. Post a maximum of two shots if you're uploading them to POTN (i.e., attaching them). You can post more than two if you're linking to shots that are not hosted by POTN (i.e. embedding them) but keep within POTN rules. Also keep within POTN rules about size. A copy of the size rules can be found here: IMAGE POSTING RULES
That's it! Have fun! As always be as imaginative/creative as you like when interpreting the theme, creativity is what we're looking for.
An index to previous weeks can be found here: POTN WORLDWIDE PHOTO WEEK INDEX

That's it!
Have fun!

That's sweet, Renata.

It stopped raining for a while and this is what I got. How to squeeze it into L-something? Could be "Looking up" or "Lunar display" or "Leafless," right?

The bird is a seagull. A small flock was circling for minutes.

Thank you OhLook. Either will do or how about a Lonely Bird or Liquid Amber but I might be wrong.

You're right about the tree, with some differences in orthography: Liquidambar (external link). As for the bird, I don't know. It wasn't necessarily lonely. Some of its friends were near, just not in the frame.

You can make a flu remedy from the seeds, it says here (external link). I've done so with the green pods but wouldn't know how to process the mature hard seeds.

some fairly old canon camera stuff, canon lenses, Manfrotto "thingy", 1D MK II (broken), and an M5, along with a M6 destined for 720nm

I've never heard of that, and California has plenty of Mexican and South American food. What is it? Eggs on ______ ?
