Sunday Stills - Four Points

Read this - it's a pretty cool challenge. Find an interesting or not so interesting place and stand and take pics of the 4 points of the compass. North, South, East and West. The point of this challenge is that we have a tendency to only look in one direction when taking pics. For instance photographing a sunset you rarely look behind you to see the setting sun light up a barn or hillside or beside you to notice the shadows created by the trees or other objects… Have fun... :-)



Anyone who knows me even a little knows I have no sense of direction. If I'm looking at a map, then north is "up". Right? I looked up to see this nest in progress this morning. Now there's a clever use for all the dirty wool ;-).



So, if north is up, than south must be down. I used to hate dandelions in the yard...but now they're growing on me...hee hee. Saint Tim actually likes them because he knows that spring is truly here. I can kinda see that.



Right, um, that's east? One of my favorite bird houses.



And left/west. Still not in full bloom, but getting pretty close. The 85 degrees predicted for today ought to fix that. Ugh.

I love the picture with the bird nest. It could give the "Wool House" a new address.
And, well, the last one, that's not N,S,E,or W, but Center... right where the heart is.
Great perspective ;-)

how lovely!

i really like this challenge and may even try it (unpublished) on my own.

i was also find it that we share the same sense of direction. of COURSE north is up (in front of), south is behind, east is right and west is left! who needs GPS???

have a wonderful week...
