19. Symmetry
20. Words
21. Both Sides Match
22. Hands Full
23. The Early Bird
24. Two by Two
25. Frame Filled

Oh, let’s just say they all work with the prompt with enough manipulation of the English language, shall we?

11134239_10207092122725422_821577066_n19. Symmetry—of a sort. The rule of thirds, at least, on a rainy morning, I grabbed this shot.
11165841_10207056755921274_721559692_n20. Words—I have driven by this hotel sign for 13 years, but today was the day to stop.
11146005_10207065952791190_1980508504_n21. Both Sides Match—another rule of thirds, or the background each side matches! (This copper plant tag says Rosemary, if you look carefully)
11160306_10207049789427116_2014694084_n22. Hands Full-We went to the nursery to look at plants, and couldn’t leave our Egg at home.
11165825_10207092123765448_2006028919_n23. The Early Bird—early morning sunshine through the window in the den.
20150426-IMG_716124. Two by Two—The last of the wisteria season, sad to say.
11160472_10207092124365463_1811785241_n25. Frame Filled—April is challenging in that it’s always WET! So, if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em.

Photo a Day, CY365 W/E 4/18/15

Some photos could go one way or another this week, as far as matching prompts. And #12, well that was taken last week. But I love it so much…

12. ROYGBIV
13. Opposites
14. Blue

15. In The Air
16. Naturally Bright
17. Flashy
18. Collection

10250069_10207020061643940_1513614334054368586_n12. ROYGBIV—Grand Central Station.  I couldn’t resist this shot when I saw the lady wearing a jacket that worked so well with the product!
11116181_10207015608012602_1619143695_n13. Opposites—Knowing WHERE this peaceful scene is, and it’s history, versus it’s look… This is what used to be the worlds largest garbage dump on Staten Island, NY … Now a park…. and this reminds me of the painting Christina’s World.
11091388_10207031841898439_1815508407087507961_n14. Blue, AND in the air! (the YELLOW from the tree is in the air and coating everything)

11141437_10207015607612592_593061767_o16. Naturally Bright—Long after my daffy’s dry up and disappear, this one little bunch of narcissus blooms.
11174772_10207039747816082_7531073518711436496_n17. Flashy—Bright crayon collection …. Reminds me of Aunt Gene, who had a 5 gallon mayo jar full of crayons that my mom and aunts and uncles used when THEY were kids.
11131908_10207004623297991_1559389000_n11160089_10207023777336830_813196164_n18. Collection –of T-Shirts turned into a quilt for my daughters birthday, and a collection of camera gear, on the way out to do some wisteria hunting!

11156891_10207035862118942_1951829079_n  Just waiting for a train to pass. Old, rundown house that just begged for Waterlogue edits.

1655957_10206965811087710_7704231007878776565_n9. Layered— Out on a scouting mission for wisteria the other day,
