Close-up and Background (WWC)

Dear readers,

It's a lovely crisp day here in the River City. The last two days have been colder than normal, but it is warming up and spring is definitely chasing summer down. We'll be in a swelter before you know it. I'll grin and bear it. Honest I will!

Today it is time for me to share my Weekly Words Challenge (WWC), brought to us by the adorable Tink of Pickled Beef. This weeks words are "Close-up" and "Background".

I didn't have very many photos for this week, but I still put them in a slideshow for the ease of it all... I would like to enter my painting shot (below) as well, because I can say I have a "background" in art. It's not finished yet, I'll share the finished product once done.

On with the slideshow then... and Happy Tuesday Y'all! :)

AJ

You may have posted before me, but I'm the first commenter! Yay! Great pictures. The extreme closeup one cracked me up. I love the raindrops one the most though.

The ethnic background was cool, never thought of it either. And I love the raindrops and the clouds, and the high contrast. Actually, all of them, they were awesome!!!
