Bored one evening, I took this picture. I'm facing out, the image of Tom is a reflection, I don't know what the blue on the right is.

Morning all.Thanks to Mitch for another great theme, and congrats to him also for this weeks header. I love windows so I have taken the theme literally and all my images are real windows in the everyday sense of the word, but I have tried to select unusual shots at the same time, I hope you like my choices. Have a great weekend.

Hi everyone, this is Mitch. I'll be hosting this week.  Before I get to the theme I just wanted to say thanks to everyone for responding so well to my message a couple of weeks ago about commenting. 

My theme this week is 'Windows'. I'll leave it up to you how you interpret it. I've gone for some less-obvious ones, along with a more traditional one.

1) Defender's View. This is how the occupants of Castell Carreg Cennen looked out on the world hundreds of years ago.

2) Abstract Window. A hand-painted window at an exhibition at the National Maritime Museum, Swansea.

3) Nature's Window. I saw this sunlit bush through a hole in the sandstone formation, Valley of Fire, Nevada.

4) Broken Dreams. Taken at the Batsto Industrial Museum, New Jersey.

Picture This #437 ~ Simple

Hi, and welcome to Picture This for this week. I am Benni, your host. Things sure do get complicated in our world, as you will see when you go to Flickr to get the code for your pictures. Things have changed.  Or, it might just be my account. Hopefully. Anyway, rather than burble on, I will announce a theme of "Simple". Simple can really be anything you want, you can decide on what is simple. I hope you'll concentrate on enjoying your photos.

Remember, when you are up and about, I am tucked in my bed and am not able to be commenting until it's noon or later in the UK and Europe. I'm going to try to remember that not everyone posts Saturday morning, or even Saturday. So I'll look out for pictures that are posted Sunday or Monday.
Wonderful banner shot by Heidi; a simple measuring tape looking elegant.

Keeping it simple, here are my shots.

PICTURE THIS #436 ~ MEASUREMENTS

Congratulations, Benni, for this week's banner image. Love the colours and if I had such a sweet in front of me, I would undoubtedly forget its calories. 
Challenging theme chosen by Anders. I like it!


Amarante is a city in the Oporto Region. It is crossed by a river that in Winter it often causes water floods in the lower areas of the city. On the walls of the buildings, we can see plates that mark the dates of the levels reached by the waters. (Cheia is the Portuguese words for water-flood)

Picture This #436 ~ Measurements

Nice sunny day in Florida here. So happy to hear Pat is on the mend, she has been missed. Thanks for putting my dessert as banner shot; it was delicious and I am trying not to gain weight.

This was a challenging theme until I realized I have several shots where I have "measured" things by using other objects for comparison. A form of measurement, I think. Here are a few.

Used my finger to show how tiny this orchid is.

I found this on the beach, turns out to be a fish skull (upside down). A penny shows size.

Many thanks to Anders for hosting this week. An interesting and challenging theme....I really had to think about this one!! Here are my takes:

1) Sundial....for measuring time.

2)  Milepost....for measuring distance in the days before cars.

3)  Shiplog......not sure what this measures....could be speed or distance.

4) Weather Vane....for measuring wind direction.
