Hi everyone, this is Mitch and I'll be hosting this week. This week is our 400th theme. I had originally planned to make it a special theme, but unfortunately due to major changes at work which has included me working away from home for some of the time, means I really haven't been able to give it the time I really wanted to. As such it will be just a normal theme. I decided to go with the theme of 'PETS'. Either photos of your own pets you have taken over the years, or if not, then photos of other people's pets is fine!!
1) This is an old pre-digital photo of my Afghan hound 'Saga', curled up in her own special chair. It was an old chair that should have been thrown out years before, but she loved it.
2) Another old pre-digital photo of two other pets I had back in the 80's. On the left is Tara, another Afghan and on the right is Ben, a collie-cross.
3) This is 'Sable'. She's my mom's dog. This was taken when she was about two years old. She's now 8.
4) This is my neighbour's cat having a siesta on the roof of my old car.
Wonderful banner shot by Pat - The Birds, a great movie and a great shot. I am getting ready to go to one of the science rallies, but am happy to put up some pictures and come back sooner or later to comment on yours.
Man using a variety of machines to test the pump system of our pool.
Hello everyone from Switzerland and yes, we had snow this week, but only big mega flakes that melted afterwards. The problem was that we had freezing temperatures to go with it.
And now to this weeks theme. I have to do it on Friday evening as I really do not have time on Saturday morning, or any morning. The theme is machinery. We have probably had it before, but I checked through this year and did not find it.
At the side of the path to our local River Aar there is a machine room dealing with something to do with the river. I am not sure what, but it could be electricity, or a filter work. The gates are usually locked and so are the rooms inside, but I noticed that the door of the machine room had been left opened and so I zoomed in with the camera and took a shot.
We once visited our oldest son at work (Mr. Swiss in the background). This machine has something to do with working on metal.
And our farmers need machines for spraying manure on the fields in Spring.
Many thanks to Isabel for hosting this week, a theme we have never had before. It's a good one that makes you think!! Took me a while to figure out which shots to use and how they related to the theme.
1) 'A River Runs Through It'. 1992 movie directed by Robert Redford.
2) 'The Joshua Tree' 1987 album by U2.
3) 'The Road'. 2009 movie starring Viggo Mortensen.
4) 'Born In The USA' 1984 song by Bruce Springsteen.
