****PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE CLICK ON THE DAILY PUPPY!!!!!!****
We have a GREAT thing going here in bloggy land and please join us!! Last week's subject was "Wildlife Around You" and I found this elephant in my backyard. Notice, I have a gate to keep him out, thank goodness!! (And yes Noe Noe Girl it was in the woods behind my house and I wanted to keep it out. I just couldn't face picking up the poo).
This is YOUR personal invitation, shameless begging, or whatever it takes to get you on board with us. Patty @ Crisfield, Maryland and I started with friendly little shoot out to showcase our towns. We love our beautiful towns and we'd like to see yours. Now we have Barry representing Ontario, HalfCrazy representing Manila, GingerV representing Brasil, Papa representing Florida, Butler and/or Bagman representing Charleston, J9, Si, Oz Girl and loads of other's...too many to mention because my brain is fuzzy this morning, lol).
This week's "Friday Shoot-Out" subject was chosen by the beautiful and kindhearted GingerV of Flowers and More in Brasil. She has chosen:
"My Town - The Four". The Four (okay 5 or 6 is fine) main corner's of your town. The traffic, the people, the vendor's, the storefront's, the alley's, maybe even the trash bins. Every town has a Main Street or a First Street, a Maple Street, a Washington Street or a Broad Street. This is by far the easiest and I think one of the most interesting assignments that we've had so far. Even small towns have stores and traffic and people.
Folks that I would love to see join:
Marlene @ Livin on the spit
Don@ Musings and Misc thoughts
The Pink Cowboy
Mildred @ Nalley Valley
Chuck @ Secondary Roads
Girl E Chef
Robyn @ An Alaskan Family
Sugamama (Reigning Miss Cuga 2009)
And YOU, YOU, YOU!!!!!!!!!!!
Mr. Gordon over at Papa and Mema's has so graciously offered to try to keep a list going of participant's and he is doing an awesome job.....YAY Papa (and I still want to go fishing with you and Mema and Scruffy).
So, come on..........JOIN UP. The only rules are that there are no rules. Just follow the assigned subject and shoot away. Post on Friday's and let everyone else have a little look at your hometown. Throw that camera in your car and take a few snapshots. It only takes a few minutes and no one is here to critique your work or your interpretation of the subject matter. We just want to see your town through your eyes and camera. It's like taking a trip for free and having a sight-seeing tour with you as a personal guide.
Okay, no actual "shooting" takes place so no need to call in the ATF. Just a friendly little camera is involved.
What are you waiting for..........start taking pictures and join the fun. The only thing you have to lose is making a few new friends from all over the world.
I swear y'all (for you Si) someone needs to call Ellen or Oprah or some darned body with a little pull. Maybe they'll fly us ALL out for a meet and greet in some big fancy hotel. We'll drink champagne, go to the day spa, have a fancy cocktail party hosted by George Clooney, the Cary Grant of our times. We can all post picture's. (Okay, a girl's gotta have a dream right???).
