Photo Hunt #159: Tree Branches/Bling

IMGP2135
If you were playing skywatch yesterday, this image would be very familiar. It’s one of the same images I used for that meme.

However, with the combination of TREE BRANCHES and BLING as photo hunt themes, I thought I’d use this again.

You see tree branches and “natural” bling courtesy of lights in Berkeley and across the bay in San Francisco.

I hope I’m not stretching the theme of bling too much.

Tree branches is the theme for KEYHOLE PICTURES PHOTO HUNT.
Bling is the theme for WHISTLE STOP PHOTO HUNT.

Watery Wednesday #136: Hello 2012

IMG_0317

I got mixed up with the dates/days and I thought the date/day for WW had passed. Luckily I checked back in the main page for WW and saw that I had been confused. What a way to begin the year – confused!

Let’s dip our toes into a watery 2012!
