Over the years, I’ve made a conscious effort to look at subjects from many different angles and, when possible, I’ve tried to get at least one shot that included a ‘frame’ so, when Nancy suggested this topic for the Weekly Photo Challenge on The Daily Post, I was ready.
The most recent opportunity came on Mackinac Island when I captured this image of the harbor framed by a doorway at the historic Mackinac Fort.
This archway made a nice frame for a colorful flower bed in the Cottage Garden at Green Bay Botanical Garden.
At Frederik Meijer Sculpture Park in Grand Rapids, this piece of ‘artwork’ seemed to make an appropriate frame for a similar sculpture and the gazebo behind it. If I had to take the shot again, I might do it from a slightly different angle but I think at the time I was trying to incorporate the tree on the left.
This shot is really one from the archives. Taken back in 2006 at the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Temple in Bartlett, just two years after it opened.

If you want to know what it takes to climb Hidden Peak (elevation 11,000ft) at Snowbird in the Wasatch Mountains of Utah, take a look at this picture of some of the legs and feet (and heart) that made it to the top during the Wasatch 100 endurance race last year.
If you recognize yours among these, let me say, “Congratulations!” That was an amazing accomplishment! We took the easy way up, by aerial tram. I consider myself fairly reserved but I couldn’t help cheering as these hardy souls, some walking, some biking, a few even carrying their bikes, made it to the finish line.

Cee’s subject for her Black & White Photo Challenge this week is Any Seating Including Tables & Chairs. I discovered an ornate wrought iron chair in the greenhouse at the Biltmore Estate in North Carolina and thought it would be perfect for this challenge. Not very comfortable to sit on but very pretty to look at.

Michelle’s choice of subject for this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge on The Daily Post is Fun. Here’s a fun little item that I found recently at the Green Bay Botanical Gardens; a colorful windmill with all kinds of bits and bobs attached to it that shone quite brightly in the sun as it slowly changed direction.
