Here are my final entries for Becky’s June Squares; the roofs at the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC and the Mormon Temple in Salt Lake City, Utah. Coincidentally we are currently looking at bids on a new roof for our house but I don’t think it will end up looking anything like these. For more on Becky’s June Squares go to An official residence
Today, for Becky’s June Squares, I’ve chosen two unusual conservatory roofs, one at the Domes in Milwaukee and the other at the San Antonio Botanical Gardens in Texas.

This week, Cee is looking for Horizontal Lines for her Fun Foto Challenge and glancing through the photo files I see that we encountered quite a few on our recent trip to Texas. The first image was captured as we went across the bridge over the Mississippi River in Cairo, Illinois.
Waves and ripples in the sand at East Beach in Galveston, Texas.
A view of McGovern Centennial Gardens in Houston, Texas.
A series of steps along the Riverwalk in San Antonio, Texas.

It’s been a while since I came across any doors impressive enough to post on Norm’s Thursday Doors, but this one definitely deserves a mention. The entrance to the church at The Alamo in San Antonio, Texas.

This week’s entry for Becky’s June Squares features some interesting roofs that we discovered while visiting Texas last week.

This week, Cee has given us plenty of scope for the Black & White Photo Challenge with the topic Ground: Sand, Dirt, Grass and Paths. I was particularly drawn to the last on the list so here are a few paths that I have taken. The first two, more formal paths, can be found at the Chicago Botanic Garden.
The paths at Arches National Park in Utah were a little less structured.
And the ones at Alta in Utah were downright rugged!

I thought I’d try something different in the way of photo challenges and this one is from Becky who is looking for photo squares. This month’s topic is roofs so I’m starting out with an image that was captured at The Botanic Gardens in Green Bay, Wisconsin.
