This week, Cee has us on the move with wheels for her Black & White Photo Challenge. Here are a few wheels that we’ve seen during our travels, starting with a tractor at Willow Springs Garden in Wausau, Wisconsin.
Wheels on a canon at the Fort on Mackinac Island, Michigan.
Wooden wheels on display at the Wade House historic site in Greenbush, Wisconsin.
The water wheel at Graue Mill in Oak Brook, Illinois.
A couple of vintage wheels at Bluesmobile Cruise Night in Mount Prospect, Illinois.
And finally some snappy wheels for the bride and groom to make a quick getaway from their reception in Indianapolis, Indiana.

This week, Cee has us looking for signs for her Black & White Photo Challenge. Plenty of signs in the photo files but this first image, taken on Sunday, is the most recent. Neidhammer’s in Indianapolis was the venue for our grandson’s wedding celebrations (more on that in a future post.)
Chicago museums provided two images for this challenge; the first at the Adler Planetarium and the second at the Chicago History Museum.
Plenty of signs along the main street on Mackinac Island in Michigan.
A sign with an important message at the American Lung Association Walk at Hamburger University in Oak Brook, Illinois.

This week, Cheri Lucas Rowlands invites us to cross the bridge when we come to it, for the Weekly Photo Challenge on The Daily Post. There are quite a number of bridge pictures in my photo files taken from many different angles.

I couldn’t resist the opportunity to post these images. I have so many sailing pictures that I haven’t had the chance to use yet. Not that I’ve ever been sailing but I like to watch other people participating. Some of you may be sailing today. If so, stay safe and have a Happy 4th of July!

The current subject for Nancy Merrill’s A Photo A Week Challenge is Boats and Ships. My earliest recollection of boats comes from when I was a small child and we went on a sightseeing trip down the river Thames in London. Since then my water-going experiences have been limited to a ferry-crossing to Mackinac Island, the occasional trip down the Chicago river, a couple of outings with the Des Plaines Yacht Club on Lake Opeka, and one or two other sightseeing excursions on rivers and lakes. I’ve never been on an ocean liner or cruise ship so I don’t know whether sea sickness would be a problem and since I’m never likely to find out, it will forever remain a question unanswered.
