Today is the day I took readers’ requests for my photo subjects.  Unexpectedly, the most of the suggestions I got were also “r” words. After dispensing with the facetious and impractical requests, I had a fun photo scavenger hunt.  As an extra challenge, today was a rainy day and I had to photograph quickly before my camera got wet.

Robin in the rain.  This was not a request but I couldn’t resist the “r” words.

Rascally rabbit.

Pollution. Trash by the Charles River.  The water is probably polluted too.

Rapid tranist.  Bonus “r” – it’s the Red Line!

Blogging A to Z Challenge – Halfway There! #atozchallenge


We are halfway through the Blogging from A to Z Challenge!  Today’s a day off and I’ll resume with a photograph for the letter N tomorrow, but I wanted to take a moment to look forward and look back at the challenge itself.

 

First of all, I’ve decided that for the letter R post that will go up on Friday, April 21st, I will be taking “Requests.”  Please use the comments below or tweet me at @othemts and give me a suggestion for something I should try to photograph for the day.  Keep your suggestion family-friendly and within the bounds of law and I will pick the one I find the most creative.

Second, here are some of my favorite blogs that I’m following for the A to Z Challenge with their themes:
