Weekly Photo Challenge: Numbers

Every once-in-a-while the Weekly Photo Challenge just gels.  This was one of those weeks.

When I read that the challenge was numbers I acknowledged that I was going to have to go out and attack the challenge head on.  Because I couldn’t think of anything in the archives that fit the theme.  Sure, I could have posted something totally unrelated to numbers and spun you a tail so that you were convinced that it was related (believe me, I was tempted). But, it was 80 degrees here today and I was itching to get out.

And, I thought I knew the perfect place:  a local marina.  Because boats have numbers on them, right?

I started taking photos with the wide angle lens and was getting some okay stuff.  But, I wasn’t jazzed.  Actually, I found myself more taken with the jelly fish swimmin’ round in the water than in the boats.  At some point I realized that I was hearing a whole bunch of chirping and looked up.  Bird houses.  Lots of them.  I had forgotten they had bird houses all over this marina.  And, guess what?  They’re numbered!!  Ding-ding-ding!  We have a winner.

I switched to my zoom lens and split my time between shooting birds (not literally), fishies and jelly fish.

Oh, wait!  Before I get to the official number entry, check this out.  I call it three-two-one. Before I noticed the numbered bird houses this was going to be my interpretation of numbers:

Pretty funny, huh?  They landed one at a time, they took off one at a time.  It works…but, this fits the theme perfectly:

Just goes to show…sometimes you gotta look up.
