This week's Two Things Challenge is Texture/ Shapes. My top photo is obviously TEXTURE, a shag bark tree common in Birmingham. Isn't it just great? You want to run your hands all over it don't you! SHAPES, well again I am really stretching for this one. The shapes of these crape myrtles at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens formed such a graceful ailee ( yes I know it needs an accent mark but i couldn't find it when I changed to French!) in the late afternoon sun.

100 Stranger Challenge
Several days ago I featured a street portrait that is part of my 100 Strangers Challenge. Some of you expressed an interest in finding out the specifics. I am including Flickr's official site so that you can read all about it. As I stated, I decided I had enough on my plate so opted to just do a personal challenge and not actually join the Flickr group. D.C. Confidential has jumped in and is getting her toes wet with some fine examples. We simply share our latest efforts from time to time. I have been keeping track of mine in a Web Album, and have now added them to my Photography Web Site as well. Let me know if I can help in any way. The more the merrier!
