Sunday Stills: Circles

The Sunday Stills challenge this week was circles.


This is the old school turned community center up on the Reservation.   This entire structure is supposed to look like a bird.  The circular auditorium at the left is the body of the bird. The wings of the bird are the classrooms on the other side of the building.


This is the head of the he upside down or right side up?  I always thought of him as being belly up..but I am not an architect.  Circles are a big part of the Native Americans Culture.


Chance found some more circles at the Firehall.


What ever this doohickey has lots of circles:)

Sunday Stills: Green

The Sunday Stills challenge this week is the color green.  I have some green that is highly accented with white.



If we didn’t have Evergreen trees here in Minnesota we would be devoid of green in our winter landscape:)

Sunday Stills: W

This weeks challenge was the letter W.   I chose the old water tower in town.


It is not used anymore..I wonder when they will tear it down.

IMG_0634If you look closely you can still see the word PARK on this side..RAPIDS is around the bend.  It has been in town as long as I can remember.

Sometimes in the sunset colors of a spring in April of 2009..the light makes it look pink.


Interesting!  I thought so just goes to show you how light can show you something different from time to time:)
