You know, cell phone cameras are just too much fun these days. I find that it isn't always something I reserve for 'in a pinch' when I don't have any other camera around. No siree. They can make a mundane image look so much more interesting! Particularly if you use one of the free ap downloads-such as this one which is called 'retro camera'. There are about 5 different retro cameras in this on camera ap (short for application).
These are my rain catchers and they capture rain as it comes off of our roof (we have a flat roof). It hardly rains here in NM where we are, so it isn't often that they have water spilling down.
I do miss having rain-I cannot remember when it last rained here. I mean, really rained. We've had some moments where the sky was just 'spitting', but not anything measurable. I love the smell of rain and how it cleans the air.
Back in the '70's when I was in high school (now I'm really dating myself), my girlfriend and I went to see Jose Feliciano in a live concert (this was in Honolulu). One man. One guitar. He captivated us for the entire two hours that he was on stage. So much talent. So much energy. So much presence. And, being the teenage girls that we were, we immediately had a crush on him. We also loved James Taylor, but I don't think he came out to Hawaii to perform. At least, not back then.
Honu means 'sea turtle' in the Hawaiian language. I have a sticker on the back window of my car of a petroglyph honu. Stickers on glass windows make for really nice shadows-so sharp and clear! I love my honu sticker.

Every week, a group of us from around the world post our shadow shots over at Hey Harriet. Entertain your muse and be amused by stopping by to see what others have posted! You can view all of my 2010 Shadow Shot Sunday images on my Flickr account. Click here to view them.
