Picture-A-Week 2024 - Week 23

Recommended Posts

Pictures taken between Monday, June 3 and Sunday, June 9.


It is estimated that 32.9 billion photos will be taken each week in 2024. 


With Spring almost finished springing and Summer just around the corner, take advantage of all the photo-ops and post your share of the 32.9 billion images predicted for June!



Rules: See above

That's it. This isn't a contest.

All photos taken this week are welcome (not just cruising).

Prizes will not be awarded. Discovering the joy of photography is the prize.

The idea is to get folks out using their cameras for more than vacations and toddler birthdays.

Post one. Post many. Up to you.

Have fun with your camera and share your fun with others!

We spent Friday afternoon battling LA traffic, limited parking and surprisingly hot weather to watch Savannah walk the walk at the end of her high school career. Since her sister is four years older, this is the second graduation we have attended in the last few weeks and while we are enormously proud of the Granddaughters and their academic success, we have had enough crowds, speechifying and butt-numbing seating to hold us for a while. While waiting for the ceremony, I did that thing where you look up the student’s name and found a little symbol and an asterisk next to Savanna’s. I found that they meant she earned the Golden State Merit Award and had a weighted GPA of 4.0 or above. I did say “enormously proud”, didn’t I?

Well I was at Disney World for my quarterly vacation again - this time I went with a friend who hadn't been there in 12 years - so the first few days I didn't take any photos as I was busy letting her choose what to do and catching up.  On that Sunday, I finally started snapping a few shots as we walked around - this was not as much of a 'photo-centric' trip as I was there with someone not into photography, and I know I'll be there again in 3 months, so no biggie!...


The heat was intense - 98 degrees plus 80-90% humidity - setting records with heat indexes exceeding 112.  The upside?  Very low crowds - the lowest I've seen in Epcot in 10 full years.  This was the UK pavilion:

That UK shot wasn't a fluke - taking this photo at the Japan pavilion, look down to the left and you can see the main circle around Epcot with sparse crowd (normally, that's packed with humanity)::



We had dinner 220 miles above Earth, at the Space 220 restaurant - dinner started a bit before sunset, so Earth is still day:



By the time dinner ended at 8:45pm, night had fallen below on earth:
