    As I prepared dinner tonight, this perfect Florida avocado said: green. So here it is.

    I found this growing outside a Montessori School in Dana Point California. Liked it so much I went back with the camera.
    I left the bricks in to give you an idea of its size.

    I've learned that the tradition in Croatia is to grow it on roofs as a lightning strike protection. The tradition originated in the 9th century.

    The English translation of the Croatian name is something like “house guardian” or “house keeper”, and also “lightning grass” (thunder lightning) and other protective names that have something to do with its protective or healing properties. Apparently its one of those plants that can heal a wide variety of health problems.

    The official Latin name is Sempervivum tectorum L.

    (I have to give credit to a person name Myh in Croatia for this information. I posted a picture of it on one of my blogs and Myh recognized it.)

    Me, I just thought it was beautiful!

    I just loved the contrast:


    I liked the hedges and the tree in the middle






    I loved how green it was especially against the white cliffs.

    Nice shots everyone!
    It's sad that not so many members seem to be interested in these threads.

    I'm interested; my computer got hosed...waiting for my new version of Photoshop coming in the mail rather than installing my old version 5 (Web Premium Suite, yay! ...should be arriving today, I think I'll miss the delivery though). I've been taking photos all the while for each challenge.
    They say, "Practice makes perfect," yet they also say, "Nobody's perfect". I don't get it.

    I don't think so. I love the double meaning. Very Creative!

    I've also noticed that it is something about August. Perhaps, at least in the US, it's last minute vacation before school and getting ready for school?

    Last Saturday we went to a restaurant we often go to and there were very few people there.

    That, and also this time of year all things seem to slow down. Look at how many members are on vacation or break right now. It is not surprising really that there are not that many people participating. It'll pick up again

    It is just too nice of an idea to fizzle.

    That's not true.

    Some of us... like myself... a really really interested.

    Just don't have enough extra time to go out and shoot stuff. Especially if you're a free-lancer.

    I intend to get back into these challenge threads, though. I hope SitePoint keeps it up.

    That's my excuse too. Sometimes I post a week or two late. But that's ok. the threads give me ideas of things to shoot which is cool...even if I am late.

    Heres a shot of a leaf illuminated by the sunlight. I really like the harmony of this shot:

    Life

    This is my first entry in the photo comp, so if I am accidently cheating or something then give me a buzz.
