Greetings from Amy and Welcome to week 67 of Images and Words. Our scheduled hostess this week is presently without internet, my heart goes out to Mia because I would go CRAZY without internet, so I'm hostessing because I already have a theme ready to go and then Vic will guest host for me in two weeks. Did you follow all of that? LOL! Anyway...
I have chosen the theme of "Courage", which might be a little too specific for a lot of people so I've decided to add "Motivation and Inspiration" because everyone seemed to enjoy that theme. Plus you can never make too many Motivational/Inspirational posters, can you? Nah, I've made several cuz it's a lot of fun.
Here is my entry:
A few weeks ago we had a lightning caused wild fire near-ish my house, our neighborhood filled with smoke but we weren't in any danger. My son and I decided to go check out the fire, and when we arrived it was just a few plumes of curious smoke but soon the wind kicked up and it became quite dangerous--especially when the wind shifted toward these horses! The owners of the horses tried to evacuate them, but the horses were very scared and ran around wildly before finally allowing their people to lead them to safety. I'm happy to say that all of the horses were rescued, and there were no injuries nor fatalities (except for a few chickens) in this fire. Unfortunately, four homes were destroyed as well as several outbuildings including a garage with a Porsche. I was the only photographer who documented the rescue of the horses so I sent my photos to the local newspaper who put this photo (sans quote) and another one of my photos on their website. If you're interested in seeing my series you can check out my album here.
Each week we will post an original photo with words on it. The idea behind this group is to expand our minds through our photography.
Photos must be your own, but the words can be someone else's as long as credit is given after the words.
Your post can either be serious, or if you'd like comical, but never obscene .
Posts can either have one word on them,quotes, or full poems ... Your choice.
All posts are to be done on your own site in a blog form with a link back to it being left here.
New topics will be posted on Sundays.
Posts can be made through Saturday.
One post per person only please.
