Images & Words Week 110 ~ Such A Fine View

Welcome to Images & Words.

This week the theme I have chosen is:

Such A Fine View.

Have Fun and Don't Forget to Drop You Link into Our Comment Section.

Milli 11




Congratulations to all the finalists in the New Banner Top Ten Poll.

Wayne's fantastic banner and the most popular banner of the ten chosen by Joel, is now our new header photo and profile image.

 Big! Congratulations! to Wayne and also to Randall a very close and worthy second place. Belita's banner did a fine job of holding third position in the poll.

The Rules:

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.


  1. Wow that new banner is fantastic. I have missed so much of Images and Words and still not sure if I really do have the time to participate properly. I do so enjoy this group though. How do you manage to juggle it all Milli, you also take part in a lot of groups?

  2. My choice of photo for this theme was taken from my tour bus seat as we neared Lyttelton Harbour on the South Island of New Zealand. Unfortunately The Lyttelton Port was the centre of the devastating Earth Quake which hit the picturesque city of Christchurch in February this year. I must say that New Zealand has some of the finest views I had ever seen in my life.

  3. Thanks Marianne I guess when you love what you do you just manage. Today was my fifth day of work and here I am typing out my Images and Words for all to enjoy on my Sunday night after dinner because I am that committed to encouraging the joys that it brings to so many. Tomorrow is off time though because we are Celebrating the Queen's Birthday here.

  4. Wayne's banner is awesome... Milli, thanks for your dedication!

  5. Wayne's banner looks great and Milli, your view is indeed fine. I'm of course not biassed that it's a NZ view lol..

  6. Mia you live in one of the prettiest places on the planet.
    The photo was taken many years ago just as Digital photography was coming into vogue. I still remember 'the views' in my minds eye though like it was yesterday.

  7. Wayne's Banner is a gorgeous view in itself. Don't You agree?

  8. Terrific photo and wonderful words, Milli!

    here is mine:

    (just a little thing - isn't this IAW 109?)

  9. I hope that this theme is not causing any problem.
    All that is really needed is a photo which has a view and your Quote, personal or public.

  10. I like this theme Milli. Thanks again for the kind words about my banner.

    Here is mine:

  11. Had a hard time choosing which photo I wanted - so here's my final choice:

    Rockin' Heart Ranch Images & Words Week 110

  12. Congratulations to Wayne! His banner has all the merit to be the winner!
    Glad to know mine ranked 3rd.
    Milli, can't see your view... perhaps later I'll come back just to see it...
    Mine is up... not fine but nice...

  13. It was worth coming back on here.... fantastic shot, Milli! A bit of mystery... I like it!

  16. Milli I just returned home from a rod run,

    I love your theme and really love your
    picture. I will post something tomorrow.
    Got to think????
    Can hardly wait to see everyone's post.

    Congratulations Wayne your banner looks
    great. Love it. Loved all of the banners.

  17. awesome theme..let me see if I have something that fits...

  18. Does anyone out there have the Nikon D-7000. Thinking of upgrading from the old D-50 that is beginning to show it's wear and tear. Also thinking of the Nikkor 18-200 lens to go with it. Any help appreciated. Personal Message me if you have any advice. I take only automatic and programed settings. Also take lots of fast action burst shots.

  19. Milli that is one fine view.
    Had to play this week since you are the hostess.
    You come up with the neatest themes.

  20. Great view Milli and I missed the banner contest I see. My nose has been stuck in work and garden mode. Now about that view....

  21. I think I have seen all the entries so far.

  22. I do hope that can find a little time to join us again soon.

  23. btw milli.. great photo and quote!
