2 Things Challenge Hot/Wheels

The 2 Things Challenge this week is Hot/Wheels.

At a Cruise-In (lots of WHEELS) in Columbiana, Alabama in July (HOT) I spotted these restored and revved up (HOT) cars (WHEELS), a Chevy and a Ford both painted almost exactly the same HOT color. I guess the Mustang owner had a little paint left over, so he's working on other Mustangs, including a little Hot Wheels version and some that look like they may be radio control models. Hot!

Grasshopper and Confederate Rose

The plant is a Confederate Rose. It's an interesting plant that blooms in the late summer or early fall. The blooms come out white, and then quickly turn red for one day before they are gone. This one had not bloomed yet when I took the photo, but the leaves were being consumed by this rather large grasshopper. I didn't kill him or run him off because there seemed to be plenty of leaves for him and the plant, but he stayed around for several days. Get a load of those drumsticks! I remember seeing these guys by the hundreds when I was growing up in Georgia, and they are probably still there, but I just don't spend nearly as much time roaming around grassy fields as I did then.

2 Things Challenge Apple/Eye

The 2 Things Challenge this week is Apple/Eye. My step-daughter posed for me for a class I took last year, and I called this photo "Brown Eyed Girl." Since she was holding an apple, and this is one of my favorite photos of her, I thought it appropriate for this challenge.

Two Things Challenge - Road/Arch

Road = Abandoned stretch of the Pennsylvania Turnpike near Breezewood, great place for a hike
Arch = Roof of two mile stretch of tunnel through the mountain, scary black hike except the ends
Others = My stepdaughter, my neice, my grandneice, and their dogs, marching off into the fall foliage a couple of years ago; priceless
