Weekly Photo Challenge: In the Background

Oops.  Between going away for the holiday weekend and my consternation about loyal and regular followers not being able to receive the blog in email, I forgot to do last Friday’s Weekly Photo Challenge: In the Background.   Tomorrow there will be another challenge so this one is in just under the wire


This challenge was just that- a challenge.

(Thanks to everyone who wrote and commented about my ongoing frustration that many friends and followers can’t even subscribe to the email to receive it.  What’s up with that , WordPress?  I have tried to send the link or forward the post and they don’t get it either.  AND from three different types of email- mac, yahoo and a virgin gmail account.)

  1. Ruth – An excellent series of photos. My favorite is the photo of “the horse’s eye,” however I also really like the first photo. Excellent composition.

    On an unrelated subject, I am on Yahoo email, and I have been for almost a decade. I did a search of my email using your email address, and I went back to January 1st. You will no doubt be pleased to know that I have received all of your emails every day since January 1st. No problems.

    I happen to live in Sunnyvale, California, just about 4 miles away from Yahoo’s corporate headquarters, so maybe that’s why my Yahoo email service is so good. 🙂

  3. Nice selection of photos. I’m glad to report that I am receiving all of your great post. Sorry for those who are not. Hope the problem is fixed soon, so others and view your posts.


  4. How many times have I walked past the Flatiron Building! All those shots of Eataly. I cannot wait for its opening here.
    Another great response to the challenge, Ruth. I hope Support can give you a hand with this stuff.
