For more Sky Watch fun go to Tom at Wigger's World It is a lot of fun and there are always some fabulous photos. Even though it has only been very little time since I did my second post of yellow, I am anxious to let the fun begin with sky watch, so I am going ahead and posting. And if you want scroll on down and check out my shots for the Anna's Yellow Project.

ETA: I should have said earlier to click on this photo to enlarge it--it does make a difference.
I took the above photo the other camera was on a tripod and the shutter was open for 25 seconds. and I used my software to get this out of the picture I took.

The pictures below are scanned photos...taken in 1976. I have been a sky watcher for a LONG time. The bottom two especially remind me of that old saying that behind every cloud is a silver lining. Also makes me think of a poem that I can in no way tell you who it is by nor any of the lines other than there is one that says something about behind the clouds is the sun still shining. Okay, I just did a google and came up with this:

Be still, sad heart! and cease repining;
Behind the clouds is the sun still shining;
Thy fate is the common fate of all,
Into each life some rain must fall

-Henry Wadsworth Longfellow,
The Rainy Day, 1841


Project Yellow--I went overboard today on yellow. The three items from my kitchen were pictures taken today and the others were ones in my archives.
This daffodil reminds me of an old lady with a bonnet on!You would not believe my day so's not been good. I have spent the morning getting rid of is nothing but a scam. I have no idea how it got on my computer...I think it could have been worse since I did not click on anything. I immediately thought scam! I closed the first window and went on about my business...I checked my email and basically got ready and left to do some errands. I came home with the thoughts of Anna Carson's Yellow Project and found two or three things to take pictures of, downloaded them, and started having trouble with the computer. I spent a lot time on the net trying to find what all had to be removed. There was no way to send it directly to Norton to scan...but finally Norton picked it up and now it is gone. For good, I hope!

Anyway, the things for Anna's Yellow Project are running a little late, but better late than never. The first three below were things in my kitchen, and the next is a diesel electric generator where my husband works, it is made by Caterpillar.
