"O" x 2 ABSTRACT
“Vowels were something else. He didn't like them and they didn't like him. There were only five of them, but they seemed to be everywhere. Why, you could go through twenty words without bumping into some of the shyer consonants, but it seemed as if you couldn't tiptoe past a syllable without waking up a vowel. Consonants, you know pretty much where you stood, but you could never trust a vowel.” ~ Jerry Spinelli, Maniac Magee
Thanks for your overwhelmingly kind comments on my "Violet Blue Iris" photo yesterday; it ranked #5 for the day.
My photo submission for Judy's (aka fotoeffects) "Alphabet Shapes" Challenge
Big wheels keep on rollin' on the Mother Road - Historic Route 66, that is!!! I know for most of us, the snow has long dissipated, but this is one that I took during the Christmas (2013) holidays and would have posted before now, but when Judy announced the "Alphabet Shapes" challenge, I had it "in the can" specifically for "O" day. I also considered cropping off some of the left side to focus more on the O's, but decided against it. As most of you know, my preference is SOOC photos; however, I've seen (over the years) that many of you have used Topaz Labs to pp your images. So, I downloaded a 30-day trial version and went to work on this one.
