Friday Shoot Out- Things in my town starting with "S"

Friday Shoot Out
Theme
Things that start with
"S"
Of course it was raining and cloudy this shoot out day.
Nothing unusual for this last few weeks.





These are everywhere and more going up each day.



I tried to count all of these in my town.
No way.
There are at least 15 different churches in this town.

Numerous Victorian homes with garrets and spires and steeples.




Statues


Signs

 These road work signs all around town are getting on our nerves.
It will be beautiful when they finally finish.
Silos
In town?
Yes one block from the main drag. But they do have plans to move out away from the main town.




Out a little further but still in the city limits.


Stones to begin things with.
Stones that show and honor the end.


 On this rainy, cloudy day finally found something with
some color.
Around The Town Carriage and
Stagecoach.


Go here for more Friday Shoot Out.

storage: this is what my church needs to storage things donated by Aucklanders to the victims of the quake.

I would love to photograph all those steeples! Something about them reaching upward always draws me in.

I never thought of statues or stones! Loved them all.

Karin said...

Great job - these are very interesting photos!

Ima Weed said...

Great! Doing all the steeples sounds like a great project, too. Get ready for a wet weekend.

Jama said...

Plenty of that Road Work Sign here, there's always something being done on the roads.

DawnTreader said...

Very grey here too. I like the various angles you've used in the photos.

Mollye said...

Interesting composition and the end photo was icing on the cake with the red. Great job. Have a blessed weekend my friend, Mollye

This was fun. I've always had a thing for Silos and barns.
Happy weekend.

Love the last photo. Road signs get on my nerves too. We have way too many in our town.

Nicolle Howard said...

My favorite was the Stagecoach Sign.

Really like the stagecoach sign!

Sara Williams said...

Amazing!

Doreen said...

nice series of SS in your town. we have King Milling here in Lowell with lots of those silos and towers. but they supply a lot of flour.

Bagman and Butler said...

What a lot of good work on a rainy day. I particularly like the way you tilted the frame on the silos -- grabbed my eye.

In the eye of the beholder said...

I think it's great that you did't let the rain stop you! Great job on finding S's.

Pauline said...

Love the angles you got here. Isn't that statue beautiful? Also love the second silos shot, you managed to make them look quite lovely.

Thanks for your kind comments about my dear old dog!
