ABC Wednesday: One post for P and O


I was off last week and missed the letter O. I am catching up with a combined post for this week's P and last week's O. Below is one pigeon which covers two letters with one picture. I took that photograph several years ago at Atlantic Beach, NC.

The rest of the photographs were taken last week in the North Carolina mountains where I enjoyed the great outdoors. The pretty trees had lots of orange leaves.

One shot I took showed a somewhat palatial house. The Moses Cone Manor House may not be a palace but it's not an ordinary primitive mountain retreat either.

For the last photograph, I give you a panoramic view standing at the Manor House fence looking down on the pretty lake.

Wow! You sure made up for last week's post by incorporating it into this week's! Gorgeous photos and I'd love to peek inside that house! Have a great week. :D

What a great idea Carver - to combine two letters so cleverly! Though pigeons are not my favorite bird, yours is actually rather attractive as is that manor house.

One pigeon-now, that's a RARE sight! Usually it is a whole grove of them!
Indeed, what a palatial abode that is. I would hate to be the one to clean it.
Lovely images.

The Pictures are lovely. From the Dove posing so sweetly, right to the end. I especially like the Fall picture of the many colored leaves on the trees. Beautiful.

Mara said...

Now, that is a house I wouldn't mind living in...

Really does convey not only the letter but the description of your blog.. a photographic journey each visit.

That house may NOT be a palace but it sure comes close! :)

Lovely photos. Clever of you to combine letters when you happen to miss one. I'll have to try to remember that!
Love that pigeon. I am very much interested in birds, of all kinds. And I promise you, I don't eat them. It's my mother, Cajsa who usually catches baby birds in the spring. But I never do. Never.
Purrs,

Martha said...

I love the reds and oranges of autumn and what better place to enjoy them than a palace in the mountains?
