For this challenge, Cheri Lucas Rowlands of WordPress, wants us to capture two images – a horizontal and a vertical version – of the same scene or subject. There are no concrete rules, but it should be evident that both shots are of the same place/location or person/thing, and the photographs should ideally have been taken during the same shoot.
My contribution: two versions of a part of the Oskar Hansen’s Hoover Dam Memorial.
And for dessert – as these are both from a horizontal perspective (front and back) so not really suited for this challenge, but who cares after seeing this beauty 😉 – I want to show you two different shots of this classy Old Timer at the Hackberry General Store on Route 66.
for a larger image, please click the photos
Which version of both photos do you like best?

A call for Glass this week, in Ailsa’s travel photo challenge.
I found this beautiful and artistic glass snake in a quiet corner of the memorial park near Dublin Castle.
More glasswork at Where’s my backpack!
we will always remember
the dread we felt that day
disbelief and horror
will never go away
These senseless acts still
strike me numb
after eleven years
And I honor each victim
family and loved one
though they can’t hear
This world is harsh enough
she doesn’t want our
But craves for peace, balance
respect and trust
to set our fears free
In numerology the number 11 represents:
- Higher ideals
Let us keep these words in mind today, eleven years after 9/11, as a token of hope for this day, this year, for the future.
