Photo Challenge


My good blogging buddy Donna is hosting a photo challenge today and here are my photos for the challenge. I am by no means a photographer and I am always in awe of all of you guys whom I visit who can make something ordinary into something extraordinary with your photography. That is a true gift and one I enjoy seeing. These photos were actually taken a few years ago with my very first digital camera that my son had given me. It was big and bulky but it did take some nice photos. My sweetie and I were coming back from the Cincinnati airport, which is located in Kentucky(that's a whole post for another day). It was about 8am and we always come across the ferry on the Ohio River instead of one of the bridges to get to our neck of the woods. I grew up on the Ohio River and love going across it in this way. The only downside is you sometimes have to wait for the ferry to come back across to get you. As we were waiting we took these photos of the fisherman fishing in the first photo and the ferry going across in the second. There is just something so cool about the fog on the river. We took these photos(and more) and had them blown up and put in black frames with a white mat and they now hang in our kitchen. Hope you enjoy them and thanks Donna for putting this together.

I didn't know there was a ferry! Looks neat!

I hate the traffic on either side of that bridge...nerves me out to no end!
