I wanted to post something fun this morning, and I stumbled upon James’ fine photo of Glenside, Pennsylvania. It turns out this was a challenge to post the fourth photo from my fourth folder and explain it. I had previously posted about these American sycamores on a Skywatch post here. The photo was taken in the depths of January winter, and I love the idea of posting off season photos.
The rules are below:
1. Open the fourth file where you store your photos.
2. Pick the 4th photo.
3 . Explain the photo.
4. Pass challenge onto 4 other bloggers.
Please, anyone who wants to do this please do so, but to give some of my photo blogger friends a poke I’ll pass this on to Ilana-Davita, Jientje, Robin, and Ellie. Do it whenever you are in the mood for something different.

I love the orange of the sky against the black silhouette of the tree. It makes for a striking composition.
Thanks for the tag, I’ll have to go delve into my folders. I wonder which one would be considered the fourth…
I remember your photo. I also like the dark bough set against the lighter sky.
What a lovely and serene photo. I like the pastel tones floating across the sky, and the silhouette of the branches against the tones.
Hi Leora, I really like this photo the contrast between the barren tree and the winter sky is wonderful. Just last night I was thinking about doing a similar photo with a full moon in the sky.
I just need a tripod a full moon and some practice. 😉
Thanks for taking the challenge!
A tripod … that sounds like a nice toy to own!
I’ve sent you an award. http://jewwishes.wordpress.com/2009/09/06/jew-wishes-on-photo-challenge-and-award/
This hisbiscus is stunning. I enjoyed catching up on your posts and photographs. Happy Labor Day Weekend!
I looked – forth folder – forth photo is an old photo from 2004 of Alex sitting on a baby potty 🙂 kind of OK for the family records, but stinky for publishing 🙂
Happy labor day!
It was fun to check the forth folder! Thank you for the experience. That reminded me how lucky I am now that the kids are potty trained!
I looked up the 44th of the 44th (I took a lot of photos this year – all the folder was 2009), so I might post that one next week.
Potty-training is great, but when they don’t need babysitters, that’s even more freeing!
Both kids are off to school now – I celebrated for a week – now a friend asked me to babysit her daughter for a month – since I stay home – so I am at it again!
I hope it feels different if it’s someone’s else’s child?
What an awesome sky seen. I love the colors.
The 4th of the 4th… Hmmm..I will have to try that. I like the stark tree against the pink in the sky
