My iTunes: Never Going Back to OK by The Afters

Howdy all!

Greetings from no-where-ville, Arizona.

We were spontaneous and decide to head to the Grand Canyon! When I write spontaneous, I mean we were in Mesa Verde and planning to go to the Grand Canyon later in the week and decided to keep driving. No bags packed or anything....just the five of us and a map! Yes, we are having fun but I have not been able to get my picture to load for tonight...it has taken FOREVER! At 1 a.m. eastern time, I finally got it to work through Flickr.

When we were in Mesa Verde today, I was so excited to get a striking blue pic of an amazing blue Harley Davidson. Unfortunately I could not get it off my camera for posting tonight. I will post it soon but I did have this shot from yesterday of a very retro bicycle I passed as we were walking in Durango. I hope you all like it.

Please come back tomorrow for a special look back to Project Yellow and Project Green courtesy of two project participants! Thanks to all of you for your participation in this project! It has been a great time! BTW, the next project will be coming at the beginning of July! Make sure to check back...

Farewell Project Blue!

Have a good day wherever you are in the world!

Darkest blue and lightest blue - an evening sky says good-bye to project blue.

What a great way to end Project Blue. I do love bicycles! So much that I'm dragging myself up tomorrow at 4:30 a.m. to ride mine. I wish mine were that shade of blue though. It is beautiful. And of course I love love love your angle and how you got in tight.. Can you just see me twisting my neck to try to see it?

Thanks so much for hosting this project. I am absolutely loving where these challenges are taking my photography. :)

Raven said...

Beautiful shot. Gorgeous blue. I agree with Robert about the angle and I love the green behind the spokes. Really wonderful photo. Thanks for Project Blue. It's been fun.

Mar said...

Fantastic!! and your projects are fun-tastic, lol
Can't wait for the next assignment :)

Delicious shade of blue :)

Jenty said...

Love the angle, and it's a very clever way to end the project :)
I really enjoyed it, thanks! Blue ended up being easier than I thought it was going to be.

Great project Anna! Looking forward to July to see what is next.

Sounds like you guys are having fun. I will be out there in July again more around the center of the state of Colorado.

I have posed a question at my blog and would like you and the rest of the Project Blue participants opinion on it when you get connected again!

Melli said...

This was a GREAT end! It WAS a great ride - through everyone's blues! And a great ride collecting them too! Thanks for yet another wonderful project Anna!

Ivanhoe said...

Have a great trip to Grand Canyon! That is some place to take pictures of :o)
Cannot wait to hear what's the new project in July.

That bike is a wonderful colour...enjoy the Grand Canyon :)

Gattina said...

The picture is very special !
I have been there where you are right now for the first time in 1971 then again later in the 90th. It is beautiful there.

Have a great time at the Grand Canyon. Take a bunch of Anna shots for us all to enjoy.
Just wanted to thank you for hosting Project Blue. It was fun, challenging and a great opportunity to meet fellow bloggers.

I enjoy your photos any day and the pleasure is just magnified many times over during one of the projects.

So many great photographers to check out!

thanks for another great time

the bike is stunning.

Karen of Sillymonkeez said...

Sounds like you're having a great time. I love the photo of the bike. The blue is so striking.

I'll check back for the photo of the Harley.

Mark said...

Now that I'm at home, where Flickr is not blocked, I can see this great photo. I love this look at a neat old -- and blue! -- bicycle.

Paul Nichols said...

Hey...I was born and raised in Arizona. There's no such place as "No-where-ville," and I know exactly where it is. Hope you're enjoying God's Country.

You can ride that cool Blue Bike all around Arizona for the greatest of times.

I'm not participating in the last couple of Project Blue Takes cuz I've got some important bidness to take care of. But I'll look forward to the next one. It has been fun.

annette said...

Thanks Anna - had a blast with project blue, look forward to next time. enjoy the rest of your vacation. :0)

Carletta said...

Thanks Anna for a wonderful time! Your projects make me stretch myself to look at things in whole new ways and angles.
My last post included a little ode to the "Land of Carson."
Looking forward to the next one!
Hope the rest of your vacation is wonderful. Save travels.

Carletta said...

Oops - SAFE travels!
But then again, save them too - with lots of photos! :)

June said...

A fitting end to your PB. It's been a lot of fun and I look forward to what you will come up with next.

christy said...

Love it... and I finally got a picture for project blue today. I took 552 pictures, 548 of which were in the archives and thus I can't post, and 4 were of a blue motorcycle I passed on the street. I think I'll post it tomorrow anyway... :)

Jeanne Damoff said...

I love the subtle differences in the blues on this bicycle. Even the spokes! And I agree--great angle.

Thanks again for hosting. Your projects are fun and they make me think in new creative ways.

Enjoy the rest of your trip!
