Reminder for “N” stories voting

The Alphabet Challenge “N” Stories are active and the stories have yet to drawn first, second, and third blood (as I write this). You can be the first to vote!

Of course, you have no obligation to do anything . . . but it sure would be swell — if you’ve not already done so — if you would read the stories and cast your vote for your favorite of the three. Links to the stories and the poll for voting for “Alphabet Challenge N-Stories” are HERE.<<<Link

Oh, here are a few photos before you go reading the stories . . .

That’s from the pond at King’s Shops on the Big Island . . . home of our favorite fish and chips (the previous post where I mention them is HERE<<link — the fish and chips, not the fish).

I’m having a bit of fun revisiting old photos and using Topaz Studio I with a few of their plugins to generate these “paintings”.

Sometimes they are goofy . . .

Sometimes they are interesting (or striking) . . .

And sometimes, I don’t know what they are, but I like them . . .

As I mentioned in an earlier post, we’re halfway through The Alphabet Challenge and the gallery where I’ve been uploading these photos now has over 500 offerings (HERE<<<Link). That’s a link to the first photo, and you can scroll through all 500+ photos if you got nothing else to do.

Hence, I decided to create a new gallery for the second half of the Challenge reminders, beginning with these four photos. The new Gallery is HERE<<<Link

I know some (mighty few) people miss my long posts . . . if you are one of the few, the brave, THIS POST<<link from 2016 is for you. 

Or, you could read THIS POST<<link offering me and a speedo, and some of my thoughts on writing.

That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.

    Very colorful and interesting effects on these photos. And your last one has just the right tone to level out the brightness of the previous two. Nice!

    It will take me a few days, but, as always, I want to read all 3 stories, then ponder, then vote. :-)
