From "A" Mountain - 2013-287

Via Flickr:
Here in Tucson, AZ, there is a mountain with a big giant A on it, created and maintained by the University of Arizona community, and locally known as "A" Mountain. The actual name of the mountain is Sentinel Peak. See some info here: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sentinel_Peak_%28Arizona%29

I was on the side of "A" Mountain, in fact just below the "A" when capturing this view of the Santa Catalina Mountains to the north and much of the city below.

This is a 3-image HDR, with further processing in LR5.

Peace for all,
Judi

Being Replaced - 2013-280

Old weekly pill minder fell apart so got a new one. I only take a B-complex supplement, but don't want to miss a day or take it more than once - this weekly minder helps a lot! (It is tough getting older.)

Flowery - 2013-273 (Monday)

Via Flickr:
A photographed processed to look like a drawing then textured and tinted.

All processing done on the iPhone 4S; can't remember which app created the drawing look, textured in Snapseed, color came from yet another app which also eludes my memory! It is tough to get old, but better than the alternative!

Peace to all,
Judi
