Got a good reason For taking the easy way out





About | Theme: "POINTED" | Roll
Next week "SUPPORT"

Since reading what the prompt was this week, I just came to realize how many pointed things there are in this world of ours. I saw pointed ears, Bud's pointed finger, pointed directional lights flashing on the vehicle ahead of me, pointed steeples, even ocean waves with pointed wake/curl, along with pointed french fries, pointed tree limbs and leaves ON the limbs...well, you name it. I'm going to guarantee that most of the entries today will be as diverse as our options for this theme. Great subject TNChick!!

But, my first thought from the beginning was pointed safety pins. So, naturally that is one of the four I share today. All the images have titled captions with a mouseover.











....and y'all thought I'd add my pointed head, didn't you?

  44. I just stumbled across your blog from PhotoHunt.... and I automatically assumed you where Scottish!!

    I thought your name was a pun on Hootenanny - a scottish term for a dance or a bit of a 'knees-up!'

    I love your spurs photo also - great take on the theme!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Great group of pointed objects. You don't realize just how many pointed things there are until you really think about it. I love how the photohunt makes you look at things in a whole new way.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Great POINT sweetie.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I enjoyed this post, but should be commenting on your 4th of July post. Oh well. I'll comment here. I loved all your cute mugs. They are adorable. We ran into tons of traffic around town too. Apparently the gas prices don't keep people at home. I hope you had a lovely day yesterday and that you are enjoying the holiday weekend. Oh and I like your new template. It's cute. I really like the ladybug running across the screen b/w posts and your customized signature! :)

  48. Hi! The world pool is being televised but it will be on cable somewhere - I don't have cable. :)

    ReplyDelete
  54. Haaaaaaaaa I didn't for as minute think you had a pointed head ... nice post!

    ReplyDelete
  55. Shucks, I thought I was the only one who thought of a "pointed" head for this week's photo LOL -- hope your holiday weekend is going well.

    ReplyDelete
  56. You made the point, lol ! Once I sat on a safety pin but not for long !
    The lake is packed for the week end all Italians are coming from the big cities around for surf. I did some nice pictures again yesterday. The prices in Italy became as expensive as in other European countries and it used to be soooo cheap years ago !!

    ReplyDelete
  57. Great entry Ani your pictures are nice...

    ReplyDelete
  58. Great choices for the theme. I like the crystal clapper of the wind chime. I could imagine how lovely that whole wind chime is. The rest of the photos are wonderful.

    ReplyDelete
