This week’s A Photo A Week Challenge from Nancy Merrill Photography is for the topic:



Here’s my take on it:

“Get to the choppa!”:

Flying over Miami:

Flying first:

Flying over the Keys:

Low-flying Erne:


My songs of the day are:

“Flying” by The Beatles

“Fly Farm Blues” by Jack White

“Flying In A Blue Dream” by Joe Satriani

“Fly Me To The Moon” by Frank Sinatra

“The Flying Wallendas” by Drive-By Truckers

“Learning To Fly” by Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers

“Angel Flying Too Close To The Ground” by Willie Nelson

“I Can Fly” by Lana Del Rey


By the way, Happy Derby Day!, whatever way you may choose to take part:

    • Hahaha! Some people forget that a day at the Derby is a marathon, not a sprint. There’s generally some nudity out there in the infield too. It was a mud pit today. So I’m sure there were some wet tee’s out there. 😃😃

  6. The flying over Miami picture is beautiful. I love that! I want you to fly over my area at night and take a picture for me. Get on that, would you?

    That last Derby picture made me laugh! 😀

    • Hey, no worries! I’ll hop in my Leer and make a spin around. 😃😃
      Yeah, that’s not an uncommon sight in the infield. It was probably about 2:00 when that was taken too. It’s marathon, not a sprint. 😃
