Dream of Tulips

Dream of Tulips, originally uploaded by [PhotoNerd].

Lovely way to composed for these tulips.
And their white color look great with that nice sky !

Tripping the light fantastic

Wow! Such a high quality piece of work. The light is amazing, the colors are fantastic, and all together makes for such a beautiful and interesting scene! I wonder why it has been abandoned? The building still seems alive with the spirits and energy of patrons past! Nice job and thanks for sharing in A Big Fave

If we dance??/ Si nous dansions??

I found this yesterday while looking through the BigFave pool and faved it, but I keep coming back to it for some reason. There's just something about this photo that I find really moving. Perhaps it's the simple, unique composition, the wonderful golden tones, or the mist in the background, but I feel peaceful every time I see it. Nice work!

Thats exactly, what we have here in sothern germany today. Very much fog. The difference is: Tadeu captured it in a very perfect way. I only had to drive through. Nevertheless. It's a pleasure to have such a gifted photographer taking part in our wonderfull group. ABigThankYou for sharing your awesome view!

Beautiful detail of a very interesting plant. This makes me think of some kind of alien life form. I love the tones and the saturation in the green. Fantastic work!

This glorious eagle is dedicated to my Father.
Today he would have been 78 years old.
His favorite animal was the Bald Eagle.
My father was a Korean War Veteran whom was in the
United States Army 7th Calvary E Company.
Only 13 from that company came back home.
So Dad today on your birthday I dedicate this
glorious Eagle looking to the Heavens.
You are gone but not forgotten. Happy Birthday!

Melissa, this is an awesome tribute to hero to the entire free world. My hats off to you!

Test post

Invite Pool Sweepr, originally uploaded by DrewMyers.

This is just a test post to make sure I've done everything right. If you're wondering what that thing is that we use to keep the pool free of uninvited photos, here it is.

Watch this space...

After nearly 7 months of being dormant the Flickr Big Faves blog will soon be coming back to life! We're looking for volunteers who would like to peruse the pool looking for the best of the best to blog here. If you're interested in helping us out please see this thread if you're interested in helping us out.
