that flickr site of mine
http://flickr.com/photos/freestone/
where I have now about 230 photos of the Tallahassee, Florida, area of the usa, has now grown enough so that I can subscribe to several of the "FLICKR GROUPS" and also to create a few groups of my own.

here are three.

"A PLACE TO LIVE FOR"

About A Place to live for
There are places on our planet where if one were to see a photo showing a scene from this place, you would maybe like to move there! At least to visit this area of the world.

"A Place to live for"
---like in that book "1000 Places to See Before You Die", this location might be place number 1001, a place not in this book; a place where you would want to be able to live *longer* so that you might visit, some day!

The type of place where if you saw a photo from this place, you would leap up from the table and call your travel agent!

However...
You may already be living in such a place, lucky or wise-choosing you! All that you might have to do, to take an amazing picture, is to step outside of your front door and take a snapshot in nearly any compass direction and the resulting photo would be of an Inspiration for others to seek out the Wonder and the Mystery of *your* "Heaven on Earth" place!

I live in such a place, even though it is a city of 200,000 people: Tallahassee, Florida, usa.
Lush and green and usually warm all year long.

So please join and submit pictures of your Heaven on Earth, your Place to Live For!

THE PLANT.


About The Plant
Photos where there is one plant, as a focus. There can be many many other species and numbers of other plants, in your photo, but there has to be one plant centered upon.
like:
--one redrose plant prominent, in a picture of 20 roses, many of different colors.
--a landscape but with one tree
Prominent.
--a city scene, but there is a tree or bush that stands out!
--a leaf with a frog on it.
--a flower.
--a vine.
--a garden scene containing maybe 50 kinds of plants, but with One Named
Plant, in the title of the photo.

[I have not really seen a group where single plants are focused upon, I create my own group!]

Please sign up and join. You may submit as many photos as you would like, at once. Almost any outdoor photo will do, as long as there is one plant prominent.

thank you.

GROWING OLD

About growing old
What is it like to grow old?

Many of "us" are the baby boomers, some of us are now 50 to 60 years old. We are getting ever the Older!

I am 64, myself, and I live in an
Independant Living Apartment Home.
There are several people over 90 years old who live there. Thus I, born in 1941, stand between the Great Depression generation, and the baby bommers of the 1947-1964 era. I can see, and live, in each realm!

This group will have photos
of older people, and anything of their surroundings.

Sometimes just an object, like of an empty shuffleboard court, may invoke a feeling of old aging people and their lives.
--older people over 62.
--things that they own.
--the surroundings that "frame" them, even if there are no people in the photo. [Easy for "permissions" that way!]

Please sign up and submit as many photos as you would like.

So this group will be about the people of the 1940s, and before. Maybe we "younger" people can take the Positive values that they have, without the "negative" values, and weave them into our lives, as we get ever the older too!
