Arrow Photo Challenge #59 ~ 2 Make a Pair {11-15-09}

Hello all! Hope everyone has been enjoying a lovely weekend! This week's challenge is to find things in groupings of 2, or a pair of things. They don't have to be a match but they should be somewhat related and just not 2 completely random objects thrown together.... We did groups of 3 in the past and here's the link to the Power of Three challenge from last year, in case you would like to reference it for ideas. Enjoy your week!

Photo Challenge Rules:
~ Have FUN with this! There are no right or wrong photos.
~ Take as many pics as you want, share the few you like best.
~ Please share only current photos, taken after the challenge was issued.
~ We CANNOT upload our photos to the SCS galleries. You may upload them as an attachment or host them from your blog or any online photo hosting site. Just provide the direct link to the photo in your post and also make sure that it is not from a password protected album.
~ Just a reminder that we are a family-friendly site if you are sending others off this site to view photos in an album hosted elsewhere.
~ Please jump in and join us in the photo challenges at anytime!
~ Again - HAVE FUN!


I almost missed these lil' guys sunning themselves right by our porch steps yesterday. Guess we weren't the only ones excited to get out after almost a week of cloudy, rainy weather.

Can't recall ever seeing two lizards together. Guess all the ones I see are loners like me!

Actually now that you say that, I haven't either! And it's even odder for the time year here in NC to even see one.

We don't even really have lizards here - just some sort of slow-worm thing.
I got lucky on the way to work this morning, apart from only having my little camera because - although I saw how lovely the weather was - my backpack was full of beading stuff.
Two houses - and two trees.
Two painters - and two cones.

This was a fun one. Wish I would have had my better camera for the bird shots though. My two kitties love to hang out in my computer cabinet. They can open the door by themselves and if the gray one is in there and the brown one can't get in, the brown one lays in front of the closed door, blocking gray kitties exit! Cats!!! The two finches love to eat the bird seed I put outside my kitchen window. Can you see the shy one?

Great photos. PJill, I wouldn't know why you would need a better camera, because those shots are amazing!

Got a couple while walking today and the helicopter pair was taken from inside the house through the window. I always go look for these when I hear them coming and there's been at least one fly by a day this week but not doubles, we live in a fly path to the air base.

Angie nice lizards shot.

Great kitty shots and birds too, I really had to look for that second finch.

The cob webs are really a nice photo, great find!

Sabrina I like your cones, there different than ours.

The double rainbow looks very nice and the little guys look like their having fun with the bow and arrow.

Thanks for sharing everyone! I love to come look even when I don't take a photo to share.

Love that double rainbow and the gorgeous light in the photo. A double rainbow crossed my mind as a perfect subject, but we've had rain without sun for the last while.

These are all great pictures, I love to see everyone's perspectives on these challenges.

Here's mine, my two boys on top of a hay maze. I was pleasantly surprised to get this since there were kids everywhere!

This is probably cheating, but this is a pair that my 10yo son took this weekend...I do believe he is getting a camera for Christmas!
