PH: How Low Can You Go?

This week's PhotoHunt theme is LOW and I've selected a variety of uses of that word for all of these photos.

Which card is low? Well, it depends on what game you're playing?




Here are my scales. When I stand on the scales, the number is never LOW enough!!!


There was a full moon this week. By the time I took this photo in the early, early morning, the moon was LOW.

Our part of South Carolina is called the Lowcountry. The Lowcountry is an area of beaches, old homes, magnificent trees, gorgeous flowers and so much more. So, here are a few Lowcountry scenes.





















The walls in my house have Lowcountry scenes as well.



And, speaking of low, here's our South Carolina governor, Mark Sanford, the one who said he was out hiking the Appalachian Trail on Father's Day weekend. Instead of the trail or home with his wife and four sons, he was in Argentina with his mistress - and no one knew how to get in touch with him for 5 days! He neglected his family and our state. How LOW can you go?

Good takes on the theme, Sherry. Love what I got to see of the Low Country on a road trip I took with a friend from Philadelphia down to Beaufort, South Carolina, and back.

As for the scales: I definitely share your feelings about their numbers not being as low as I'd like! ;(

I love those beach photos!


Oh and that governor, ugh! Our president on the other hand had a usd20K dinner at Le Cirque in NY just this week. Now that is a low too, considering millions of our fellowmen are marginalized poor.

Great seloection. A great hand if you are going for a five card trick. As for March Sanford. I would imagine that his political career is in a downturn at teh moment!

Carver said...

Great series! Your low country shots are gorgeous. Sadly, I can relate to the mean scale that never gets as low as it ought (must be broken). Stupid scale. The last shot is particularly clever. I can only imagine his approval ratings are eXceptionally low.

Annie said...

Great collection. Love seeing the photos of the beautiful low country.

Rebecca Ramsey said...

That silly number on the scale is never as low as I'd like!

Somehow you managed to run the gauntlet from the ACE to the JOKER with lots of enjoyment in the middle.

I like what Dana said.
