April's A - Z Challenge: My Pictures Beginning with the Letter "B"

Today is the second day of the A - Z Challenge, which is hosted by Arlee Bird.  Several of my blogging friends are participating, and as of this morning, there were over 1,000 participants.  It is easy, but you need to stick with it.  You post everyday, except for Sundays, and work your way through the alphabet.  

Just as importantly, when you sign up to participate, you are agreeing to visit the other bloggers who are in the challenge.  One thing that I really like about this meme is that when others visit, they see your whole blog, not just that post.

The fun part is that you get to choose the way to do it.  Some are choosing words.  I am choosing to post past photos that I have taken, except for the letter itself (I'll be getting those of of Live Search/Bing.)  I am going link up to the posts where the photos originated from too.  I'm liking this idea so much, that I'll keep adding to each letter over time and then use this project as an alphabetical directory for my blog. So, here we go!
