black and white Wednesdays - Memphis

So this past weekend was the tournament in Southaven, MS . . . which is really close to Memphis, TN. 


AND Santa's team won for the FOURTH year in a row.  It was one of the guy's first year to go with them, so he decided to hold up one finger.  LOL!

AND I got to hang out with one of Santa's sisters all weekend.  So much fun!



These are some of the shots on the way through Memphis.


The pyramid.


The Mississippi River bridge.  (headed back to Arkansas)


The required road trip gear. . . . phones charging and drive-through fast food.


Special request from Reese's (and Skittles) a dozen Dunkin' Donuts.  We don't have a Dunkin close to where we live. . . so this is a special treat!


Santa driving . . . with the road in his sunglasses. . . pretty cool.


It sprinkled on us a little after we crossed the bridge, but it was short lived.


Gorgeous sunset.


Captured at 60-65 mph!  Sweet!


And here is the black and white you all have been waiting for. . . 


I got a shot of some boys (I do not know them) fishing in a pond.  There was a sports complex close to the bowling center, and it was kind of random that there were these boys  fishing, so I snapped!




Here are some more great blog hops to join!

PHOTO CONTEST:
Here are the rules:
1. Take a black and white picture (or convert one you have taken to black and white). It should be a picture YOU have taken, since it is a contest, but I am relying on your honesty on this one. And really, how would I know, right? Just don't claim someone else's work as your own.

2. Post about it on your blog. Tell us as much or as little as you want to about the picture.

3. Link up after you post.

4. Please be sure to enter the PERMALINK to your blog POST! (don't just link to your blog address bloggityblog.com. . . go ahead and click on the blog title and get that WHOLE THING and paste it in the URL field. . . it's okay we'll wait.)
5.  Be sure to input the correct email address because if you win this is where we will email your trophy button.

You have from
12:01 a.m. WEDNESDAY morning until 12:01 a.m. FRIDAY morning
(or midnight Tuesday to midnight Thursday – CENTRAL TIME USA)
to enter your photos.
An anonymous judge or judges (not Mrs. Claus) select their favorite on Friday.
Then Mrs. Claus will email you your TROPHY BUTTON! Yup, that's it! A trophy button . . .hey but it's a cool trophy button and it means you WON!
