Think Back Thursday ~ Air/Wind


This theme started off as the most difficult to locate photos for so far...
and turned into soooo much fun.

I start with photos I found while looking for fire photos from last week.
There is fire here but you need air to blow them out,

Look out!!! He's gonna blow!!!!

Next is a science project.
We were studying weather and we also took this to a science and social studies fair.

I don't know if the kids or I misspelled the word anemometer but I can't change that in the photo... it adds to the charm now.

see the anemometer in front of Rachel???

Here are a few links if you are interested in making an anemometer of your own:

Then just the other day we had a big storm. I got some still photos and a video.

Here is a slideshow of the photos I took of the wind.
I used the sports feature on my camera which takes photos in rapid succession.
I hope you can see the movement of the trees, bushes and flowers.
It is a feature of my camera that I don't use often and it is good to get some practice using it.

You can really hear the Wind in my video

Here are the Rules for participating:
The purpose of Think Back Thursday is to link up a photo post about something from the past. You can reach back all the way to your childhood and bravely post pictures of you in your wild clothes and hair styles or post something from last year and tell us about it. I'm not picky. Hey, even yesterday was the past... LOL My posts will mostly be about events that happened prior to blogging, as a way to share those things with the world.
  • It can be about you, about your kids, about your parents, whomever. You can include video, I will not exclude video alone posts, but I prefer them along with photos, as this is a photo meme. I am doing a weekly theme now. That should help narrow it down from the myriad of photos we all have. For ideas check out the other posts in my label Think Back Thursday. 
  • Link up below. Please use a permalink that sends readers directly to the correct post. If you are not sure what that is click the word permalink for an explanation. 
  • Mention my blog and offer a link back. This is a requirement to take part and a kind gesture to me your hostess as well as your readers--they will know where to join in the fun, too. You can put the Think Back Thursday button on your site and in your post. You will find it on my right sidebar. Please use it to link to my site, to spread the word about my meme. Using the button will help others know how to find me and how to join. Tell others to click on the button in your post to find us here.
  • Leave me a comment. First so that you can let me know what you think of my pictures and secondly so that I will know a new post has been linked up and I can come visit your blog and comment on your photos. 
Join me!

Debbie, I love the pics! I can see you are a very happy family. This meme stuff is fascinating to me. :)

Great pictures! You really rose to this week's challenge. Unfortunately, I didn't see any good wind pictures to take this week, and I'm still working without the benefit of having my full photo library at my disposal. I hope to join the fun next week!

Fun birthday candle pictures! Somehow I never got pictures of my kids blowing out the candles. I remember making an anemometer a couple years ago when we studied weather, and the kids really enjoyed it. Yours had a great design!

I *might* schedule Think Back posts for the next two weeks while I'm on vacation. I have an idea for next week's theme so I'll try that one at least. But I won't be able to come link up!
