Sweet Shot Tuesday

Spring Break was much too short. I’m already counting the weeks until summer vacation (9! woot!).

So what’d you all think of Hunger Games? Did you also read the books?

no captchasAlso – I don’t love being the messenger on this, but I’ve gotten a few emails and tweets about the number of captchas on at your blogs. When you participate in memes, it’s much more user-friendly to turn off the captchas (or “word verification”) to encourage feedback and comments. People have limited time to enjoy your blog and images. People can visit fewer blogs and are much less likely to comment if you make it difficult and unfriendly. If you don’t know how to turn off word captcha, let me google that for ya. 😉

Can’t wait to see what you’ve been shooting!


  1. I agree, spring break was too short! Haven’t made it to the Hunger Games yet, but can’t wait to see it!

  2. I thought the movie did a good job of getting the spirit of the book for sure. I enjoyed it but there was some specialness missing for me but I still haven’t pinpointed it

  3. I’m glad you mentioned the word verifications, it puts me off commenting as they’re getting more comlicated! Thank you for hosting 🙂

  4. Thanks for posting this again. I’ll mention that you’ll need to check your settings every now and then. I had my word verification turned off for a long time and found out recently that it was on again!?! So I’ve set it back. It’s such a pain to have to go through that to comment.

  5. I really hate those word verifications too!

  6. I agree, thanks for sharing the tip Darcy!

  7. I absolutely agree. I think that when Google made the switch it automatically reverted everyone back to that. I had to go back to the old settings just to find the spot to make sure mine were off still. In the new settings that little option seemed to be left out. Regardless- I wish they would go away- like you said, it limits the time I can spend commenting.

  8. 9 weeks away! I can hardly believe it!

  9. A lovely spring day! My senior mom is out enjoying gardening along with “chatting” with her delightful Red Northern Cardinal, robins, and other sweet birds as she fills their bird feeder and enjoys their spring symphony. Have a bright and beautiful day!

  10. Hmmm…. posted my photo a while ago and it’s still a “frog face”. Did I do something wrong?

    Really enjoying all the photos!! 🙂


    • Not sure why some do that and some don’t… but if you hover over your image, you can see an X. If you want to have a thumbnail you are welcome to delete that one and try again.

      I apologize for the malfunction!

  11. Yep, you are right spring was too short this time. I agree with you. I hate that captcha while commenting so definitely don’t want it on my blog too. Thanks for sharing that remove captcha link. 🙂

  12. Thanks for posting this. I’ve about given up on the photos with those verification codes. Not worth the time, especially the ones you have to do twice!

  13. Thanks for the captcha PSA! Everyone has such great photos – I want to be able to let them know!

  14. Really hate word verification aswell .. especailly when I am using my ipod or phone lol
