FAVE 5 ON 5 - 2014 AUGUST



This last month of summer vacation was all about being out and about. We roamed the city, went to a craft fair and took in a baseball game.

Here are my favorites in order:
1. What you find at the craft fair. (above)
2. What you see while waiting at the stop light.
3. I will cut you.
4. In the car, in motion, knew this street was coming up quick and snapped a hopeful shot.
5. Oakland A's for the win! I'd also like to mention that while at this game we, along with the rest of the stadium, did the wave, unprovoked, a total of 4 times in a row. fun!

(Remember to see what the others in the blog circle chose as their five favorites of August by clicking at the link at the bottom of this post.)

THE HOURS - 2014 2:00PM

2:00 found me in the backyard. The berries were about ready to be picked. A bird friend joined me. He came to either keep me company or to keep an eye on what he thought were His berries.

With wine, with poetry, or with virtue, as you chose. But get drunk.”

The Hours - 2014 1:00PM

My 1:00PM submission for The Hours.
Not an average day for us. It was summer vacation and the first time we had been to this beach.
I remember this "bye" girl and how she never left this spot.

it was hard to pick the 1:00 hour.
Below are some of the others I had to choose from.




This hour will always remind me of that Tuesday I spent at the beach.

Wine and rainbows.
Isn't there a song that goes something like that?

FAVE 5 ON 5 - 2014 APRIL

Time for another installment of Fave 5 on 5 where a group of photographers chose their favorite 5 photos from the last month. To continue the circle, and view what others have selected as their favorites, click on the link at the bottom of this post.


Below is a description of each of my photos, in order of appearance. Seems like my eye is drawn to a certain something...I can't quite put my finger on it...

In order:
1. Love (above). A colorful wall with his little legs, how could I resist (especially with that word).
2. Coloring Eggs. An easter tradition carries on.
3. Commute. I love this wall. I'm not sure I had ever been here at this time of day. It was early morning and the light was just coming in over the buildings. I loved the dark shadows and the pop of yellow. I also loved watching this scene unfold over and over again as different characters came in and out.
4. Garden. These roses just bloom and bloom with very little care. I am both lucky and thankful.
5. Bicycle. Out and about and came across this beautiful wall, with a bike. This was one of those, "um, can you guys hold up for just one second?"
