This week the Word Press Weekly Photo Challenge asks us to point our cameras at something familiar and use a unique perspective to turn it into something else. I turned a row of tulips into what looks like a whole planet of tulips by taking a photo of the row of tulips from down low, making it… Continue reading Tulip Earth
Sunday evening we decided to take Smarty for a ride in the car. He’d been for three rides with Don the day before but I don’t think his weekend feels complete unless he gets to go somewhere with his mom and dad. (Yes, we call ourselves Mom and Dad to the dog!) We’d only gone… Continue reading Sunset at Silver Lake
Yesterday, while browsing through my photo archives, I came across this lovely rose that I captured with my iPhone camera last June. Oh, how I miss the flowers of days gone by. It feels like it’s been so long since the world was filled with color. ((((sigh)))) If you’re wondering why I put the rose… Continue reading A Rose of Days Gone By
Unless you go into a city center or one of those claustrophobic neighborhoods with row after row of huge houses on tiny lots, most buildings around here are surrounded by trees. I thought finding photos for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge theme of Buildings and Trees would be easy! But I discovered I don’t have many photos… Continue reading Surrounded
I’ve had a lot of cats in my life but none as odd as Scooby Boo! If there’s something laying around that he can climb on or in, he just can’t resist. One morning a few weeks ago, I heard something rustling around and, when I went out to investigate, I found Scooby in this bag… Continue reading Odd Ball Boo
There are have been several photo challenges that I’ve been excited about, taken pictures for and then totally missed the deadline. Take Dawn’s A Lingering Look at Architecture series over at The Day After. February’s theme was abandoned and I was so excited to get out and look for abandoned houses. I’ve always had a… Continue reading Better Late Than Never – Abandoned
Railroad tracks wind along the western shore of the Puget Sound. Some people might find them ugly and think the coastline is ruined but I happen to love trains, so I’m glad they’re there. Even though I’ve never ridden the Sounder or the Amtrak along this route (well, once as a kid but I… Continue reading Which Way Would You Go?
It may not feel like it where you are, but spring is coming to the northern hemisphere. I saw many signs of it while out on a bike ride yesterday and I stopped to capture a few of those signs with my iPhone, including the magnificent magnolia blossom above. If the winter seems endless where… Continue reading It’s Coming!
Over the past few years, I’ve seen some good photos taken with iPhones. So, when I got one back in July, I was pretty excited. Then, in late October when I got my iPad and bought the Aviary app to edit and enhance photos, I was really excited to start taking, enhancing and sharing my… Continue reading My Marvelous Discovery of the Obvious
