My $5 plant bought at a garage sale this spring (thanks CC!) and it's growing like gangbusters! Love those stripes!
As the weather turns cold and rainy, it's time to move inside for photographs which will certainly challenge my creativity - fewer flowers! I've been meaning to take a macro of something other than flowers for a long time in connection with the Mortal Muse challenge - I finally do it and they've moved on to the next challenge of blur. So, this might be a little late, but an interesting exercise none-the-less.
(it's just the tips of the tines of the forks, point down then converted to BW....)
Kat (a blogging buddy) has had a theme of monochromatic for the last couple weeks and I just couldn't come up with a photo op that seemed to fit. Today I created one using bark, peeled Madrona bark and some terra cotta stars I have on my dining table. I think it suits the theme well.
Here I am, entertaining myself while Dan is hosting his first Seattle poker game in 13+ years! I retreat to the bedroom but make sure I have the necessities: a book, a couple of new magazines, my tangle stuff and of course the TV remote.
There were several poles of this parking lot art at the local community center. I was there talking to the manager about teaching some design classes.
They're going to offer a couple of accessorizing classes in the winter quarter and see how they go.
We went to Chelan for the weekend to see T&C and I didn't take a pic before we left. After we got there, we were busy chatting of course, so this was taken right before bed of the casita chandelier. (I was sitting on the ground!)
This will be the scene at my house on Sunday for the foreseeable future. Dan and Adam (or Eric or both) watching a game, flipping to other games and following their fantasy numbers on the laptop! I serve food. :)
We've been having absolutely stunning sunsets the last few nights so decided to go down to Alki in W.Seattle to take photos. The weather was perfect, the sky gorgeous, a great end to a great day. D picked this one as the best cuz he liked the ring around the sun.
I haven't been to my local botanical garden in a while so decided to take advantage of the beautiful sunny weather and go today. Wandered around taking tons of shots then just sat by the waterfall and read my book for a half hour or so. Heaven!
Ron's grandkids at the family picnic today. I don't usually have good luck capturing kids in motion but these 2 never quit, so I had lots of opportunities. :)
The food was yummy, the company fun and for a change, the weather was perfect!
A fun hour or so in Federal Way.
My neighborhood farmer's market and this flower booth caught my eye. Although it shows the idea of the market, it has too many veggies and booth supports, etc. So I eliminated the extraneous.....
Below is the original shot....
