Look Up

Looking closer at this image I shot at the zoo in Tucson a while back, I see the lesson about life that nature provides if we just pay attention.  “Look up” they seem to say and “give praise to our heavenly Father.”  “Give glory to Mother Earth for sustaining our life here.”  (We as a species need to treat her with more love and respect).

Easter Blessings

It’s been rather busy around the old homestead lately and I’ll spare you the details.  But I’m glad to have a few minutes to wish my readers and their loved ones a very blessed Easter.

I happened to see the light streaming in through the bedroom window and liked what it was doing with the glass flowers.  And, of course, I added some digital enhancements. Consider this my Easter contribution.  Namaste’

Weekly Photo Challenge: From Lines to Patterns

This week’s photo challenge is just what the title says … from lines to patterns.  Almost everything we see around us has some kind of pattern or lines.  That is, if you look closely enough.  Here’s a few that I have taken in the past that I think fit the bill.

Hubby and I are off to a classic car show tomorrow.  I’ll have pictures, of course, when I get back.  Have a wonderful weekend.  Namaste’

Can You See Me If I Can’t See You?

It’s that time of year in the Old Pueblo when the lizards come a-callin’ and this one tried to hide from me but I got the shot anyway.  Daisy usually patrols the perimeter and somehow missed this one (she was probably napping), or she would have chased it down.  He’s hanging on the wall with both of his left legs.  A bit of an acrobat if you ask me 🙂  I wish I could have got his head in the image but I had the feeling if I moved closer, he’d be out of there.

Hope your Monday is a good one.  Namaste’

Weekly Photo Challenge: Curves

Sometimes I participate in the WordPress weekly photo challenge; sometimes I don’t.  But this week was pretty easy.  The subject is curves – not mine – that’s for sure 🙂

The first image is of a downtown parking structure. Made me kind of dizzy just to look at it.  There is no digital enhancement to this photo.  I think I must speak to the city planning commissioner about this 🙂

The next image is also from my archives, of a wall inset that I found one day while walking down the hall where my mom lives. I just thought it would look nice as a pencil sketch.

The final image is one of a life-size stone statue that I found one day in front of a convenience store.  It makes me feel peaceful to look at it so I had it enlarged and framed in my home.  Namaste’

Drink up!

With the heat in the triple digits here in southern Arizona and other parts of the west, it’s time to take a lesson from our canine pals.  Here’s Daisy taking a nice cool drink on a hot day.  I’ve noticed that both dogs are drinking more water even though they don’t spend much time outside these days.  They just go out, do their business and get back in as soon as possible during the heat of the day.  Mornings and evenings are still fairly decent; in the 70’s.

Dehydration is very serious, so we can all take Daisy’s advice during this hot weather … “drink more water, you silly humans!”  Namaste’

Weekly Photo Challenge: The Sign Says

This week’s photo challenge was interesting.  Not hard to find signs everywhere; just hard to find signs that are unique.  So I decided to re-visit some of the ones I took  during my 366 project last year.  Sure brought back some funny memories and what I had to do to get some of these shots.  Hope you’re all having a wonderful weekend.  Namaste’
