I’m ending this black and white challenge with an image I took at Alcatraz. When I look at this, I think of all the inmates who spent their lives there and many died there. I thank God that I never made choices that would put me in a place like this. Can you imagine looking out at the city of San Francisco and the Bay and not being able to enjoy it? Namaste’
Day 3 of the black and white challenge … keeping it short and sweet today. Enjoy the roses (and remember to stop and smell them). Namaste’
Having never lived in the Northwest before, I’m not quite used to dodging falling pine cones from our very tall Ponderosa Pines. This little gem came raining down and nearly whacked me on the head. So of course I had to photograph it. I wonder if I could sell these to my friends who live in Arizona. Now excuse me while I search for my umbrella. Namaste’
Thanks to my friend, Bonnie, for giving me this sign. How many of us would like to have maid service??? I know I would. And if I had one, I would make sure that he was treated with the utmost respect. That’s right … no typo … I said “he.”
I would also make sure that he was paid very well. It’s no fun cleaning house, especially someone else’s. And if he didn’t want to wear shoes, like Agador Spartacus in The Birdcage, that wouldn’t be a problem for me at all.
I’ve seen that movie at least four times and I still laugh my butt off at the cast of characters, especially Robin Williams and Nathan Lane practicing the John Wayne walk.
So if you need a good laugh, rent the movie, and if you need a “me” break, give up housework for a while. At least until you can give cutesy little names to the dust bunnies. (I’ve already named a couple of mine … Lucy and Ethyl). Namaste’
This fan was given to my Mom while on a trip with my step-dad to the Panama Canal. I listened attentively as she relayed the different events that took place. Her long-term memory is still pretty good for some things. Love you, Mom! Namaste’
While at the Reid Park Zoo in Tucson, I was trying to catch a good shot of the flamingos but ….
No, I don’t need a model release for this shot … hahaha! Namaste’
On our way back from walking Daisy, hubby discovered a few new things in the front yard. Growing out from under our Lantana plant were some really cool mushrooms. We’ve had some rain lately and these cool fungi decided to sprout up rather quickly. They weren’t there yesterday. Wow! Mother Nature can certainly be persistent. Namaste’

I love horses and wish I had the room to have several (the living, breathing kind). But I don’t, so I’ll just have to settle for this kind for now.
The sculptor of this life-size piece has a gallery in Tubac, AZ, which my daughter and I visited while she was here at Christmas. It’s a wonderful, magical place, full of art of all kinds. I could literally spend days there going from shop to shop.
I call this image Steel Stallion. Namaste’
