Road Trip

George is busily planning his road trip. He pours over the maps and campground books. At this point in time he plans on taking the motorcycle. This means figuring out how to carefully pack everything he needs for the long haul. They say half the fun is in the planning, and he seems to be enjoying himself thoroughly.

Old gates and Anniversaries

Today's picture comes from a series of shots of an old wall off of Percival St. I used a different one for project 365. I love old rustic things. Wait I am an old rustic thing...
Happy Anniversary Karl and Carey!!!
Love you all- keep well

Day Eighteen's Picture for project 365

It's getting a little harder to keep coming up with a new picture each day. I try to shoot something that I haven't already shot. This is Neal's gorgeous cobalt blue pot. Of course you can't tell it in this photo. It was just way too busy looking in brilliant color so I opted for the duo-tone look instead.

Tucker's Birthday

Need I say more?

The muse is evading my grasp...

Trying to come up with a new photo each day for project 365 has been a challange. Everything I shot seemed to fall flat. Nothing seemed to call to me or jump out. I had resorted to taking pictures of my "bathroom" seashells and I couldn't come up with anything that seemed to work. I then decided to go with a beach sign I saw at work. I posted the picture and then played with the seashells again. It seemed to go easier when the pressure was off. So I post my seashells here. If you click on it you should be able to see the watercolour texture.
Well time to hit the sack so I can start all over again tomorrow.

Funky Little Rocket

Took this down near the waterfront the other day. It sits on top of a little lunch shop. I will need to stop by someday when it's open to sample the goods.
Tucker's Birthday is coming up. I actually remembered and put a card in the mail. My family will be swooning... they will be in total awe that grandma actually remembered a birthday without being prompted. Hmmm. It could be a fluke. Only time will tell.

Wanting Spring to get here

I can't take the gloom any longer. Bearded Dragon helped me by setting out some primroses and daffadils (spelling?) in the planter box on the deck. Ahhh... that does wonders. It seem that once Feb. gets here though, we are off and running and spring has sprung. It will be handy just having the little deck of our apartment to plant. I get to wander around in everyone else's large gardens while I'm working so I will try to be satisfied with my little terrace.

Mount Rainier

Took this while riding down the freeway coming home from Tacoma. George had a hankering to sit on every bmw motorcycle he could find. He did just that at BMW fife... and then some. We ended up in tacoma at the yamaha-honda shop. We were looking for gear for his upcoming sojourn into the Oregon wilderness this June.

Under the weather

What a nasty cold. I'm home, but I'm not playing hooky... which is, according to webster, an unjustified abscence from school or work. I know it's Friday and it might, to the untrained eye look suspicious.
But I really am miserable. really.

Yesterday's Picture

So coming up with a new picture everyday is getting a little challenging. Today I am totally wiped out with this cold thing Had to miss the knitting get together this evening. Anyway it was hard to feel really enthused about much of anything. George came to the rescue and He helped me pick out a subject. I'll post it tomorrow.

Back on Track

I've been a little busy. A little pre-occupied. I've committed to taking a picture a day for the next 365 days and posting each one on "project 365" with the forum. I'm a little picky so it takes me a little while to come up with a new subject each day. I drive around from job to job with my camera beside me to capture the next "great photo". Right now it looks like just me and one other soul are actually following through. We are up to day 11. I want to try and kind of have them look like they go together. If you want to see what I've put up so far there I've posted them in a gallery in my "smug mug" account. There is a link to the right of this posting.

Got out of the house today

Bearded Dragon and I went out to shoot photos and have a bite to eat this afternoon at Tugboat Annies. I had some amazing buffalo wings and he had a salmon burger... yum We then motored over to Bud Bay marina where I kept snapping photos of reflections...
Love the reflections on the water.
