Weekly Photo Challenge: Horizon

The topic this week? Horizon. For me, that word always makes me think of what’s ahead, what to do next; but, inevitably the pictures that come to mind immediately are the glorious sunsets that we get to see in our “sunshine state” with such frequency, we almost take them for granted.

I love crossing bridges, not sure why; but many times over the last few years as I crossed over the Peace River bridge at the end of a hard work day, I would call our daughter Natalie to boast about the great sunset developing in front of me as I made my way home. I’d say things like “I just had to call to share with you what beautiful sunset and clouds and water, and blah, blah, blah I am looking at right now. Sometimes she’ll come back at me with a smart remark but more often than not we would have a laugh as we made comparisons to the weather she was experiencing at the time; it always seems at least ten degrees cooler in Atlanta.

Of course we will have conversations when the weather turns for the worse in Florida, but in the meantime…our sunsets (and sunrises) are the best!

Beautiful sunset!
Beautiful sunset!

Weekly Photo Challenge: The Hue of You


Not exactly my favorite color, I am a reds and oranges kind of girl. But this green “hue of me” has been following everywhere I go; especially after the abundant share of torrential rainshowers and thunderstorms we’ve experienced this Summer.  Not complaining, I much prefer rain to the usual hurricane warnings but all this lushness have my eyes and nose watering and sneezing like crazy! Can I say seasonal allergies?
Still…I love to see all this greenery around me. This is outside our church as we made our way to the car; you do have to give thanks for the big and little things in life!



Weekly Photo Challenge: Reflections

Weekly Photo Challenge: Close

This week’s photo challenge “Close” has the potential to take on many lives. I’ve missed posting during the last two challenges mostly because I was spending time with our granddaughters; after a day of “toddler chasing” and getting real close to the ground, the last thing I wanted to do was sit to post anything. I thought about it every day, but the energy was not there. Instead, I chose to enjoy every minute possible with the girls, and cherish the closeness.

A family that eats together…stays together? LOL

One of the things I love about SW Florida, I never know what I’ll find outside my door on a given day. This family of White Ibis, made itself quite comfy a few days ago. I love it!

I know there are some worms in there, let’s find them!

It is all about teamwork, together we conquer. Close real close…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Unfocused

Did I capture the super moon tonight? Yes, I think so. But I also got some blurry shots. Still, it was worth the effort for this week’s photo challenge–Unfocused.  http://bit.ly/JbKlUm

Super moon? Really? I have to see that
Clouds in the way. The Super Moon is due to come out on Cinco de Mayo, not today..
Cinco de Mayo Super Moon, still unfocused but seen clearly from my driveway, LOL

Weekly Photo Challenge: Through

The photo challenge for this week, through, provided me with the opportunity to post this picture of my hubby, taken last week while he was pruning the trees in our yard. I was just playing around at the time, but it worked to my advantage. You can see him through the branches…hard at work while I played with the camera. Thanks for the photo opp, honey!

Meanwhile right on the lot next to us these vultures, were watching us. Ugh, what a creepy feeling I got.
