The thing about social media is finding ways for all your different mediums to talk to one another. I’m not always very good at that. I have been doing my #365project #photoaday, but what I haven’t done is taken is taken the time to post it over here.
Here’s my recap of the last few days… and since I know fb won’t bring all my pics over here, please click the link to see what I’ve been up to.
Friday was the dandelion. Since dandelion was the most recent Crayola crayon to retire, I decided to start there. I snapped this mid-morning with my iphone, and when I went back with my camera, it had closed up for the day. If you click to view it larger, you can see these neat little curly petals.
Friday was the white, blanco, blanc crayon, like the spring blossoms on the dogwoods. The trees are blooming right now and we enjoyed a beautiful spring day. The roller coaster weather continues though and we are going to have a few upcoming evenings dropping below freezing.
A box of 24 crayons has a seemingly disproportionate number of blue, especially with them just adding a new blue. Upon first glance I have 4 identical blue crayons; but as soon as you color with them you see the difference is pretty vast.
We had another beautiful spring day on Sunday. Everyone was wearing shorts and out in the park. The sky was a gorgeous blue dotted with perfect white clouds. I love the contrast to the dark trees.
Today is brown. I started the day off with what I thought was going to be today’s color. Box in hand, I drove to and from work, eyes open for something interesting. The color I planned was tossed out the window when I spied something I hadn’t considered.
Germantown, Tennessee is all about their horses. There are horse sculptures all over town, painted an array of colors. I wasn’t expecting to find one that was a nice normal brown.
I warmed up the photo using snapseed. Don’t ask me my settings bc, honestly I have no clue. Filters are not my strength. I just play with them until I get an image and coloring I like.
I liked getting the sky to glow behind him. I also like how the lights from the shop direct your eyes to him.
Here’s to hoping you have a colorful week!
Where I currently live, and will for another 5 weeks, backs up to a gorgeous nature conservancy. I have my own private light show each evening. None are ever the same and each one is magnificent. While I will miss my nightly sighting of another glorious sunset, our new house will bring another peace.
We moved into our current place so Coe and I could go for long daily walks in the park. Slowly, our walks have gotten shorter and she doesn’t enjoy the park the way she used to. In our new place, she won’t have to deal with stairs and she’ll have a doggy door to a fenced back yard. The times they are a changing and we are changing with them.
This is my #365project summary and weekend wrap-up. Coe finally let me get some sleep so I used my energy to sort and pack before I move into a house at the end of March. While sorting I came across high school memories. Some photos are better left in the 80’s! I took some special pleasure in teasing Ginger Kitty, and I found a swirly heart in a tree.
Coe has been feeling a little poor the last few days and Ginger is doing her darndest to help her feel better. Normally when a Ginger tries to curl up, Coe harrumphs and moves away. Today, she’s taking all the love & snuggles available. #365project #photoaday
Since I’m a day behind because of crazy life and crazy pets. Here’s my photo from the day before.
Yesterday was grey with not much reason to get out. When Coe made me get off the couch I made the best of it with looking at raindrops and trees. The fog always provides a beautiful backdrop.

I’ve spent a better part of this rainy day playing with photo apps and photos. When going through photos, and not just today, I am reminded that I am drawn to the same subjects again and again.
The wordpress weekly photo challenge for the week is variations on a theme. With all these similar photos, this seemed a pretty good day to post a collage of some of my recent trees. Trees are not a new obsession; I’ve been taking pictures like this for years. I think my mother may still have one of early trees framed in her house.
I love their structure, texture, lines, and the life they emanate. So often when I look at trees, I see a huge nervous system reaching out for the world. If you’ve ever seen any of the Body World exhibits you may know what I mean.
