Perusing the archives in a different computer.  I know this STREET LIFE challenge could go on and on and on……Will stop now. I really liked it, though.  Guess you can tell.

It’s fun to scan the files for forgotten photos you might not post otherwise.

 

 


Twins Days Festival in Twinsburg Ohio- Guest Blogger Christina

Christina is the mother of twin girls who will be ten in October(along with her husband Dewey-the dad).  The girls are friends with my granddaughter Anna.

Their family has been going to the Twin Days Festival in Twinsburg OH for at least 8 years!  You just have to be a multiple so you’ll see the 3 little pig triplets in her photographs today.  Click on the link to see the dates and info about registering for next year’s Twin Days Festival. Looks like it started in 1995 from what I could see on the website.

Christina captured the event and I invited her to guest blog.  They’ve an aunt who lives nearby and it is an annual event they look forward to every year. This year’s theme was Fairytales.  

See Alex and Isabelle as the Snow White Queens.   Very creative!

The oldest pair was from PITTSBURGH- 98 years old!

Three Dog Ride – Weekly Photo Challenge: Unique

Three Dog Ride

Three Dog Ride in Central Park NYC

WordPress puts out the Weekly Photo Challenge and this week it is UNIQUE.

 I tried to find photos that seemed a tad quirky and not an everyday shot.

Some may be familiar to you if you follow the blog. One of a kind?

Fun to go fishing for some examples for unique.

Some kids watching the Penguins at the Zoo. No relation!

Why I photographed the twisted carrots on this placemat is beyond me……

Classic Cars – Grand Parade- Kick Off St. Raphael’s Bazaar

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

A police car. The Bomb Squad.  A trolley.  About 8 classic cars.  Catch some candy and Mardi Gras beads.  The Boy Scouts marched,  then a Bagpipe and Drum group, the Morningside Cheerleaders.

We had a lot of fun watching the parade in the Morningside neighborhood, not too far from home.

We went to the festival and the man in the information booth was a colleague from the first school I taught in the city -1989.  Small world.  We had a lot of fun and the grandkids loved the spin art and crafts in the Kid Zone.  They loved jumping the bouncy house.

On the way home we drove to Giant Eagle and got ice cream and cones to eat at home. Fresh berries.  Summer!

Scroll down for the slideshow.

 


Weekly Photo Challenge: Movement

Four images.  Fourth of July.  Starting with………….

Fourth of July Parade with Ballerinas just before noon in a sweltering heat, a blazing sun, scorching pavement…..okay, enough descriptors.It was hot hot hot. Or should I say HOT HOT HOT. (sorry, Arrow) Today we were all practically listless.  Laura and James power is back on after five days but Marlene and Donald have been without power for a whole week and hope tomorrow is the day.  So the holiday took a different turn than planned as I wrote before.  The evening was a challenge as I tried to shoot the sparklers with a slow shutter speed.-

-

and for the sparkler portion of the evening.   I sure wish I realized I had brought my tripod in the back of the car.

Found it there today when loading up some groceries.

Laura was on the move with her sparkler

Erika gets her sparkler moving too.

Daddy Mark puts on a sparkler show for the kids as they watch the fireworks over the pine trees.  It was a fun time and a great birthday party.
