Marlene helped me out with these diving trophy photos of the kids. Thanks Mar. We’re all here in Ohio ready to celebrate Maura’s sixth birthday.
Jack is below with a photo holding a game ball as he missed out on the diving awards.
Jack revceived the game ball.

Lots of images came to mind.
Here is my gallery of descent.

How I love being the passenger with a camera in hand. My DIL was driving.

Here is the image I would choose to put on the cover of a book. Because it makes me wonder.
The title of the hypothetical book is

A new weekly photo challenge will come out Friday afternoon. I posted a gallery of light through crystals already but -
Here’s what I noticed on the way to school ( I didn’t get to the Drive-Thru)
I saw the light refracting through the glass pattern onto my coffee and out the other side of the glass.
I don’t think I was looking for refractions last week prior to the challenge.
This one presented itself.
(And yes, you’re right. The pink and orange is a gift card from Dunkin Donuts.)
When the Weekly Photo Challenge is sent out by WordPress on Friday afternoon, I mull it over, dig around in the archives and whittle down a myriad of choices. But on occasion I’ll shoot something specifically for the challenge.
This week it’s REFRACTION by Kevin Conboy so I played around with a crystal heart my parents gave me on the occasion of their 50th wedding anniversary (1939-1989) and a crystal swan and pyramid I have in my china cabinet from them also.
I could’ve used an assistant today to hold the crystal or pyramid.
And because I’ve had my rainbows up recently and the Freedom Tower in NYC with refracted light through the clouds, I’m going with the gallery of my refracted light experiment.
She wrote to me and sent the photo of the sign below.
Thanks for your contribution to the blog today, Tanja.
“My summer vacation I was in Istria, in a small town called Bale and I attended at the Jazz Festival. During the festival, a small cafe near the place where the festival was held, had put the sign in the front of the cafe. The sign was something that I have never seen before so I took a photo. Maybe you will find it interesting too.”
I thought it was a real challenge. (I guess that’s the point of the challenge) Some are easier to find just the right photos in response.
Who knew that I must photograph every sign I encounter?
The trick is to cull the signs and show the most interesting.
BUT I am astounded at how I am attracted to them.
As I kept exporting the variety of signs from different locales, I remembered my travels and who I was with and what we were doing.
Just being out and about I see a ton of signs.
I am going to me more mindful of my capturing them and figuring out why I press the shutter button.
Guess I read them and document what I read.
A sampling of signs-
Chinatown New York City
Greenwich Village NYC
Coney Island NY Sign
Brooklyn Botanic Garden
I was headed home after stopping at East Liberty Farmer’s Market.
Someone is getting the word out in a unique way.
I saw the VOTE yarn bomb sign a few days ago but then today the BIKE sign was covering it up.
Couldn’t the bikers have moved their sign up a bit higher so the yarn bomb wasn’t covered?
I got out of my car and lifted up the BIKE sign to get the picture.
I saw a couple of Yarn Bomb VOTE signs in Bloomfield, too. Today was the deadline to register.
The tag’s website read Pole2Polls.
It certainly caught my attention.
(And the Weekly Photo Challenge is SIGNS)
