Throwback 2013

Throwback to 2013.

Trying to get that photo in the backyard with the grandkids and a puppy. Photographed by my DIL or her Mom.  I can’t remember. I’m holding the baby doll in the second shot, you can see the hair. Six years sure went by fast!

 

Cee’s Black and White Challenge

I’ve followed Cee’s blogposts for tears https://ceenphotography.com/2019/05/16/cbw-hands-feet-or-paws/ Click to see her gallery of Black and White photos with Gsnds or Feet or Paws.

Her photography is excellent- she inspires the blogging community, and compiles links of host challenges created by other bloggers all over the world. When WordPress stopped the Weekly Photo Challenges feature, Cee’s challenges (Oddball, Flower and B & W  to name a few) prompt thousands of posts around the Internet.

Cee’s colorful Flower posts have always cheered me on many a gray winter day.

Cee visits my blog, clicks the like button and leaves a good word for me.

Then on another blog-Lingering Visions– I read the posted photo was prompted by Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge. Hands feet or paws. Both bloggers prompted me to post my Hands, Feet or Paws photo.

This 2016 wedding pic, taken in Austin Texas, (thank you Anna, Aric and Champ) has both hands and paws

What Does a Dog Think About?

What does a dog think about?

Henry and Josie, the Airedales, were in the driveway when I was getting out of my car the other morning. They looked like they were thinking deeply about something.

Here’s Henry contemplating his shadow.

A dog across the street? The weather? Breakfast?

Let the day begin.


Man’s Best Friend and Books

The sculpture of the dog with a stack of books on his head has always caught my attention when I drive by the Millvale Community Library.  Tonight Steve  and I walked down Grant Avenue after dinner to see it up close. What an invitation to come inside and find a good book to read.

The artist is Pittsburgh sculptor James Simon and the sculpted dog’s name is Pages.

And how about those magnificent door handles? I know there’s a story there.

Miilvale. Just across the Allegheny River from the city of Pittsburgh. You’ve seen my posts of Panza Gallery, Grant Avenue Bar, McWalker Yarns, Jean-Marc Chatellier Bakery, Tazza D’Oro, bicycle racks and Esthers’s Hobby Shop  -to name a few.

The Airedales Sense A Trip

And they were correct. a car trip was about to begin.

The only thing is they were not going to be included on the drive from Ohio to Pittsburgh.

They saw the luggage.

They felt the excitement.

The kids were putting on shoes and coats and leaving the house. With suitcases and pillows and backpacks.

It was a trick to get them out of the car so we could be on our way today.
