Screen Shot

Or shot through the screen.

Early Sunday morning. 

Could be a good one for the What’s Inside? –52 in 2016 Challenge 

Saying goodbye to my daughter and grandson and Penny the golden doodle.

Headed back to the Burgh. 

Temps up to 63,  I noticed on the car thermometer reading. Felt like a Spring day.


Just as we finished the world puzzle –

Uh- oh.  Henry knows I’m not pleased.   The anagrams are under him as well. 

That’s what happens when you take a lunch break. 

Fortunately the world didn’t suffer too much from the weight of an Airedale



Now  a photo a day for a week to capture the present.  As it is, right in the moment. The Weekly Photo Challenge. NOW

Lego building. 


Christmas lights. 

New Jammies. A log on the fire.

Man and his Best Friend Look Right

You could write a caption for this photo. It looks as if I posed them in this stance. We were walking back to our apartment

I asked if it would be okay if I took their photo. Well, in gestures.  The man agreed.

The dog sat so handsomely.

His owner tried to get him to look at me, turn his face. So kind.   I said, no problem, don’t worry, it’s okay.

Not sure what had his attention down the path towards the market but he sat so still, at the ready.

Dog Parking at King Cross

Laura is the one who spotted this parking spot.  We were waiting for a taxi.

She asked, “Did you photograph the Dog Parking? and I said, “HUH?” but there it was. Thanks,  La. Good find.

Seems everyone took their dog right inside the shopping area. Dog ParkingPark your dog at King Cross
