So, what’s photo worthy today, anyway?

You see lots of bugs on the gas pump- they look like fireflies but with a red chevron..need to identify them later……img_0886

You see the trees reflected in the iPad surface as you sit on the front porch.img_0906


You go get in the car and see a puddle with leaves. Puddle reflections are a favorite thing to capture.


You see the shopping cart corral reflected in a parking lot.


The maple has finally turned yellow in about four days time. The leaves in the garage gutter need to be cleaned out.img_0957

You drive by the neighbors, put the car in reverse and put a blinker on, consider getting out of the car but don’t –

shoot the flaming ivy from the driver’s seat. Later you are filled with regret that you’ve gotten so lazy.



You see a throne-like chair at the mall

for Santa Claus -you think it can’t be

it’s November 3rd.





(Extra)ordinary: Weekly Photo Challenge

(Extra)ordinary  “Things or settings we might overlook at first glance. Whether in a new or familiar place, I try to keep my eyes open — to look for beauty or interestingness where I least expect it.” Cheri Lucas Rowlands

Not an ordinary puddle.

After a week of constant rain, the sun came out just before sunset.


With the ripple. A passerby hit the water.


IMG_2464The water is still.

Did I mention I left my camera in the apartment?  Shot with the iPhone camera.

Sculpture Court Puddle Reflections

With raindrops.


Wet pavement and textured concrete.







Through the museum window









Trying to find attribution to sculpture court artwork is challenging on the CMOA website.


Monday afternoon

We need rain but it’s coming so fast and furious on Tuesday, it’s running off and forming problems on  roadways, causing flooding in some areas.


In context.  Sculpture Court Carnegie Museum of Art.
