South Congress Sidewalk Scenes -Austin Texas


We were out of the bus.  I stood on a corner, waiting for my friends in the shops.

They’d told us on the bus, Austin is the largest “no-kill city”  in the country.  Here’s an article about how that happened.



Austin is known as Live Music Capital of the World

Wagonful of Grass on Grove Street

Wagon full is Wagonful.        I looked it up.

Grove Street near Bleecker in the West Village, New York City.  I hope they add some eggs. 

How about that wagon?

Giant Golden Ginkgo

Not quite alliteration with the “g” but this is one majestic tree in Highland Park, Pittsburgh PA.

Ginkgo has several spellings and there are male and female trees. The golden fan leaves make it one of  the prettiest trees in autumn.

(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

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


With the ripple. A passerby hit the water.

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

Me: That’s a lot of trash! My Sister: Yes, look up and see where it comes from.

Good point, Mary.
