Light Caught in a Pyrex Bowl

When I sat at the dining room table and looked into the kitchen, I saw the yellow bowl with the light shining through it. Right after I took this picture, the sun disappeared and it was a regular old Pyrex bowl. This is a bowl like the one my mother stirred her whole wheat bread dough, covered with a tea towel, let it rise. Large yellow Pyrex bowl on kitchen table

Through a Neighbor’s Fence

Walking to book club (to discuss The Madonnas of Leningrad), I came across this single blossom which had poked through the slats of my neighbor’s fence. The setting sun illuminated the new green leaves. Unretouched Photo.

Found Rainbow at Dawn

A found rainbow at dawn.

Right on my polka dot sheets. I’ve put away the flannel ones until next winter.

This week’s challenge is your place in the world.

My comfortable bed seemed a good place to start the day, finding my place in the world.

How many textures on Mend Way?

Mend Way. Bloomfield. Right near West Penn Hospital. The one block alley/road between Millvale Avenue and Gross Street. I looked down while walking to my car.

All these textures!

Gravel, bricks, sand, dirt, concrete,dried leaves, my leather boot, cigarette butts and the shadows of the chain link fence.

There are many “Ways” in our city. I looked at the list of Street Names and wondered what determined the definition. Merriam-Webster says “Definition of way. 1 a : a thoroughfare for travel or transportation from place to place. b : an opening for passage.”

Incidental iPhone Shot

After supper, Maura asked to go to the playground. Walking down my driveway, back from playing across the street -I saw the sinking sunlight through this weedy leaf. 

Such bright green. The rays a bonus, shooting into sun. 

The phone so readily available from my pocket. One quick shot. Just like that. 

Capture of the day.  A week of flowers and growing things. Summer at peak!

Winter Sun and Shadow at School

As I arrived, I noticed sunlight.

It’s been pretty gray around here.  Twenty four days until Spring.

Blue Skies and Sunlight Hint Spring

 

 

 

Anyone bored with weather reports? It’s so much lighter for the morning drive to school.

I actually saw a robin in a tree down on East Liberty Boulevard. He was shivering.

I think.

This  tree is in my front yard.

Today it climbed to 48 degrees.                                     I promise a new topic soon.                      Very soon.
Berries on Branch

 

Photographed on Tuesday. I swear I heard bird song.

Michael Shoots into the Sun at Breakfast

 

 

 

Michael Photographing Red Sun

Michael’s Lego man stands in the red light from the sun and he photographs it with my phone.

I got my camera to catch him photographing the scene.

One thing that occurs in the family is the grandchildren try their hand at photography, too. One of Michael’s photos from the iPhone!

 

 

 

Weekly Photo Challenge:Fleeting

Several ideas came to mind but I’m posting a single shot of the fleeting sunlight on the curtain in my living room today.

Under a cloud, the sun shifts –   it’s gone.
