Unretouched Flowers from an iPhone

Just walking around, admiring other’s gardening efforts. Capturing the colorful blossoms on my phone. Thinking about tackling my unwanted thistle crop. Appreciating the summer flowers tended by neighbors. 

Begonias on Bryant Street 

My neighbor’s Clematis 

Bleeding hearts.

Airedales and Baby on Easter Walk

Yesterday’s post it was formal portraits. Today it’s candids. Capturing the day with a few casual images.

A sunny Easter afternoon.  We went for a walk around the neighborhood.

Michael and Jack had Airedale duty.  Anna carried Charlie.

When we got back to the house the children hunted for hidden eggs in the backyard.  Some of the eggs opened with a fortune cookie message inside ” A special day with Charlie.” “You pick what’s for supper”  “You pick the family movie”  “One day of no chores” “Two hours of Ipad time”  and some eggs had dollar bills, quarters or dimes.

State of Mind – Weekly Photo Challenge

Ben Huberman of WordPress challenged bloggers to post an image that illustrated their State of mind

We arrived in Philadelphia this afternoon.


Delancey Street cobblestones at dusk. 

Walking where my parents walked when they lived in the city of brotherly love.  1971-1983

  Below the Theater of the Living Arts on South Street.  The scene where my dad pushed his grandson Mark in a stroller and a Philadelphia magazine photographer captured them-

Thirty nine years ago.

This could come in handy during election year. 
 Seeing light on the other side of cascading water in our hotel lobby.  Cloudy, blurred, fluid, relaxing to watch.

Pedestrians closed their umbrellas.

Central Park Snow Scene via Joe in NYC

Here’s today’s guest blog-

This afternoon I received this photo from blog follower Jack.  His son Joe took this  “Central Park- South East corner…there is a small pond that is iced over and covered with snow…it looks really peaceful”

I wrote to Joe (who also follows the blog and he was happy to contribute today’s post- Thanks Joe!)

He gave me permission to share his picture. And thanks Jack for sending Joe’s Central Park Snow Scene.

NYC Transportation

Another gallery from NYC trip over Spring Break.

Remember the 25,000 dollar Pyramid Game Show?  A category is on the card and your partner lists all the things that are in that category.  Things that Have Wheels?  Things that you ride?  Things that help you get around.


Family of Four Walking at Alum Creek Dam

Hard to see them in the first photo.

My daughter -in- law was driving and I was the passenger.  Shot from a moving van.  They are walking above the Alum Creek Reservoir.

Cool Pool and Walk Around the Neighborhood at Sunset

High 80s and no thunderstorms in sight. The pool was practically empty!

We got home for a late supper.  Took a walk/ride around the neighborhood.  You can see glimpses of the setting sun.
