Photo Friday: Cold Front

Yup, it arrived.  These are two versions of the same shot.  The first one looks rather ominous, while the second one is almost beautiful. Both seem surreal. If I hadn’t seem it myself, I might not believe it real. What do you think? Check out some terrific photos at Pierced Wonderings.

Photo Friday: A Weed by any other name…

Waning October is a warm respite whispering hello to cold frost and snow.  Still,  These flowers optimistically bloom between cracks at the side of the road.  Yes, most consider them a weed; scraggly, almost leafless stems, hold out lovely blue blooms. I love these hopeful little hanger-onners. I call them cornflowers. What’s in your lens this week?  I’d love to take a peek.

Summer curtsies, Autumn advances. What’s in your lens this week?  Please grab the button below and link-up with me. And another beautiful link-up:

Photo Friday: Febrrrrruary, Pefect for Puzzling

February is a perfect month for puzzling.  Sub-zero weather, lots of snow and wind, and still dark nights keep me in by the fire with hot chocolate in hand.

Baby It’s Cold Outside

Since I live in the Midwest, which means Holiday Time is cold  COLD.  Many places collect “gently used” or new coats for the less fortunate.  This is a great way to help out, and easy too. Just drop the coat in a collection box. Another way to keep people warm is help with electrical or heating bills.  This year I discovered that I can give utility gift certificates.   I like this idea because it ear-marks the money for a specific purpose. Years ago, I received an anonymous gift of cash to help me through the holidays.  As welcomed as the…

Photo Friday: Spring Sunset

I’ve seen a lot of beautiful sunsets: With pink dolphins on the Amazon River, Outlining giraffs in the African Savanna, Echoing summer laughter over Lake Michigan, Calming the surf of the Pacific Ocean, Past the black sand beaches of Costa Rica. None more beautiful than this sunset   Lighting spring toil of the Midwestern Farmland. Photos taken with my iPhone after a Little League baseball game.
