I had a really good idea for this challenge but I must save it for a future post. This photo was taken last September when Summer was “merging” into Fall. Can’t believe we are almost at that door again. Plus, I like how the bridge, in effect, is merging two roads together.
Enjoy your weekend!!
I have mentioned before how disturbing it was to see so many homeless dogs while traveling around the Dominican Republic. It is wrong on so many counts.
I realize it happens everywhere not just in the D.R. However, the frequency of how often I saw these poor strays was truly overwhelming.
Sorry, not too cheerful of a post but what did you expect with a theme called “wrong”? I almost posted a picture of a welt-the-size-of-Texas I got on my upper thigh from a bug* bite/sting on my first day in the Dominican. Now that was wrong!
See you tomorrow!
*no, i don’t know what it was so i dubbed it the ‘damned devil bug’.
On our recent trip to Chicago, I was impressed with the “growth” of grasses on a nearby rooftop–creating a summery, beachy pool area smack dab in the middle of the concrete city. So cool.
As you know, I love irises. But this is my favorite photo of one:
Have a great weekend!
I am not usually a “cat” person. I have never had the desire to have one as a pet. That is until I saw her:
I was in a local thrift shop whose proceeds support an animal shelter. The store also has various cats roaming around that are eligible for adoption. When I saw this petite snow tiger, I wanted her. I couldn’t coax her outside of her fort…she stayed inside. She demurely purred though when I petted her. I could tell she liked me. I even dragged Master Bliss back into the store to take a peek, convinced his heart would melt into a solid “yes, of course we must adopt her”. It didn’t. I still wonder if she has found a good home. Thankfully I know the adoption process is quite involved, designed to weed out the whackadoodles. I know because I asked.
Enjoy your Sunday!
C’est moi…dreaming about jumping in that pool about five days ago.
And did I? You betcha’.
Back in April we traveled to Pennsylvania for a couples’ shower for the Kiddos. I shot some pictures of them dancing…getting a glimpse of dance of life they would shortly be doing together forever. This, I believe, was a salsa:
Also on the trip, we drove the entire time out there in the rain. We always hoped for a break in the weather when it was time to stop to take a “break”. Never happened. This is Master Bliss making a fast break for his “break”.
Both pictures are of fast movements with purpose.
Hope you are having a wonderful weekend.

Belle Fille’s Wedding Day.
I captured the following photos when our photographer had the Father of the Bride come into the dressing area for a first reveal of his only daughter ready to be given in marriage to another:
Definitely one of the sweetest, most heartfelt, fleeting moments I have ever witnessed.
Have a fantabulous weekend everyone!
Master Bliss and I were finishing up a walk the other night when we passed our local, gorgeous Bed and Breakfast. The way the sun was hitting the hydrangeas just made them glow. I said out loud, “That would make a great shot in black and white.” When I got home, I grabbed the camera and my bike and headed back. What do you think?
I tried to capture as many contrasts as I could with the flowers, the iron fencing, the arbor, the gazebo, the pine tree. There is so much to enjoy in this beautifully landscaped yard.
I am so happy it is summer.
…so enjoy another lily.
I do have things to say but they are all jumbled in my mind. I’ll be back…I think. : )
