Dewy Rose, Ga

Does anyone play checkers anymore?  This re-run blast from the past slows the mind a bit, doesn't it? Try a simple game of checkers over the holidays. It's sure to take the stress out of the season.

A little bit of summer replay for these cold winter days...

“What good is the warmth of summer, without the cold of winter to give it sweetness.” ~  John Steinbeck (from Travels with Charley: In Search of America)

This is not an endorsement for feeding seagulls. At the time, it was a well composed moment I could not pass up. Please, please don't feed seagulls or other wildlife.

“You can look at a picture for a week and never think of it again. You can also look at a picture for a second and think of it all your life.” ~ Joan MirĂ³

A few days ago, I turned on my laptop for the first time in almost a year and found I had some stray photos floating around. This photo, taken on the spur of the moment (I don't do weddings) while on my way to somewhere, caught my attention because one of my followers recently told me it was one of their favorite photos. So since I am doing reruns, at least until Jan 1, I thought this would make a good re-post photo.

Summer Flowers Preserved

I took this photo in August. It is some kind of tropical flower that my neighbor grows in a pot on her porch. As I was leaving her house, the cheery little petals caught my attention and I pulled out my iPhone. Wonderful little gadget, the iPhone. In a perfect light, you get a near perfect photo.

Unfortunately, life seldom offers up great light, as least as far as professional photographers are concerned. But on this day, I had friendship and a perfect light to preserve the moment. I love to find forgotten photos in my iPhone.

The American Dream?

"People are so busy dreaming the American Dream, fantasizing about what they could be or have a right to be, that they're all asleep at the switch. Consequently we are living in the Age of Human Error." ~ Florence King

If you have been here, I don't need to tell you where this is. If you haven't, you don't need to know.
