Day 118 - A Walk Around Town

My day didn't go exactly as planned today. First, I promised I wasn't going to eat any chocolate. I had eaten plenty over the weekend. But, it was 8 AM and I had already eaten about 1/4 of a 90 % dark chocolate bar. I reasoned that the caffeine in it is what keeps me awake in the morning and that is loaded with antioxidants. Excuses, excuses....
I still had my pjs on when my daughter called me from school and asked me to bring her a t-shirt she was supposed to bring for a morning activity. I had to change quickly and get out of the house with the t-shirt........and my camera.
Since I am usually taking photos at the wrong time of the day, around noon time, I thought I should try to take some photos when the sun is not so harsh. So, right after going to my daughter's school I went for a walk around the block and it resulted in the picture/s of the day. I had so much to do after I got home from my walk that couldn't do Me Monday.  It will have to happen tomorrow or sometime this week.
I found this sink-turned-planter in a garden right by the road. I thought it was..."different"

I saw this pond behind a very old building. I didn't even know it existed. I liked the water reflections.

Day 111 - Chalk Fun



Day 110 - Another Beautiful Spring Day!


  After mass I took pictures of the pretty trees outside the church.
 I like the sun rays falling on the statue on the first picture above.

Day 109 - Pictures Taken from the Car



Today I drove to the city for some shopping and as I was driving I couldn't get over the beautiful colors all around me. I decided to make my trip fun by taking pictures of the pretty colors while "driving". First I saw a cargo train riding right in the middle of the city. I pulled to the side, grabbed my phone really quickly and was able to get a bit of the train with the pretty tree on the back.  I took the second picture from Wesleyan University while waiting for a green light. Right there thru the windshield I took it. I just cropped all the cars all around it.  Of course I wished they were better quality pictures, but got the picture of the day and had fun while doing it.

Day 103 - A Kid Under a Rock

 

My idea was to photograph him "on" the big flat rock. He had a different idea...:)

Day 91 - Me Monday

I finally got a chance to practice the piano today. It has been neglected a little bit.
