The World Through My Eyes

Unless otherwise marked, images were taken at the Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens in Richmond, Virginia. This week’s photo challenge is to share the world as we see it through our eyes. As much as I love writing, my photography has improved tremendously and is a big draw to my blog.  The saying goes that a picture…

Wanderlust Hits Hard

This week’s Six Word Friday uses the word “wander”, which I thought described my life very well as in: Wanderlust hits hard every Friday afternoon. Actually, it doesn’t usually even wait until Friday afternoon.  By Wednesday, I’m plotting where I want to run off too for the weekend.  In a way, it’s a necessity because…

Joy In The Outside

The February Joy Dare earlier this week was to find gifts in three things outside.  Easy peasy, I thought.  And it was.  I found more than three gifts, which made up for the day I couldn’t find three gifts when bent over(!).

For example, this vertically snapped photo shows not only the sweeping lines of the skyscraper, but also a…

Myth Busters Quiz

For a change of pace, we are having a pop quiz to see how many urban myths you can identify as false.  There are three questions here, and a bonus question at the end. Ready?  Here we go! Now that the garden is down, does it still require extensive guarding from danger? Very good!  For the second…

Pale Skies Are Pretty

I love taking pictures of clouds.  I have no idea what I’ll do with them, but I ooh and aah over them to no end.  I’m actually struggling a bit with this right now and have taken off a few days from my photo a day project.  I love my pictures of clouds and flowers,…
