A Photo a Day: Snake  River, Idaho

En route to Bozeman, Montana, we’ve just finished dinner in Pocatello, Idaho, which gave me a chance to take a look at the pictures I took today. Our morning started in Elko, NV, where cowboy boots decorated the steps of the courthouse. The road has been long, but relatively free of traffic, except for the…

A Photo a Day: Roadtrip to Montana!

Day #11 Just passed through Reno on our way to Bozeman, Mt.  The moonrise was spectacular and the lights of Reno were perfect for a few drive-by shots. Now, here I am in the car. Husband is driving and I have the full moon over my shoulder. The shots tonight are without any post-editing —…

One Photo A Day: Peace

Day #9 Peace Heed Sunday evenings ~ Peaceful stretch of body, mind ~ Quiet reflection.   I was ready to post this as soon as I got up, but my phone announced the news out of Las Vegas and I am brokenhearted and sick over how broken and sick we are as a country.  May…

A Photo a Day: A Tree Mystery

Day #9 We have a large tree outside that, every day for the past month, looks like it has been through a terrible storm — branches and leaves litter our driveway and fall on our cars. Thing is, we’ve had no storms — or wind, for that matter. Meanwhile, our driveway and our cars are…

A Photo a Day: Finding Autumn on the Ridge

Day #8  Our Friday night choice was either taking in a movie or taking a hike — and after a long, emotional week, hiking our nearby ridge was just what the doctor ordered. The trail was steep and the skies were clear (even if the sunset was not as glorious as I’d hoped for). Autumn…

A Photo a Day: In between cake and song

DAY #7 Don’t have much time to write anything clever or heartfelt or funny this morning.  Busy sometimes takes over.  But as I mentioned in my Day #6 post, it was my daughter’s birthday . . . and so, we had the requisite balloons and flowers and cake.  Mostly, though, I put aside the camera…

A Photo a Day: Playgrounds and heartstrings

DAY #6 Today is my youngest daughter’s 17th birthday and I miss my little girls. They just arent little anymore. One is in college and way too busy to call and the other is a HS senior, getting in all the lasts of everything she can before she heads off to school herself. This letting…

A Photo A Day: MOMA, cityscapes, and a walk back home

Day #1. My challenge of a photo a day started with an easy day.  Who doesn’t take their camera on a trip to the City, let alone a when you’re spending time at a museum?  We had tickets to the Edvard Munch exhibit at MOMA and then took some time to peruse through other galleries….
