Weekly Photo Challenge – Ambience

This photo came up in my alternating wallpaper on this computer and immediately I thought of the photo challenge.  The quiet, peaceful ambience of a street near the Picasso Museum in Barcelona.  In the early morning hours before the hustle and bustle that is surely about to take place.  Enjoy.  Click here to see other entries in this challenge.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Look Up

I haven’t entered the challenge for a while. Summertime is just not conducive for blogging, especially here in the frozen tundra.  But I’m up early and I’m home this weekend and I have several photos to enter for this one! Click on the link to view other entries or to enter yourself and enjoy!!

Weekly Photo Challenge – Landscape

Here’s my entry for this week’s challenge.  Please click on the link to see other entries for the challenge.

This was taken in the last month on the high speed train between Córdoba and Málaga Spain.  There’s a castle on that hill and a small white town behind the hill.  I love the sky and clouds.

Orchid show! and WPC – Vibrant

I don’t always see the annual St. Paul Winter Carnival Orchid Show every year.  But I do try to visit the Marjorie McNeely Conservatory once each winter to get a breath of the tropics and to escape winter even if just for an hour.  It is truly heaven on earth inside the conservatory!  If you’re interested, here are a couple of posts from previous years’ visits:  2015 and 2014. Today’s visit was a bit unusual in that it’s typically bitterly cold outside and cloudy. While I am thoroughly enjoying the sunshine today, it did make it harder to get good photos but I did get a few.

When I saw the theme for this week’s photo challenge I knew exactly what I wanted to enter for it.  Please enjoy my photographic tour of this year’s Orchid Show! Click on each gallery to see larger images.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Gathering

I’m going with my first thought when I saw this week’s theme. In 2010 my mother won the lottery. Yes, it does happen! She decided to spend some of that money to have her family spend Thanksgiving with her in Florida.  Oh, the memories! It was a marvelous time so I’d like to share a gallery of the gathering of my family that year. Click on the link to view other entries or to enter yourself and enjoy!!
