I am amazed that my clump of Poppies are still blooming
their pretty little heads off.
Last weekend we honored our local First Responders at our church..
This 1950's Ford Police car was on display.
Enlarge the photo to get a better look.
Everything about this car was so shiny and bright.
The Policeman who owned the car was so proud to show it to us.
Have a great weekend.

Today's letter is " S ".
I call the SERIES of photos:
SYMBOLS, SIGNS, and SCENES.
SIGNS SAY SO many things.
SPRING has SPRUNG!
Even though this isn't actually New York City,
The STATUE of Liberty is an iconic
SYMBOL for the United STATES of America.
Remember, Enlarging my photos will SHOW more detail.

My dear friend Bev (that I met through our blog posts) called
We got to talking about my trip to Kenya a few years ago.
Bev is now sponsoring a child through Compassion that lives
around the same place we visited and lived for several weeks.
My heart will always be there with these beautiful people.
How I wish we could return and wrap our arms around them again.
I have shown this photo before but I wanted to again.
It shows what sponsoring a child through Compassion can do.
Solomon was sponsors as a little boy and he was able to have an
He graduated from college and now is running a Compassion
School in Namuncha, Kenya.
When I look at this photo taken while we were there,
it makes me think about our own sponsored child Yiamat.
This little girl pictured would be about 3years old.
The girl we sponsor is now 6. She is from the same tribe that we
lived with three years ago.
Makes me wonder......
Here is our precious Yiamat.
Our desire is that she grow strong and healthy
and learn to love the Lord.
Someday we will meet her,
whether it's on this side or the other.
$38.00 a month is money well spent.

The time is RAPIDLY moving along on this session of ABC
We are already at the letter " R ".
REFLECTIONS is the title of the first two photos in my series.
I love the RADIANT colors of the REFLECTIONS
REVEALED in the bottles and Autumn trees.
Sometimes I miss seeing the Ocean everyday.
I miss watching the waves wash in and RECEDE.
REMEMBER to enlarge all of the photos to see the detail more
Hilary of Smitten Image, suggested I REDO this shot in black and white.

All these photos are my take on
This is a project called The Creativity Project which has a
different theme each month.
From Church stained glass windows
To Flamingos "planted" in someone's yard
New York City skyscraper street view
Humanity occupying every square inch of Times Square
"Sitting" and observing the world going by
New and Old
The sidewalks of New York
Drive By photography
Cobblestone streets of New York.
I think it looks like a movie set.
Getting ready to do a concert and then parade down Main Street,
Even the garbage can on the street corner is pretty in it's own way.
Thanks for this challenge Becky of Life with Kaishon.
You can see her fabulous photography by clicking on the Favorites

Every time we come to the letter " Q "
I find myself in a QUANDRY.
What to post?
Well the weather the last few days met the QUALIFICATIONS.
Last evening the sky was QUITE beautiful.
Enlarging the photo will increase the QUALITY of the shot.
The rains came during the night and gave the lawns some much
The night before that, we had a calm and QUIESCENT sky.
Hubby and I drove to good vista point and watched the city lights
make their appearance.
I like this QUOTE by Walt Disney.
"It takes People to Make the Dream a Reality."
Thank goodness the QUILTED Northern Bath Tissue is
The company thinks it is the Sure-footed way to go!

I am POSTING my letter " P " quite early this time.
This week is going to be so POSITIVELY busy.
If I don't POST now it won't get done.
My first PICTURE is my "tongue in cheek" and PROBABLY
the silliest self-PORTRAIT and PORCINE PIGGY bank I have
POSTED in a long time.
Several days ago I POSTED a PICTURE of a green PLANT
on my cinder blocks.
Today we have POPPIES POPPING out all over the bush.
I can see that there are many more to come.
I took this close-up in the intense afternoon sunlight.
Don't you think the colors are PRETTY?
I especially like the drama PRODUCED by the bright sun and shadows.
Don't forget to enlarge the PHOTOS and then PROCEED to the
ABC Wednesday link on my sidebar.
If you would PLEASE be so kind and leave a comment.
I would appreciate it.
