On the Esplanade -- under the bridge, looking up on a concrete wall with fence shadow.

PhotoHunt - 11-28-09: Technology

This is a low-tech door knob mechanism, but impressive in its day (ca.1900).

Martha hosts this meme about color.



Behind the counter at an antiquey junk store - or a junky antique store.


Weekend Reflections 11-27-09

Weekend Reflections hosted by James. I love catching reflections in windows, mirrors, water, raindrops, so this meme called to me.

Windows and Doors 11-25-09


Mary T hosts Window Views.











I've always photographed this mausoleum in the pioneer cemetery from the other side (which I now realize is probably the back side), so I didn't know about this colorful window. Since it's the Macleays' tomb, I suspect it's some sort of Scottish shield -?.

Sepia Scenes 11-25-09


Sepia Scenes is hosted by Mary T, who also hosts the fabulous Ruby Tuesday.







A little bit of everything at Hippo Hardware.

True Colors: Orange

Blue hosts True Colors Thursday. This week's color is ORANGE.


I noticed this tree cutting crew around the corner from our house - hard to miss, really, with all the chainsawing and boom-thud of the pieces landing.


They take it apart, branch by branch, chunk by chunk.


Looks like he's swinging a dance partner, no?


Lots of ropes to keep track of.


Even the chainsaw is orange.

PhotoHunt - Bird/s



This week's PhotoHunt assignment: BIRD(S)

Cedar waxwings are scarcely seen around here. They love the catoneaster berries, so when the berries are on, they grace us with their presence. Notice the bright yellow tail. (These were taken through a filmy window, so not the greatest representation.)
