Rest and Reflection

Bossley the pug,
reflected in the sunlit glass
of our TV stand.
He loves the sunshine.
He loves to be close to us.
He loves snuggly warmth.
He rests well.
A dog's life.

Lights in the camo

Camo net and colorful lights,
a covering for a shelter.
How many faces can you see?

Staple Face

See it?
The staples are amused.
everyday objects
aligning themselves
to smirk at our oblivion.
A moment of stolen attention;
a double take,
a second look,
smirking back,
a twinkly eye,
an upturned lip,
a quiet chuckle.
You got me, staples.
Back at ya.

Harbor Fog

I think I took this picture of the harbor in Monterey in February 2012, or so.
I was standing in a small parking lot near the Junipero Serra statue that overlooks the bay from what is called Lower Presidio.
I think it was about 7:00am.
This is actually a color photograph, but the overcast, the shadows, and the natural colors make it look (almost) like a black and white photo.
I take this beautiful place for granted way too much.

Carroll Mansion

This is the Carroll Mansion, Leavenworth, KS.

Beautiful carved doors at the entrance.

Detail of delightful doggy doorknob.

Just one example of stained glass.

Astonishingly rich woodwork.

Tea room.

Music room.

...and then the battery in my camera died!

This nifty birdhouse
is nestled in a sprawling oak
that I walk past every day
on my way to work.
I missed it for a long time
because it is somewhat hidden
and camouflaged.
But when I finally spotted it
I could not resist snapping a pic.

Taken with my Samsung Galaxy S4 on 29 July 2016.
