Thank you for peeking your head in the door over here to say hi. Hope your day is off to a sunny start. I need to get this big ole boot in the shower and get dressed for work but wanted to get this post off first.
Today, I am sharing photos I have taken for the 2 photography challenges I am participating in. There’s the Sunday Stills series hosted by Terri at Second Wind Leisure Perspectives and The Everyday Eye Candy Project 52 with LaShawn at Everyday Eye Candy. Come check out the prompts for this month and my interpretations.
World Through My Lens Week 6
Sunday Stills, 02.03.2019: Fire
Everyday Eyecandy Project 52, Week 6: Nature.
Our poor trees are hopeful that Punxsutawney Phil has it right. And he does. Even though the sky was quite gray when I took this photo, the trees were budding and have since bloomed. And the skies have been sunny and the temperatures warm. Phil had it right. Spring came early.
World Through My Lens Week 7
Sunday Stills, 02.10.2019: Frozen
We remove the hose from the spicket and leave the water dripping on the coldest winter nights. On this particular evening the water dripped down the length of the hose and created tiny icicles hanging from the hose and a icy glaze on the rocks around it.
Everyday Eyecandy Project 52, Week 7: My Love
My Prince Charming (PC-Paul Clingan). Kind of like the way the lines of the afghan on the bed lead toward my PC as well as the folds of the drape he is drawing back.
World Through My Lens Week 8
Sunday Stills, 02.17.2019: Fresh
My girls and I have always laughed about an expression used in El Paso to describe the weather. Native El Pasoans use the word fresh to describe those days when it is sunny but chilly and slightly brisk outside. You’ll ask, ‘how’s the weather?’ and they will answer, ‘it’s fresh.’ I took the picture below from the warmth of our hot tub as the set was setting and a breeze was kicking up out of the west. It was fresh.
Everyday Eyecandy Project 52, Week 8: Winter
Our winter wasn’t. We didn’t really have snow, we didn’t have a lot of terribly cold days or nights. And even when we did, there was almost always that glorious El Paso sunshine. So for this prompt, I pulled out a photograph of a surprise winter storm last March in Kentucky. The most beautiful winter snow in the spring.
World Through My Lens Week 9
Sunday Stills, 02.24.2019: Flight
This was shot over Atlanta, Georgia as our plane made its approach to the airport there. I was flying home to El Paso after a very trying few weeks in Kentucky with my mom. I like the hopefulness of the colors in the sunset as if we were flying out of the darkness rather than toward it.
Everyday Eyecandy Project 52, Week 9: Low Light
These were drinks we enjoyed at the Hotel Indigo indoor-outdoor bar overlooking El Paso. My drink was called a Rising Star, I believe. And had a sprig of rosemary floating atop of chili-rimmed glass. Mmmm.
Our Valentine’s date provided lots of pretty inspiration for picture taking. We stayed at a boutique hotel downtown. The lobby, restaurant and bar were all on the 5th floor of the building, with the guest rooms on floors 6-12. I imagine every window offered a different view. We enjoyed sitting on the patio and looking out over downtown. In this photograph, I like the contrast of the cactus with the man-made beautiful of the buildings.
At PC’s first ball game of the season, a lot of the wives turned out to cheer on the team. Even some children and some pets. This is Annabella and Bailey.
And with that joyfilled photo above, I will take my leave and head to the shower.
Looking over your Feb in photos, what were the highlights or in some cases, the low lights of your month? Wish I could find a widget/gadget for my blog that would enable readers to upload comments with photos! But then again, maybe that could be dangerous if a spammer hijacked the blog!
Make today something special. Smile to a stranger, send someone far away a hug. And know that I am sending smiles and hugs to YOU.
