Photo a Day, CY365 W/E 4/18/15

Some photos could go one way or another this week, as far as matching prompts. And #12, well that was taken last week. But I love it so much…

12. ROYGBIV
13. Opposites
14. Blue

15. In The Air
16. Naturally Bright
17. Flashy
18. Collection

10250069_10207020061643940_1513614334054368586_n12. ROYGBIV—Grand Central Station.  I couldn’t resist this shot when I saw the lady wearing a jacket that worked so well with the product!
11116181_10207015608012602_1619143695_n13. Opposites—Knowing WHERE this peaceful scene is, and it’s history, versus it’s look… This is what used to be the worlds largest garbage dump on Staten Island, NY … Now a park…. and this reminds me of the painting Christina’s World.
11091388_10207031841898439_1815508407087507961_n14. Blue, AND in the air! (the YELLOW from the tree is in the air and coating everything)

11141437_10207015607612592_593061767_o16. Naturally Bright—Long after my daffy’s dry up and disappear, this one little bunch of narcissus blooms.
11174772_10207039747816082_7531073518711436496_n17. Flashy—Bright crayon collection …. Reminds me of Aunt Gene, who had a 5 gallon mayo jar full of crayons that my mom and aunts and uncles used when THEY were kids.
11131908_10207004623297991_1559389000_n11160089_10207023777336830_813196164_n18. Collection –of T-Shirts turned into a quilt for my daughters birthday, and a collection of camera gear, on the way out to do some wisteria hunting!

11148896_10206989643243499_552886342_n8. “Cheers! Slainte Mhath!” Or, as Graham McTavish is screaming, “Tulach Ard!”11131741_10206987072019220_1493715947_n
1655957_10206965811087710_7704231007878776565_n9. Layered— Out on a scouting mission for wisteria the other day,

11139626_10206988385412054_123610047_n10. Step Outside— Odd, coming across a Tim Horton’s in NY where a Dunkin should be…

I am probably going to go off-prompt for a while. It usually happens, once spring is here and there is light! However, at the end of the week, we will see if the subliminal messages I receive from the daily email manifest in my photos.  (of course I am posting late, AGAIN)

29. Look For The Light
30. Glow
31. Painting

1. Sundown
2. With the Sun
3. In the Garage
4. Dappled

Photos of the Week, CY365 w/e 3/7/15

BACK from vacation, and I actually DID take a photo on each of my non-vacation days…but they were pretty sad. So, instead, a weeks worth of traveling photos.

1. My Heritage
2. Vignettes
3. Where I Stand
4. Your 365
5. Legacy

6. Loved
7. An Heirloom

11020386_10206655080519640_855541210_n1. My Heritage—My grandmother bought this turquoise ring in California in 1927. She gave it to my aunt Sis and she gave it to me, against Grandma’s wishes because she thought I was too young at 12 to not lose it… I will be 50 on Tuesday… And have only lost it once! Daddy gave me the foot ring when I was about 20… I see it and always think of the poem FootPrints ….he is always with me….
11051631_10206666874574484_1073295768_n3. Where I Stand— In the Hershey Store at NYNY in Vegas with my middle baby brudder… ( ok so my DH took this, but how many more vacay photos do you want to see?)
11039353_10206668600457630_127991924_n4. Your 365—My 365 is about LOOKING with eyes that see… and recording MY year…. so. I am totally against the popular selfie photo that is taken in a public restroom… it just creeps me out…. I mean, yeah, you look GOOD! tonight, and so, to record for posterity, we can see some dirty bathroom stall behind you…. but I could not RESIST this … the mirror is hung on the ceiling! (actually at a 45 degree angle…)
11040066_10206683436068511_2005487857_n5. Legacy  -the Memories we make! My 50th birthday, on the “Grand Canal” of Venice, Las Vegas style!
11045819_10206675135661006_1094188547_o I believe there had been some “shoot from the hip” type of prompt in the expanded emails… This feels like there must be a great saying attached, along the lines of geriatric bikers…. Cool dude wouldn’t take off his shades to read his phone, so he stuck his reading glasses OVER them!

11046105_10206675137181044_1928892650_o Read it out loud. Cat owners DEFINITELY run this place.

11045627_10206652906385288_2062308350_o Actually a screen shot of the sunset we saw one night in AZ….
