Three trees, three antennas

The afternoon turned blustery after the strong rain showers receded. I was drawn to the wind swept trees, but then I noticed the repeating pattern of the antenna towers.

Desperate reflection

At first glance it almost looks like an evil monster eye. But it's not. It is just a puddle in the parking lot.

This is the second photo of our parking lot in the last month. Perhaps a sign of desperation? Seems like my picture making goes in streaks... some days I see a lot, and sometimes my eye just does not notice or find anything of interest. So this is an attempt to get the flow going again... a little desperation.

The good news, the puddle is an indication of rain... something we really need. Our lawns are beige and crunchy. This shower is probably not going to help much, but it can't hurt.

The image reflected is of that unloved sculpture I have posted about before. So why do I keep photographing it?

Car storage

We Americans have lots of cars and we all like to go to the same place. So where do we put our car when there are so many other cars already there? The parking lot is already full.

Let's build big buildings just to store our cars in while we shop.

Salt rivers

What happens if you seal asphalt without first washing away the snowmelt salt?

The accumulated salt bleeds thought the sealant creating what appears to be rivers of salt.

And that shadow of a giant? It is only the photographer.

Late afternoon shadows

As the day fades and the sun slips low in the sky, shadows and pools of light transform the edge of my back yard into warm colors and expressive contours. Another delightful summer day draws to a close.

Mountains, lakes and trees.

Restful and unhurried.

Natural beauty.

Another birthday

235 years, 12,262 weeks, 85,830 days.

Each year we set aside a day to celebrate the beginning of our country. Most times it is a sunny and warm day, and a great time to be outside... and so it was this year.

Happy Birthday America!

Note: The next few entries were taken while traveling and I did not have access to editing and uploading tools. This breaks my rule of posting photos with-in 2 days of capture... but in this case it was unavoidable.
