Some tunes with hot tea this evening…

We took a pleasant break over the weekend. That’s part of the reason I’ve not been posting regularly. I’ve also been attempting to make sense of all the projects and activities I need to keep track of for our family and my business. It’s a bit of a scary mess, actually. Anyway, as we take it easy winding down with our cups of tea…

Here’s a chill playlist from a new channel I started following at the time I made my last tunes post: Keep Me Chilled. I hope you’ll enjoy the playlist.

My husband challenged me to a black and white photo challenge that lasts 5 days. I’m to take a photo for 5 days starting from the day I was tagged and tag someone new each day. It’s a facebook thing but I’m going to share my photos here, too. I’ll break them up into groups, though. I hope you enjoy them!

I’d intended to use the photo of Starshine for Cee’s Black and White Challenge but I don’t think I was in time to post it. I still wanted to share it since I really like the result. Both…

While I was taking a break this weekend, what we were doing as a family was visiting parents/grandparents. We stayed in McDonough, GA for a couple of days and while we were there, we visited the Veterans Memorial Park. It’s a great place and you should check it out if you’re in the area. The veterans working in the museum always have interesting stories to share and the ones we’ve met have been friendly and helpful. Today’s gallery doesn’t come from inside the museum but rather outside of it. There’s a fabulous collection of contraptions that were probably used in the early 1900s (how long they were used is anyone’s guess…) and they present a wonderful series of photo opportunities. I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I enjoyed editing them. If you want more info on any of these pictures, or if you’d like to download them…

Day 294 of my 365 Project

Star trail of the Orion constellation during the peak of the Orionid Meteor Shower this morning. 130 x 30 second shots merged together in Photoshop. The fuzziness is my lens getting condensation on it. No meteors were captured. :(

Not posting this weekend

Good morning/afternoon/evening (where ever you are in the world),

I’m not going to be posting any pictures this weekend. I won’t post any of my pictures of the day until Monday evening/Tuesday morning. I will be taking pictures and process them as if I’m going to post them but I’m not getting online to post them.

See everybody next week!!

Have a wonderful weekend.
