Open Eyes: What I’m Seeing

For a mostly-wordless Wednesday, I thought I’d share a look at what I’m seeing around my neighborhood lately. I took these snapshots during my walks with Winchester this past weekend. It’s been sunny and not too hot recently–perfect Southern California spring weather! I’ve done minor edits on these photos, but primarily for cropping and emphasis–no artificial colors or filters were used in the creation of this blog post.

(Semi-)#WordlessWednesday: Scarecrows of the Central Coast

I thought I’d show you some of the participants we encountered along Main Street. Apparently, crows are scared of skeletons. Who knew?  With California’s severe drought in mind, the […]

I have to skip the Fall edition of Dewey’s 24-Hour Readathon this Saturday, so I thought I’d collage some Mini-Challenge photos from last Spring.

One of my favorite things about the cities of the Northeast is the way old and new buildings live side by side, like here in downtown Boston.

Technically, we’ve still got several weeks of the season left, but in practical terms, most of us probably don’t. Seasons make no difference to Bel. She gets to do this every day.
