Scavenger Hunt Sunday

What better way to get back on track than to join up with two of my favorite blog memes; Ashley Sisk's Scavenger Hunt Sunday and James' Weekend Reflection. So, here we go with out any big fan fare. 


Getting Ready:
While the city is getting ready for winter laying new drain pipes, this little guy was having an exciting time watching the construction.


Teeny Tiny:
How about a teeny tiny reflection of myself in a raindrop?

Alright this may be a stretch, but seeing this house makes me wonder what type of connection the architect was trying to impart. While I love architecture I am sadly not very good with the names of architectural styles, but this too me looks like a Dutch farmhouse / English castle. Maybe the family was English and Dutch? Or, perhaps the pampered daughter of the house convinced mom and dad she needed a castle tower to play in. 

There it is folks. Please be sure to stop on by Ashley and Jame's blogs and join in the fun.

Scavenger Hunt Sunday

It has been a while since I was able to join in the fun of Scavenger Hunt Sunday. This photo prompt meme is both fun and challenging. Here are my interpretations for this week and if you enjoy these please pop over to Ashley Sisk's blog and join the fun.

This is not the monochromatic shot I wanted to find but it is the only one I liked that I found.  This is not a black and white shot nor even a black and white conversion. The image is in color, it just happens that the paint was such a dirty white as to be almost grey.

Starts with the letter:
The M from Max's bar and grill.

Upside down:
I had yet to decide what I was going to use for this prompt when I went to the park with two of my grandchildren. I told them I still needed to find a good shot for upside down when my grandson said how about this. So of course I took a shot of his upside down pose.
Then I suggested my granddaughter swing high and lean over back so I could get a shot of her almost upside down  in the air. Well, unfortunately she is afraid of heights so we compromised. I laid on the ground on my back in the path of the swing as she swung upside down on her tummy. Thankfully the seat of this particular swing was high off the ground she didn't have to swing high for me to get this shot.

This weekend my two daughters and I died our hair, and I had every intention of taking fun shot that included all three of us. However, my oldest daughter got sick and isn't up to posing for the shot I want. So I am pulling this one I took of her hair last time we died her hair from my archives.

Don't the petals on this flower look soft as velvet?

Next weeks prompts:

1) Kiss
2) Askew 
3) Fragrant 
4) Simple 
5) Plant

Walking past a local cafe I was drawn to the lines of the red rails and this reflection of the rails and the little red car. Joining in with the fun at Jame's Weekend Reflections.

Classic Cars

I drive past Fantom Works on my way to or from work and never have a chance to stop and admire the beauties parked out front, until today that is. 

As much as I love the old Thunderbird, given a choice I would park that little blue Austin in my garage any day!

This little pink tricycle looked so forlorn stuck back in the bushes as if it had been forgotten.
