365 Photography Project_Twenty-Fourth Post

Finally caught back up.

Sunday March 20, 2011 tropical plant which carries no meaning other than it's kind of cool looking, almost sculptural.



Monday March 21, 2011 In comparison, this is now the view when I get the paper at 6:30am.


Tuesday March 22, 2011 OMG not the courtyard again. Yup, the courtyard again.


Wednesday March 23, 2011 This is my view, through part of David's shot-glass collection and toward the back fence, when I sit in my corner of the couch.


Thursday March 24, 2011 Since starting my newest mission101 last August, I'm supposed to be taking 1 picture of myself each month, this would be the 2nd so, obviously, I'm not doing very well with this task. Maybe from now on I'll do this, take one as I'm leaving for work once each month, not too bad.


Friday March 25, 2011 This park has become my favorite place to go when I can't think of anything else to photograph, it's small and pretty in every direction.


Saturday March 26, 2011 Lauren's high school's production of 'Cat on a Hot Tin Roof' with all the expletive-deleteds  left-in. Tennessee would have been so proud. Ben, the boy on the bed who played Nick, Lucy, the girl behind the couch who played Maggie, and Olivia, the girl sitting on the arm of the couch who played Big Mama,  are all in Lauren's' AP Lit class and they cover the gambit, Olivia never speaks, Ben never shuts up and Lucy speaks when spoken to. They all did an excellent job, but Lucy absolutely shone, her southern mannerisms and speech were perfect, she rarely messed-up a line, stunning given how much dialog her character has, and she seemed so comfortable on stage, although Lauren said Lucy said, before the play opened, she was having nightmares where she kept messing up her lines and couldn't remember anything.

I'm soooo glad you do. The skirt, leggings & boots, those are one of three pairs of black ankle books I wear, are a pretty much a constant with just the top changing which makes getting ready pretty damn easy.

Great photos as always! It's also nice to put a face to the name :)

thank you!!! And you're right, it is cool to be able to put a face with a name, although I have to think that we almost never look the way others imagine we will.

That first shot is very cool -- at first glance I thought it was grains of wood.

those big thick-leafed tropical plants can be deceiving, it's the colors I find amazing.

Exceptional Set of Pics
I loved every one.

The way you've framed the first picture makes your tropical plant into a abstract work of art. Lovely and intriguing.

The second picture reminded me of growing up in Walnut Creek in Contra Costa County. I remember waiting for the school bus and hearing invisible trucks rumble by half a block away. My little sister was terrified of them.

There can NEVER be too much courtyard.

I love the shot glass collection.

My, don't you look chic and put-together on your way out the door. I love the idea of taking a picture at the same time and place once a month. Do it.

The more I see of your bedroom, the more I love its richness. What's funny is that my bedroom is almost the exact opposite. My urge is to pare it down and lighten it up. Bare floors, white curtains and blinds, pale floral coverlet, white linen. But I love your approach, too.

Love the many shades of green in the park.

And the production of "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof!" Who wouldn't love that? FanSee

Re: Exceptional Set of Pics
Thank you!! I'm glad there can never be too much courtyard...or park hopefully. The shot-glasses are collected when we travel so they actually have meaning. It's David's collection because his is the final choice

So much of what's in our bedroom was either given to us or inherited by me, I went with it and added and added. The furniture was basically David's choice, we both like the very clean lines but in warmer colors. The colors are mine, I do like the jewel tones. I like your pared down style, your lighter colors, always reminds me of the beach somehow.

The park really is lovely - all the layers and textures.

I wear all black a lot too. :)

I have a small shot glass collection too. I try not to collect things and have stopped friends from giving me a certain kind of thing when I notice it is becoming a trend. For instance, I had a friend who got it into her head that I liked pears. Don't know how this happened since I could take them or leave them, but for two different Christmases, she gave me a pear-themed item. After the second one, I told her, that was the last pear she was ever to buy me! Now, I love and am all nostalgic when I use my pear plate and see my gold pear ornament because they are a small family with no more brothers and sisters coming to join them ever. It makes me treasure them more.

Is that your house with the fancy wood trim? I love it! Did you have it installed or was it there and does it have a specific name for the style of the gingerbread?

Actually, that house is our across-the-street neighbors, that particular style comes that way, all trimmed out, our complex is called 'Dutch Haven' and there does seem to be a Scandinavian theme.

I always go a little nuts when I start a new collection but then, I slow-up and get very selective. David's shot-glasses are mostly places we've visited so, will always remain a collection in progress. I love how you view your collection of two, all the more special because it is so selective.

I also *heart* black.

Same boat. LOL!

I actually know someone on Ravelry (a knitter's social website) that took one picture every day of the exact same spot in her yard.

I seem to be gravitating towards pics of my dogs.

Saturday March 26, 2011 Lauren's high school's production of 'Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

I think it's awesome your daughter's school has some sort of a theatre program. So often the arts are the first thing to go!

Glad to hear it, that I'm not the only one.

Lauren's school actually does a very good job with the arts, she's taking both photography & art this year, in fact, four years of art and two of photography instruction are offered. Plus the theater is brand new, over the last two years every highschool in the district got one, we were, naturally, the last, 'Cat' being the first play presented there. Pretty cool, huh?

Love the courtyard and the pics with the glasses... really cool!
Beautiful the pic of you! Yep, you should take more photos of yourself ;)

Thank you, the courtyard is my mainstay. It's amazing how often I sit gazing out that window, past all those glasses to the tree tops beyond, my place.

Glad you like the pic of me, I'll try to do more. I hate having my photo taken which is why I put that as a task on my mission101 list, to try and get over my self-consciousness.
