You Zig, I'll Zag

zigzag with pink corner
I've been dreaming of chevron backed pillows with my Optimists' happy faces on the front. Unfortunately, my efforts in screen printing on fabric usually result in a sloppy mess (sigh). It might be time to find a pro.

Autumn Falling

Right on schedule, this morning's air was a bit more crisp & a layer of fog blanketed the city.
A change in season usually means a creative avalanche for me. C'mon inspiration, bring it on, I'm ready for you.

A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to this Photo

As I leaned over a railing to snap some shots of this pretty girl,
a curious elderly man approached: "What are you taking pictures of?" (me) "A duck, -see?" (elderly man looks) "The males are much better looking." (me) "I think she is cute." (elderly man) "Cute. huh. You need to give her some bread." (me) "I know! I feel terrible that I don't have any with me!" (elderly man) "Give her your gum." ...(me) "Uhm, I don't think that would be very good for her." (elderly man) "Yes, but it would be good for you!"

I'm trying to decide if he meant that chewing gum was bad for me, or if a photo of a gum chewing duck would be extra nice...

Sometimes, the best way to brighten up a Monday morning is to remember the weekend.
A Good Weekend
Thanks Santa Barbara!

As you can imagine, I'm doing a little happy dance right now:)

Isn't she a beauty?
1941 Caddy
The owner of this 1941 Cadillac coupe was nice enough to let me take a few photos. As a bonus, he described the Cadillac hood ornaments from the 30's on. Good day folks, good day:)

Cloudy with a Chance of Sandcastles

The clouds are back,
Cloudy Beach Day
which makes for a more interesting sky, & hearty Seattle souls who put on a jacket, go to the beach, & embellish their sandcastles with shells & feathers.

Right next to this peaceful scene were cars stuck in a 6:00 p.m. traffic jam,
Quiet Moment on the Waterfront
& bike riders flying past the non-moving cars -probably feeling like they owned the world.
