this photo is of a crumbling curb and a grate that surrounds a small tree.
it’s a limited time parking spot that is usually open. i could hardly get in or
out of my car door as the little tree and my door were having a tussle.
i was picking up some food-to-go from the ixtapa restaurant. i had settled
the food into the car and thought i would snap a picture. the dark spots on
the grate were from little drops of rain. i made it into the car before it was
cats and dogs.
and it smelled so good on the way home. burrito, baby!
coming this weekend:
a quilt show at the champoeg heritage visitor center, with more than fifty
historical and modern quilts to be displayed.
also, costumed volunteers from the piecemakers quilt guild giving quilt
demonstrations. i assume that the costumes are of a historical nature.
i’m hoping to go and have a good look.
thanks, journey.sorry, i didn't see your name at your blog.sandra . we can give each other photo ideas.lorrie :-)
I LOVE this photo!!
I would never have thought to take that photo. I will now.
Have a lovely time looking at the beautiful quilts. Love the picture! Extraordinary!
thanks, paul :-)
I love this photo Nance. The composition and colors are beautiful
beth . yeah. i can see that, like one of those crazy quilts where the fabric meets together in all different angles. (just like friends)it would be fun to go to the show together. it looks like we will have to settle for virtually.
The elements in your picture almost create a quilt of their own. I love the textures and you being able to see beauty and thus show me beauty in what is usually considered mundane.Enjoy gawking at more beauty this weekend—I love quilts—I'd go with you if I could.
duane,you are funny and kind.which is a very good combination.
Okay. I LOVE that photo. Nance, you teach me daily to find the extraordinary in the ordinary. I'm learning to look through your eyes more and more. -DS
val . i love seeing quilts. maybe i should make one.susan . i can see that, now that you've said it.linda . thanks for that. i shall take my camera :-)♥
Take lots and lots of pictures please!You have a wonderful eye for capturing the beauty in the most unexpected places Nance.
your photo reminds me of a fern frond in the fall when they have turned brown …
I'm glad that you made it inside before the cats and dogs. What an exquisite photo! Enjoy the tactile goodness of the quilt show (even if they won't let you touch).
thanks for the comment, glynn :-)
