A Drive By Shooting

Today on my way to Germantown, PA (a section of Philadelphia) to see a my cousin Bill’s one man show Billosophy:Life-Circus-Death.  I had planned on taking plenty of pictures of the show but my silly self left the battery for my camera home still in the charger.

His show will be going on next weekend as well so he arranged for me to take behind the scene pictures.  So sometimes when things are going wrong it actually works in your favor.

On the ride there I was fortunate to be a passenger.  I am never the passenger always the designated driver.

Taking of advantage of this I started clicking away at everything with my cell.  The pictures are not great by any means but they will give you a glimpse of what Philadelphia has to offer besides the obvious.

Philly is famous for a lot of things.  One of them is Mural and Graffiti Art.  This is something that I like to look at while there.  Here is just a small sampling of the art on Broad Street.

To see more of Art that Philadelphia has to offer check out Mural Art.

A Flat Planet

Although the sun is “emerging” from the other side, it does appear that it is on the edge of the ocean.

This was taken while I was on vacation in Nags Head, North Carolina.

Glitter and Lace

I have learned to carry a spray bottle with me when I go outside.  You never know when you will find a nice spider web to photograph.

This is not as clear as I would like it to be but I think it still turned out pretty good.

What extra thing do you carry with you when you go out to shoot?

Alert Level Orange

Driving home after work I usually see this herd of deer in a field not far off the road.  As things go I either don’t have my camera or traffic is too busy to stop.  I got luck about 2 weeks ago.  Camera was ready and no traffic.

As soon as I pulled over the adult deers were on high alert, a level Orange based on the Homeland Security System.  They posed long enough for me to get a couple of quick shots and then they were gone.

Last One

While at Princeton Battlefield friday we noticed that there were several apple trees in a small cluster but this was the last apple.

To be a kid again!

I am so glad that we moved out of that apartment.  Arai is such and outdoors kid.  He loves playing in water, collecting rocks of all sizes and colors,  and walking outside with no shoes.  If we let him he would be in just his underwear.

 

As a kid my two favorite things to do was to climb trees and ride my bike.  What did you enjoy doing as a kid?

Just a Bit of Attitude

I do not know why but I have a thing for bugs, insects and such.  My grandson Arai is aware of this so when every he sees a bug he calls me to take pictures of it.

Yesterday he saw a butterfly on my flowers and proceeded to tell me to come out “….Mom-mom come here there’s a white butterfly with a mole on it, hurry-up and be quite you don’t want to scare it…”.  He listens so well (when he wants to).

After this was taken he chose not to listen to his mother and was sent to “time-out”.  He was all attitude at that point.

But lucky for us, his attitudes do not last long.  Within 5 minutes we were back looking for more insects to photograph.

Thanks for visiting!
