Flower of the Day – Go for it!

You don’t always need a plan. Sometimes you just need to breathe, trust, let go, and see what happens.

Something Old

On my way home from work today I pass drive past this old car and had to make a u-turn and snap a picture.  This is for Throwback Thursday.

I found out about this new app called Super Photo by Lumix1216 (click his name and check out his IG account) and gave it a try.  This can take pictures to another level if you are not that savvy in Photoshop.

What do you think?  Do you like the first image or the second?

A view into the past

Batsto Village

After the little ones explored the weird on Sunday my oldest daughter and her husband did shine more exploring.

We venture to Batsto Village. I have not been here in about 2 years. The last time was for a car show.

It was a nice relaxing day.  Weather was perfect and company was even better.


To live in Batsto Village there were certain rules that you had to follow.  The things that people had to endure back in the day.  I am glad that we now have the labor board.


Thanks for taking a step back into the past with me!


A Throwback in Time

Vintage car at the 2014 Car Show at Batso Village (click the link for a bit of history). I am not sure what type of car this is but it is a timeless classic.

Original photo with two versions of an edit.  Which do you prefer?


As always thank you for visiting!

Throwback Thursday: Solitude

The weather is starting to get colder here in NJ so I thought it would be nice to see a beach scene from last April.

I like these annoying seagulls especially when they are alone.

Throwback Thursday

Although this photograph is not old, by converting it to black and white and adding some other editing effects makes it look old.  This picture was taken yesterday at my mother’s home after a break in the seemingly never-ending rain.

This tricycle and the standing rabbit are part of her front yard decorations.  My mother loves antiques of almost every variety.  I am sure she could be the only subject for an entire season of the Antiques Road Show.

This is my 3rd entry for the 30 Day Challenge: Black and White






Next entry for the challenge will be texture.  Who wants to join in?

Throwback Thursday: OBX

Today officially marks 7 days away from the beginning of peace and relaxation.  I cannot wait!

Vacation will be in our usual location, Outer Banks, NC.  I have already begun reviewing some of the pictures from last year.  I will be able to see the sunrise again.

Here is one of my favorite pictures from last year.

Throwback Thursday

For this week’s Thursday Throwback are pictures from June 3, 2014 that I took at the Grounds for Sculpture.

From a distance these sculptures could pass for real people, caught in a moment of time.


Click herehere, here, and yes here too to  see last year’s post.  My picture of Marilyn Monroe even made it in the local paper.
