On the Bay

Drop-ins at the Bay, Laugh and Play Pitter-patter, Welcome intrusion. Last night I decided that using borrowed images, or upcycling my own (which I’ve done here) is about all I can handle at the moment.

The Little Things

Purple Rain

What is it you want, Mary? What do you want? You want the moon? Just say the word and I’ll throw a lasso around it and pull it down. Hey. That’s a pretty good idea. I’ll give you the moon, Mary. George Bailey, It’s a Wonderful Life

Sidewalk Graffiti

These are shots today, from the front yard…after the rain. No objects- except the sidewalk- are in the photos, only their reflections in the damp ground (not really deep enough to call a puddle).
