Day 201: Shadows

Early morning sun casting shadows from a nearby tree onto the garage in my back yard. It reminds me of the photogram I made in my B&W analog photography class oh so many years ago.

Day 198: Life

One of the many Crepe Myrtles in my yard. These southern beauties don’t let the heat and humidity get them down!

Day 196: Florida Summer Storms

Anyone who has lived in Northeast Florida for any length of time knows that all outdoor activities need to be completed first thing in the morning. It’s not just because the afternoons during the months of June through August are oppressively hot, but also due to the fact that late-afternoon, fast-moving thunderstorms are a staple here. I know that there is some very technical reason for them, reasons that involve the humidity and temperature  other things I know nothing about, but my husband could explain to you in his sleep.

Though many people I know hate thunderstorms, I absolutely love them. We had one blow through right over my office the other day, and you could almost feel the rumble of the thunder bringing in dark clouds that transformed the sky from bright and sunny to dark and moody.

There isn’t anything about a storm that I don’t love; dark clouds, winds, thunder, lightening, and yes, even the large drops of rain. The best part though, is that you can physically feel when a storm is on it’s way, not because of the rain, but because the air gets a little lighter and there is an energy shift, also and it smells a little different – not necessarily cleaner, but just different.

Today the storms are arriving right on time. I grabbed my camera and snagged a few shots of the sky as the clouds moved in.  Maybe I missed my calling as a storm chaser.

Day 194: Guarding Their Treasure

I took our dogs out into the backyard on Saturday evening and noticed that our garden gnomes had left their post at our front door and were now in the backyard hanging out by a tree stump – I wonder if that’s the doorway to their underground treasure?

I always thought it was just leprechauns and dragons who guarded their treasures, but according to this article on, gnomes do too.

What? There’s nothing to see here.

Day 193: Chains

This photo is pretty straight forward. There are two large pine trees in my back yard with chains around them, my guess is they were used to hang a hammock. I bought a hammock many, many years ago, I wonder if I found it if it would still be usable. Perhaps that will be another photo – once it cools off here.
