52 Photos Project: The Table

Sur la table. . .

From beginning to end

scrumptious fare.

And for the wild women 
a little Damiana Margarita on the side.

Ruby Tuesday: Popcorn

It's bright red, has a lively sound,
a spiffy awning, little globe lights
and smells good.

I'll have mine buttered
with a Diet Coke on the side.

Weekend Reflections: Marina Flags

Marina flags.

Can you tell I live in a village 
with a scenic harbor?

52 Photos Project: Summer Treat

Summer treat?

The one that springs to mind

is the marvelous photo workshop

I went to last summer in Venice.

It pushed me technically in ways I never imagined.

Filled my heart (and stomach).

And let me find that my love affair with Venice

isn't dependent on being there with the someone 
I loved truly, madly, deeply
on my first magical Venice visit.

My love for Venice is soul deep.

52 Photos Project: Pushing Through Hesitation

52 Photos Project prompted us to post a photo
that we hesitated to take. . . that we had to
push through the brain chatter to capture.

So here's mine.

I was on the shady side of the street
in Guanajuato. The wind was plucking
at the curtains on this sunny balcony,
making the lace dance.

And in the shadows, I saw an elderly lady
sitting on a chair between the curtains,
watching life pass her by on the street below.

I hesitated -- it seemed like a private moment.
What was she thinking?
Was she waiting for someone to come
and share her silence?
For someone to bring her a cool drink
on a warm day?

But I pushed through the questions
and the feeling of intrusion and snapped.

Was it only coincidence that
 she disappeared from view a moment later?
