Look Up – Black Cube-Like Building

I snapped this picture when I was in San Francisco for a library convention. I was using my iPhone and couldn’t find a spot to get the whole building. It is the Contemporary Jewish Museum. Libeskind – designed cultural Center. This link will show the whole building and information on the center. [6-28-2015]

Admiration – Family

Those who follow my site, know I don’t usually post pictures of my children’s family. I quickly took this picture Saturday while at the Franklin Institute when they were eating lunch. The institute’s exhibit was the Science Behind Pixar. We had a fabulous time. It’s a little blurry, I was in a hurry in case they looked up.

“(Extra) ordinary” – Stilt Walkers – WPC

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “(Extra)ordinary.”

Everyone’s pictures for this challenge was so good, that I had a hard time finding something. I settled on this  picture of ordinary people doing something extraordinary! This is a photo I took in April 2010 at an Arizona festival when I still had an iPhone.

Vivid – Dance Mask

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Vivid.”

Taken before I really thought about centering  photos. I always thought it looked OK in the viewer, but now that I know better it is kind of sad. Still I like the bright orange of the mask.

Wall

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Wall.”

This wall came about because of graffiti. The owner decided to paint this, and anytime graffiti was add somewhere he just added to the picture.  Sometimes it changes, but I have never photographed it. Now I will have a reason.

local wallThis wall is in a backyard. When left with some homemade tiles and no place to hang them, we decided to put them up on a wall. A bird feeder prevents a nice straight on picture.
