Weekly Photo Challenge: Liquid

      Yesterday I visited the Japanese Friendship Garden here in Phoenix, AZ.  I didn’t know what to expect before going, sometimes the names of locations here can be deceiving, however, this time I was pleasantly surprised.  The garden is located in the heart of the city, but once you step inside it feels…

Butterfly Wonderland

What do you do on a day when it’s 106 degrees outside?  A very fun and cool idea is to visit the butterfly conservatory, which is what I did today.  When you first arrive there is a short 3D film on the lifespan and migration of the butterfly.  Who knew they could fly such a great…

Sunset…

I’m not sure which I like best, a sunset or a sunrise.  I think they can both be equally gorgeous.  The skies here are beautiful, this weekend it has been extremely cloudy, so I took a few shots from my yard. Photo’s for the weekly challenge: Rise/Set Have a week everyone! xoxo

Vision of a Branch

  A branch is just like life  it has many twists and turns, but at the very end, there is beauty and hope.   Daily Word Prompt: Branch  

Fabric

Today’s word prompt gave me instant great memories.  When I was younger my grandmother moved in with us when we lived in Chicago.  Although at the time I never knew how much the trips would mean to me,  looking back it really was a special time. My mother and grandmother were both obsessed with spending…

The Serene evening

  This weekend was pretty nice, I did a little relaxing, a little sleeping in and a bit of outdoor fun time, which I will share tomorrow. One thing I do love about Arizona is that no matter what direction you’re facing, you are sure to see a mountain in your view.  I took a…

Wind.

  I had a different idea of what I was going to write today, but when I saw the daily word prompt I immediately thought of our trip to the Hoover Dam.  Water has always been a calming instrument for me, the soothing sounds of the water coming out from its far journey in the…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Trasformation

  One thing about Chicago is that over the years it is steadily improving its effort to be a green city and to push the boundaries of architecture.  Each year they have an art installment along Michigan Ave, this year it’s K9 dogs for cops, they are big statues of German Shepards which serves as a fundraiser…

Temporarily passing by.

  Clouds are temporary, they are never viewed in the same way each day.  It’s a lot like life, each day brings up a new challenge for us all to face.  The choices we make may seem just about the now, but they usually affect us somehow in the long run.  I’ve had a really…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Peek

One of my favorite things to take pictures of is the sun peeking through the clouds, I love to catch the rays shining through.  In the evenings here in Arizona the sky turns orange and purple, it was a bit cloudy this weekend so I didn’t get a chance to capture it, we had rain…
