Sunday Photo Essay


The day ended up yielding several unrelated images, so I think I'll just call them another photo essay!

picnic food line

The BIG project of the day was to get out to the work site with the evening's food. I was planning have breakfast with me too, and to stay all night. However, the spaghetti sauce for tomorrow night was still cooking and I didn't have some computer stuff done, so I decided to come home for the night. I have to be out there at 6:30 in the morning! This is just the beginning of the food line. People actually wandered in for about an hour, and then I packed up and came home.

yellow labs

This is Cedar and Teak. You've met them before (see link to Four Dogs and a Friend). Can you tell them apart? It's really hard. Cedar has a redder nose. Their people are part of the work crew that I'm feeding.

sedum

This is a surprise! I found a sedum growing on the edge of the cemetery. The grounds keepers throw all kinds of things toward and in the gully. So a couple of years ago I dug it up and plopped it in my flower bed. I really like the tones in it... hope it is happy and continues to thrive.

sunset

Finally, at the end of it all, what a nice reward! I did not touch this up at all.

For the rest of the week I'll probably be posting mid-day. See you after breakfast!

Beautiful sunset and beautiful sedum. The dogs are sweet and it really is hard to tell the difference in the two!

We always find surprise, and we always miss 100% of the shots we don't take.

It is so lucky you have taken them all.
