This past week was a fun one filled with lots of work, the end of the school quarter, crazy spring weather and Easter preparations but thanks to this “shake it to randomize” series I made sure to stop at least once every day and look for something pretty that would have been overlooked in my rush to the next item on the list.
Sunday night John opened this Seahawk banner that’s been flying over his office building since their 2014 Super Bowl win. The edges are frayed from a years worth of wind and rain so his bosses finally took it down but they thought Ryan would like it so I guess I’ll be finding somewhere to stash a big flag inside the house for the next few years. Monday evening’s few minutes of sunshine were enough to step outside and see our pretty green Japanese maple starting to leaf and Tuesday morning I found Finn’s favorite blanket unoccupied at the top of the stairs. He’s a tactile dog and loves cozy fleece but everything he touches is permanently covered in white dog hair…
Wednesday morning I Finn and I walked up our hill at the exact moment the sun cleared the top and Ryan’s school bus passed by. Thursday’s image is another attempt to capture this part of our neighborhood and all the pretty shades of green but once again Hipstamatic decided to change things up and shoot it in black and white. It’s a good thing I’m liking all these new black and white combinations. 🙂 Friday is a corner view of a pretty flower shop ready for a rush of Easter shoppers and Saturday found us in a new Antique store. I wish we had room for a few of these old bags!
Each photo is straight from Hipstamatic’s “shake to randomize” function and posted without any additional editing. If you like a particular combination and want to try it at home just click on the image to see the lens and filter used. I will be away from WordPress next week enjoying some time off with Ryan for his Spring Break but I’ll be back next Sunday with 7 new photos and maybe even a few new favorites!
