This week I don’t see a common thought tying these seven images together but there is a sneaky unifying thread about this group that surprised me. Brick red is definitely not one of my favorite colors but shades of loud orange-red are present in each shot. It’s all but hidden in two photos when my favorite blues and greens took over but it looks like I found at least one moment in every single day when I couldn’t avoid the color.
Sunday’s photo is proof that we don’t let a little thing like rain spoil a BBQ and Monday morning Finn and I came across this piece of litter on our walk. Marijuana may be legal in Washington State but it’s still against the law to throw your trash on the ground. 😦 Tuesday I did a little happy dance in the middle of the grocery store when I found my favorite candy bar back in stock and Wednesday I realized taking allergy medication right before going to the gym wasn’t the smartest thing I could have done but at least I didn’t fall of the stationary bike.
Thursday was opening night of the Seattle International Film Festival and Friday Ryan and I took our first beach walk since New Year’s Day! If you’ve been following my blog for a while you may know Ryan has been on crutches and mostly out of school since January with a hip injury but I’m thrilled to report his healing has taken a turn for the better and he’s back on his feet again. 🙂 To end our week John and I enjoyed our first spring market morning and our first stop was for fresh flowers. At $5 a bunch I wanted to fill the car but we settled on one mixed bouquet and an armload of peonies.
Coming soon I’ve got a great set of new photos almost ready to share here from our latest spring adventures and if you’d like to follow along in real-time don’t forget I post my daily photos on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. If a once-a-week blog read is more your speed my weekly recaps will continue here along with caption notes containing editing information for each photo.
