My Year In Pictures: March Week 5

There are days when I can focus on the big picture and let little things go by the wayside but then comes a week when the big picture is just a bit to big and I narrow my field of vision searching for small things that make me happy.  I didn’t over think this trend at the end of March but looking through these 7 photos suggests that’s exactly what happened.

My Sunday search for a photo opportunity led me to the backyard and a pretty batch of spring flowers while Monday’s bright spot was a quick run through the car wash.  Tuesday afternoon was spent at Children’s Hospital followed by a stop at Starbucks for some welcome caffeine before driving home.

Wednesday didn’t exactly go as planned but John surprised me with these pretty flowers before dinner and Thursday I asked my Instagram and Facebook friends if they thought looking at the bottom of a glass was a happy or sad moment.  Would they be happy because the Gin & Tonic was so nice or sad because it was gone… results were split 50-50. 🙂  Friday night I liked this view of bare branches in the evening sun and Saturday afternoon Black Widow rode her motorcycle across our deck.

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 InstagramTwitter 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.

Phoneography Challenge: Nature (City Trees in Winter and the B&W Challenge Day 1)

Even though our 2014/2015 winter is shaping up to be the winter-that-wasn’t I’ve spent it either inside the house or out on city streets too busy to take advantage of our unseasonably warm days.  I wish I had a camera roll full of forests and snow-covered mountains to share but this image of bare trees in the middle of Seattle’s Pioneer Square pretty much sums up my 2015 nature experiences.

 The very creative Meg over at Move the Chair has invited me to participate in a 5 day black and white challenge and today’s post represents day 1. I hope you’ll come back for four more images from our winter(ish) Saturday in Seattle’s International District and Pioneer Square.
