Monet Moment

There are some things that after having photographed them time and time again I just don’t want to anymore; waterlilies are not one of them.  I look forward to them appearing every year at this one industrial park and even though I have been told by security to move my car once or twice, it doesn’t deter me.  Waterlilies make me want to sit and just be still with them – even though that never has happened as I am going back and forth with a camera – and remind me that one day I would love to see them in Giverny in Monet’s garden.

Maybe one day…

The back of history

While the majority of those who visit Old St. Charles meander along the main street, there is something to be said about the back of all of those old and historic buildings… other than the parking lots.  Can you imagine navigating these steps back in 1800’s attire?

The answer is blowing in the wind

But only if the question was about quilts.  While walking along the river front in St. Charles, Missouri we came across a quilting club that had their wares on display around the train depot building.  I was naughty.  Even though there was a sign that said do not touch – I touched.  You can see by the plastic that is underneath the quilts that there was a slight breeze going through.  Quilts are beautiful things especially when handmade and handed down through generations.  Do you have any?  I don’t know if I gave away the one I had ever since I was a child; if I still have it it is safely packed away somewhere but I do know I still have one I bought at an antique shop that I painstakingly hand repaired the worn by time parts.

There’s just something about quilts that make me think of being safe and warm at home.

Street Photography in Old St. Charles

I am still learning what my new Sony mirrorless camera can do (haven’t found the silent shutter button yet) and sometimes I score and sometimes I miss… but that happens now and again to all of us regardless of how long a time we’ve had our cameras.  We had just left the pub and had walked a bit north when I decided the more unique older buildings were south of the pub; meaning we turned around.  Most of the people on the street that day were tourists and nothing spoke to me until I saw this couple walking up the street.

While it isn’t the ideal composition I was going for (refer back to the still learning the new camera) I wanted to share it because they were such a unique couple.  He looks as if he came right from working on the farm or some carpentry site and she reminds me of someone from the 1940’s.  It’s not the best photo as far as sharpness and no body parts cut off but I feel they are quite the special couple.

Life and Stuff

I’ve had a lot going on lately.  Some of it has been stressful, some ongoing and painful and some was so what I needed.  I won’t bore you with the first two categories; they have and will continue (hopefully not for too long) to dictate how often I will be posting.  I’ve just returned from visiting Missouri though and that was the so needed part.  This photo was taken while sitting in our favorite pub in Old St. Charles, Missouri.  Nothing like a pint and a photo, huh?

But as this photo taken a few blocks south of the pub says, enjoy the little things.

And I totally enjoyed this super little thing and the rest of the family.  You cannot see it from this photo but I was wearing a Wonder Woman shirt.  We were 2/6th of the Justice League ♥

Lions on guard

In the front garden of a beautiful old home in Delaware, Ohio.  The owners have the perfect spot to enjoy summer from their patio; wonder if the back yard is just as lovely?
