This photo obviously doesn’t do the dress justice. I love this shot though… Mary’s dress with Karen in the mirror behind.
Here it is… the continuation of my posting about LAST weekend. Not this one just passed. No… the previous weekend. Again I say, how lame am I? To which I reply, because I often talk to myself electronically through my own blog, not lame at all… busy.
I love this photo. I took it while wondering around the east side with the troupe. Random, yet cool.
This is another one taken with the iPhone at Cathedral Park this last Friday. Friday, by the way, would’ve been my dad’s birthday. He would’ve been 66. I kept thinking about him all day, and ended up playing a little bit of his music when I got home. Makes me cry to hear him, but then I’m so glad I have that. So glad I have him singing and playing his pedal steel, which he loved almost as much as he loved all of us. I miss you dad…. and I love you.
This weeks theme for the hunt is Stripes. Usually I just include one photo and call it good, but this week I’m going to post a few photos I found that fit. Why? Well… because I couldn’t pick just one.
We went on a cruise and I loved this long row of lounge chairs. This was taken before the ship actually set sail which is why they’re empty. Normally they’d be pretty packed with peeps getting a tan, reading, relaxing, napping… you name it.
This is the little guy, Weston, with the Ref. He’s really not a huge toy guy. He loves to play chuck it, to have the ball thrown for him, to chew on his bully stix, and to be loved on. Strangely he loved this guy and chewed, pulled, and gnawed at him until all his stuffing was gone.
We went on a little road trip a year or so ago and this was taken while driving Hwy 101 from California, through the Redwoods, to Oregon. We hadn’t planned going this way, but were forced to as the Siskiyous were snowed in and I-5 was briefly closed. It ended up being a great drive, though it rained and rained and rained. We saw some cool elk, stood next to huge grand trees, and spent a lot of time cracking up by the little mister’s (Weston’s) expressions.
Here she is, the little girly, Riley. She’s looking cute and small here. Must have had a recent haircut. She’s due for another. I think she’s going to look pretty cute. But then, I always think she looks really cute.
Lastly… here’s one taken during our recent road trip down to San Jose to see family. That’s me, in the side view, taking the shot.

I’m always grabbing the camera and shooting something. Even if it’s something that on the surface might not initially seem that interesting. What can I say… the world through a lens is fascinating to me and very different looking than the real world. I don’t see dead people… I see photographs. Everywhere.
Our next stop on Saturday was Stanley Park. It’s the third largest park in North America and it’s beautiful. Many places to walk, loads of artists set up and drawing/painting and selling their art, a great aquarium, and fantastic views. We stopped here first. Karen and I took a walk with Weston while Mary and Martin went into the aquarium to have a look around. I loved this shot. Reflection on the water, city on one side, forest on the other. To me this photo is very much about what Vancouver has to offer.
Walking along N. Mississippi Avenue you pass some businesses who are very serious about keeping out the less than desirable types, of which we very well could’ve been some… who knows for sure. Although a stark contrast to the warm and inviting shops and restaurants that line Mississippi, the barbed wire is kind of beautiful reflected in a puddle left by the recent rain.
