CFFC: Vehicle Details

First, let's define "vehicle".  Did you know that the derivation of the word "Vehicle" comes from the Latin word for "to carry"?  So, a vehicle doesn't have to have wheels, or be propelled by an outside force.  It just has to carry something or someone.  I spent ten years as a hospital pharmacy technician in …

Wordless Wednesday, on Thursday: Traveling back to Ocean-cruise time

Some of my most relaxing times have been on cruises, sitting on my balcony with a book, or on the rail on the aft Promenade deck, watching and listening to the water go by. North Pacific Ocean, 2018 Sea and Sky, off Mexico 2018 Honolulu, 2018 Wake, North Pacific, 2018 Between Canada and the Pacific …

CBWC: Cee’s Black and White Challenge: Lines

Here's my entry into this week's Black and White Challenge on Cee Neuner's page.  Both of the photos below were taken in 2018, on our July cruise to Hawaii from San Francisco. The first picture shows the ceiling of the Crystal Symphony's Asian-themed restaurant.  When I am anywhere, indoors or out, I always look up …

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #163: Keep Walking

When I go for a walk in a scenic location (or even just around my neighborhood), I try to pay attention to my surroundings.  I live six blocks away from my local Costco store, so if I just want to pick up a prescription, I walk there and back. [let me put in a pitch …

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #153: Wonderful World (in two posts)

I never take our wonderful world for granted.  Wherever I go, I pay close attention to my surroundings, on my own level, and above and below me.  That is why, today, I am linking to another of my own posts, here at Calling-All-RushBabes.  Check out "I've looked at clouds from both sides now", below.  Just …

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #141: Geometry

Nature designed the world geometrically.  We just build on that natural geometry.  However, Nature doesn't use very many absolutely straight lines, so one way to spot a man-made structure is to check for straight lines.  Just a few weeks ago, on one of our day trips up to the Skagit Valley, I happened upon a …

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #125: You Pick It

As long as I get to pick my subjects, I will post some of what I consider to be the best photos I have taken for this blog.  Most have been spur-of-the-moment captures that just said "take my picture". This picture of the LaConner Marina just says "tranquillity" to me, and I remember thinking that …

Photo Challenge~~~I’d Rather Be…

So here I am, at my desk, doing our TAXES, for heaven's sake!  Yeah, it's that time of year. But I'd really rather be here: On the balcony of our stateroom, on the cruise ship, to Hawaii.  With my nose in a good book, and a nice glass of wine.  Just relaxing and watching and …

Surprise! What IS that on my plate?

Unlike many younger people these days, I don't normally take pictures of my food when eating out, or post them on social media (I am not on Facebook or Twitter anyway).  But this time, on our cruise to Alaska last summer, I just had to capture this.  It was the final night of the cruise, …
