cobalt blue & pine trees…

this is one of my neighbors garden areas, a bit of a hodge podge, but I’m fond of the cobalt blue flowers.  I’m hoping to be able to do some planting this year?!

this photo is one that I took from my moving vehicle, I rather liked the scene…I know it is a bit blurry but I think it looks like a painting rather than a photo…

both…b & w & c

I love flowers, but I’m partial to specific colors, such as purple/mauve and white…maybe that is why I like black & white so much?

By the way…it is snowing here again, we are supposed to get between 10 and 15 cen…or between 4 to 6 inches!  Hence the flowers!

Yoga anyone?

During my time in Marco Island I watched these people practice Yoga  from my 5th floor balcony…they arrived about 20 minutes before sunset and proceeded to do their thing.  I did Yoga a number of years ago and I can see where being on a beach during the sunset would be a great way to do Yoga!  It was cloudy at this point but the after glow was awesome!

treasures of the sea???

It all depends on how you look at things, what you see…right?   I’m sure many see these as nothing of importance or worthy of a second look.   To me these are interesting finds…especially the beautiful empty intact shell!  Just look at the Nacre, or Mother of Pearl as it is known in the jewelry world… it is smooth, an even color, without damage.  For those who aren’t familiar, Nacre is the white inner lining of the shell, the outer layer of pearls is also Nacre.   This would make a beautiful piece of jewelry if you were into making something from raw materials such as this…

after the sunset II…

when your condo is facing west it is difficult not to be obsessed with sunsets or the after glow…here are two more photos…I particularly liked the contrast between the dark wispy cloud and the colorful one!

close up…

It is great when I’m able to get close…there is so much detail to see!   This fellow along with a few friends was at a Marina on the North East side of Marco.

I got the feeling food tossed their way at this Marina, there were a few people fishing from the dock & something smelled tasty!

gray scale sunset…

when I take a photo of the sunset, sometimes the colors look right to me and sometimes they don’t…when they don’t I try the grayscale…I rather like it!

would you give it a try?

This is something I would like to do but won’t…my body would rebel!  I always thought it looked like fun though.  We saw boat drawn para-gliders each day, but only this motorized para-glider …as in the second photo, during the two weeks there.
