So I started this post last week… and then I road off to Florida and just never got things together. I’m slow like that, sometimes. And so, I’m combining a few of last week’s Scavenger Hunt inspirations with this week’s.
Black and White
Reflections in Glass(Exploring with a Camera)
I wanted to capture Victory Lane at the Daytona Speedway in Art’s glasses. This is where the winner gets his trophy after Daytona 500.
These are some of the original lamp lights in the Ponce De Leon Lighthouse in the Inlet near Daytona. Not quite the typical headlights, but be really glad I didn’t share a photo from the beach (oh, the slang, the inappropriate slang).
My lens fogged miserably the first night on the beach. It was my father’s fault – he likes the hotel suite to have a bitterly cold chill so that the heat of the outside is actually more comfortable than the room. The haze didn’t stop me from trying to get a few shots of Ya at the beach for the first time (in his memory, that is). After day one, I set my camera outside (16th floor balcony – not recommended for ground floor) or near the window for a little while before going outside. It helped warm up the camera.
And this week’s Hunt:
Music to My Ears
We’re midway through summer, and by about midday, the sweetest music to my ears is that of silent sleeping littles.
If she were the type to play with dolls and such, I suppose she’d be tea time ready, but my daughter prefers toting little trinkets in her pockets while playing Scribblenauts on her DS.
I’ve given up on trying to coax out a strained smile, so this is the new normal for portraits of Ya. We ventured out early to catch the beach clear of crowds and the skies clearly blue.
Out of this World
I am reminded just how blessed I am to see sunrises like this one…
Perhaps I’m stretching this one a bit, but all I kept thinking was sprinkles = sprinkler = sprinkles of water. I know, I’m not too swift with equations.
You might say this is the interstate post – – the Virginia/Florida edition… I love summer vacation (most of the time).
