Sometimes life events converge to the point where personal goals, such as producing one shareable photograph per week, seem to move off the grid. Or maybe not. I almost posted a picture of a keyboard, but instead will share this lovely view of yet another sunset appearing in a window at the end of a hospital hallway.
The snow drifting lazily down did not deter this crew of determined bluebirds from coming out on a Sunday morning for their breakfast. I’ve noticed that they tend to arrive as a family and leave as a family. A brave female cardinal is likely to join them, but the smaller birds usually wait their turn when the bluebirds are feeding. The male cardinal likes to have the whole cafe to himself, as does a large redheaded woodpecker who lives in the neighborhood.
You take your photographic opportunities as they present themselves. How could I ignore this beautiful sunset while driving on the Pennsylvania Turnpike last weekend? (Fortunately my husband was driving, not me!) I promise to post something other than a sunset next week…although if another spectacular one were to present itself to me…
It had been raining all day. I just happened to be driving down King Street in Alexandria towards the waterfront when the sun broke just before sunset. And then all of a sudden, this huge rainbow filled the sky, with one of its ends dipping down at the end of the street in front of me. I took out my Nikon Coolpix and began snapping.
