Tuesday Photo Challenge – Kitchen

The theme for this week’s Tuesday photo Challenge is KITCHEN. There are two photos of my kitchen. Can you tell which one is the old kitchen and which one is the new kitchen? Which one do you like better?

Weekly Photo Challenge – Peek

When I travel, I love to peek through the airplane windows to see if I could capture some interesting sights. The photos in this post were the aerial views from my recent trips to Portland, Oregon to visit my daughter, son-in-law, and my granddaughter.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Rounded

The theme of this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge is “rounded.” I take the literal interpretation to choose the landmark structures, buildings, and the dancing water that we visited in Spain.

Tuesday Photo Challenge – Sky

Frank’s theme for Tuesday Photo Challenge is SKY.

When I look into the sky in Portland, Oregon, I can see a true blue sky on a clear day. The autumn afternoon in the first photo, there were thin clouds in the air. By looking at the trailing of the clouds, I could see the direction of the wind.

The second photo was when we went on a dinner cruise in the Columbia River Gorge, Oregon, watching the sunset and the beautiful sky.

Apparently I love to take photos of the clouds and sky. The third photo was at Laguna Beach, California when the sun peeked out from the rain clouds.

The last photo was in Laguna Lake by my home on this quiet afternoon, with the clouds and sky reflected in the calm water.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Glow

I love to take the full moon photos. The first two photos were taken this year, one on April 11, and the other on July 9, 2017.

Even more so, I love to take sunset photos. Hopefully, when the moment presents itself, I also have a camera at hand. The first sunset photo was taken in Huntington Beach, California right after we had a seafood dinner in a December evening, 2016. The last photo of the sunset was taken near my home in southern California in July 2017.

Thursday’s Special – Fall

Paula at Lost in Translation: The theme for this Thursday’s Special – Fall

Portland, Oregon is a place where I always want to come back during the fall season. The foileage around the fall season is magical and dramatic. The colors of the trees can change within days. It is a lovely sight to behold.

We went to St. John Cathedral Park last Sunday. The sky was high with trailing clouds. Many families took advantage of the warm weather, have kids running around the park in this leisure afternoon. One person was making huge bubbles to entertain the kids.

We made it to Sauvie Island and baby Autumn had the first pumpkin patch outing.

Tuesday Photo Challenge – Bird

My dear friends,

Just want to let you know that I dropped my laptop and messed up the wires, the screen is cracked, and the snaps are off. The pointer goes wild and is uncontrollable. Right now my laptop is flipped open, but I can’t close it without cracking it further. I’m in Portland, Oregon and will be going back to southern California on Saturday, October 21. I’ll wait to have it fixed or get a new laptop. I don’t know how to carry my laptop on the plane. If I’m lack of communication with you, please blame my computer!!!

I’m not able to search my archives for bird photos. It is with great effort that I use steady hands to find one seagulls photo from our trip to Key West. There are other bird photos, but won’t be able to post them.
