Never a Cliche 

I find that nothing compares with God’s creative work in nature when it comes to ambience. A place to reflect or enjoying conversation with friends gives you a moment to pause in awe!

Photo Friday Theme – Road Trip

A few months ago Kim and Diane (Thelma and Louise) took a road trip through the Florida Keys.

We were armed with our cameras, map and a taste for adventure…. or was that Key Lime Pie!

Regardless, here are a few of the fun kitschy images I took along the way.

Love the Keys!

My Favorite Things… to Photograph

DSC_0100_2 DSC_0004 Rue

Raindrops on roses, a puppy or kitten
Turquoise waters with that I am smitten
Beautiful gardens that summertime brings
These are a few of my favorite things

Cream colored ponies and crisp apple streudels
Sculptures and paintings and things that I doodle
Picturesque landscapes that make me sing
These are a few of my favorite things

Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes
Portraits with beautiful eyes and eyelashes
Silver white winters that melt into springs
These are a few of my favorite things

When it’s too dark
When I’m rained out
When I’m feeling sad
I simply remember my favorite things
And then I don’t feel so bad


This classic is a true masterpiece…

“My Favorite Things” from the 1965 film version of THE SOUND OF MUSIC by Rodgers and Hammerstein

Round and Round

carousel horse

Carousel” by Johnny Wheeler

Brightly painted horses prance on poles made out of brass

The jumpers and the standers with their eyes made out of glass

A blur of colored horses as the carousel gains speed

As little girls and boys sit tall Upon their wooden steed.
