Today's photo is for Sandy Crowe. Her funeral was held today, but Sandy was all about life. She packed an inexhaustible amount of life and love into 55 years. And she knew how to draw life in its fullest no matter what the circumstance. 'Nuff said. 365/2011
I really didn't want to go to see the death throes of a book store, but John had a gift card to Borders that would have gone to waste if he didn't use it. These men clearly have a passion for reading--one that I have shared for as long as I can remember. 365/2011
I don't remember the last time I saw a phone booth. I've often wondered where Superman would change. But there was one at our campground in Quebec province, and we saw a few as we drove around. Our friends who live there say they are increasingly scarce. 365/2011
We have been going to Trinity Collge carillon concerts every summer Wednesdays since 1979. Tonight was like none ever before. It was raining when we got there, so we sat in the cloister. Near the end, following the program, the carilloneur started to play "Somewhere Over the Rainbow." Just then, a double rainbow broke out over the city. In over 30 years, we have never seen anything like this. Later, after this one had faded, there was a second one. Just incredible! 365/2011
The old toys are best--the ones that engage a child's imagination. Today--in honor of his graduation from kindergarten--we gave Aidan a set of TinkerToys. His eyes lit up, and he immediately set to building. 365/2011
As I was exploring the Trinity College chapel before tonight's carillon concert, I came upon the Verger's Room, which has always been closed. In it were these three Renaissance style windows featuring portraits of Henry VIII & Cardinal Wolsey...but also some guy from the 1800s. The windows are stunning, and coming upon them in a dark, usually locked room made for a great sense of mystery. I could imagine this as the opening chapter in a fantasy novel. 365/2011
Here is John in his new spic and span Tilley hat. Ok...I know I'm stretching the theme big time, but I really like this picture of him, taken this afternoon after a quick paddle on Silver Lake here in town. It was the first time he'd worn the hat, which I gave him for Father's Day. 365/2011
...is to fill 52 themes, one a week for the year. Some weeks, maybe I'll try to find several photos to fit the themes. Others, I may spend more time trying to perfect one that seems best to represent the theme. Three years of a photo-a-day opened my eyes, now I want to hone my skills.
