Watching kids has its advantages. You get to play with toys. And, you get lots of photo ops. This is some kind of light up block thingy that is very cool in color. But since this is black and white, I will save the color pic for another post. My little buddy said we should shut the lights and take a pic. Ok. So the ideas are not always mine. He just happened to make this brilliant suggestion on the day that Cee posted this challenge. (I’m just a day late and a dollar short with the post, as usual.) This is the B&W version (or as my little buddy says, “virgin”. (He keeps me in giggles.) And this is a bowl of kiwi and one loan apple. Time for a supermarket road trip! This had a little Tooncamera app enhancement. (Thanks for the turn on to the app, Allan.)

I’m obsessed with grapevine wreaths lately. There is a giant peace sign wreath a few towns over, hanging outside the window of a beauty salon. I WANT THAT THING! Today I got a coupon for 55% off anything in A. C. Moore. I will use it and I WILL figure out how to make one.
This is not that, and I’m not even sure grapevine is wood. But I’m certain someone will let me know if I’ve erred in some way. I just thought it was pleasing to the eye.
Stop by and visit Cee’s blog. You’ll find some amazing photos there.
TOYS – For kids AND adults. Welcome to our brave new world. Where a five year old shows me how to call up the remote for his tv on his kindle. Where I sit in the a.m. with coffee in one hand, iPad in the other. Where Instagram and #100happydays meets #foundmomo. Where my little buddy taps and clicks to view Ironman, Batman, Spider-Man and more. Where I peruse blogs and try to improve my Words with Friends skills. One of today’s “toys” in B&W.

THANKS FOR THE VISIT.
A visit from family. A trip to the Philadelphia Zoo. A fabulous, warm, autumn day. And a chocolate ice cream cone. These all made for an incredibly fun Saturday.
The bears have their own waterfall. If it were me living there, I’d be frolicking in that pool. It was toasty yesterday.
A look at the bear’s digs from the other side of the glass.

A web of wires
Dangling, tangling and,
Far away in the distance,
I see the puffiness of the clouds,
The wonder of the sky,
The unreachable, unbelievable,
The unfathomable number of miles and miles.
Somewhere in the distance.

“Excuse me while I kiss the sky.”
A Sunday spent window shopping with a friend, I pass by this quaint little store and spot the most amazing bench. Why amazing? Well, it’s wood and metal and very Americana. My husband has a collection of wooden, metal, and glass American flags, and I knew he would love this. So I took a photo, smiling to myself and being all proud of my find. Meanwhile, WHY DIDNT I ASK IF IT WAS FOR SALE?!?!?!?!

Now, If I had only thought to ask!

I missed the boat on Cee’s “BIG” black and white challenge, so I thought I’d jump on the “small” band wagon.
Birds looking small – dwarfed by their surroundings on Brigantine Beach.
Small boy looking smaller, also dwarfed by his surroundings in Atlantic City.
Lego motorcycles, small, because they just are.
The smallest of my owl collection (See RestlessJo? I wasn’t kidding.)
The doctor is in, but the small Mr. Potato Head glasses are out!

Spreading your branches
Reaching to caress the sky
You only kiss the clouds

Cee’s pretty much asked us to pick some random pics, so this is me, being random. A little all over the place, but I like to think of it as eclectic. 🙂

Pretty much true of everything, Conan.
I hope this is good random, for y’all. 😉
Phoenix being Phoenix – or any other feline.
It neeeeeeeds to be spring!
An old looking camera at one of my faves – Home Goods.
Mom making shadow puppets.
Self explanatory 😉
