It appears that I don’t do much with white.  I need to work on that.  Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge this week is all about white and purple.  I found some of the latter, and framed it in the former.  So…

This is my white around purple. 🙂

Did I tell you she's hot in purple?

Thanks for stopping by.


Back again for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge.  Another excellent adventure. 🙂

house 8

I got in my car yesterday and took a few shots of my neighborhood.  I live between the bay and the ocean and the houses reflect that “beachy” quality.  There are so many more that are worth taking a look at, and maybe someone will hold another “Houses” challenge.  Then I’ll get back in my car and scope out more of the neighborhood.  Til then…

I appreciate your visits and hope you’ll be back.


Everyone, please.  Take your seats.

This week, Cee is asking for a selection of seatings.  I stuck close to home today with my collection, except for the last shot, which was taken at a mini-mall in Cape May, NJ.  It just looked like a comfortable place for someone, who’s not into malling, to sit and wait while the true shopper digs in.

Oh, and a special note to my friend Dawn, at Lingeringvisions.  Yes, darlin’, there is wine in them thar drawers :-).

Welcome to my humble home…

A quick click on the icon below will get you to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge.  There’s extra seating there.


Thanks for stopping by.  It’s always good seeing you.


We didn’t get hammered by snow this winter like we’ve had in years past.  Sadly however, much of the east coast is getting pummeled by rain and high winds.  I guess we’re lucky that we didn’t get both, but whoa!  I am waterlogged!  Here’s a peek into this winter’s smidge of snow.  Even a little snow can be enchanting.

If you feel so inclined, zoom in on the trees and find the deer.  I didn’t know they were there until after I took the photo.  If you’ve never been to Valley Forge in the winter, you’re missing something beautiful.  And if you haven’t been to Cee’s blog site, you also don’t know what you’re missin’.  Click the icon to see more of winter and Cee’s fabulous fotos.



Little by little, it’s getting here.  Spring!  I can tell by the pinwheels on the lawn.  What?  Well I don’t know if this is an official sign of spring, but, when someone decides it’s time to put these colorful lawn decorations out, I’m guessing they’re telling us spring is just around the corner.  When I saw this a month ago, I was thrilled.  Spring!  Yahoo! Finally!

Now, which corner was it that spring was around?

Mother Nature needs to get with it!  She’s either sleeping on the job, or old man winter has her held captive.  The news people threatened us with frost last night, and told everyone to bring in their plants.  I don’t know who told them they make the rules, but I wore capris and a short-sleeved t-shirt today (and a soft, warm sweatshirt over the top of it all).  Yes. I’m stubborn.

Just down the street from this house is a business district that also welcomes the season in with giant flower pots, painted by local artists.  They’ve been doing this for some time now, so the pots are a bit worst for wear, but still – SPRING!  There were too many for one gallery, so bear with me. I posted two. 😀


I hope you’re enjoying your spring, if spring is what you’re having.  If not, I hope this brought a little sunshine into your day.  Please click on the icon below and stop over at Cee’s blog for a look at more of the spring season.


Thanks for visiting!


Today, while my two young charges were attending reading hour at the Cherry Hill Library, I skulked out onto the floor to capture a few signs hawking books.  What better sign can you find!

Take note of the Elephant and Piggie sign.  If you have small children or grandchildren, go to your local library and pick one or more of these up.  They are hysterical and adorable.  Oh, by Mo Willems (no I didn’t leave out the ‘i” and mistype the “a”.  It really is  Willems.:-). )

And, speaking of my charges, this little guy is wearing a sign as well.

I had to include the cute little pouty lips.

Since we had a torrential downpour this morning, I put my bike ride off til I got home.  I didn’t really overwhelm you with too many fun fotos up top, so I thought I’d take my camera on my ride and point and click in the park.  I was amazed at the number of signs I came across.  These are just some.



This is actually the second stop sign on my route.  I thought the hydrant gave it a little more class. 🙂

Then comes the stop sign warning – telling you that a stop sign is up ahead.  HUH? (if you look way down the road a piece, you’ll see the actual stop sign this sign is referring to.  WHAT?

One Way

Believe it or not, there was another Do Not Enter sign to the right.  Can you say Overkill?

Slow Down!

This sign is suppose to register your speed.  I guess I wasnt’ going all that fast.  I’m working on it!



A little retro here.  And there really is a pay phone under this sign.  It’s seen better days, but it works!

Road Closed

Do you think they want you to stay out?

A few more rules and regs before leaving the park.  And none too soon.  This was a sign that it was time for me to go home!!!!

This one’s a little blurry and understandably so.  I was shaking in my boots when I shot this.  I’m a little leery of these guys.  It all started back in 1970, in the San Fransisco Bay area.  But that’s another story for another day.

Please click on the cute little critter below to see other entries @ Ceephotography.comThis guy doesn’t freak me out – as much. 🙂


Hope you had a little fun.

Thanks for stopping by.  I appreciate each and every visit.


Cee, @ ceephotography.com has presented yet another challenge. Bridges.  I’m afraid I’ve posted most of my bridges.   So I guess I’m not rising to the occasion  and I need to do more pointing and clicking  and maybe the next time some says “bridges” I’ll be ready.  But for now, here’s what’s left of my bridge crossings.   Maybe less is more.  🙂

Since I don’t have enough bridge shots to fill a thimble, maybe you could stop by Cee’s to get a look at what others have to share.  Thanks.  And thanks for stopping by, browsing, liking, and commenting.  As has been the custom, click on the cute little icon below and you’ll be on your way to Cee’s.



“There are so many paths.”

Yup, there are.”

“Do you know which to choose?”

“Well.  I’d think that would be up to the individual.”

“What’s at the end of each path?”

“I’ve heard they’re all very different.”

“Have you taken any of these?”


“How did you know which one you wanted to walk down?”

“It was easy.”

“So.  How did you decide?”

“Well, I knew that down one path I’d find Strength. Down another, Hope. “

“And the others?”

“Wisdom, Knowledge, Opportunity, Love.  The list is long.”

“Are they all good paths?”

“No.  There’s Hate, Darkness, Dispair.”

“But how?  How did you know which to choose.”

”  It may sound strange, and a little bit scary, but it was something I felt.  I had a choice, and I just knew I didn’t want Hate, Darkness, or Dispair.  Any one of the other paths meant a good future for me.  I could feel myself being drawn to the goodness.  From there, it was easy.”

We’ve been challenged with stairs and steps this week and Cee @ ceephotography.com has definitely stepped it up with this theme.  I’m way behind with posting and picturing, so I’ll just get on with it.  Sit back and relax.   No climbing necessary.

The last shot was some of what Hurricane Sandy destroyed.  Sadly, there is still a lot of work to be done.   When the stairs are replaced, I’ll be sure to get a shot of them.  Meanwhile, click on the icon below to visit Cee’s blog and check out more interesting stair/step photos.



It always thrills me to see a new challenge pop up in my inbox.  I’m one of those people that needs a nudge and that’s what these things do for me.  Aside from the fact that I get to browse and visit other blogs which gives me the opportunity to live and learn, I get the push I need to get out there and broaden my photographic horizons.   I have a lot of livin’ and a whole lot of learnin’ to do.  Apparently I don’t take too many road pictures, so there’s work to be done.  In the meantime…

OK.  So the road at the shore is missing, but it’s there.  I promise.  Under all the rain that fell not too long ago.  And my husband took that shot.  Also, the last photo of our house, well, I have to give my son credit for that shot.  See what I mean.  Work to be done.
