SNOW IN THEM THAR HILLS

I’m sorry to have been MIA the last few days but events and weather got in the way. But this morning I managed to get in a nice three and a half mile walk and you got to go with me!

First up, two photos of the Olympic Mountains with fresh snow on them. Mr friend “Al Thewalker” told me that there was no snow on them Wednesday when he walked around Ebey Prairie. I suppose it’s a sign of things to come.

I thought I had found all the “scarecrows” around Coupeville but discovered one more. This 3D painting was in front of the Pacific Northwest Art School. It’s the “Evil Queen from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs”.

I discovered another juxtaposition with what appears to be a rose growing on a holly bush, hum?

I’m not into “still life” photography but this setting by the Windjammer Gallery and Custom Framing really caught my attention. I’m really pleased with how it came out and hope you enjoy it as well.

With that I’ll wrap up this week and move on to the weekend. I hope you have a great weekend as well and will come walk again with me next week.

AUTUMN FUCHSIA

I dodged yet another threatening morning with extremely heavy clouds and a storm on the way. It wasn’t a very long walk but I did find a few things to photograph along with another scarecrow.

At the entrance to the Coupeville Library I found “Ursula”, the main antagonist of Disney’s 1989 animated movie “The Little Mermaid”.

The “Curlew” was docked at the Coupeville Wharf. It looks like it may have been a crabbing boat but my friend “Al Thewalker” and I believe it is now a cruising yacht.

There are a number of beautiful “Burning Bushes” in town and this one with the dark leafed tree behind it made for some nice contrast.

Along the same lines of a photo I took the other day of the white berries in the autumn colored bush I spotted another juxtaposition. It seems odd to see a fuchsia blooming this time of year and it was mixed in with some autumn colors as well.

Like I often say to my retired friends, “Have a great Wednesday”, to everyone else “Happy Hump Day”!
