The Sunday Traveler’s Summer Wrapup


Summer is wrapping up here in the Sunday Traveler’s corner of the world. Summer, slipping through my fingers, and through my mind’s eye. Only the picture in mind is of days and days of preparing for a move, the move, and the unpacking from the move; plus a few other assorted and sundry items of family business that seem to have gobbled up any thought of lazing about on a beach. The photo above was taken in Sayulita, Mexico, where I truly do remember lazing about and eating fish tacos in one of those chairs. A trip that began with last minute flight changes, running through airports to make connections, to finally get to our destination in Mexico….with the plane landing on the wrong runway. Aye chihuahua! More on that next week. But, as is our way, we’ve saved the best for last, and will take our summer vacation in the fall as we usually do, when we return to another tropical setting, a place that has our hearts wrapped around its aloha.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Dialogue at The Museum



“Dialogue | The Daily Post//

// //

Dialogue is an engaging conversational exchange.

When it comes to photography, dialogue can be perceived as a consensual interaction between two images.

Placed next to each other, each photograph opens up to meanings that weren’t there when viewed alone.

Each composition reveals the photographer’s specific sensitivity to certain content or visual elements. ” ~Frederic Biver

Phoneography Challenge; Goodbye to Picket Fences


I took one last walk in the old neighborhood last Thursday before we moved on Friday. It was the bucolic little suburban neighborhood out on the edge of Northern California’s Central Valley country; a pretty good combination for me. But both my husband and I were ready for our move and change in living environment. Back to San Francisco’s East Bay and “civilization”, a fantastic vibrant life style; and we’ve moved back to apartment living, downsizing tremendously.  I’m sure I’ll have more to say about this later.  I’m eager to get out there with my camera….right after I unpack a few more boxes.
