Shapes, Colors, and Things to Do

Even though I've struggled with discomfort in my feet all summer, time has passed quickly. Life is still full of marvels! I have many photos I've never shared here, so five miscellaneous topics will help catch up on posting them. That many gives plenty of blog hop opportunities, starting with Willy Nilly Friday.

1. Lights inside a bank looked like a face to me!

Black and White Weekend
2. In contrast to the monochrome image, here is one full of colors. 

Orange You Glad and Skywatch Friday
3. Tomorrow is the annual Route 11 Yard Crawl extending the length of Shenandoah County plus some of the adjoining counties. Vendors started setting up yesterday. We expect heavy traffic on U.S. 11, so if you are in a hurry, stay on I-81!

4. Getaway is the topic for My Town Shootout this week.  People in my area are fortunate in that Shenandoah National Park is nearby, and it makes a dramatic place to escape to.

Also Sharing with Weekend Reflections
Once in a while I see something jarring in that beautiful park, like the trash that someone left in this scene. People should know better!

5. Not far from there I followed a sign for Produce. Like many other vegetable stands in the Shenandoah Valley, they offer an honor system when no one is there to staff the market. 

"Our Price List is Up. Just leave Your Money." (Signs, Signs)
The proprietor was there yesterday, however. And he seemed to be busy.

Have fun this weekend!


  1. Nice shots. I like those colourful flags.

  2. Hello, love the sky shots. The flag and sky capture is beautiful. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Saturday, enjoy your weekend!

  3. Love the detail in your black and white shot! If that's a face, I don't think it's very happy ;)

  4. I agree about the face. A sad face it is! Cool observation :)

  5. Nice collection of photos. It's refreshing to see the honor system being used at the produce stand.

  6. Nice shots! The reflection photo is excellent and I love the flag photo.

  7. That yard sale crawl must be fun! And you are lucky to have that beautiful park in your "neighborhood....

  8. Your flags against the blue sky are very cheerful.

  9. Just love those flags so colourful, and the vegetables look good to.

    All the best Jan

  10. Great pictures Linda! Love the colorful banner and the lights DO look like a face! Thank you so much for linking up! Hope to see you tomorrow! 😊
