Chronologically Random Photographs

1. A year ago we visited Marie and Deborah in California. I took this picture from above the clouds on Mt. Wilson. 
Sharing with Skywatch Friday and Black and White Weekend.

2. Thank you, marigolds, for blooming and giving me a burst of color for Orange You Glad and Floral Friday.

3. I liked the way the signs are reflected in the puddle at Borden Lumber.

When life gives you rain, make photographs. When it gives you sunshine, make more photographs!

4. We were in West Virginia yesterday and I pulled into a parking lot so Frank could send a text on his phone. It's easy to lose your signal in the mountains. And it was raining.

5.  This is an old picture of the house where my mother grew up. It's in Riverside, Illinois. 


  1. That's a VERY solid looking lump of rock to find sticking out of the clouds ;)

  2. ...beautiful view from up top.
    ...marigolds are just happy to do their thing. need to swim to the ice machine.
    ...the motel and restaurant has seen better days.'s like my grandma's house.
    Thanks Linda for stopping by.

  3. Those waves look intense! I love seeing waves break by the water's edge, great photos. Thanks for the share, have a fantastic rest of your day. Keep up the posts.

  4. Love the first one! Very powerful...bold...

  5. Nice to see these photographs.
    Those flowers are such a wonderful colour.

    All the best Jan

  6. Marigolds are one of my favorite flowers. I like the reflection with the ice machine too.

  7. Love your first photo of the clouds.

  8. Lovely Marigolds. I like that photo of the "text stop." I looks - different - than my mind expects for a "motel-restaurant" space. I sure like West Virginia.

  9. Nice shots! I can't pick a favorite.

  10. I never would have recognized the first photo as being taken from atop Mt. Wilson. I used to hike the area a lot in my younger days. Wonderful photo!

  11. Wow !!! absolutely fantastic blog. I am very glad to have such useful information.
