Foto Finish --- Something Blue

This week's Foto Finish assignment is Something Blue.  I could have taken a picture of my stash, or even of my closet & found lots and lots of blue...but THIS is my favorite blue thing!  My 2006 Chevy HHR - aka "Hank Hoo-Ray".  This was shot at a rest area in New Mexico I believe, during the solo roadtrip I took in 2007, traveling from So. California to Arizona, & Missouri, then up across the north to Idaho & back home again. 
To post your own "blue something", or to see what blue stuff others have posted, head on over to Cat Patches!

Have a great week!

Foto Finish --- Something New

It's time for Foto Finish!
This week our topic is "Something New"
(have you noticed a theme for this month?).

I was thinking that since my
"Something Old"
for last week was my Dad,
perhaps my
"Something New"
for this week should be a baby.
But, I didn't happen across any babies this week.

So I thought again
(and YES, it was a bit painful!!)
and decided I would take a picture of the
NEWEST thing in my house.

For your viewing pleasure...

My new dryer's knob!
I tried to get a shot of the whole dryer,
with newly dried towels in it,
but the lighting wasn't cooperating.

And there you have it ~

To see more new somethings,
or to share something new of your own,
pop on over to Cat Patches
and join in on the fun!!

Have a fabulous Father's Day weekend!

Foto Finish --- Something Old

This week our Foto Finish topic is "Something Old".
I've been pondering on it all week long.
I thought about digging out some old coins,
or taking a new picture of the first quilt that I designed.
I finally decided on this.
He's not quite old enough to be an "antique".
(Isn't that 100 years old?)
But he's definitely old enough to be a "collectible"!

This picture was taken 2 years ago,
when Dad was only 92.
He turned 94 in May & is still doing pretty darned good!
And he still isn't afraid of being silly -
like "wearing" a flamingo on his head!

For more "Something Old" photos,
hop on over to Cat Patches & enjoy!

Foto Finish --- Water

I missed out on last week's Foto Finish - Gardens.  I took some pictures of my friends' garden, then, before downloading them, I formatted my memory card!  Sheesh.

Anyway, here's my entry for WATER.
It was taken on a beautiful day in San Diego, California,
on April 5th, 2011.

I really like the movement in the water
& the reflection on the side of the boat.
I'm ready to go out on the water again!

Have a wonderful week!!
