photo safari

I was in the mood to get out


enjoy a photographic field trip around town


stalk historical homes on stately tree lined streets


it was raining so hard that I couldn't leave the car


the safety of my imaginary bush jeep


and narrowly avoided becoming lunch for some large elephantine house

You are REALLY remarkable, you know -
And tonight, strangely, when I loaded your blog an enormous beautiful photo of a field of something or other -- blurry appeared for a good few seconds before the actual blog text appeared. It was like a beautiful apparition!-

I enjoyed your rainy building safari!

Healing Woman said...

Your photos have sort of an ethereal quality about them. Who would have guessed that anyone could show such beauty through rain colored glasses!

Hugs,

What a great idea: a safari in the rain! I love these pictures; they present a familiar view in a very thought provoking way, and create a real mood. Terrific!
