given my love for photography, i can rarely drive down a street without noticing the perfect backdrop for pictures -- and then obsessing about when and how to get back there to take the actual pictures - how many times i've said "oooh, i wish i had my camera!" this turquoise wall was one of my favorites in my hometown. i am happy i took my nieces to this building when i did because sadly, on my visit home this time, i noticed that my vacant turquoise building has now been painted a dreary gray. i will now have to obsess about where to take the next batch of pictures.
...and on that same day, this old swing at the end of a neighbor's lakeside yard was just too inviting to not stop and take a few photos..but i didn't know these neighbors, so the girls, being girls, were "mortified" that i just popped on in this neighbors yard...but come on, you can see in the distance of one of the pictures just how far the swing is from the house -- so really, unless they really didn't want others, or strangers like us, to have a seat and take a leisurely swing, they would have put it up by there own patio. correct? so sit down and smile silly girls -- and that they did!
