Some Leaves, a Bird, Snow Falling, and a Flag

"Rust" 1, 2, 3, 4
West Odessa, Texas

Some leaves, a bird, snow falling, and a flag. Rust is inevitable. Being unhappy over it is not. (So says this creaky 50 year old.)

So long, 2009.

Gifts Opened

"Gifts Opened" 1, 2, 3, 4
December 23, 2009
West Odessa, Texas

On Christmas Eve, I spent the rainy afternoon meandering, as I frequently do, around West Odessa. My mom tells me that since I was a little girl I would point out to her little vignettes that I'd notice. I still see them, even hunting for them now, camera in hand. And I'm still pointing them out to her, even though we are miles and miles apart. She is a sweet and faithful reader of my blog. Hi Mom!

With Deepest Affection

"With Deepest Affection" 1, 2, 3 (click on any to see larger)
Multiple locations, multiple dates, multiple beauties

If I pull this off -- that is, posting these pictures of women I love, shot with things they love -- without getting deep into hot water, it will be a miracle. I am brazen!

Beauty #1 taken with the sign that hung many years on her parent's store in a small Texas farm town.
Beauty #2 taken with her very own oil field dog house -- quite the nab -- now used for horse tack storage.
Beauty #3 taken while sitting among wildflowers out in the sun, always her favorite place to be.
