Positive Place (a Photo Tag)

Normally, I am where good tags go to die a slow and painful death but I was tagged by the beautiful and vivacious Devyl Gyrl over at www.devylgyrl.com and really, who could resist her?

Here are the rules:

  1. Go to your picture files
  2. Go to your 6th folder.
  3. Go to your 6th picture.
  4. Tell us about it.
  5. Tag 6 friends to do the same.

Without further ado I give you…(drumroll please)

Positive Place

About¬† 2 weeks ago, the sky looked like it was on fire – it was absolutely amazing. I grabbed my camera and walked down to the end of the street to the Boys and Girls Club Parking lot (aptly named “Positive Place”) and started shooting. This is one in a series of approximately 15 taken at different angles and from different locations on the block. By far, this was one of my favorite shots in the series because of the inclusion of the street sign.

Will spare you all the agony of being tagged but would challenge you all to do the same and post a link to your blog here. I’d love to see your photos.

Grey Sky Morning

So you sailed away, Into a grey sky morning
Now I’m here to stay, Love can be so boring
Nothing’s quite the same now…

Yesterday was a beautiful day in Martinez, CA. After spending the good portion of my morning harvesting and crushing grapes for this year’s harvest, running the usual errands and tending to some household chores, I grabbed my camera and headed to the Martinez Marina and Shoreline Park. It’s amazing the beauty you can find in your every day surroundings if you just open your eyes.

The following are a few of the photographs taken during my walk.
