Laika's Back!

A few months ago we looked after a little dog named Laika for a few days. She came back to visit us again!
She's a cutie...
...friendly and playful...
And she gets on well with Socks too.
I look forward to looking after her again. Visit Pets Forever and Camera Critters for more furry, friendly photos.

Seattle Waterfront

From a spring trip to Seattle, here are a couple of photos of the waterfront. I liked this railing.
The Ferris Wheel was new since last time we were there.
It's my entry for the Our World Tuesday and Blue Monday memes.

I promised I would move away from Garden of the Gods, so this is about as far as I can go. My notes indicate this old slide was taken near Arnhem (Holland) in 1976.
If you've got some old photos, link up to Vintage Weekly and join the fun!

Garden Skywatch

For this week's Skywatch Friday entry, here's one more photo from Garden of the Gods.
What do you see in that cloud? I see a galloping horse. I promise my next post will be from somewhere else!

GOG Rocks

From the same early-morning walk in Garden of the Gods as the last post, here are some of the rock formations for which the park is famous.
I'm sure you can see why I love this place and keep posting photos from it. I'm linking to Our World Tuesday as it's a favorite part of my world, and to Blue Monday for the clear blue skies.

Garden of the Gods Trails

Here are a couple of photos of walking trails in Garden of the Gods, a local city park.
I know I post a lot of photos from this area, but it is one of my favorite places to wander. And it's close to my office! I'm linking this post to Scenic Weekends.

Seattle Market Signs

Here are some of my favorite signs from the famous Public Market in Seattle, from our trip back in March. First, the famous sign on a clear day, from a different angle than usually seen.
And here are a couple of signs from the market itself - you can see how busy it was from the first photo.
Visit the Signs, Signs meme for more signs.

Aspen, Fall 1995

For a Vintage Weekly and Scenic Weekends post, I'm going back to the fall of 1995 when I was camping near the town of Aspen, Colorado. It's a scanned slide, and there are several more beauties to come from this trip.

New Lightning

I was finally able to get some lightning photos from this summer, and here's the first.
The orange light in the background is because the storm was towards Denver, so the city lights create that color in that part of the sky. It's not the cleanest because the photo is cropped, but it will have to do. It's for my favorite meme, Skywatch Friday.

Seattle Duck Ride

While we were in Seattle back in March we rode one of those amphibious ducks. They start on land, then go into one of the lakes.
I always like a city skyline seen from the water.
And the views of an old gasworks, now a park, are unusual.
Visit Our World Tuesday to see lots more interesting sights.

Winter Shadows & Reflections

Here are some leftover photos from last November, taken in a park next to a mall (I photographed while my wife shopped). The first is for Shadow Shot Sunday.
And here are some calm waters for Weekend Reflections.
I always love our cold blue winter skies, so I save some winter photos for the hot summer months.

On a recent hike up Stanley Canyon I liked the pattern these old contrails made above the pine trees.
It's my entry for Skywatch Friday.
