Train From Freeway

Neither a wise man nor a brave man lies down on the tracks of history to wait for the train of the future to run over him. -Dwight D. Eisenhower

Moon Between

This very grainy photo was taken on May 26th. The full moon was nestled between two enormous clouds. I liked the brilliance of it, illuminating the bottom cloud’s edges.

Speaking of evening, Shabbat begins tonight. For those who celebrate, Shabbat Shalom.

I wish everyone a wonderful weekend.

Thank you for visiting. -Lorri

Five From Spokane

These photos were taken in Spokane, Washington. All of the photos, but the last one were taken from a cable car/gondola.

Going up to where the top of the waterfalls are.

You can see the bottom of the falls in this photo. The tower on the right, is part of the County Courthouse.

I loved the leaves and flowers against the greenness in this capture.

Thank you for visiting. I hope your week is going well.

Five Taken on Road trip

It has been a busy few days. I was on a three-day road trip with my family. We drove to Spokane, Washington. It was a special occasion. My granddaughter celebrated her 14th birthday. She wanted to go there to the malls, and to wander within antique stores and vintage shops, to find things for her bedroom.

All of my photos were taken from the car. I was a passenger.

I love silos. There is something about them that brings me a sense of peace. Maybe it is a combination of the farmland and its surroundings. I don’t really know, but there are moments we don’t need to necessarily understand the feelings we have.

This is another calming scene. I loved the wind-blocking trees to the right of the lake.

I loved how serene this setting looked from the car window. I saw it ahead of time, and was able to capture it just as we passed by.

One more capture of trees and a lake. I could feel the aura that the trees set off, as they called to me to capture

them, as a memory.

It was a lovely few days. It was wonderful to be a part of my granddaughter’s birthday weekend away. Once we returned home, on Sunday afternoon, we celebrated again, with other family members. Cake and presents were a part of it, of course.

She is such a caring and loving individual. I love the the person she has become so far, and cannot wait to see how she grows in character, in future years. She brings me joy, and love, and I am so grateful for all she does for me. I am blessed.

Thank you for visiting. I hope you have a lovely week.

Four More Scenes

Here are four more photos from the Mother’s Day outing with my family. The lavender farm is not only a beautiful and serene place to spend some time, but also there are some nostalgic illuminations within the acreage.

To me, this illuminated nostalgia, and I thought it was a lovely setting.

So many plants all around, so little time. Lol. I totally enjoyed all of it.

I loved the image above, with the shed and the old truck. I adored the green shutters against the wood exterior.

The gardens were lovely. This particular setting was a very minute, minuscule portion of the varieties of lavender plants that were on sale, in various sized pots. I liked the sign against the fence posts.

My father would have loved wandering through the fields. Happy 106th Birthday, dad. I love and miss you. You blessed my life with your short 45-years in this realm.

Thank you for visiting. Have a lovely day. Be well, be safe.
