What Do You See?

Clouds always amaze me. Their beauty is illuminating, along with the vision/s I might see within them.

I love what I saw in this cloud. I turned my head sideways, and the image had me smiling.

Cloud art intrigues and amazes me!

I wish all of you a good week.

Sunset, Shabbat

It is Friday morning, which means Shabbat begins at sunset tonight.

Here are four photos taken last night, during sunset.

The first two looked somewhat ominous with those dark clouds. Then within seconds, the clouds moved on, and the illuminations that remained were pastel-toned beauties, with soft grey tones within the pinks and lavenders.
I appreciate all of nature’s sky scenes, darkness, lightness, sunsets, and sunrises. Sunsets appear distinctly different each day, and so do sunrises.

I wish all of you peace and joy this weekend. For those who celebrate, Shabbat Shalom!

Train From Freeway

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.
