Black & White & Color Photo Challenge

The Seattle Seahawks hosted the Atlanta Falcons for Monday Night Football last night. My husband won tickets through his work and we braved the cold and potential rain, that fortunately did not materialize despite the threatening sky! We had pretty good seats!

Based on the outcome of the contest, the black and white version accurately sums up our feelings and mood as we made our way home ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Better luck next time!

Black & White & Color, Photo Challenge

I am going to break my tradition of never posting pictures of myself today. This was a shot I uploaded to Instagram on a day where I ran without goals. No pace, no distance and no time recorded. Just a path and some good music, and even better weather!

This was one of my last runs in Tucson before heading back to Seattle and I was feeling the future pain of training in the wind, rain and cold!

So which version captures the feeling of freedom of running without limits?

Black & White & Color, Photo Challenge

Last night we went to a Meet Up Tucson group. The goal was to meet some of our new neighbors and, finally, start getting to know some people locally. We met up with the “off the couch gang” at a Zona 78, an Italian restaurant. I had this raspberry martini (to start!)

It was delicious and the company was great, we really did have a fun time! I got to thinking this morning about using the drink for this challenge, but wanted to take it a little further with some animation, so which do you prefer:

Roda’s “Critter Connection” Challenge, Day 13

I have gone back to a trip we took to the San Juan Islands and our stay at Friday Harbor to find some critters! I did take these photos while we were there in July, when it was warm and sunny. The only activity in my yard right now is of the slug variety. It really poured yesterday! I did find this one flower blooming near the back of the yard.

I tried to channel my inner Roda and “Be Still” however the rain started up again and I ย never did see anything stirring around this pretty bloom. I will try to keep an eye out (in between football games and the rain) to see if a humming bird might buzz by. In the meantime, please enjoy this bee that was hanging out near the lavender which is all over the San Juan Islands!
