Views of the Neighborhood – Potporri

This week I thought I would show you some photos that were taken with the hopes of being a series that would be good for a Views of the Neighborhood feature. Well, they just didn’t pan out so if you will bear with me I present them as stand alone shots. I hope you like them

I was going to do a series of gull and pelican “swooping” over the crossover. The pelicans never showed up.

I wanted a series of funny things people sculpt or write in the sand. Here is a good octopus.

Here is a Blue Heron flying past our backyard. I think he was scoping the place out for lunch.

I really like this one. “I love you…uh what was your name again?”

We had a little seaweed and someone figured it would make a good monument.

This is the kind of maintenance needed for the beach. This one is for Dan AntionViews of the Neighborhood

Here is a shot of Peggy doing her morning “Beg the fisherperson for a tidbit,” routine.

I always seem to be drawn to sky and sea photos. Here is a morning with clouds.

I’ll leave you with a morning before the rain.

  9. Wonderful collection of loose photos. I like the morning with clouds because of the lone person out there. It could be a book cover.

  11. Thanks for the machinery shot, John. That cold be my retirement job, for sure.

    Peggy looks like she’d be pretty hard to resist.

    As for that heart, maybe they broke up. We had a heart painted on the Canal Path here for years – “Ken loves Jen” Then one year, we noticed that big Xs had been added over the names.

  14. Sorry the idea didn’t pan out, John. But I really enjoyed the pictures (especially the pretty blue waves). Good to know Peggy still has her game on. πŸ˜‰
    I confess, I liked the big beach trucks too… Sounds like they’re visiting next door… but with hammers added to the rest of the noise.
    Kirin Ichiban to the rescue. Hugs.

  22. Wonderful photos, John, and it was great to see Peggy again. We’ve moved from our house by the lake and I miss our herons and other lake wildlife.
