Nancy’s Photo a Week prompt is Reflection this week, and I immediately thought of the photos I took at the Pacific Design Center last Friday. The architecture and reflections there are stunning. Everywhere you look, you’ll find a treat for the eyes.
Nancy Merrill posted this challenge a couple of weeks ago. I had to sit with it, for it’s a swan song to scenery from my former homeward commute (my office changed locations).
It was an evening with especially dramatic skies.
Check out my newest experiment in my windowsill garden!
Maybe you’ve tried this with carrot or lettuce ends — have you ever tried Brussels Sprouts?

The same view, seven years apart. The trees have grown!
This is not really a “photo-as-art” post, bear with me.
Learned something new. Origami box made from six 3×3” papers.
Envisioning new usage for the reject day job pattern printouts.
Hat tip to @embellish_or_perish for finding origami octahedrons at a charity shop and making me curious!

This week’s challenge was to post a still photo showing motion.
I shot this on the east coast of Florida on my 2014 road trip.
I’ve driven across the US many times and in the process I’ve developed some photographic obsessions.
This is one I captured in Cisco, TX.
See the fingerprints in the lower left?
I used the photo as reference for this pastel:
Do you have road trip obsessions?
Seen on a recent walk in the neighborhood:
With this week’s theme of water, I offer some images from my On the Edge US series.
This was a project tied to a road trip that I took in 2014, circumnavigating the US as close to the edge of the contiguous 48 states as I could get on US highways and Interstates.
Each “edge” has an ocean, a gulf, or lakes/ rivers.
I applied the watercolor look to my photographs using the Waterlogue app.
There are smart device and a desktop versions available.
