Red Brick and Bare Limbs ...

... are two of my favorite things.



I noticed this just as the red light was turning green so I shot it over my shoulder through the car window. I had to straighten it a bit in editing and the composition is not my finest work but I like it none the less.

I hope I'm back to regular posts now. I had a fall down the driveway on my first day out after my flu/plague/brain tumor was better so I'm just a big blob of bruises but I'm trying.

I think 2010 heard me talking smack about it and told 2011 to kick my ass.

Don't worry, your design is great -and you must be super balanced woman to take this pic over your shoulder from a car window!!
Enjoy your weekend!

I think this turned out fine! Glad to hear you are starting to feel better after your fall. And the flu crud. I got a real kick out of your last sentence in the post!

Enjoy your weekend, Dianne!
