Weekend Photo Trio




This is my cousin's dog Daisy. She's a good old girl with a bit of arthritis and a tendency to sit with her mouth open. She is lovable and loving and will kiss you a million times. She loves children and is incredibly gentle and patient.





Summer is a perfect time for outdoor birthday parties, bringing out the convertible, and playing in the yard. These shots were taken at the 1st Birthday of one of my granddaughter's friends. Yes, they have an amazing yard.




I just love the symmetry of these shadows.

Have a great weekend and Happy Father's Day to all the Dads and Grandads and Single Moms

Oh my god, that backyard. I mean, all the photos are adorable, but my god, that backyard... (Why yes, I'm a city dweller, how could you tell?)

Love the camera critter, and the shadows are great, but that back yard makes me realize mine isn't as big as I always thought it was.
Good work, Dianne.

Awww I love Daisy. She does indeed look lovable.

Daisy is an old friend, always around to relax with friends, Loyal and loving, we can only wish that all the people we know could be as nice to us as Daisy is...

The backyard is so kid friendly, the soft grass perfect for active kids - grass burns to the little ones don't hurt at all!

The lights on the shopping area leave great shadows! This place looks as if may have been an old Ruby Tuesday restaurant abandoned to new retailers - and if so, a great reuse and rebirth for all customers!

Cute little doggie!
I must say I don't think my first car was this cute. It was red but not this cute. :)
Your shadows are indeed perfect with their symmetry.Nice catch.
I have a really big yard myself but mine is not anywhere near as green and lush. That takes work. :)
You have a great weekend too!

The shadows are symmetrical indeed!

I ONCE HAD A SHADOW

I once had a shadow—or did she have me?
My shadow and I could never agree.
I would say something, she’d say the reverse;
Our arguments flared, my lips I would purse,
Refusing to speak to her anymore—
So my shadow got up and marched out the door!
I have not seen her from that day to this—
That’s one stubborn shadow I surely don’t miss!

"...with a bit of arthritis and has a tendency to sit with her mouth open'-you could be describing me!
Great set of shots. The little ones look like they are having lots of fun.
