Photography Friday: Abstract Orange

I must not take a lot of photos incorporating the color orange in my day-to-day. In general I’m really not a fan of the shade, so wondering if orange things just don’t catch my eye that often (kind of the opposite of how I go gaga over purple objects). Today’s photo challenge asks us to share…

My New St. Francis Statue – Plus, Vote On A Color!!!!

By now, most of you know that I really love St. Francis. Ever since visiting Assisi a few years ago, largely on a whim, I’ve been coming to terms with an ever-growing affinity for the 12th/13th century friar. He’s grown to be something of a hero to me. As a non-Catholic (indeed, I’m not even Christian), I…

Photography Friday! Week 3 – Mostly Kitties

Lots of drama this week, but I don’t feel like talking about it here, honestly. Instead, I’m going to share photos of my cats – yay! OK, and some other stuff. On Saturday morning, The Man and I cleaned the house, and I washed all of my clothes. Izzy helped: Later that day, I picked…

Hanging Out in Jackson Square

I’ve been meaning to post these photos for awhile now. These were all taken in Jackson Square, New Orleans, on January 8th, 2012. The Man and I went down to the French Quarter on our bikes to check out the college football crowd and enjoy the gorgeous weather. While we were in the area, we…
