Turtle Thursday – Leaf Me Alone – Guest – Photography


In testing a new lens toy through a not-so-clean glass storm door, I found this dove sheltering on the ground from a pretty good breeze, covered by a leaf.  The dove didn’t seem to mind, staying there with the leaf on his back for quite some time.

Bali Blue Moon Whole Bean Coffee – Food Review – Trader Joe’s


TJ_BaliBlueMoonCoffeeIf you’re the only coffee drinker in the house, stick your nose in the can for about 10 seconds each morning for a pleasant wake up.  This is one of the best smelling coffees.  There’s a brief hint of chocolate when first opened.  After that there’s a very nice aroma that actually smells like coffee and not burnt toast.  That aroma continues with each opening until the can is emptied.



Cafe Pajaro Whole Bean Coffee – Food Review – Trader Joe’s


TJ_PajaroCoffeeIf you like a Starbucks style coffee, you’ll like this more.  The can says extra dark roast.  That it surely is!


Weekly Photo Challenge – Gift Shoppe – Treat – Photography

Gift Shoppe

Gift Shoppe

A treat because:

  • It’s so cute
  • It’s seasonal
  • It’s so cute, it could be a gift shoppe
  • It’s not so cute that it could be a ye olde gift shoppe
  • It’s taken with my new-2-me mirrorless (MILC) camera (eBay)
  • It’s taken with my new-2-me lens (Goodwill)
  • It’s far from perfect, so I have something to learn about my new-2-me things
