Patrolling the yard for Gilligan’s bombs, I had to stop to take some pictures.
According to my yearly practice, here are a few of my favorite pictures I posted here over the past year. A couple of these actually have people in them. Sadly, I took only one of these in the second half of the year, and that was July 4th. Cannon Beach accounts for 40% of these.
Having posted more than nine pictures to Instagram this year, my “top nine” actually might have some significance.
It’s clearly time to take more pictures…
The pics are from the following posts:
Daffodils in Circle Park.
Walking to meet Suzi after work so we can walk back home together, I passed these flowers blooming in a crack in the sidewalk.
After all, what’s the alternative?
Along my regular lunchtime longboard push, there’s this house with a patch of white flowers.
Driving by the airport, I noticed daisies growing on the bank across the street. I parked at the nearest spot and walked back, taking pictures along the way. I met up with Ashley and Mousse. We walked through Orenco Station, then back to Dawson Creek where I took a picture of my favorite grove of trees.
Biking through Dawson Creek park on the way home this evening, I noticed little white flowers all over the place. I hadn’t noticed them before.
Yesterday, Ashley, Heather and I went to Orenco for frozen yogurt. Mmm… We walked to look closer at the construction near the MAX station and inspect the crane. Walking back, we paused to enjoy the blossoms on the trees.
Saturday evening, I went on a bike ride to end the day. On the way back, I stopped at some favorite spots to take some pictures.
I like riding a bike because it’s so easy to take a quick detour. I can take a picture or two, enjoy a chilly beverage, pick handfuls of blackberries growing along the path, or just notice the view. I did all today.
May your detours be as enjoyable as mine. :-)
