Umbrella sky

It would appear that Punxsutawney Phil is wrong this year. I mowed my lawn yesterday … in shorts! Today, the weather continues its blue streak.

B&W photo challenge, day 4

I am, shall we say, a regular at Starbucks. I leave home a little early so I can pause on the way to work and enjoy my drink there.1 When the weather is nice,2 I’ll sip my drink outside, under the umbrellas, watching everyone else scurry in and out.

Sitting outside one day,3 I glanced up at umbrella pole and saw this. Too cool!4


  1. Going through the Starbucks drive-through is a waste of money. (Yeah, yeah. I hear you saying Starbucks, in general, is a waste of money… (I think my footnotes need footnotes like my parentheticals need parentheticals)) Starbucks is priced for the in-store experience. As in, go inside and enjoy it on-site. So I do. 
  2. As it nearly always is in Oregon… 
  3. Yup. I took this picture during a lunchtime visit. I didn’t say I only visit Starbucks in the morning. ;-) 
  4. I originally posted this picture here, with just a little color. Actually, I think the color adds.

Lunchtime Diversion, Part I

I’m not entirely thrilled with this picture, but I do find the subject interesting.1 I think this can be done much better.2 Stay tuned… ;-)


  1. I’ve pondered it many mornings and noons. 
  2. Maybe I needed some more caffeine. ;-)
