the weekend in a few pictures
dragon boat races on saturday and a meandering macro, overcast sunday. then later sunday a marathon of 'pillars of the earth' series on demand with my nephew. watching the dragon boat races was a lot of fun - it was the first time the city has held them and i enjoyed watching the teams. next time i need a pass were i can get close to where all the boats were docked.
the pugs got a bath saturday and lizzie was hyper excited to be all clean and pretty. this is my brother playing with her.
the wind hampered the macro morning - but i did get to explore some things that i typically don't shoot like the lichen.

my brother does have gorgeous eyes - i agree! :) I need to do a better shot of him, it doesn't do him justice.ReplyDelete

Looks like you had a wonderful weekend. Love the second image the best.ReplyDelete
Looks like so much fun!ReplyDelete

Big men with cute little dogs are irresistable!
I was wondering what the heck was going on at the beginning there until I saw the boats. Great series of photos, hope the pugs stay clean for a while, usually have to bathe mine right after their bath as they love to roll in the dirt! Take care Char have a happy week :)ReplyDelete
:) so much for the bath this weekend. miss lizzie had a bit of an accident in her kennel today. i think its the steroids for her allergies.ReplyDelete
I love the quality of the bright light that you captured. It seems not so long ago I was looking at icy pictures you took in the beginning of spring, it's crazy how it all goes so quickly! Hope you are enjoying your week Char!ReplyDelete
Looks like a wonderful time! Dragon race looks especially fun. I recently shot some lichen too and now that I see your lichen, I'm not lichen my shot as much. :DReplyDelete
Dragon boat is a kind of chinese culture. in chinese called as "hua long zhou"ReplyDelete
beautiful shots! of course i am partial to the pug one! and who woulda thought pets could get excited for bath time?! it is so funny how they prance around a bath when they are feeling pretty. love that!ReplyDelete
I'm glad you added an explanation for the photos at the end of the post...I was really confused wondering what you'd been doing. : )ReplyDelete
Oh yeah, I forgot to say that I love the new banner. It's you all over.ReplyDelete

Your photos tell a story only the reader can hear.ReplyDelete

Pillars of the earth is a series? I thought it was one movie. Have you read the book? I haven't read it yet but I am intrigued.ReplyDelete
