Hello and happy Sunday! I would normally say, ugh, another busy week is coming up, but this is the week that my son goes on his 7th grade overnight trip….for four days and three nights!! Oh, I will miss him to pieces, but the other piece of this puzzle is that this week is also a week that my husband is up at his law firm in NY.
Score! I am going to be so. home. alone. Oh trust me, the dogs will keep me in line, lol.
Seriously….I have SO much to catch up on and that’s why I truly welcome the time to myself. I need to do a third test on a few of my recipes (have you checked out my new food blog Kitchen Serendipity yet?) and need to get quarterly taxes done.
But most of all – I’m taking a serious workshop that I’ve wanted to take for more than a year. It’s pretty intensive and my son is already over me taking his photos during just this last week. Really over it, heightened by a good dose of 12 year old moodiness. Need I say more? I will need to probably solicit friend’s children this week for my assignment!
So back to Project 52…..this week’s theme is “Urban”. Well, I would have loved to have shot a cool teenager downtown or something along those lines. But – no time to plan this one out!
So….I dropped my son off at tennis this morning, and then parked my car in downtown Bradenton and just walked around. I took random photos and visited many vendors at the Farmer’s Market. I hooked up with an olive oil company who will be featured on my food blog Kitchen Serendipity very soon. I had fun!! I haven’t done this sort of thing in a while, and need to do it more often.
And here are my urban images for this week:
This first one I love because I took it from the inside looking out. I was at B. Towne Coffee Company ordering a pressed Cuban and while waiting for my sandwich, I became captivated by what I saw outside. No one could see me taking photos – I was right behind the door looking out. You can see the company’s initials on their glass door – it blurs out a bit while the couple at the table outside remains sharp. How cute is that dog?? I think maybe he saw me and knew what I was up to, lol!
And the following two were found among Bradenton’s urban landscape……..
Back in January, I joined a group of 14 other photographers to challenge ourselves on a weekly basis, which is know as Project 52. A different theme each week – and our different interpretations each week. Our blogs are linked to form a circle – and next up is the fabulous Cara Richardson, Phillip Island, Victoria, Australia
– I LOVE her beautiful images.
