Filled With Gratitude

A Look and Feel of Winter

A Look and Feel of Winter

Not many photographs lately as the inspiration to frame and press the shutter button has not been there. I still see the scenes and look for them. This was taken back in early November near one of my coffee shops.

I’m now sitting in a coffee shop after a busy Saturday. It’s been a day to connect with both family and friends so not much solo time, a different experience for me. But, there is a contentment within me. This past week has been a time to reflect on my life. There have been no extraordinary moments or life changing events to talk about, just life as it happens.  It has been a good year so I am filled with gratitude for the life I have. May this coming year bring joy, peace, good health into your life. Thanks for being a part of this blogging life.

Pergola on the back patio.

Whenever my sister, Sheree, and I go down to visit at Thanksgiving our dad always had some pre-cut piece of wood for us to carve. so, we sit on the back patio and carve to our hearts desire. I think I took a similar image like this last year so I apologize if it looks similar.

This the scene I noticed in the alley as I came out of the parking garage in Old Town. Light and shadows. Shot shot this in black and white also but preferred the color image this time.

Wall Graffiti

Colors and Patterns

Colors and Patterns

This is the side of a metal building someone has painted a mural on. It is massive in size and depicts a couple of hummingbirds that must be 10 feet tall. I am standing along the path leading to the bus stop and can’t step back any further. It was the abstract essence that called me when standing this close. Bright colors!

Morning Sunshine at the Table

More lines catching my eye but the first thing to draw me was the light. Love morning light and this was all about the light! The color of the light was lovely but my camera washed out the highlights, nor could I seem to find anything to please me with Lightroom. Finally converted it to black and white in Silver Efex and was then a happy camper. It tickles me and causes a smile. 🙂

Seeing Lines

Stairs and Lines at CSU Campus

Stairs and Lines at CSU Campus

I’m spending more time on campus now that I’m auditing this philosophy class at Colorado State University. A friend of mine is teaching the class and invited me to sit in on the class. And, I am enjoying the class. I take the bus to campus about an hour prior to class then spend a few minutes in the Behavior Science Building where they have a small and busy little coffee shop. These lines lead up the stairs to the other 2 floors and a beautiful patio area looking west to the Front Range. Have a good week.
