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.

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.

They actually make a pretty good pizza. I haven’t tried the subs but they look awesome.

Another Toy

I took my youngest daughter to an appointment in Old Town last week then we went to lunch. I sat outside at one of the tables to enjoy a latte and get in some writing. This time I intentionally set the camera to the Toy setting. 🙂

Umbrellas in Hotel Lobby

Armstrong Hotel Lobby

Armstrong Hotel Lobby

I had coffee at Mugs in Old Town this past Sunday morning. Even added a bagel and cream cheese so it was an even better morning. As I stood up to leave I noticed these umbrellas in the Armstrong Hotel lobby through the shared window/wall. So, I went next door and asked to take a few images of the umbrellas and the chair in the lobby. Pretty sure this will look familiar to Tom as this is where he and Kathy stayed while visiting Fort Collins. I chose black and white because the chair and umbrellas are black. It just seemed to fit the mood.
