TGI Friday! ~ 266
Even though I have the day off, for some reason I couldn’t sleep in, which is frustrating because that is one of the things I like best about being off.
I have a potpourri of images for your today. For what ever reason they didn’t make it onto the blog earlier, but I had them tagged as a favorite so I’ll share those with you today.
This first image was taken the first of this week and it shows just how much water is coming over the dam at the Hurstville Dam. Normally there is a steady flow of water over the dam but on this day there was so much water coming over that it boiled up ten to fifteen feet high. You could hear the roar of the water even with the windows up.
A couple of weeks ago a caravan of vintage cars were supposed to come through Maquoketa. It was supposed to last most of the day and there were activities planned around the event including some food vendors and activities for children. Many of the cars didn’t take the Maquoketa turn off and stayed on highway 61. I didn’t know that when I took my camera up to where they were supposed to be on my noon hour. It was disappointing but on the way back to the office I saw this old Chevy pickup and its paint job was just beautiful.
It was certainly the wrong setting and time of day to shoot such a reflective subject but I had no choice. It turned out okay but I would have enjoyed spending some time shooting this vehicle under different circumstances.
It is always fun to capture the image of a child finishing up a ride on the slide. A couple of weeks ago we met Ben and Angie at the Asbury Park and let the kids enjoy all the activities. Josh took right to the slide and before long he was climbing and sliding in all one motion. He also engaged a couple of young ladies who teased him a lot but when his attention turned to something else they tried to entice him back to them. I suspect that will happen a lot in his lifetime. 🙂
That’s if for today. I hope to play golf today with my buddies. The weather is a bit iffy but hopefully we’ll get the game in. If so a nap will be in order this afternoon. Maybe I’ll have some time to work on the Phantom tomorrow.
Thanks for stopping by the blog. I hope you enjoy your day. Fridays are special even if you have to spend a good part of it working. Be careful.
