Project 365: July

No theme this month. I think it passed creatively dead, though I get luck at time with sweet and silly animal moments. I also visited Saint Louis so I have a few fancy-smancy landscape and botanical images.

I’m not sure what this squirrel was up to, but it seemed to be sucking or licking the underside of that stand during a rainstorm. It reminded me of livestock at a salt block.

Once again, I have NO idea what this critter is up to. I think she wanted to nap in the shelf but kept fumbling on the folders. She eventually slept but in an awkward position.

My dad keeps a quarter collection and in with the American collection–where this Canadian quarter did not belong–was this 2002 women’s Olympic hockey team coin. How awesome of Canada to produce this, both on the hockey level and the women’s athletics level.

The “pagoda” at Forest Park, Saint Louis. A delightful site to hang out if one lived in the area. The parks in my town are noisy and crowded, but Forest Park was spacious and serene. The dragonflies and frogs teased me though. I failed to get their pictures.

We visited the Missouri Botanical Garden during the Lantern Festival. Unfortunately we didn’t stick around to visit at night to see the lanterns doing their job, but the place was as handsome during the day. I was a little kid eagerly visiting every site, taking pictures of the obvious and minute beauties.

I don’t know if this works as a photo or not, but I love the abstract value of it with the folds of vertical light and horizontal refraction. I also see the face of a dragon…or a sock puppet.

On to the retirement pasture: Grampa Quixote is not my horse but he’s sweet and deserves treats. Perhaps one might prefer the image without the fly mask, but I like the quirky, dopey-ness of it. It suits the horse’s personality. My mom also conveniently wore blue and keeps to the color scheme.
