WEEK 5 “Macro”

framed craneIMG_7836

Did you ever wonder why the Florida sandhill crane strut across roadways at their own pace? They know that they are protected by the law. Several weeks ago, as my husband, Chet an I were having lunch at The Lodge, a patio restaurant at the nearby Lakewood Ranch Golf and Country Club, we were visited by one of these cranes. It was not afraid of us, at all!!! In fact, it remained nearby, say within 2 to 3 feet, until another eager patron of the restaurant, camera in hand… seeking that ultimate close-up, simply moved in and got too close. Evan at that, the crane only casually walked away.

The Black Walnut Cafe’  in Atlanta, Georgia has so many wonderful eateries! We found the Black Walnut to be a great place for a brunch and to hangout with our Atlanta friends. The lovely young woman, pictured here ,was wearing such a beautiful and welcoming smile, along with her bubbling personality that I asked to take a photo of her. She was very happy to pose for me. What do you think?

Earlier this year, October 13th, Chet and I had the great fortune of being a guest at The Wedding of the year. The bride is the daughter of a very close friend of mine. This wedding was at Agnes Scott College, an all girls college, in Decatur, Georgia. It was beautiful and lovely in every way… a sight to behold. One of the fascinating things that happened is that the hall, initially set-up as a chapel and decorated for a wedding, was later, during the reception, concerted into a ballroom where the bride, groom and all guest dined and danced into the wee hours.

October 20, we were aboard The Marina Jack II, a very nice Party Boat, for an afternoon lunch and dance cruise on Sarasota Bay. The host group was JAF (Just about friends, a men’s social club). This annual event is, indeed, all about being with friends…simply an outstanding event.

Depicted here is my friend Larry. I believe he was “lost in thought” as he looked out at Sarasota Bay. I enjoy taking ” candid shots”. This is one of my favorites.

WEEK # 3 “Abandoned”


I was at the Sarasota, Florida Farmers Market on a Saturday morning and noticed this Jackfruit left out on the sidewalk. Jackfruit (Artocarpus  Heterophyllus) is the largest fruit that is actually produced on a tree and can weigh up to 80 pounds. It is native to South and Southeastern Asia and thrives in the tropical lowlands.
