#218 Holding on!

Taken yesterday but to sick to post... I went to the doctor's and I have bronchitis! I am on antibiotics, and some narcotic that will help me sleep through the night (sleep through the night!)
Last day of August... Good bye orange, you were a favorite of mine!

#217 Clock Compo

An easy one today, but an interesting one nonetheless. One of my favorite "design" objects in my home: Time Square by Nava Milano. A layer of shadows and some cropping make for an interesting composition.
Still fighting with jet-lag and with a bothersome cough... I am not feeling my best.

#216 Iguana

I know, I know... after my beautiful sunset this comes as a surprise. Right? I happen to think it is beautiful, with all those colors and textures, and the cool surfer necklace? I know!
I feel sorry for it too... to be subjected to a leash and a walk amongst hundreds of people... not cool.
I took this picture at the 3rd street promenade in Santa Monica. The same spot where I took the picture of the tattooed arm. It is quite a place for one of a kind images!

#215 August sunset

Last night's welcome sunset! Breathtaking, right? Monte Rosa looks a bit like a volcano on fire! I am glad I am back home, enjoying every moment.

#214 As if

Just a little bloom from the garden. I am not feeling well, it can be jet lag, or I got a virus in one of the many planes... Oh well...

#213 Up and down in Amsterdam

We are back home in Italy. It took us a long time to get back: 5 airports, 3 long waits, 4 planes, 3 time zones, and not much sleep... I managed to remember my challenge. This is my first image with my brand new canon powershot SD1400, I am very happy with this small beauty!

#212 SantaMonica Orange

While people watching in Santa Monica's 3rd street promenade, some incredible orange caught my attention. This very disjuncted image is a close up of a tattooed arm... Isn't it great?

#210 DeeAnn's suntea

Back in our old neighborhood, visiting with my good friend DeeAnn. She makes her tea with the power of the sun. Love and a little bit of patience are the main ingredients of this brew. I love how she inspires me.

#207 Skill

Another one from Cedar Point, but I have a good excuse! I was stuck inside a plane without my beloved camera all day! In addition my poor son has been sick for the last three days, we found out today that he has strep throat... antibiotics and lots of love were prescribed.

#205 On top of the world

Cedar Point. Ring any bells? It didn't for me until yesterday... This huge amusement park in Ohio is home to some of the greatest roller coasters rides in the area. With three 13 year olds in tow, we had to go. As you can see from the picture, I am not a roller coaster fan... I dislike them... I entertained myself with simple rides and picture taking. Lucky me, there was a lot of orange to be found.

#204 Angels ride tigers

We went to see the baseball game in Detroit. To our delight the Tigers were playing the Angels (our home team from California)... of course my son and I were rooting for the Angels, while everyone else were decked in orange... Angels won! It was a lot of fun. The carousel sits inside the stadium, isn't it fun?

#202 State theatre

We are visiting friends in Michigan. Ann Arbor is a great university town, great architecture, restaurants and vibe. A neon sign like this I would never see in Italy.

When friends go

I finished the little moka for my friend Heidi. I tried to replicate my Moka Monte print on it and it works on some levels, and not so much on others. I wish I had had more time to keep working on it.

But you know, sometimes it is ok to let go, it is ok to say good bye.

#200 Some orange


A little bit of orange captured my eye on the table. This was left after the b-b-q today. I think ORANGE is going to be a lot of fun.
