Weekly Photo Challenge: On the Way

The challenge this week is to show photos you’ve made while on your way to another place. I have a long plane ride tonight, but in the meantime (since I’m already late on this, last week’s challenge), here are some photos from a train trip a couple years ago from a train station in New Haven, Connecticut, to Grand Central Station, New York.




I loved the train seats – such a retro feel!

If you want to play along, here are the rules. Then post a link to your blog here, so we can all enjoy. As always, click any picture to see it full-screen.

Nature Walk

Tonight, we walked through a wooded area, in which many of the trees appear to be diseased. Lots of holes from woodpeckers, downed trees, trees missing bark, etc. – it was lovely. Some of my favorite images from the evening are here. As always, click on the image to make it larger.

Leaves still on the trees.

A Word A Week Challenge: Old

This week, Sue’s dictionary fell open to the word “Old,” and now we are challenged with finding photographs that fit the theme.

So, because my mother’s birthday would have been Sunday, I’ll start with an old photo of her from around 1947:


Next, a bit of detail from an old light fixture inside the Smithsonian Castle:


Last two are faces of our elders. There is wisdom that comes with the years.
