I Heart Enjoying Life

Hey Y’all. This is my precious grandson, Kole, at Wrightsville Beach last month. His parents brought him home from Seattle, for their first visit back, since they moved last August.

He discovered a stick in the water, and his reaction reminds me that the world is still a fabulous, mind-blowing place! Through the eyes of a two-year old, we can really learn to enjoy life.

This week’s theme at I Heart Faces is “Enjoying Life.” I hope all of you are doing just that on this fine Independence Day!

I Heart Pink in a Parade

 

 

 

The 2011 Azalea Festival Parade, held annually in Wilmington, North Carolina, had a plethora of pink in it. And for good reason, y’all; azalea’s come in all shades of pink.  Everyone was wearing it – even the clowns. This one, with his pink-mobile, his pink feathers and his pink poodle, really got into the spirit!

This week’s photo challenge theme at I Heart Faces is “Tickled Pink!” I think the expression on this clown’s face captures the emotion perfectly.

I Heart Hands on a Cruise

 

 

This week’s Photo Challenge on I Heart Faces is “Raise Your Hands.” It is not required to have a face in this week’s challenge.

I found that I had so many photos to choose from. Apparently, I like taking pictures of hands. I think they tell a story that is often hidden on a face. I snap a lot of candid, random shots of strangers. This is one I took a few years ago, when my husband took me on my first cruise for my 50th birthday.

We were enjoying our morning coffee out on our “private” balcony. But, as you know if you’ve ever been on a cruise, there is never any real privacy. All you have to do is peek around the partition and you can see and hear what your fellow cruisers are doing!

I Heart Distance

Just two guys on the end of the pier, fishing and drinking Sun Drop. You can’t get any more southern than this, y’all!


 

 

This week’s theme on I Heart Faces is “From a Distance.” I wish this could be the theme every week. I would certainly have a lot of photos to choose from, since most of my photos are snapped from a distance, around my town and are often candid, random shots of strangers.

Because, let’s face it, it’s easier to take a photo of a stranger from several feet away.

I snapped this photo last summer on Johnny Mercer’s Fishing Pier in Wrightsville Beach, NC. The end of the pier is my favorites spot on this earth. I did not edit this photo at all – it is SOOTG (straight out of the camera!)

I Heart Yellow Bubbles

This week’s photo challenge on I Heart Faces is “Yellow.”

I snapped this photo of this adorable little girl at the NC Azalea Festival Parade. She was blowing bubbles with a toy that her parents bought from a street vendor, and I thought the colors were just lovely. I was hoping to capture them and I was pleased with this result.

I Heart May Flowers

This week’s photo challenge on I Heart Faces is “May Flowers.”  Since this is a non-contest week, you’re not required to show a face and you can add as many photos as you’d like to your post.

I have lots of photos of May flowers, from my recent trip to a local nursery. They had rows and rows of pink impatiens in hanging baskets.

And some of the most gorgeous roses I had ever seen!

I asked my husband to put his hand next to this bloom, so illustrate how big it was.

I just love camellias, too, y’all.

What could be prettier than a white bearded iris?

I wanted to take some of all of these home, but I don’t have enough room or enough money, so I did the next best thing… took photos!

I did get a couple of hundred dollars worth  few things, though. These pretty gerbera daisies have new home in my flower garden.

I Heart Hannah

This is a photo of my dog, Hannah, y’all. Like all Rottweilers, she is a big goof ball.  I was trying to take photo of these flowers from my back patio and she just had to get in the picture.

This week’s photo challenge on I Heart Faces is “pets.”
