Winter does tend to be overwhelmingly gray. Last winter in New England it was overwhelming white! But this year…we can still see ground. Museums are a great winter activity no matter what the weather.
Art centers are always a place to find vibrant things, inside and outside. This is a bike rack outside the art center in Plymouth, MA. Who wouldn’t want to lock their bike to that beauty?

I am having some computer problems so I really can’t download any more pictures at the moment. So…for this week’s challenge I had to look through what I have already taken and say, “What conveys optimism?”
I chose a couple of different ways of viewing optimistic. The first is straightforward but humorous. This pig is in the entraceway of a restaurant in Boston: he is sure of getting a good meal!
A Great Meal is Waiting!
The second is more of a metaphor. I took this on a cold morning before our weekend snowstorm. I felt like crossing the bridge would lead me to sunshine and warmth…
A Bridge to the Sunny Side…

This weekly challenge found me struggling with a computer full of pictures, so many that I don’t dare download any more until I get rid of some!
So with the “weight” of the computer problems on my mind, I turned to some of my recent photos that would depict a more “weightless” frame of mind…

Fishing Lure Captured by a Tree
This last photo inspired me to write a “children’s rhyme” on my other blog…

My 2015 was quite challenging, but rewarding too: I found my joy and the ability to see the beauty in the world through photography. I look forward to sharing it with you all in the year ahead. May it be a more peaceful, joyful and fulfilling one for us all!
Happy New Year!

I was going to post this duck photo with the caption: Seeing Double. This thought lead my brain to think about Doublemint Gum and to start playing the jingle in my head, which lead me to search for the old commercial:
So there’s your map of my thinking and your laugh for the day. :-)
