I’m a couple of days late, but Cee’s challenge this week was to show rainbow colors. I photographed all these objects in my home.

I’m a day late, but Jake’s Sunday Post Topic this week is Plains.

I live in tree-filled New England in the United States. The closest thing we have to “plains” are farm fields, which fits Jake’s definition wherein he discusses the importance of plains to agriculture. In New England our farm fields are smaller in area than those in the U.S. Midwest, and they always seemed to be edged by trees.

The second photo I scanned from my “shoebox.” It was taken in Pennsylvania many years ago; it is a bit closer to the “plains” of the central US than New England, in appearance as well as miles. The hazy aspect of the photo made me feel it worked better in black and white. Notice the lack of trees…

This week’s topic is forward.

The current helps the boat move forward.

I wouldn’t be surprised if there wasn’t someone saying “Forward March!” to this group.

Lastly, this pull toy faces forward, waiting to be pulled…

Here’s a photo that definitely fits Cee’s Topic this week.

Concerts on the Common, Boston

Concert’s on the Common “uniform”

What is it, you may ask? When I was in my 20s I was a volunteer usher for a summer outdoor concert series in Boston. This was the “uniform” we wore over our clothes. I had a couple of them, one plastic and one cloth. Getting rid of stuff some years ago I decided I would only keep one. This is it: I figured I can use it for an apron sometime (I haven’t though).

The next couple of photos are MOSTLY red and white (I know I’m cheating a little).

It is funny that although the trucks are red and white, the word “yellow” stands out the most!

As long as you are inside and warm, the blizzard can be beautiful. Trees dressed to the nines.
