This week’s challenge is to take a photo of yourself out of focus, with the background the important part of the photo. This is the grave of a child in one of the old cemeteries near where I live. There is no information on this girl; it simply says, “Louisa.”

Jake’s topic this Sunday is Window.

There’s nothing like a sunny, open window: indoor cat heaven.

I’m a bit late here for Cee’s Challenge…but I’m still in the window as this week’s challenge hasn’t been posted yet!

I saw this colorful cow in the ice cream store at the mall. What does this have to do with signs, you might ask?

The topic of the Weekly Photo Challenge this week is Patterns. There are patterns everywhere, if you look for them: in nature, in man-made materials such as textiles, and in architecture. If you look for patterns you can see beauty everywhere you look, even in places where a first glance sees desolation or emptiness.

I’ve been absent from Jake’s Challenge the last couple of weeks, but I’m back! His topic this week is Tourist Attraction…what a great topic, Jake!

Last fall my cousin and her daughter came to visit from Colorado. They were only in Massachusetts a couple of days, but we managed to hit a couple of the big tourist attractions for my area: Plymouth (where the Pilgrims landed) and Quincy (birthplace of two U.S. Presidents).

We saw the Mayflower II, but we didn’t have time to go on the ship. It is a replica, as the original ship has been gone a long time!

On the day they left, we visited President John Adams home, Peacefield. President John Quincy Adams was born there and built a library on the grounds after his father had died. The library houses the bible made famous in the movie, “Amistad.” ┬áIt was stolen years ago and recovered in a local gym locker!
