Day One Hundred Eighty Six ~ Blue Moon Tonite

… see you again in 2015.


Day One Hundred EightyFive ~ Summer Sunrise

Morning Sunrise

Mornings in the city in the desert… sitting on the lounge in the backyard, 5:30ish, watching the sun break through, while the tyke (puppy aka Sawyer) wanders the yard performing his elaborate ritual of sniffing and circling, precursory to his two P’s (potty & poop).

Day One Hundred Eighty Four ~ Summer Sunset

Desert Sunset

In the city in the desert…

Day One Hundred Eighty Three ~ Dog Tired

Dog Nap

Mommy made me walk in the heat for 3 miles today… okay, I admit, she carried me home the last mile.

Day One Hundred Eighty Two ~ Horse In The City

Sawyer and I love this beautiful horse… we stop to say hello on our morning walks.

Day One Hundred Eighty One ~ Gold Reflection

A walk along the historic Gold Spot building, built in 1925.

Day One Hundred Eighty ~ Itsy Bitsy Spider

Experimenting with my new macro filter tube extension which I purchased after being inspired by this post, by Brooke Anderson Photography.  For $11 it is quite rewarding.  Now this attempt was hand held, so a bit blury… but I think there’s a lot of potential with my new purchase!

I was applying sealer to my new patio furniture when I saw this cute little guy and ran for my camera.  Probably no more then 1/4 inch in size.  I have no idea what kind of spider it is… but couldn’t you almost pet it?  Ok, maybe not.

Day One Hundred Seventy Nine ~ The Little King

Look who’s plopped on top of my laptop with his toy… see why I can’t keep up with my daily posts?!  How can I resist that little face? 🙂

Day One Hundred Seventy Eight ~ Where the Wind Blows

Palm Springs windmills

Wind turbine generators…

I am always fascinated with the miles of wind turbine generators outside Palm Springs… never get tired of seeing them.  Finally took a little time to stop and catch some shots but skies were overcast, etc so wasn’t able to get the captures I hoped for… but its a start.  Next time… 🙂

Day One Hundred Seventy Seven ~ Larger than Life

Forever Marilyn…

Standing nearly 3 stories high at 26 feet, the Marilyn statue in downtown Palm Springs is a sight to behold.  It/she is drawing quite a bit of attention and it was nearly impossible to get a picture without people posing in some fashion around the base.  The statue is striking in its location on a large grassy open space on a busy corner on Palm Canyon drive, with the mountain range soaring behind.  Here are a few interesting links providing more background on the Forever Marilyn statue, currently residing in Palm Springs.  It was so hot and humid, you can see that it appears even Marilyn (statue) is perspiring.
