Your Sunday Best #41 ~ Day of the Dead

I celebrate Day of the Dead:

I celebrate by hosting a "Dia de los Muertos" party for family and friends.


The house is decorated, an altar is built, food is served;
a time to get together, be together and honor those who have passed before us.

Photo Art Friday ~ derelict

Bonnie's challenge this week:
left or deserted, as by the owner or guardian; abandoned

  abandoned dreams

deserted lands

"It's difficult in times like these:
ideals, dreams and cherished hopes rise within us,
only to be crushed by grim reality." Ann Frank  

Photos were rendered with pdpa texture  "Abstract Elements Drops of Jupiter"
and Fly Paper texture "Colosseum Sienna"

52 photos project ~ on the table

This is my table, although quite a bit different than the 'norm';
I had invited a friend over for a belated Birthday dinner
so the table had been cleared off, cleaned up, and set, just in time for Bella's prompt!

The table that is normally used to read the paper,
do my paper work, read my books and daydream off into space.

The table we gather around to visit with family, friends, and celebrate Thanksgiving.

Mandarin Orange Monday #15 ~ geraniums

As I was walking to the Plaza for the World Wide Photo Walk meet-up last Saturday,
I became enchanted by bright orange geraniums in an art gallery window.

The geraniums faced towards the sun in the west,
where they will have a happy home all winter long.
