7-2-14 Weekly Photo Contest: Contrasts

Today is Katherine’s birthday and to celebrate (and to make up for the disappointment of yesterday’s World Cup) I got my computer back.

We are going to The Mermaid Inn for dinner and then to Much Ado About Nothing in the park (if the warned about thunder and lightning are not too bad.)

I am “late to the party” challenge this week so I am giving two pictures for the price of one. I think both fit the idea of contrast as they contrast the expectations non-natives have of Manhattan and the reality of the island.

GO COSTA RICA!

6-23-14 Weekly Photo Challenge #2

After our trip my mind is still between the southwest and NYC. It is also between astonishment and frustration that the US is tied for 1st in the so-called “Group of Death” and that the team couldn’t hold Ronaldo off for 30 more seconds.

This is convenient for blogging as the challenge this week is between. I gave it my first try here.

Near Lee’s Ferry, Arizona, the Colorado River
