Beauty Everywhere

Even under foot.

When we took a tour of the US Capitol we were awestruck at the beautiful architecture, columns, paintings, ceilings, sculptures, the cupola, and even floor grates. I could stare at this for a long time. I love the symmetry. It looks like it’s a fibonacci sequence. Maybe that’s why it’s relaxing to me. Is it only me? It might be too busy for you.

Autograph

We’re back at the bowling alley. The girls were attending a birthday party and one of the party favors was a water bottle shaped like a bowling pin. So they all put their own names on their pins. This was back when Ash was 6 and signing her name was still a novelty. So much concentration.

Little Feet

There’s something about little feet. When it’s baby feet, just the little toes can set you off. Then you put the little feet in cute little shoes. Then you put the little feet in little-sized adult-type shoes, like these little bowlers.

But then they grow up to be teenager feet and maybe start smelling a little bit. I think I prefer the little feet.

Back against the wall

I found another great wall in the downtown Fayetteville area. My girls have always been willing subjects, and you can tell my youngest was striking a pose.

On another note, I have ten more days of the year-long challenge! I started on 01 Feb 2016 editing a picture a day. In some ways it has flown by. At the end of each month it starts to drag because I feel like I’m running out of material to edit. You can read about the challenge here: Project Edit 365: About.

Atlas Auto Electric

On our walk around the town, we made it to the downtown area. The buildings, walls, streets–everything had such character. I came across this exterior wall and I love everything that is going on. The window has Christmas pine still decorating it. There’s a chain hanging from them. Perhaps it’s securing the two chairs, I don’t remember. My favorite thing is the wood on the door. Check everything out:

Reflection

When we lived in North Carolina, I went out with a photographer friend to shoot around our town. Being in the middle of the week, my kids came along. It was a chilly and overcast day and we were walking around a more industrial part of town. Leave it to kids to find something to play with no matter where they are, and that’s a good thing!
