MY PHOTOGRAPHS CAN TAKE THE EDGE OFF A ROUGH WEEK AND STEER YOU INTO A RELAXING WEEKEND!

in #photographylast year
Well we have survived another week. My cold is gradually improving and I have a lot more energy than last weekend. Unfortunately my wife now has the cold, and my daughter was also out of commission for a few days. I hope to back outside and get back to putting up my winter wood supply. I ended up paying some to split wood for me last weekend. They needed the money and it helped keep me on target to get everything set before the snow starts to fall. It is not unusually to start seeing snow this time of the year, although so far we are just getting well needed rain.



I was going through some older back up drives I had used for my business and found many photographs I had been trying to find. I will use some this week. I did not count how many, but there are enough to keep me posting for awhile. I even found some photographs my wife took when she visited Arizona a few years ago.

We continue to work on our floor. My friend who is a tile worker can only do it on weekends. When I was in my late 30's we remodeled a house while living in it. When we finished I said I would never do that again. Somehow I forgot the chaos it can create and we are in the midst of it. It will get better when he finishes the kitchen, dining room, and my bathroom. I thought I kept things organized when we moved things to different rooms and the garage, yet there are things we cannot find. I am taking pictures as we go along with the tile work.

Well it is time for photographs isn't it? I have quite a mixture this week. Some are from the batch of older digital photos I recently found. They were taken with my first digital camera (Canon Powershot A40). The mega pixels are low compared to my newer cannon. Six of the photographs are from that camera. So, it will be easier to let you know when a photograph is from my newer Cannon camera that keep mentioning the name of the older one.

This first photograph was taken at Manito Gardens, in Spokane Washington. I have more Dahlia photographs from that excursion, but this one "touched me" when I saw it:

2006-09-06 09.33.17-s.jpg

These next two photographs are of a Delphinium my father sent me the year before he passed away. That would put these photographs at least 23 years old. I had my wife take a photograph of me standing next to it to show how tall it is. I am 5 feet 7 inches (1.7018 meters if my conversion software is correct). You will also notice I have clean-cut haircut and my hair and beard have yet to turn white:

This next photograph was also taken by my wife on her trip to Arizona. She visited a butterfly sanctuary:

2013-03-23 14.00.18-S.jpg

These next two photographs were recently taken with my newer Canon camera. I will let them speak for themselves:

This second photograph of the sky may have been the same day:

IMG_3739-S.JPG

I will close with one of my sunflowers I grew a few years ago. This was taken with my older digital camera:

2009-09-05 08.18.38-s.jpg

This brings us to the close of another post. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.

Thank you very much.

Good morning sir, pleased to know that you are well. You are looking handsome standing beside the flower garden. Your photography is always wonderful. Specially the Sunflower is looking gorgeous.

Thank you very much. It is good to feel better. I moved a couple ton of tile today and then stacked some firewood. I could not do that even a few days ago.

I saw some late sun flowers in the park last week. Looks like they are resistant to lower temperature as well. Beautiful photos by the way :) Great job

Thank you very much. Yes they can handle a little colder weather than some plants. It makes it easier to get an early start with them in the Spring.

Thank you very much. I am not sure but in Manito Gardens they must dig up the tubers every year because of freezing winters. I grow my in containers and then bring them into a dark area of garage where they will not freeze.

Welcome to my blog post.

Hi @r2cornell, it is nice you posted today, it was a pleasure to learn more about your and your family. I can imagine how it is when you do renovation, that usually so hectic time with moving furniture and stuff around, with mess and can't find things. Finally you enjoying the nice renovated house but it is unbelievable how soon you notice that this or that needs to be re-done due to wear and tear.

We are now in process of renovating actually our whole house look like a big construction site, we bought 200 year old house, where last renovation was done in 70's, so now we are trying to upgrade but the same time to leave Victorian time touch. It is time consuming and also the budget somehow melts very quickly.

Your flowers look really beautiful, Dahlia has nice intense color and Delphinium, is really huge, never seen such big plant. It is nice reminder about your father. I love your sunset pictures, especially the first that looks late sunset, or golden hour. Another one is also beautiful but this is another beauty.

Also great sunflower, I love sunflowers and you probably know that is favorite object for painting for artists.

Was really nice to read your post and I wish you renovation process to go faster and smooth. Cheers, @Stef1

Thank you.

Last year when cryptocurrency was peaking I sold enough to pay down debt and then I set aside enough money for this remodeling. I did this when I was in my 30's and did most of the work myself. I said then I would never do it again. I guess I forgot that part of it. This time, especially the tile work, it is safer to have someone I trust do it. Hopefully crypto will go up again and and I can pull funds to do more work. trying to get as much done before I fully retire.

I have never been able to get a delphinium to grow that large since. We sold the place and moved during the winter so I was unable to dig up and bring with me.

Winter approaches and I am just beginning to give thoughts of next years flowers. As we get closer to the end of the years I will get my hydroponic salad greens going. with the remodel I cannot yet clean out my plant growing room to set up units.

;o)

You just made this boring weekend into a great one full of sheer happiness beautiful that was to see :D

Thank you very much. I appreciate it. Glad it helps your weekend.
