A Long Walk

A Walk in the Park


Along our walking path, on 30th St., is a tetherball set up on the corner. We can never pass the tetherball without spending some time playing. This is our granddaughter, Madeleine, enjoying a few moments of tetherball.

Just Checking

Just checkingSocks OKAfter I put the socks on Madeleine thought she ought to double check just to make sure grandpa didn’t mess up the color scheme of the socks.

Before I post some of the images I took in Portland last week I thought I would share this one of our granddaughter. She is a great subject to shoot.Madeleine

Looking towards the Future.

Looking towards the Future

This morning I attended the funeral of a childhood acquaintance. In an attempt to move my thoughts, from the sadness of that loss to the future, I thought I would post this photo of our granddaughter, Madeleine. Viewing life from the perspective of a child, looking forward with great promise, helps shift my thoughts from the past/present to the future.
