I was in the Tulsa suburb of Owasso last week. They have revamped their downtown area in the last several years and I was checking it out.
So this is my first ever shadow view, as far as I can remember (the only thing I can remember these days is that I have a bad memory.) It’s next to their history museum.
They have a big outdoor event space as well with some interesting shadows.
I like how the shadows interacted with the brick in this shot.
And a run of the mill bench shadow but you know I am easily amused.
I am a fan of back alleys so I tucked down one and found this set of electric meters. The engineer in me loves stuff like this that is designed and is so cool, functional, and geometric. Just wait a few years and somebody will mess it up, happens every time. Entropy. I kind of like the rust colored paint job as well. It’s almost red.
And a waterogue app rendition of our back patio when it was raining earlier this month. I love the blue cushions. I may have posted this photo previously. Maybe not.
Recently the worlds best Mother-in-Law, Nana had a birthday. A milestone birthday is what people were saying but myself, all birthdays are milestones. So what do you get somebody who has everything?
Heather arranged to have this put up in Nana’s front yard. I think it is totally cool.
Nana has an issue though that you need to know about. Two examples are in this photo.
Here’s is a closeup.
And this one is on top of the stove. I kind of cut it off.
And I spotted this…
And this is one of her birthday presents. Are you beginning to see a pattern here? Nana needs an intervention on her red trucks!! What do you think? I am thinking we’ll let here keep them. She has earned them!!
On our recent vacation to the Alabama coast, we spent a morning kayaking the Bon Secour River. There are many houses that back up to the river and have private docks with boats, canoes, and other watercraft. I found this pretty sailboat tied up at such a dock. There is something about a sailboat that speaks to me of wind, water, fun, and a lot of hard work taking care of it.
It is Spring here in Tulsa, lots of rain mixed with sun and warm temperatures and things are blooming all over like these roses at Lafortune Park.
And these begonias (I think, let me know if I am wrong of course) at the Mayo Hotel downtown.
And this lonely assemblage of flowers near the Williams Tower. In Williams fight with Energy Transfer on their proposed merger I guess the flower budget got shorted. Ever more money for lawyers is the rule these days. What do you think the world needs, more flowers or more lawyers? I vote for flowers!!
