An old favorite

This is one of my all time favorite pictures and I can't believe that I've never posted it before. This was taken in Cozumel, Mexico. The Mariachi band played while the little girl danced. As cute as it was, it was all about money. The minute they saw you attempting to take a picture, they would stop and ask to be paid for the photo op.

Always the rebel, I used my zoom lens from the 2nd floor of the shopping area where we were. I'm sorry if I cheated them, but the girl was precious and the little boy was pretty hilarious. He obviously didn't care for the family business as much as his sister did.

I played with the color on this one and ended up with something that reminds me of the big floral patterns you might see on a couch in the 70s. I like the yellow spots where the sun was coming through.

When taking some pictures of the downtown Little Rock skyline, I went a little further west to get this shot. In the foreground is the Arkansas river. In the background (from left to right) is Dillard's Corporate headquarters (longer building on the river), the AT&T building, and the Arkansas State Capitol.

The King

Today is the anniversary of the death of Elvis Presley. Elvis has always been one of my Mom's favorites, so for the past 33 years, I've heard "That's so sad" anytime Elvis is mentioned. It's a running family joke.

I took this picture in front of Graceland a few months ago. After all of these years, so many fans still visit to pay their respects and write messages on the outside wall.

The Happy Place

Life is just extra hard right now, so I find myself more & more going to my happy place. Yes, that includes fantasies of me on the beach.

I took this picture from the ship when we went on a Disney cruise. This is their private island, where we stopped on the last day. I had almost forgotten how blue the water is. What I wouldn't give to be here right now...

Just a house

I went to take some pictures of the skyline recently and ended up on an empty lot by this house. I first noticed the dog who played with us (who is on the back porch here, but hidden by the fence), but later noticed the house. It's located in an older neighborhood, so the newer construction is conspicuous, but overall, I like it.

I'm going to stare at it and pretend it goes out to the beach. And that I live there.

Birdhouse at sunset

I was out taking pictures of other things, but the light coming through the trees on this birdhouse caught my attention. I like the way this picture turned out.
