PHOTO FRIDAY REFLECTIONS

DAMN THAT CLARK HOWARD

It is time for my entry in Photo Friday. REFLECTIONS. I have waited the appropriate three to five days  pondering how to do it! Quite frankly, all the people who participate are very accomplished with a camera.  I like to sneak mine in after the rush.

It rained all day yesterday and half of today. Finally, the sun broke out and I jubliantly went to downtown Lexington to shoot one of the tall building with the coolest gold glass! The wind was horrific! I was almost blown down. My purse caught a tremendous updraft and nearly flew away with all my stuff.

I found a very quiet and uninhabited Friendship Garden. I walked around and took numerous pictures, wondering if what I was seeing would translate to the computer. It did. The above picture is the result.

Happily, I made my way home only to become very caught up in a Clark Howard topic discussion. It seems that it is being argued before the Supreme Court the right to purchase wine and have it mailed over state lines. You can only imagine my interest, as there is this lovely winery just over the Georgia border that has the most divine Plum Wine. (throw back to my BoonesFarm drinking days.) I was hanging on his every word and suddenly I noticed the police lights coming up fast behind me! Damn it all!!!!!!!! Caught speeding.  He was very nice, since I learned my lesson the last time and did not tell him that I do it all the time .........and I ended up with a warning.

When I arrived home I had waiting for me a letter (A REAL LETTER!!) from my cousin in LA!

Now if only I would win the lottery.

That photo is so serene. I love it.
As for wine, I hate it so I don't care. Don't blame me. Blame my Italian father who made me drink it to strengthen my blood and I hated it. : )

Lovely picture.  A warning?  You dog.  I never get less that a ticket when I get stopped.  I'm surprised they don't just throw me in jail!  Lisa  :-]

I think your photo is beautiful!  But yeah, I can understand the intimidation of the other photographers on the site.  Some of them are really amazing.  Congrats on your warning - seems you lucked out! An early Christmas gift!  :D

I love the picture! It looks like a winning entry. Not lottery, you got Photo Friday!  Ah, I will be interested in that wine discussion too. No mail order wines? This country is going to hell in a handbasket! Glad you got off the speeding ticket fiasco without a scar.  Be careful, Maria Andreatti!
