end of exam week


one final paper to hand in later today. then a week of break from school - and oh boy, am i ever going to enjoy it! like this picture, i can see the sunshine on the other side of the shade - it's almost close enough to taste it now.

up first is the world baseball classic semi-finals and final game at dodger stadium (hopefully some pictures to follow), then a few days in arizona for some spring training baseball. i really can't wait... bring it on!

Nice view and great capture. I love all those palms and old homes. Have fun on your break!

Guy D, what a thoughtful thing to say! Thank you.

Enigma, the weather has been warming up nicely in recent days. In the high 70s today I think. Very pleasant.

Lily and Linnea, thanks so much for your comments on the composition of this shot - it was actually taken out of a window on our campus at Fuller.

Powell, I will have fun on my break, thanks!

What a beautiful photo, and the clouds in the sky add serenity. I like the tone contrasts.

Cafe, any requests?

Jew Wishes, the play of light and dark really came through well here.

Regina Marie, glad to have someone from the area stop by! You are welcome any time.

Is that cloud a baseball player running the bases? Have a great spring break. Thanks for showing me a nice warm landscape on this first day of spring.

ben wideman said...

Barb, I think you're right! I had totally forgotten it was the first day of spring.

Just a signed autograph jersey from Manny Ramirez. That's all. Just that one thing.
