Monochrome Monday #11

My Aunt Anna, 12 years old in 1937. With her are her pets, Shep the dog and Maggie the monkey. What? Not everyone had a pet monkey? They acquired her when she got loose from a traveling circus. Someone found her and gave her to my grandparents. I just don't remember what happened to her after that but she seems to fit in. See more interesting monos here.

Looking at the Sky on Friday #3

Stairway to Heaven. And you thought it was only a song! I was looking out my front door during a rainstorm and saw this ladder sticking up into the sky from the high school across the street. So I did what any sane person would do; grabbed my camera and went outside in the rain. See more skies here.

Macro Monday #6

I'm not sure what this bush is called, but it's pretty and has thorns. I had just finished watering and I had to take a shot. It's the first time I've been able to capture water drops successfully. It's a little blurry on the lower end but if you enlarge it, it looks like tiny glass beads were placed randomly. To see more closeups, head over to Lisa's Chaos.
