Eyes Wide Open – Week #14

 

Good morning!

Here is another photo diary of my week. All photos taken on my iPhone. Maybe some of the photos will inspire your writing.

Have a great Saturday!

 

I ran into my new neighborhood friend George again!  He’s so cool

Pink Flamingos … it is Florida after all

Some mosaics on someone’s fence

This little Gecko jumped on the hood of my car when I left the

grocery store.  I drove slowly and he was still there when I got home.

He’s probably lost now!

Free Avocados!

Funny sight outside gun store. Do you think the angel is telling the child

not to buy one? The angel statue belongs to an antique store next door

Eyes Wide Open – Week 13

Thank goodness the temperature dropped below the 90 degree mark this week, which made running more of a pleasure than a chore!  I managed to catch a few interesting things on my iPhone and hope you enjoy them. They inspired me and perhaps they will do the same for you.

Have a great Saturday!

This sculpture is outside the Museum of Whimsy.  Great fun inside!

Some Ibis joined me at a favorite resting spot by the water

This butterfly was quite happy sitting on this horse statue

Bananas will soon be ripe for the picking!

Pretty day at the marina

Free Key Limes!  Yeah!

Eyes Wide Open – Week 12

Eyes Wide Open

I had some interesting finds for this week’s Eyes Wide Open.  I hope you enjoy these photos taken with my iPhone.

Have a great Saturday!

 

A beautiful gate to an equally beautiful property

Pretty Dog Sculpture

Another gate, but to where?

A lovely place to run.  I am very lucky!

I found this thoughtful sign on the nature trail in a local park.

There is even a delightful poem about a tree!

Just one of this week’s wild and beautiful sunsets

Eyes Wide Open – Week 11

Good Morning!

Another interesting week while I was out running.  I even caught sight of an Iguana!  You just never know what you are going to find out there. Inspiration is everywhere.

Enjoy your Saturday and please share some of the things you see when you keep your eyes wide open.

Have a great Saturday!

This Iguana was sitting on the ledge of a bridge I was running over.  He was still there when I came back an hour later!

I am not dyslexic but I can look at this sign a hundred times and I still see Oxygen & CRAP!

Pretty Mexican Petunias camouflaging this mailbox. I wonder if the postman ever gets stung by a bee trying to get the mail in the box!

 

Now that’s a mail box!  Stunning mosaic work.  I’d insist on snail mail just so I could open it everyday!

This Bull Mastiff is named George.  His dog walker introduced me and informed me George just moved here from Manhattan and has his own webpage.  Wow! a VIP.

I think George’s (photo above this one) dog walker forgot to pick up after him and left it on this neighbors front yard

Take a Seat

Recently I have been quite taken with different benches and possible seating areas that I have come across.  I have been photographing them thinking I might like to share them sometime, and today I came across a photo challenge called “Pull up a Seat”  How about that!  These photos are in response to XingfuMama Challenge

Eyes Wide Open – Week 9

Enjoy your Saturday!

Eyes Wide Open – Week 7

Good Morning!

I am really enjoying my own weekly challenges.  Each day I am out running I make sure that I capture anything that nature presents or is pleasing to my eyes.  I’m rarely disappointed.

This is what I discovered this week taken with an iPhone.  Have a great Saturday and Keep Your Eyes  Wide Open!

Buddhist Prayer

Thai lady outside her restaurant offering food to Buddha with prayer.  A daily occurrence.

Alligator Sign

I wasn’t going to, but thanks for the reminder!

“Unconditional Surrender” – 25 foot statue on our Bayfront

Million dollar bill

Someone left a million dollars on a bench! I thought it was a dollar bill when I first sat down.  Fascinated, I turned it over and learned that I could be “saved”.  I doubt that, so I left it for the next person to find.

Canopy Trail

Pretty canopy trail offering welcome shade on a steamy day

 

Enjoy what you see!

Here are some photos from this week to share with you.  As usual they are taken on my iPhone.

Enjoy your Saturday and keep your eyes wide open!

Butterfly on Daisy

I couldn’t believe this butterfly let me get so close to him.  I guess he was busy feeding himself!
