Eyes Wide Open – Week #26

Good Saturday morning! I hope you all had an enjoyable week. Here are some of my iPhone photos taken while I was out and about people and nature watching. It’s amazing what you see when you have your eyes wide open.

Enjoy your day!

This cool looking Chameleon was in the pet store
Pretty climbing roses still in full bloom
I saw this beautiful hawk and wished I had my Nikkon camera
with me! Oh well, another time
Oh how I love shopping at Trader Joe's for their sense of fun.
This little stuffed Manatee in a sailboat was on display above
the cold shelves
Now this guy was all alone just twirling his giant baton in the park.
I hope he had a good reason
The lone fisherman

Eyes Wide Open – Week #24

Good Saturday morning!  I hope you have enjoyed your
week.  The weather was as little crazy here in Florida,
a little chilly for December, and a lot of rain too.  On Thursday
there was even a Tornado that swept through a community just
north of here. Yikes!

Anyway, here are some photos that I took on my iPhone when
the weather was favorable.  Hope you enjoy them.
Have a great day!
A beautiful Florida sunset was a lovely sight this week
This isn't a UFO!  It was a spider on her web clutching some kind
of crustacean that was bigger than she was!  It was just above

my head
An assortment of Ibis and Herons sitting on the mangroves
My dog Grace looking very interested in the wading Heron
Buddha contemplating among the Bamboo trees
This house has been empty for some time (someone's second home)
however, I can't help thinking those Buzzards that are usually
perched there, aren't exactly helping the realtor trying to sell it

Eyes Wide Open – Week #15

Good Morning!

Just when I thought the temperatures were finally dropping, they spiked again with help from the heat index.  I cut back on my running because I just couldn’t do it for very long this week and enjoyed some walking instead. Even on the coast we were at 99 degrees and these very high Fall temperatures were draining.  The following photos were taken on an iPhone.

Hope you enjoy your Saturday!

Even on the coast we were at 99 degrees. Some pretty high Fall temperatures

I wish I was going with them … it looks cooler!

I saw several trees like this, all in blossom.

I’m not sure what it is so I’ll check it out. Does anyone know?

Some large yard art.  Pretty horses.

This little guy was all on his own

Pretty shot with the building reflecting perfectly in the water

These heat tolerant plants were beautifully blooming

 

 

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

Someone enjoying the weather on his jet-ski

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!

Enjoy your Saturday!

Eyes Wide Open – Week 2

Here are a few photos taken with my iPhone while out running.  I’m making a concerted effort to capture pictures of things I would normally not stop and take in. There is inspiration everywhere in beautiful nature.  My intention is to post some photos at the end of each week.

A big thanks again to Cyranny’s Cove and her After Eight Moments for the inspiration to begin this project.  She has some great photos so be sure to check them out.

I would love to just sit on one of these very

low hung branches in the shade

What a great oak tree to have in your front yard!

 

I saw this Blue Heron just paddling in the pond

 

A beautiful sunset over the Bay

Enjoy your day and keep your eyes wide open!
