walking with the boys

Autumn walk with the boys to one of our favorite places - the lovely pool in a big two level plaza. Far end of this negative edge pool is a 2 story waterfall to the larger park below.

out the front door

Out the front door on the eve of October, it was a perfect 76 degrees right after the sunset.
I stood on the sidewalk waiting for the pizza guy for almost 15 minutes, which was fine. in fact, I went down early to meet him because i knew it would be beautiful. There was a stiff breeze since all day there had been rain pushing up the coast.

Everything was blue and green and amber and black. And after a very busy day, the east end of downtown was very peaceful.

the eye

And here are two more shots from around the hood.
i've enjoyed this nicely done eye for a long time now.
It watches me and the dogs as we pass the railroad tracks by Krankie's.

summer tower

I took the phone photos during the summer as i was impressed by the reflection of a cloud on the glass tower.
I also am glad i retrieved my header banner art; my roses & oyster shell phone photo from May 2009.
Am also watching Maureen's 2 blogs for more pictures of the cape and news about the new job.
Wish I was in New York to help relieve her of all the cool stuff she's having to dispose of....grins +
cheerios, opla

farmer hat

Cousins from Richmond were with us and as always, we head to Old Salem bakery. nick is 12 and allen is 14 - they eat all the time and have both grown 5 inches in 9 months.

Everyone said i needed this hat, 1780s, for walking my doggies. i like it. but will have to wait for the farm - still a city boy at present.

It is a new hat from old style, made in Mexico, for a company in Austin. I love the smaller world, space and time.

favorite rug

Sorry Patricia - i have gotten to the most lazy place as a blogger, i'm afraid. i like looking at the pictures more than worry about any text, embedded links, footnotes, Grin. this is true to the max since i play on my Tumblr blog, re blogging pictures and art as stream of consciousness surrealism, without any literate in put.

So here's a bit more as we are have cousins here and are having a very slow easy Sunday Morning.

love this one the most - i think.

Hand loomed, 100%wool...

where from? Smart ass, short answer is Farmville VA. Better answer is Pakistan/Afghanistan/Iran - but i'm not sure. We been going to GreenFront rug and furniture for years and digging thru piles of imports. I know the "Persian" ones v the Indian ones. but as much as i love them all, i have done precious little studying of the different styles and patterns.

What's a Bukhara? Well, i know that one...

outsider wall art

These 2 phone photos are for Maureen and Patricia; Walking the canine boys yesterday, following the abandoned rail beside our apt. as it runs by abandoned warehouses, i saw this new + charming untypical graffiti.

One is our mother's table cloth; stencil on a white patch of painted over graffiti. The other is an old fashion looking bee hive, of all things.

Ahh, summer time! especially when a front has pasted through.
