Walk Part Two

The walk for coffee yesterday with my husband and my daughter Lucy turned into sort of a photowalk.  I really tried to shoot outside my comfort zone and I think I captured some interesting shots.

Macro of a wild daisy and a bee.  And the bee is actually in focus, that is a first for me!  I'm pretty proud of myself.

I was a little scared to take this shot, being illegal and all to be on the tracks, but I knew if I didn't I would be kicking myself for it later.  So glad I did.

Love the character of older buildings on Main Street.

Abandoned building with a cool blue door and vintage knob.  I was going to have Lucy stand in front of it but Chuck said that there was burn grass or something there.  I want to get a pic of somebody in front of that door someday though.

Lucy looking pretty tuckered out, but she's a trooper.

On the way home we found this cute little kitty on a leash outside, which I thought was a great idea, no cat roadkill.  My daughter just loves cats, don't know if the cat was as thrilled as she was though.  The owner came outside and asked for copies of the pictures of Shadow (cat's name) and Lucy, she said they looked so cute together.  I hope she likes them.
