Church Reflected

This is the First Baptist Church of Madison as reflected in the windows of the old Madison-Ridgeland High School. Check back tomorrow for a full frontal view.

Until then, I hope you enjoy my reflection and the many others at James' Weekend Reflections site.

Stating the Obvious

It seems pretty obvious to me that you should step down when you see stairs. But I guess some people need reminding.

Confidential to my brother: Happy Birthday!!!

September Theme Day: Markets

This is the Freshway Produce stand. I try to buy my fruits and veggies there when I can as I prefer to support local growers, but sometimes it just isn't isn't convenient to shop at two or more places.

As you can see, they offer a lot more than just produce! There are also flowers, jams and jellies, honey, cold drinks... it's a nice place to wander around a bit. And their cantaloupes cannot be beat.

To see more markets from around the world, check out CDP's September theme page. I've also posted a bonus market picture here.

Wishing for a Rainbow

I was hoping to get a rainbow through the sprinklers one morning at the golf, but the light was too diffuse. Ah well, maybe next time!


I have two little hummers that constantly buzz around my backyard. It's funny because one will sit here on the hook and guard the nectar, but he'll only take a few sips every now and then. They're not shy birds by any means. They will buzz around my head when I go outside to fill up the other feeder or to water my flowers.

This photo was taken with my Nikon D3000, not the Wingscapes. I took a few through the window and cropped them down. I'm very pleased with the result. The only sad thing is there's no size reference. In reality, this guy is only about two inches long, a really tiny fellow.

Please stop by Bird Freak to see more of our feathered friends from around the world.

Sofa Bench

This is another seating option at the Renaissance shopping center. They really offer shoppers a wide variety of places to rest. It reminds me a bit of a sofa with those high, curvy arms. I'll have to test the comfort next time I'm there.
