When I asked my nephew to select his favorite colored crayons for a school project I was helping him with, he chose these. We were prepping to design a t-shirt concept for a fundraiser his school is having. He ever so neatly arranged them as so.
Our goal was to glue the crayons to a poster board and let the heat and the Florida sun melt the colors down the board. He was going to then draw an image on his own to reflect the fundraiser the t-shirt design was needed for and place it over the crayons. He colors my life with such happiness. Our last step was figuring out which mode we liked the best when we brought the image over into Photo Booth on my I-Pad in order to capture this warp, distorted mode.
Catch Me If You Can!
Sunday’s weather on the Gulf of Mexico was a typical summer day. It started off sunny and gorgeous and of course out of nowhere, turned dark and stormy. This was the scary kind with frequent and too close for comfort lightning. As you can imagine, this type of sudden, severe weather ended our beach day. As we and the other beach goers packed up our day quarters, we saw this boy chasing his inner tube down the beach that the strong wind grasped in its path. It just rolled and tossed itself down the beach with the poor boy trying to catch it with his child-sized hands.
It was a quiet evening at home bellied up to a cozy candle and the warmth of my fireplace application on my i-Pad! The wine is being poured.
Bouncing off the Beach!
We had some dear friends of the family join us for a week of vacation on Longboat Key this summer. This special family is the kindest, dearest, most loving family I have ever met. The three siblings even held hands as we meandered through St. Armand’s when we went out for dinner after our days spent together on the beach as we explored those living in the Gulf and walked with those residing on the beach.
Two of the three siblings are dancers and we ended up having a really fun photo shoot. Their father, Michael Zappia is a professional photographer and was giving me some pointers!! Photographed is his daughter, Dominique, as she’s bouncing off the beach jump after jump! Where’s my Aleve? My back hurts just reviewing our fun photos!
