art, photography

Local Bank in East Tennessee. I Prettied up the Images with Some Color Editing. .. As You Probably Already Know, I love Pinks, Purples and Blues. .. Also, my phone was upset with me for writing “prettied up.” It kept autocorrecting me. .. I know it’s not a word, but it’s my blog and I told the phone that I’m using made-up words if I like them. I’m too old and too tired of being shoved into boxes that are constructs of ther people. 🌺 .. So I prettied up the damn pictures and I’m happy with them now. The bank looks much better in purples and blues, don’t you think ? .. The building is a very nice architecture design though. .. It has beautiful lines. That’s what made me want to photograph it. .. I’m also writing this post in the space where the title should be. I know that too. I’m just feeling rebellious today. Tired of the restraints and the boxes people are trying to shove me into. .. Have a peaceful day if you can. And climb out of the box , especially if anyone is trying to tell you there is no box.



Rainbows in Oak Ridge


Since I have lived in Oak Ridge, TN , I have never seen any rainbows. I saw many big beautiful ones, when I lived in New Jersey, and I was used to looking for the rainbow, on days when it was sunny but drizzling. There would always be one.

Years ago, I lived in Monteray , CA, and rainbows were a regular thing there. Although, those rainbows were different from New Jersey rainbows. In New Jersey the rainbows were always huge and went across the entire skyline. These were similar to the Maryland rainbows, which is where I grew up.

In Monteray, CA, the rainbows were smaller but more vividly colored.  It was not unusual to see multiple rainbows,  in all directions, on a misty day in Monteray.

But since I have lived in TN, I have never seen one,  until the other day. I was able to get some nice shots. Enjoy !
