when the blues are a good thing

P1110777

Yesterday, we took a walk around town. We passed the local high school where a football game was in full marching band fervor with crowds cheering between bleats of the referee's whistle.

As always, when I walk down the west side of college hill where the colonial houses line cobblestone streets, ideas for photo projects surface: a focus on only roofs, only turrets, only name placards (you would not believe some of the names! kooky fun), only street signs (where else but in a city named Providence would the streets be named Friendship, Benevolent, Hope, etc), only funky shutters, only trees .. . it goes on and on.

And I would really like to set that as a goal for myself in 2013. One a month seems possible. I'm gonna have to remind myself of that in December when I do the whole "out with 2012, in with 2013" ceremony . .

Meantime, if there were a focus from yesterday, it would be color. I cannot begin to tell you how much I love that the houses are painted such vibrant colors, how much I love that there are still flowering plants with blooms, how much color feeds my soul.
