Last week’s photo challenge.  Late as usual.





There’s no photo for purple because I’ve been ridiculously sick lately and hauling my 5 lb camera around is the last thing I’ve felt like doing. Sorry.

Amusement Park

The Elmer’s Weather Balloon ride at Six Flag’s Discovery Kingdom.

Because it’s a children’s ride, the paint on the ride is ridiculously bright and garish. I toned down the color which I think gives it a nice retro feel.

Noah started out this morning all sweetness and light, bringing me three gardenias — my favorite flower — he’d picked on a morning walk with his Lolo. This was followed by roughly seven hours of what I can only generously describe as “snot-nosed brattiness”. Fortunately the day ended with me getting my sweet, goofy boy back. Here he is taking his new inline skates out for a test drive:
