This 365 day project features photos that include words (actual or implied),
text, books,
writing, letters and numbers, signs, libraries, and.... well, you get the idea.


day 304 of 365

I've been taking a lot of night shots this week.  I wandered around downtown Hyannis after dark, and the streets were mostly empty.  There's something enticing about the lights pouring out of the windows, inviting you inside.  You can see more of my night shots here.  And don't forget to stop by Mortal Muses starting tomorrow for 9 days of musing on night.

I've strayed just a little off-theme in my daily photos lately -- but as the blog header says, the theme is to embrace words, actual or implied.  And way back last January, I set up some rules for my 365 project, and one of them was: Thou must stick to the theme, OR twist it to thy liking.  So, in that case I've succeeded. 

But today I've got not only words, but a sign, and books! Three of my favorite thingsAnd now I'm back on track, and all is right with the world.

This branch reminded me of a clothesline, with the leaves all hung out to dry.

Fall color has hit Cape Cod full force this week, and it is so beautiful.


day 300 of 365

I loved these ghostly little flowers in the gardens at the Vanderbilt Mansion.

I'm musing on my love affair with light over on Mortal Muses today.  We're featuring 9 days of inspiration -- and 9 days of amazing giveaways.  Stop by!

Oh, and look!  It's day 300.  Only 65 more days to go before I finish my 365 project.  How time does fly.

 Millway after the rainstorm.  Beautiful rainbow light.

Dramatic skies over Craigville beach, and just a few brave souls fighting the cold northeast wind.

O fall.  I adore you.

Yesterday afternoon I watched the West Barnstable firefighters as they practiced their fire skills and burned down the Sandy Neck Beach bath house.  Pretty awe inspiring.

See all my fire photos here.


day 292 of 365

I cleaned up the container garden on my deck yesterday, and all that's left, except for a few scraggly tomatoes and herbs, is the Swiss Chard, growing happily in the afternoon sun.

I'm musing on simple food over on Mortal Muses today.  Come on over!

Bubbly birdbath bokeh....

Stop by my other blog to see photos of my recent visit to Vanderbilt Mansion.

There was something poetic about this filigree of ivy growing on this stucco wall.  Delicate and lovely.

This young woman was painting the Hudson River and New York mountains on the grounds of Vanderbilt Mansion

Back from my road trip.  Going to be catching up a bit.

I love these berries, that turn multiple easter-egg colors in the fall.  Anyone out there what they're called? Or want to make up a name?


day 284 of 365

I'm facing my fears and contemplating flying over on Mortal Muses today.  Won't you join me?


day 283 of 365

Run -- don't walk -- to your nearest library or bookstore, and get this book of amazing photographs by Stephen Wilkes.  You can read more about it and see an excerpt gallery at

She could change everything about her
Using colors bold and bright
But all the colors mix together
To gray.

One foot in front of the other.

Here on Cape Cod, sand gets it's own vanity plate.

I'm sharing some of my impressions of life on Cape Cod on Mortal Muses today.  Won't you stop by?


day 279 of 365

The forbidden path is often the most enticing.  To follow or not?  That is the question.


day 277 of 365

I love this boy's expression of excitement and awe.  I think we might have a future pilot in the making.
