3rd week of November’s Art Every Day and also in NaBloPoMo

November 20th

Today is day #20 of AEDM and NaBloPoMo – and also the – ahem – Friday Friendly Fill Ins. Sorry, I am once again so late to the party, but seriously these fill ins are such fun, you definitely should check them out. The Friendly Fill-Ins are four fun and easy statements to complete. Ellen of 15andmeowing provides the first two statements and the final two are offered by Annie of McGuffys Reader. We try to make sure they will be fun to both answer and share. On Friday, the linky will be posted at or about 12:00 AM. Please come back, link up, and share your thoughts! Below are this week’s statements with the blanks.

I also wanted to continue my photo series of the Pacific Northwest. After showing you photos of the beach and driftwood twice (here with webs), the moss&fern and also the Nooksack Falls, it is now time to show you the Nooksack River. Boy, did we find a great spot to wander around and also dip our feet into the ice cold water (mental note: Bring something to dry your feet with). It was awesome and I will let below photos speak for themselves.

As you will see these are all (semi) long exposures to emphasize the flowing water. I have almost the exact same photos freezing the water’s flow and I will show you those in tomorrow’s post. Then you can tell me which way to photograph water you prefer.

  1. One Thanksgiving tradition I have is none. Well, o.k. the turkey, homemade everything i.e. stuffing, gravy, cranberry sauce etc., but Thanksgiving was not a big thing where I grew up, and it still isn’t. Now with David and living in the US, of course, it has grown (on me) exponentially.
  2. Black Friday – no way, Jose. Crowds and I, we don’t do so well together. Unless it is a well planned, and well worth it occasion like a concert or The Rockefeller Treelighting or such. But for shopping?! No, no, no, not me.
  3. The best part about Thanksgiving Day is may I be honest? For me it is the long weekend. If my family were close it would definitely be the family get together, but not this year. Maybe we’ll meet for Christmas.
  4. One Thanksgiving, hmm – sorry, I am drawing a blank. As I said, I am fairly new to the holiday known as Thanksgiving, but if I had to pick something it would be Thanksgiving at David’s parent’s place, because… family… and Thanksgiving

I hope you enjoyed these photos (gallery below – please click on a photo to open them to view larger, it is worth it) of the PNW.




If I have time I will be linking with one or more of the fine people in this collection – check them out!
