last week through my lens.....

this special small town is the town where my grandma lives, where my mother grew up.  these are the things which I treasure and was happy to capture through the lens of my camera:
her front door:
her deck which has wonderful views:

she loves to feed the birds:
I will always remember her house for their wind chimes, this particular one came home with me:


 her wonderful garden:
 the ferry:
 yes, that is a prison....far...far...away...that water ICE cold....
 the narrows bridge:
 yes, that is a raccoon, I nicknamed him fatty...I shot this with my telephoto lens ready to run....
 around town, they have historical houses:
 
 
the trains run right behind her house:
 the flowers are not native to AZ:
 the ocean changes so quickly:
 the sky was covered with clouds and parted a little to give a peak at what color the sky was:
 Love the view at night:
 And the last view I had before I came home, those are the Olympics peaking out behind the islands, the first time I saw them the whole time I was there....
 it was a wonderful trip visiting with family remember someone special.  Also, catching some things on "film" that are captured in my mind....

Thanks for stopping in for a visit today!
