"Snow or Winter"

The theme this week is "Snow or Winter " by Lew.  Mac, Kathy, Lew, Christine and I have a little contest to show a new theme header each week. We now post anytime before 4 PM EDT on Wednesdays and voting begins after that. Christine is gone this week.

We haven't had much snow this year so far. This has been a really mild winter so far. We had 50 F last week and little snow. Lucky for me we got our second snow yesterday. It was one of those beauties that cover the trees, lucky me. My back yard became a winter wonderland.
As you can see the snow put a covering on all the trees.
I was so happy to get new photos after such a mild start to winter. I actually used my snow blower for the first time this year.

There is nothing that goes better on a cold February night then a bowl of home made chili. The funny thing is it is 54F today and it will still taste good. My wife is a excellent cook. Drop by and have a bowl.
She make a great dish.

Check out all the goodies in the pot.
The lid back on and ready to eat.

"Shadows"

The theme this week is "Shadows" by Mac.  Mac, Kathy, Lew, Christine and I have a little contest to show a new theme header each week. We now post anytime before 4 PM EDT on Wednesdays and voting begins after that. 



I guess Mac didn't know we have no sun in the NE in January and February. I had to go to another seasons archives to find some shadows.

The walkway in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park Beaver Pond provided a neat shadow effect. It was both curvy and disappearing at the same time.
 This is a morning dove on my deck casting its shadow.
A trio of Alpaca mowing the grass in the field.
This is a walkway into the water on the Cuyahoga River.
These are some bridge piers casting their shadow into the river.

There was a Samurai Warrior, watch the sword.
Here was a Ghost Buster Club, "Who You Gonna Call?".
Some people dressed up pretty cool.
Other were just plain wild.

"Far Far Away"

The theme this week is "Far Far Away" by Kathy.  Mac, Kathy, Lew, Christine and I have a little contest to show a new theme header each week. We now post anytime before 4 PM EDT on Wednesdays and voting begins after that. 

In a land "Far Far Away" there is a country at the the meeting of Europe and Asia. We visited Turkey three years ago with my son's band. I never dreamed I would be in a country so far away from my home in the U. S. A.

We left the late Winter snows of Ohio and head to Istanbul, Turkey. The Blue Mosque was quite a site.
A view from the inside. 
 All packed up and ready to travel with my daughter and her fiance. 
So the views change and the flag is different. 
You had to say you weren't in Ohio anymore. 
The minarets could be seen from the bus.  
A palace to behold. 
 I thought a good reminder of the spice trade through the area would be the Spice Market.


So, back to the Spice Market to see their wares. 
Many offerings from which to choose.
Do you want a sweet treat?
How can you omit the Roman influence with an aqueduct crossing the street. What engineering marvels there were to see from the days of  Constantinople when the Emperor Constantine the Great made this the center of Roman rule.
