The first feature that fascinated me is the golden-hued appearance of the buildings in the background. Although born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio, and having worked in the city and knew my way around in the 1950s, new construction and infrastructure has changed the city appearance so much that I am not able to discuss many details. (The city’s iconic Terminal Tower is seen from … Continue reading Lighting and Shadows in Cleveland

The latest kittens from next door. Barbara has been featured in this blog before…she is a rough and tumble lady that appeared from thin air long ago; she lived in the now defunct greenhouse across the road. Not sure where she lives now, she is very illusive. [all photos ©Sometimes, 2018} Continue reading No more kittens…but here’s a possibility
I spent most of three days watching the clearing of a 1.8 acre lot which I sold recently. The operation was both sad and fascinating. The company that did this work was efficient, the crews worked magnificently together, and the huge trees fell precisely as intended…where they had stood for a hundred years. (All photos are my own.) … Continue reading bringing down the trees: a study in accuracy & precision
Moby was completely black in color, here in his advanced age (17 or so) he has some graying that shows up light in the sunlight. These photos were taken in September 2017. He died in January of 2018. (©Sometimes, 2018) Continue reading The Late Great MOBY
The closing date is near, and soon most of these blooming trees in the photos will be gone forever. Not all…the part being sold is about 1.7 acres, but the remaining six or so acres will remain family property. Here are a few of the phots I took the other day when Sister (my calico house cat) and I took a walk to … Continue reading A walk with Sister down back…

Here are some shots from my walk to the back of our property. The flowers and trees are glorious this time of year, but as is obvious from some of these pictures the church clean-up crew did not seem to notice. They wanted to trim the foliage along the highway fence so traffic could see their church. We refused them access from … Continue reading A walk with Peggy through nature’s beauty…and the heavy hand of man.
We were at the greenhouse today, the first day they were open for the season. Few plants are ready to show off yet, although there are early bloomers rarin’ to go. Captivated with these little plants which were still sparkling with water drops after sprinkling. Sorry I can’t do a retake, this was a once-only shot and I’m disappointed in my photography skills. … Continue reading Water droplets sparkle in the greenhouse
Our first visit to our favorite greenhouse today. We ordered some red Million Bells, and some Lantana…for a couple of weeks from now. Meanwhile, some other plants are blooming…Rhododendron, and some Azaleas. Daffodils are done, Tulips still around but ready to make their exit shortly. So here are some Pansy Photos… (all photos on this post are © Sometimes, 2018) … Continue reading Who Doesn’t Fancy Pansies?
