Wordsmith Wednesday it is..a la Jim:)

…I was on a cruise to Alaska this past week that made it’s last stop at Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. At the wharf houseboats hosted businesses, very picturesque. Around there somewhere was a classic car show. We missed it. But,on our walk we noted a few of the cars parked on the streets. We were glad to get a few photos.

Thursday Doors – Around Brooklyn – Nostrand Ave

How would you like this to be a part of your room? Looks like the nursery ended up there. Note the child safety bars on the window. Wonder what the inside looks like..

Window on a church, not a door but I couldn’t resist, so beautiful.

The is first door with any interest I managed to get a shot of without the car behind me blowing it horn at me. Love the surround.

Couldn’t resist this one either. Look at the details in the architecture. You don’t want to see the doors now associated with these. It’s all modern day storefronts. I’ll spare your eyes…

And here are the other two doors I captured yesterday. Enjoy your holiday weekend everyone:) A good independence day to you.

Thursday Door

I was in Baltimore this past weekend. Behind the home that I stayed in was a lane. An honest to goodness lane! Most of the yards had an entry gate from it. One home actually fronted onto the lane. I was about to take a picture of it when a little old lady appeared to ask me why I was taking pictures. That halted my agenda. But she did go on to explain that her house, the very one, was built in 1925. And that the barn / garage was built in 1930. I felt busted when she asked, “why are you taking pictures”. I could only respond, “I take pictures of everything”. She explained that a crew had come through the day before to cut the grass and that there was some heavy equipment involved. She hoped I was a part of a crew coming to repave the lane. She turned out to be very nice. We chatted for a while.

By the way, how do you like that gate to nowhere, cool I thought. It’s just standing there, with age written all over it, going nowhere:) Love it!

Sidewalk Brawl

between two sparrows
a tumbling-mid-air-to-ground
brawl, a ruckus ploy

depleted, one pulls way back-
entranced, horn rouse me from wonder

spend…deplete

For Tanka Tuesday over at Colleen’s the prompt words are synonyms for Plan & Spend. I used Ploy & Deplete. See other entries here.
