A patch of bright light illuminated the redwood sorrell during our morning walk through Armstrong Woods (Guerneville, California).
Today, I’m reminded of a relaxing afternoon spent with my daughter, reading under the magnificent redwoods.
I captured our daughter’s reaction the instant she realized that she just missed the goal. So many feelings are expressed in this moment, without speaking a single word!
A change of plans created an unexpected morning; I had time to relax, explore the city (with camera in hand, of course), and enjoy the beautiful morning light.
I discovered gorgeous colors and textures,
bricks. windows, and metal all joined together in an alleyway,
a shiny new drum set needing a player,
the rich reds of an antique couch through the curtains,
and a seemingly magic doorway.
Being able to take my time and capture the beauty of everyday was a wonderful way to start my morning.
A memory from our last day of summer vacation this year.
I’m finding myself drawn to the beauty in reflections of color, no matter where my day takes me.
Whether I’m at our local car show,
walking past the motorcycle repair shop,
sitting at the bakery’s metal tables,
enjoying a finger puppet show,
or during a quiet board game at home,
reflections of color keep grabbing my attention; I love what I see!
On this first Favorite Photo Friday, I want to share a photo from this summer: Quiet Morning Redwoods. For me, this image captures the memory of a wonderful vacation, a restful morning, and the magnificence of the Russian River.

with water droplets sparkling in the morning sun
bright light on a white picket fence
in the morning fog
with a newly fallen leaf in the morning light
in the warm light of the setting sun
