Week 2 ~ Sun (8/365)
Imagine my surprise when today, forecasted as mostly cloudy, I chose this week's theme of The Sun.
I went out this morning intent on capturing a photo of the actual Sun itself, but in the back of my mind I thought to keep my eyes open for another option.
Lakeside hosts an annual Arts & Crafts Show on the lawn in front of the Hotel Lakeside. Today was the first day for that, so I decided to browse the booths. It was quite an interesting time of strolling and admiring the varied handicrafts for sale by remarkable artisans.
Had I looked harder and longer, I probably could have found additional suns to shoot. However, it was hazy, hot and humid and I didn't want to linger. In addition, I had a rather lengthy conversation with one of the vendors (he makes gorgeous pens out of wood) which was both fascinating and disturbing. I won't go into any details on the subject matter, but suffice it to say I was ready to make haste in taking my leave and heading home into the air-conditioned sanctuary of my apartment!
So...here is today's sun photo... a delightfully welcoming hand-painted birdhouse. :)
