This Could be Shadows, But No, It’s…

66. Corners

66. Corners

Details and shadows from a renovated 1895 Victorian home. Imagine building a home with 9 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, and a ballroom occupying  the entire third floor. Then build it on the top of a bluff overlooking the mighty Mississippi River. Now a bed and breakfast, the home was originally built for a family of four.

For some reason, the angles and shadows and detailing in this photo really appeal to me.

Crocodile Eyes

88. Eyes

88. Eyes

Usually when a croc is cruising, you can only see one of his eyes. But he was gliding ever so slowly, and so his reflection was quite perfect.

Two crocodile eyes.

Hole in the Wall

350. Wall

350. Wall

Seems quite a few repairs have managed to keep this wall standing, and the window frame and gutter functioning.

Though just barely, it would appear.

Drive By, Shooting

18. Baby, Its Cold Outside

18. Baby, It's Cold Outside

When it is absolutely, positively too cold to be outside taking photos for even a few minutes, you do the next best thing…

Very metallic. Nothing but metal.

Mermaid’s Macaw

261. Risky

261. Risky

The sign on this macaw’s stand said Approach at Your Own Risk. And if I read this bird’s body language correctly, he seemed to be saying the very same thing.  I kept my distance and even said a few “pretty birds,” but I don’t think he was too impressed.

By the way, the macaw and his brother live in a huge set-up in the middle of the Mermaid Car Wash. It was busy on a sunny Sunday afternoon, as half the drivers in the city were checking to make sure their cars were still underneath an inch thick layer of sand, salt, and frosty mud.
