The weeks nancy merrill photography challenge is: shy.
My friend Bjorn and I were coming home from having dinner with her family tonight when we caught a rainbow in front of us. This is one of those moments that it really pays to be the passenger as I can take pictures.
So I’m snapping along hoping to get a really good one when it starts to rain. Just like that a second, more brighter, rainbow pops up. It was so cool and very pretty.
These are not great shots as the lighting was getting dark, but the rain effects on the windshield was pretty neat.
As the rain stopped again the brighter rainbow faded, then they were both gone. I haven’t seen a rainbow in a long time and Bjorn and I had a wonderful moment trying to get that one shot while bumping along freeway laughing and oohhhing and ahhhing.
Imagine my surprise and delight to get home and find that the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge this week is : On the move.
While I did not publish this from my phone (still learning how to resize images on it), I did take the photos on my Samsung Galaxy.
My brother’s ‘Hon-Dac’. Its an old Honda Coupe (600cc) he modified with a pterodactyl frame, wing and nose piece. This was one of two pterodactyls ultralights he flew. While he was not able to get it to ‘fly’ before he passed in the mid 90’s, he did get coverage in an aviation magazine in ’93.
My brother once commented that he loved the pterodactyls so much because they almost flew themselves, they have such incredible lift. He also used to cut the engine and just glide and listened to the silence while conserving gas. He had a cloud form in his lap once, I wish I could have seen that!

Have you made your bucket list? Now’s the time — write about the things you want to do and see before you become dust in the wind.
Bucket list… Thats a big one.
That should enough for now. Bucket lists change with the wind for me. Who knows what I’ll want next week. Some of these are real achievable, some others not so much.
I really don’t think about it much.
What’s your biggest junk food weakness? Tell us all about it in its sugary, salty, glory.
The first thing I think of is Larry Groce’s ‘Junk Food Junkie’ released back in ’76. While I’m still a bit of a snacker, I’m not the junkie I was as a kid.
I think my most favorites are potato chips and pizza. Now, as some of you know, I went gluten free last year. If I could get a really, REALLY good pizza, I’d probably be in bad shape. As it is, pizza is ok, so I don’t eat it as much as I used to. Chips on the other hand… sigh. I love just plain ol salty chips. No flavors, just dippers. Lays classics and Ruffles classic are the best. Kettle style? Tim’s and Cape Code. The way they either just melt on the roof of your mouth or the crunch and snap. Its heaven.
