July Theme Day: Blue




I have been on a blogging break for awhile now due to traveling and grandkids' visits, but I just had to pop in to post a few photos for Theme Day from my recent trip to Greece. I took these photos a little over a week ago while I was visiting the Greek Island of Santorini. My daughter and I had a wonderful time and as you can see, the scenery was breathtaking.

The first day of the month is Theme Day in the City Daily Photo Community. The theme for July is "Blue". To see other participants' interpretations of the theme, please visit the City Daily Photo Theme Day gallery here.

Peacock



It's not every day you see a peacock standing on the side of the road, so when you do, you turn around and go back to get proof. I'm sorry that the photo is not as clear as the video. This peacock was standing near a rural road just north of town. As you can see from the video, he decided not to stick around too long to have his picture taken.

Front


There was a weather front moving in just as the sun was going down when I took this photo.

Pale ale


This sign is being used as a decoration in a hallway of a local restaurant. I had to take the photo at this angle because I couldn't get far back enough directly in front of it without going outside and trying to take the picture through a window.

I want to wish my daughter a very happy birthday today! She's hitting a big milestone, but somehow I'm the one that's feeling old.

Antique


I saw this antique toy fire truck sitting on the counter while I was eating lunch at a local restaurant. My grandson wanted to take it home with him.

Hippocrates


A portrait of Hippocrates on the outside wall of the one of the buildings of the Florida State University College of Medicine. This is one of three works entitled The Triad of Medicine by artist Steven Weitzman. You can see the other two portraits and read more about the process he used to create these beautiful pieces on his website here.

Who are you looking at?


This duck was giving me the eye when I zoomed in to take its photo on Lake Ella.

Gulf view


I must confess I did not take this photo, my daughter did. She was staying at a hotel in Dunedin, Florida last week and walked across the street from her hotel to get a closer look at this view. The land you see in the distance is one of the barrier islands sitting between the shore where she was standing and the Gulf of Mexico.

See through boat


Hanging from the ceiling in the restaurant from yesterday's post of the patriotic fish was this small fishing boat. My youngest grandson was particularly fascinated with the see-thru window on the bottom.

Patriotic fish


Interesting looking fish mounted over our table at a local seafood restaurant.
