Geese at school



On weekdays I take my youngest grandson to school in the morning and pick him up in the afternoon. This week he and I enjoyed seeing a small flock of geese that were hanging around his school for a several days. I took the first picture from inside the school grounds while we were watching them from the car. I took the second picture from the street on the other side of the fence as we were leaving to go home. The two in the back on the right are on the other side of the fence.

Look up


Looking at the sky through the branches of an oak tree dripping with Spanish moss. I took this picture while I was sitting on a bench in the shade watching my grandkids play on the playground at J. Lee Vause Park near Lake Jackson.

Fancy mailbox


I liked the looks of this mailbox I saw while taking a walk in one of the older neighborhoods near downtown.

Yarn Therapy


I love this sign in front of a local yarn shop near Lake Ella. I may have to go inside after visiting their website.

Music by the lake


This guy was spending the afternoon playing a little music while sitting in the park next to Lake Ella. I could hear him from way over on the other side of the lake where I parked my car, which is why I ended up sitting on the bench nearby.

Ice Skating in Florida


The ice rink at the Centre of Tallahassee opened the day after Thanksgiving, so I took my two oldest grandkids there while they were visiting me last week. So much fun!

Enjoying the lake

Blue Skies


Looking up at the sky through the bare branches of one of the few trees around here that has already lost all of its leaves.

December Theme Day: Transitions



I'm pretty sure this is a Cicada in the process of molting or shedding its exoskeleton. It was perched on the side of a curb in the parking lot of the library and I took these pictures at the end of last summer. It appears to be about halfway out as you can see the old brown exoskeleton at the bottom and the green head emerging at the top. The whole process takes several hours and I think it is fascinating, even though the insect is a bit ugly. Cicadas make a lovely singing sound in the trees at night. Go to this link to watch a video of a cicada molting.

The first day of the month is Theme Day in the City Daily Photo community and this month's theme is Transitions. To see other participants' interpretation of the theme, you can visit the CDP Theme Day gallery here.

Learn to Ride


Last week I posted a photo of a sign in front of Lively Technical Center. This sign was right next to it. I'm not sure these classes would prepare someone for a career, but they might save a few lives.
