My favorite thing about going to Columbia Road Flower Market was that as you get closer, you see more and more people walking in the other direction carrying flowers and plants. We concluded that buying fresh flowers must be a more common occurrence in the UK than in the US.

Photo Friday: Streets of London

 I had a love/hate relationship with the street signs in London. They’re visually pleasing, but the creative placement sometimes makes them tricky for navigation. Either way, I loved collecting this series of photos.

Last weekend I attended a family reunion in South Dakota. When I wasn’t learning about my paternal ancestors, I was admiring pretty cows on a Hutterite colony and watching my cousin’s kids set off fireworks.

Colorado Adventure: A Boy in the Mountains

IMG_4525IMG_4530IMG_4534IMG_4546

After the wedding, some of us took my nine-year-old nephew on a hike up the Flat Top Mountain Trail. He was usually leading the way, excited to see what was up ahead. We hoped to make it to Bierstadt Lake at the top, but the trail proved longer than we expected. Regardless, it provided the best views of the trip.

Throughout our trip I had several opportunities to hike in Rocky Mountain National Park. We did an easy walk around Lily Lake with my three-year-old nephew, who was most excited about spotting ducks and muskrats.

Colorado Adventure: Rocky Mountain High

On our first full day in Colorado, some of my family drove as high as we could into the mountains before hitting a “Road Closed” sign. This placed us at Rainbow Curve Overlook, about two miles above sea level. I loved taking gratuitous photos of the scenery, especially as a backdrop for my family.

Colorado Adventure: Estes Park

IMG_4467IMG_4416IMG_4417IMG_4455IMG_4471

My stepbrother married his long-time girlfriend in Rocky Mountain National Park, and our immediate family took a road trip to Colorado for the occasion. We stayed in Estes Park, a lovely tourist town nestled in the mountains. As with most trips, I was especially excited for new scenes to photograph.
