Seasons & BW Wednesday

Today I'm joining Jesh (St. Germains) & Adrienne (My Memory Art) for their memes:

SEASONS  and BLACK & WHITE WEDNESDAY











Saturday there were 2 festivals going on at once.  One was the Return to the River Salmon Festival.  Featured here are some of the Native American Dancers that performed during the event.



Some pretty grass that I decided to photograph on our walk up to where the ducks (rubber ones) were released for the Ducky Derby.


Izzy The Camel is a popular attraction at the Ducky Derby

A view of a farm across the creek from where the festivals were held.  It was a cloudy day but only a "sprinkling" of rain fell so while it was windy & cold the rain held off to everyone's relief.

A sea of colorful ducks floating down towards the finishing line.

A lone duck that drifted away from the pack.

Hooray because the first Klicker Strawberries of the Season were ready on Saturday so we had our first shortcake of the summer.  Yum!

Just because he's too cute not so share,  Bandit enjoying the sun streaming into the living room.

  13. Great post Ida, and before I begin I would like to say how much I loved your header photo. That collection of chalk drawings, so cute! Great captures of the festivals. I have always enjoyed the traditional clothing of Native Americans. The black and white photos were all really neat and if I had to pick a favorite I would say it was your last shot of Bandit, but truly I loved each photo. They showed what a great day it was. Thanks for sharing them.

  19. Gorgeous photos, Ida. I loved them all, but that black and white kitty photo was epic. Your strawberry shortcake also looked pretty epic! Any chance you could mail some over to us hungry folk in London? 😍

  20. That Bandit B&W shot!!! That deserves to be enlarged and framed. What a great capture.
    I bet that lone duck was the winner. LOL
    I think our own duck race is coming soon - I should get some pics of my own, because that looks really cool.

  22. Beautiful series of images! Love the bright colors of the Native American costumes and the shortcake in contrast with the black and white grasses. I have to say the cat is my favorite image.
