If I had a choice between having a porch or a deck, then a porch would win any day of the week. I’m devoted to screen porches in particular. There’s nothing like having a shaded or sunny spot with no bugs and a breeze. And if it’s raining, you can still enjoy a screened porch despite the weather(provided the rain is coming down rather straight and your porch is large enough to allow you a sitting spot away from the screens).

I spend time on decks but they can get too hot in the middle of the day. The mosquitoes can eat at you in the evening, or even dusk. Forget being out there when it rains, unless you want to be wet.

Here, then, some images showing a variety of porches. Summer is on it’s way after all.

A traditional porch in Boston

Note the blue ceiling on this porch

This one has a rustic feel with its wood furnishings

A conservatory style porch in London

Another conservatory, this one in Philadelphia

A sweet porch in Charleston

An octagonal porch in Chicago

A porch with motorized Phantom screens and a fireplace

A small cottage in Los Angeles with a sweet and inviting front porch

A porch decorated with colors and plants

A wraparound porch in Portland, Maine

This porch feels very open and airy with its high ceilings

I had to include this one because I know exactly which house this is. I’ve been inside this house and this porch! The views are lovely.

Autumn Beauty

On Tuesday I spent the afternoon with a friend. We walked around Lake of the Isles. The crimson and golden hues presented plenty of photo opportunities. Here’s are some photos from the afternoon walk. Big thanks to my friend for stopping and waiting for me to capture all the images.

Last Saturday I posted a photo showing the Minneapolis Queen paddle wheeler. Sunday I went out on a boat on Lake Minnetonka with friends. I kept watching the waves being created by the boat. At some point, I thought of this photo challenge. I pulled out my cell phone to snap a few photos. Here’s a sampling of some photos I took.

I’d say these have definitely captured the theme of movement. I had no idea what quality I’d get by using a cell phone and traveling along at a fairly rapid clip on a boat. They came out surprisingly well. I posted these four because they show a variety of movement. Do you have a favorite?

A new weekly photo challenge will be posted on Friday. If you’re interested, you can find more information here: Weekly Photo Challenge on The Daily Post at WordPress.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Blue

This week’s photo challenge on the The Daily Post is ‘Blue’. So many images come to mind with this word. The sky. Water. Cobalt blue glass. Pottery. Coldwell Banker Burnet real estate signs. The blue jay. Blueberries. Hydrangeas. Where to begin? Let‘s start here:

This, to me, is quintessential blue; the beloved blue jean.

This week’s challenge is the theme “Together”.  Here are a few shots I took earlier today while out seeing homes on the Minneapolis and Saint Paul Home Tour.

It was overcast when I walked by these two bikes in East Isles. I applied a couple of Photoshop filters to this one to create an art look.

Trees along the lake were blossoming and in the pink!

A father and daughter were playing in a tree, more or less unseen but heard. They said yes to having their picture taken and gave thumbs up about their experience in the tree.
