I envision Michelangelo, Vermeer, Rembrandt and all the other great masters must have begun drawing or painting at an early age. Imagine the thrill their parents, grandparents and other family members must have had when they witnessed the progress of their budding artist. Perhaps my 2 year old grandsons colorful circles, waves and scribbles will one day be worth a cool million. To me his art is priceless!
Last fall after visiting the Denver Botanical Gardens to see the Chihuly Exhibition with family we stopped at a nearby ice cream parlor for a treat. This two wheeled bike/scooter was locked up outside the shop next door. The owner of the shop was standing in the doorway and I commented to him that I had never seen anything like it before. He said it belonged to one of his employees and it was his main means of transportation. I am curious if anyone else has ever seen one, looks like an intersting way to travel.
The Lakewood Ranch Digital Photography Club held their first photo scavenger hunt today. Those who gathered formed groups of 4 and were given a list of photos required. Each category of photos were awarded so many points that where tallied at the end of our allotted 2 1/2 hours. The group with the most points won lovely miniature trophies. One person in each group was the photographer and the other 3 members were required to be in each photo. Our group came in second but, we had lots of fun racing through Lakewood Ranch taking photos. I choose 5 group photos to highlight; Below The Knees, Mail Truck, Person With Tattoo(in our case persons!), Forced Perspective, and Someone Famous(David Tutera, a famous fashion designer). Many thanks to Deedie and Jan who kept track of photos taken and had eagle eyes for spotting the photos to take and Lori for so carefully driving us around even when we yelled stop at the last minute!!
