I taught a journalism class at St. Petersburg State University a couple of years ago. I had a blast and I would love to go back. I posted more photos and observations on my travel photo blog: eurotrip.queenkv.org.
This is my entry for today’s Photo Sunday Challenge: Colorful.

Photo Friday: Crimson

April 20th, 2012

Feels like summer in Fremont. 83 Degrees.

Our rose garden is thriving the East Bay.

These yellow buds have hints of crimson.

Squishy Face, Bony Elbows

April 17th, 2012

A disturbing buzz drowns out the Sigur Ros channel on Pandora.

My hubby closes the dog door. I pour another cup of coffee and turn up the volume on moody guitar strings and Icelandic vocals.

My Saturday morning habits do not fool Daisy. She jumps up on the couch with enough force to push it against the window. She pokes her head out the blinds, bending back flimsy plastic strips. She spots the gardeners invading her home. She barks off an alarm to her pack.
A face only a mother could love?
I drag her back to the couch for more cuddles. She calms down with her dirty, chewed-up Binky. Daisy nibbled off the blue furry day a few weeks ago. Mark says we have a couple of new Binkys, on stand-by in the garage.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Two Subjects

April 16th, 2012

I miss beach weather!

I got lucky on this shot from Half Moon Bay. The photo has two kids playing by the surf. In the foreground, you can also see yellow and green paint buckets left behind in the sand.

So, I figured this photo works for today’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Two Subjects.

Coming Soon

April 11th, 2012

I spotted a film crew shooting along Battery in San Francisco, next to Jackson Square.

Officers blocked off traffic as the crew shot a flat contraption, with four wheels, roll down the street.

I bet they’ll do some CG magic over the wheels. Maybe we’ll see a fancy, future car tearing through SF Financial District. Or a fancy Hollywood star flying past the dark red brick building on Battery. I wonder if I’ll recognize the scene when it makes it on TV or the silver screen.

Mad as Hell?

April 3rd, 2012

Wow! I loved this trailer for the new HBO series, “The Newsroom.”
I wonder if Jeff Daniels is channeling Howard Beale in his anchor role.

I’m setting up my DVR to record the pilot. It could be awesome. I also find myself yelling at the screen with these pseudo-newsroom shows. Ask my hubby. I tore apart “Morning Glory.” I got snarky over impossible live shots, human camera work and the newsroom meeting before the morning news show.

I almost stopped watching “The Ugly Truth” when I saw the Sacramento morning news producer drive to work after sunrise. WTF.

Also – Thanks to Medill’s tweet, I spotted one of the lectures halls used by my classes in Evanston. Ah…memories!
