Hi! Someday I’ll say ‘the week that was’ quiet and relaxing. Sorry, can’t say that this week. But, as I rushed around on errands, or drove my kids here and there, or worked at home, I looked out for the extraordinary during those busy but ordinary days.
Like the woman in the see-through-blouse painted on the back of a local building. Why had I never noticed her before?
Like the sky on fire.
On my way back home from the beach – where my kids had been taking photos themselves – the sky took my breath away. This is a real sunset, not special effects. I was driving on a back country road and found a place to pull over near a farm when I took this shot. As I stood outside the car with my camera, a flock of geese flew past filling the sky with their honks.
Like the effort in a leap.
I love watching my son in his Karate class. One moment he has to focus. The next kick or jump.
Like the sheep in a field.
Just a normal local rural scene. With a sculpture in the background.
Like the determination of a squirrel.
Would she/he make the leap?
Like the contrast between ancient dinosaurs and a modern car.
Would they chase it? Just a scene on my local highway.
Like the smile on my daughter.
Always special to me.
But, that’s part of the magic of Project 365. Recording those moments each day in the week that was. Or contrasts. Or… These were mine for week 10.
Hope you have a wonderful week ahead,
Loved all of them. Your little girl is so adorable. Dinosaur and modern car contrast- well thought out capture!!
Have a great week!
Thank you! The dinosaurs are definitely a strange sight 🙂

Fabulous, can’t pick a favourite one this week, although I don’t think I ever manage to pick just one! The sunset is amazing, the sheep and the sculpture is a great composition and the dinosaurs made me smile 🙂
Thank you Sara! The sunset blew me away – I haven’t seen such an amazing one for yonkers

Fabulous photos Kriss, I love the comparisons between the animals and sculpture, old and new. That sunset is absolutely incredible, what a dramatic sky – must have been amazing to see it in the flesh as it were. Gorgeous smiley daughter photo 🙂
The sunset was absolutely amazing. Must be something about the particular area as the best sunsets always can be seen on a stretch of this back country road.
what a varied collection of your week. i love the contrasting ones of the sculpture and the sheep and the dinos and the cars. i could watch squirrels for hours such productive little things.
Thanks. This squirrel does everything it can to reach the birdfeeder – only sometimes succeeding.

LOve all of your pictures, especailly the dinosaurs about to chase the car and the sheep eating by the sculpture!
The dinosaurs are quite mad – I kept passing them and finally stopped there on Friday.

That first photo is so surreal especially as I needed to scroll down to see the sheep which came as such a surprise!
Mummy to boyz says
Beautiful pictures! The sculpture is striking next the sheep – it does look like the dinosaurs are chasing the car
Jo Laybourn says

Elaine Livingstone says
your daughter has a beautiful smile and love her hair.
Love the contrast between dinosaur and 4*4, and what is that red sculpture all about?
Squirrels will get into anything – they are pests but very amusing to watch.
Erica Price says
Loving the dinosaurs stalking the car.
Sheep with a giant M&M backdrop? What could be better. That one made me smile.
And that sunset is absolutely amazing!
