Girl Power – Snapshot of the Day, No. 279

Happy Halloween! I thought it only appropriate to shoot this as the photo of the day since it is our scary holiday. We’re doing a story on people who own tarantulas as pets, so I tagged along with the photographer during the assignment. I’m not sure what my cats would think of these guys; butContinue reading “Girl Power – Snapshot of the Day, No. 279”

5:13 – Snapshot of the Day, No. 278

On my way out the door to find my photo of the day, I was stopped by this clock. I’ve walked past this clock – Heaven only knows how many times. I’ve never given it much thought. But today it caught my eye. Who knows why. But the way it’s presented here gives it aContinue reading “5:13 – Snapshot of the Day, No. 278”

One Man’s Trash…… Snapshot of the Day, No. 277

I got an opportunity to go to our satellite dump today to drop off some stuff and noticed these two lovely pieces just sitting outside of the dumpsters. Hmm. I suppose the previous owner just couldn’t quite bring him or herself to drop them in the garbage. No wonder, either! SOMEONE will want them! ButContinue reading “One Man’s Trash…… Snapshot of the Day, No. 277”

Second Renovation – Snapshot of the Day, No. 276

This is Warehouse Row, obviously. A Civil War era building that was turned into warehouses at the turn of the 20th century, Warehouse Row was renovated in the late 1980s or early 90s….(I can’t remember the exact date)….. and turned into an outlet mall. Slowly but surely those shops vanished and Warehouse Row became aContinue reading “Second Renovation – Snapshot of the Day, No. 276”

Game Day – Snapshot of the Day, No. 274

We went to the Alabama vs. Tennessee football game today. Alabama won – 45 to 10. It’s a huge rivalry – and even though we live in Tennessee, we are Alabama fans. They’ve been pretty good lately. This is a shot of the fans filing out of the stadium.

SHARK! – Snapshot of the Day, No. 273

We went to the IMAX Theatre tonight for date night and saw, “Great White Shark.” (We had originally planned to go to the Tennessee Aquarium as well, but it just was not in the cards today. We had a lot of obstacles. We’ll try to go sometime next week.) But anyway, the show was great.Continue reading “SHARK! – Snapshot of the Day, No. 273”

Sliced Pomegranate – Snapshot of the Day, No. 272

I took the day off today to clean the house. Yes, I’ve done it for years. I actually LOVE to clean. It is therapeutic to me. Sick, I know. But anyway, I stopped long enough to slice one of my pomegranates to get this shot. Now I’m too tired to write anything else. And myContinue reading “Sliced Pomegranate – Snapshot of the Day, No. 272”

The Grainery Next Door – Snapshot of the Day, No. 271

I notice I’m on an architecture kick now. Hmm. I’ll have to make a conscious effort to not do that tomorrow. But anyway, this is the grainery next to the newspaper. I have no idea the name of it. But I like the silos – until they catch on fire. When that happens, we allContinue reading “The Grainery Next Door – Snapshot of the Day, No. 271”

Mausoleum Ivy – Snapshot of the Day, No. 270

Poison ivy grows on a mausoleum in the Forest Hills Cemetery in Chattanooga. It’s a very old cemetery, and there are a lot of locally famous people buried there.  The primary reason I went there to shoot a photo was because there is a statue of a woman there that looks just like me. It’sContinue reading “Mausoleum Ivy – Snapshot of the Day, No. 270”
