U Is For Up

How often do you look up?
It is one of my most favorite things to do. Especially with a camera in my hot little fist.
You just never know what you will see.
Maybe a bird, like this Peregrine Falcon, will be perched upon a light post in the city.

Or you see a plane out for a jaunt from the Heritage Warplane Museum.

Or maybe it's a Supermoon that only happens once every 18 years.

Whatever it may be... keep in mind a quote from Dr. Martin Luther King....

"Only look down on someone if you are helping them up."

  1. I like UP - it is very uplifting and fun. I like your up photos too - I like shooting up and down, in the light and in the dark. Oh oh - I feel a Dr. Seuss ego-state arising!

  2. Very creative use of the "U". I took a few photos of that super moon, but couldn't quite figure out how to work them in...good job.
    thanks for stopping by for a visit.

  3. Hi Freda,
    Great "U" post. Love the Falcon, we have a few around here but they are very elusive. Have a great day!

    Just Books

  4. I look up frequently at the planes approaching the Los Angeles airport. My house is under one of the landing approaches but we're far enough away that the planes are usually too high up to be able to hear. I just can't help but look up now and then to see them.
    The Dr. King quote is a good one.

    Hope you join us in the Blogging from A to Z Challenge Reflections Mega Post on Monday May 2nd.

  5. I was just talking about September 11th with my children and I remembered how quiet the skies were for days, and how when planes began flying again, the first few times I heard them I looked up to make sure I could see them too.

    Great post, Freda.

  6. Love the use of U and the pictures. Ofcourse the last quote did it for me. Fantastic Freda!

Never Let You Go by Chevy Stevens #EarlyReview (64)

The author of Still Missing targets her readership with a novel that hits all the notes they come to expect from her―and ratchets up the stakes even more. Lindsey Nash has left an abusive relationship and her ex-husband was sent to jail. She has started over with a new life, her own business, and a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When her husband is finally released, Lindsey believes she has cut all ties. There is no way he can ever find her and her daughter again. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her, tracking her every move. Her new boyfriend is threatened. Her home is invaded. Even her daughter is shadowed. Lindsey is convinced it's her ex-husband, even though he claims he is a different person and doesn't want to do her any harm. But can he really change? Is the one who wants her dead even closer to home than she thought?

As some of you may know, I love taking photos. Photography is a hobby of mine, but I often add some of my work to my walls. Recently, I was contacted by Canvas Champ, a company dedicated to making your photos come to life on canvas prints.

Since I had recently moved, the first thing to do was to walk around the place and see where a piece of art needed to be placed. Then it was about finding the perfect photo in my collection to hang there. Next, I was onto the website to start building the print.

Once you start, it will seem like there is too many options, but it's so easy to use. You choose the size, and within a few minutes you will be done and waiting for your art to show up.

The user interface is a simple design that you can easily get through with no hassle, even if you are not computer savvy a…
