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!

  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!

#Recipe Minestrone Soup

When you wake up, you remember nothing. Not your name, or where you were born, or the faces of the people you knew. Just a single warning written to yourself before you forgot it all:
"Emily, it’s me. You.
Don’t ask about the last two years… Don’t try to remember and don’t go digging. Your life depends on it. Other lives depend on it.
By the way, Emily isn’t your real name. You died in an accident. You paid extra for that."
You start over in a remote place with a new name, a fresh life. Until the day a stranger tells you you’re being hunted for the sins of a royal ancestor who died centuries before you were born.
You don’t believe him, until they come for you. Now you’re on the run.
Every answer you need lies i…
