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!

Our heroes pull out all the stops to try and win the tournament, break the witch's hold on King Arthur, and find a way back to the present in this legendary story of Scooby Doo in King Arthur's Court. REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although

The Invisible Man

AVAILABLE TODAY! RATED R 125 MINUTES AMAZON What you can't see can hurt you. Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy scientist, Cecilia (Elisabeth Moss) escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding. But when her abusive ex suddenly dies, Cecilia suspects his death was a hoax. As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia's sanity begins to unravel while she desperately tries to prove she is being hunted by someone nobody can see.  REVIEW: I sorta hated the beginning. Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see. It doesn't take long to get light though. Thankfully. Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too. Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would
