a bright day
sneak peak - L & T
This was a delightful day in my eyes. It began with church and a meaningful sermon. Then after reading Shutter Sisters post on inspiring movies in cinematography, T and I got excited about having a movie marathon with several of the movies mentioned. Because it was starting to cloud up I thought it would be a perfect rainy day activity, so I went in search of a few movies – namely Great Expectations and How to Make an American Quilt – I couldn't find either one of them. Just as well, because by this time the sun was shining nicely. We decided to go to the abandoned lots we had been eyeing for days. There is a street closeby that all the houses been torn down in preparation for road expansion – the lots have been empty and the grasses growing high. For weeks I had been telling T about how perfect this location was. One of the first things I wanted to do when she got home for summer was to go shoot some photos in there, but the weather has been so rainy we were afraid of swamp land. Well darn if they didn't start cutting the grass Friday. But, there are still a few lots with some tall grasses so we went there today. We brought her pink chair... We had such a great time taking pictures of each other. We stayed a long time enjoying the sunshine and the peacefulness of the surroundings plus we felt completely comfortable – no worries of being caught for trespassing, etc. Hopefully we got a few shots worth posting. If not we'll be going back.
Afterwards we went out for an early mexican dinner in hopes of eating outdoors but the bottom dropped out just as we got there. No worries, we had a very charming waiter and the food was excellent – chips and salsa, fish tacos and lava cake to finish it off.
Now for the movies I did rent – both of them were horrible. Better luck tomorrow finding Great Expectations.

If you care to visit, I, Leslye, have another blog - AutumnSun where I ramble around different paths and pleasures of my own.
