Project 52 ~ Week 21~ Play

I am not sure where the days go but they seem to be gone before I know it.
This week for Project 52 our theme is

Project 52 ~ Play

When I first joined this group and thought about doing pictures each week I had planned on doing pictures that I had just taken or at least taken close to the time that I needed to post it.  When Play was brought up for a theme I thought perfect... a couple of weeks ago I had taken pictures of a couple of bunnies in the back yard, playing.  So I went to look at those pictures as they were still on my computer.  I never got the bunnies together so they didn't really portray play.  I had to dig back in my archives and I remembered taking pictures of my nieces playing in the park in the spring.  I  also had used a new app at that time to scrapbook the pictures.  
So here is my interpretation of play:

Two seasons

I have always lived somewhere where you do know the differences in the seasons..
But when you live in the north, although there is supposed to be four seasons
there are only

Two Seasons  

Those two seasons are 

Road Construction

and this year the road construction is right out my door...


First they brought their big machinery and dug up the road...

The house was vibrating...

This all happened last week but it does give the neighbors something to do
chatting and watching what is going on.
They did have to take some time out to pump out the water out of the ditches when it rained.

So now onto this week's work

All this construction is leading to very little sleep... and when you are a night shift worker, sleeping during the day is not a easy chore on any given day.  So needless to say that this summer or should I say road construction season, I am thinking I won't get too much sleep.  Right now they are working across the street and I still have some access to getting out of my yard.  I am not sure what will happen when and if they need to dig up our side of the street.  But we do get some compensation for all this.  MDOT is sending us sometime in the near future a cheque for $100.00 just so our taxes can go up.

Project 52 - Week 20 - Vintage

I don't seem to get any other pictures on this blog except the Project 52.
Hopefully I will get more taken now that spring has finally come here to the U.P.

Project 52 - Vintage

A couple of  months ago, I went and took some pictures of a friend's newborn little girl.  I had lots of fun doing it.  Although the baby isn't vintage.  I used an old suitcase and some pearls in the picture and when I edited the picture I did it in sepia so that it would look vintage.  

Head over to these other blogs to see their interpretation of vintage:

Project 52 -Week 19 ~ Framed

Hope everyone has had a super week and your weekend is going great.
Cold and trying to snow here...
We woke up with a dusting of snow this morning and it has been snowing on and off all day.
The only good thing about snow at this time of year 
is that it only stays on the ground for a few minutes.
This week's Project 52 theme is


I had many ideas of what I could do but as the weather isn't cooperating and it was too cold to go outside,
I decided to go through my pictures and I came up with this one.

This picture was taken last fall, on Brockway Mountain. Although I didn't get the complete circle, I love how the sun's ray was framing what I was taking.  This picture was taken with my point and shoot camera.

Project 52 Week 18 - Leaves

This week's theme for 

Project 52 is Leaves

Now I could have gone out and taken pictures of leaves, that is if we had any kind of leaves on the trees.  As winter still is hanging out here in the U.P., leaves are far and few between.  As I was thinking of this theme, this saying kept coming to my mind.....

Turning a New Leaf

So keeping that in mind, here is my interpretation of this week's theme....

Take a look at all the other interpretation of Film..
