Five on Friday: May 1, 2015

Lets close out a week of photo sharing, and, in the same breath, open up May’s NaBloPoMo prompt of “Photos,” with five photos I haven’t shared here yet.



Nashville Skyline Sunset
My husband and I went down to the riverfront earlier this week so I could grab a new skyline photo. We were blessed with one of the most amazing sunsets I’ve seen in a long time. I’ve actually ordered a print of this image for myself, because it just keeps taking my breath away.


Scotty Alexander & Shane Sutton
I have very talented friends. Wednesday, my husband was supposed to play a gig with uber-talented friend, Scotty Alexander. However, my husband had to cancel to go drive tour bus instead. So, Scotty called fellow-uber-talented musician and friend Shane Sutton. I went down to see them play and was rightfully blown away.


Meet Mama Mockingbird. I got to meet her when I stumbled upon her nest full of hungry babies while trimming bushes. Needless to say that bush will just stay… well… bushy…. until they all grow up and move out.


Every year, I treat myself to a new hanging basket of flowers. Sometimes I treat myself to multiple new hanging baskets. My new addition for 2015 is this gorgeous red impatien. Nice pop of color to the front of my house!


Today’s NaBloPoMo opening topic is “Do you like taking selfies? Why or why not? Photo: You” The easy answer? Yes, yes I do like taking selfies. It’s fun and gives me a nice little self-confidence boost. I also enjoy entering a monthly contest over at G+ in which you submit an artistic self portrait on a given topic. April’s topic was “Wet.” The above photo was going to be my entry… until I realized I’d subconsciously ripped off another entry already in the contest. (I’d looked at other entries for inspiration.) So, I pulled the entry but kept the photo.
