BABY 112/365

Baby, Theme #17.

As in, we have a new grandchild as of 8:07 this morning.

No point in wasting a perfectly good theme shot so check in tomorrow to see which theme is covered, boy or girl!

ANTICIPATION.... photos to post yet, but I can tell you that the baby theme, as well as either the boy or girl theme, will be well covered beginning this morning! Our second grandchild will be born soon.

There is some inter-family betting going on....Mr. L. has gone for 10:00 and a boy, oldest daughter is taking 9:00 and a boy; although I think it's a boy, someone has to root for a girl so I've taken 9:17 and a girl.

POWER, 112/365

Mr. Lorri has been having problems with his computer. I think I know why. He seems to have a "bug" in his "Power," Theme #239, supply.
side get a little testy when, after years of leaping to remove any tiny bug you see in the house, the mother of all bugs shows up and you yell "don't scare it off before I get my camera!"

A photo of the AOL Welcome screen. Spell Check doesn't catch those "Spelling Errors," Theme #297, that disguise themselves as other words.

Monday, April 20, 2009


Rather than risk discussion, discerning coeds know better than to walk too close to these "Feline Friends," Theme #97. This is the lion fountain near Stanley Coulter Hall on the Purdue University campus.
Legend has it that if a virgin passes nearby, the lions will roar.


The violas are resting in the kitchen sink with natural "Backlighting," Theme 109, from the window behind them.

SPIRAL, 108/365

The colorful "Spiral," Theme #298, of brake lines off the back of an 18-Wheeler we were passing on the interstate.

TOYS, 107/365

My father's "Toys," Theme #334, neatly tucked away in the garage.

PINK, 105/365

She twirled between shadows and sunshine in a frothy confection of "Pink," Theme #234.


Colored Glass, Theme #59.

Wednesday, April 15, 2009


A friend's little girl is wearing a dress I made when my youngest daughter was one year old. The bunny dress was one of my daughter's "Childhood Favorites," Theme #48. It was fun to see it worn again for Easter, 24 years later!

LAUNDRY, 102/365

The footwashing ritual at the Holy Thursday Mass creates a lot of "Laundry," Theme #167. Afterwards the towels are donated to a local shelter.

FLOWERS, 99/365

Spring has sprung and the magnolia trees in Indianapolis, IN, are covered in beautiful "Flowers," Theme #103

Wednesday, April 8, 2009


That botanical wonder, the shoe tree. I'm not certain if this is "Quaint or Quirky," Theme #248.

Tuesday, April 7, 2009

COMPUTER, 97/365

Don't you love medical technology! A "Computer," Theme #62, look at a composite PET/CT scan. That's the inside of Mr. Lorri you're viewing with his oncologist giving a fingerpoint tour of the anatomical structures from top to, er, bottom.
If only he had had this photo when our girls were teenagers. He could have definitively refuted those disgusted girl looks that said dad's brain was either absent or firmly planted somewhere other than in his head.

Monday, April 6, 2009


Sometimes getting a shot in "Silhouette," Theme #283, says so much about being a seven year old boy. The enthusiasm for the moment mixed with the measured care of negotiating those steps.

--I was waiting below for our daughter and grandson to join us on the canal walk in downtown Indianapolis. I caught Joshua before he saw me as he headed down the steps, bag of bread in hand for the ducks on the canal.--

WARNINGS, 95/365

You enter the first door, one person at a time. Pause to be scanned. When the green light blinks, you may enter the business through a second door.

Same routine when you leave.

Banking circa 2009. Photo ID, fingerprint check, weapons scan....

The door of the bank offers up "Warnings," Theme #351.

TIE THE KNOT. 94/365

We used to live in a college town where shoe tossing was a "goodbye" ritual along one street. Graduating seniors left behind their shoes, worn thin from years of walking to classes and campus bars.
In some urban areas shoe tossing is sometimes thought to be associated with the territory of drug deals or gang. Although that trick has to be a bit overused by now!

Whatever the reason, someone had to "Tie the Knot," Theme #328, in those laces before the shoes were slung up over the utility lines.

Friday, April 3, 2009


Mr. Lorri loves gadgets and nothing shows it better than the pile of "Accessories," Theme #7, he has for his phone.

I'm not even asking what the duct tape is all about....I think it's the MacGyver in him. At any given moment he can turn out his pockets and repair the world with some duct tape, a bungee cord and a toothpick.

RECYCLED, 92/365

A full shot of yesterday's cross. It was made by a metal artist who searches farm lots for old machinery. Someone's abandoned junk has become "Recycled," Theme #254 , art.

Wednesday, April 1, 2009

CHAINS, 91/365

My favorite bit of garden art is this celtic cross made from recycled machinery. It includes sharp toothed "Chains," Theme #44.
