Daily Post 1143-  109/365   4/19/2014  - A Ktchen Scene  We were invited in to a number of homes when walking through Havana. The leader of our tour group has cultured some lovely relationships in the years he has been traveling and taking people through the streets of Havana. It is alway interesting in every country I've visited to see inside the homes of others when we travel. Though the kitchen is old and worn, it was not dirty..like Maria's that I showed you before a few weeks ago..the walls are worn, the porcelain of the sinks is worn, but that was from the effort to maintain as well as they can. The tools are neatly hung up and kitchen items are put in their place..it's just worn. The most interesting thing that struck me is that here as well as on numerous clothes lines those little plastic bags we tend to throw away are washed, dried and reused..over and over again…   We are off to NYC today so though I posted late last night I'm now posting early today so I don't miss my routine in case we get home too  late tonight. Have a good day!

Dunedin Aviary New Zealand. I took this through solid wire mesh so I know it's not the greatest shot, but I love the colors and the Parrot kept saying "Want a cup'a tea! " How could I not take its  picture!  From their published  info: The aviary breeds native birds for release for the Otago Natural History Trust, which is creating an ecological sanctuary.  The Aviary is a member of the Zoo and Aquarium Association, formerly the Australasian Regional Association of Zoological Parks and Aquaria (ARAZPA). This is the organisation for conservation-minded zoos and aquaria in the Australasian region. The Aviary participates in two Captive Management Programmes - the South Island Kaka Parrot and the Kea Parrot Programmes. Data on all our native birds are submitted to ARAZPA on an annual basis.

April 19 2014  Legacy  Today is my Dad's birthday.  We lost him a long time ago.  In his honor today I'm posting a picture of my wife and four people I wish my Dad would have lived long enough to meet. I know he would have loved these kids as I do.

East Delhi Bridge and the Delhi rapids on the Huron River. (A view of the full span of the bridge from just downstream can be seen here:  http://smu.gs/1lkkBMZ)  DP109-2014  Posted April 19; processed ditto.  This unassuming little bridge is on the National Register of Historic Places.  It is one of a very small number of metal truss bridges still in operation in Michigan.  Originally built in 1888-1890, it has survived heavy damage from a 1917 tornado, which hurled it into the river, and a second extensive restoration project in 2009 to repair the ravages of nearly a century of use and harsh weather.  It carries E. Delhi Road across the Huron River, connecting the small town of Delhi Mills with Huron River Drive.  It's a one lane bridge, with traffic lights to assure orderly crossing when traffic is heavy (mainly during summer weekends when there are many visitors to Delhi Metropark).  Taken April 18, 2014 (Title:  A View From the Bridge)  Yes, I see the N's and X and other letters.  If I hadn't already found an N I like better, I might have used this for tomorrow's letter shape challenge day.
4/19/14 - Gazania daisy; I thought the angled leaves in the bg set off the vivid colors of the gazania daisy very nicely.  Thanks for your comments on my b/w shot of the agave in bud.  Much appreciated.  The internet access is pretty sporadic here but I think I got around to most of the postings...hope so, anyway!  I surely enjoyed looking at your fantastic shots!
for July 23 post.   On the hottest day of the year , I get the idea that a walk along the trail near me will be cooler due to the tree canopy. Well it wasn't ,and the bugs were "not a pretty sight". I used SP night on my camera for this one and was hanging over a log and drenched in sweat. It could be sharper but I like the underside effect.and the effort it took merited a post.  Where have all the crickets gone?
a busy bee...  Thank you  for viewing and commenting on my posts!  Critiques welcome...  19 April 2014
