Through My Eyes 360
360 as in 360* (360 degrees) because I want to share from every angle.

Updated Daily!

This slideshow is of my Instagram, which I enjoy posting photos to daily, and which has become a 'microblog' of sorts.  I'm posting the slideshow here so y'all can see the photos.  The slideshow automatically updates, showing the the most current photos first then going backwards from there about a day or two to a week (depending on how many photos I post a day).  Drop by here to see new photos and if you're on Instagram, drop by and say hello there! (Find me at BloominChickJo).

One Year Later

These are some of the photos I took locally, post Hurricane Sandy, last October and November.  I have so many more, but, despite a year having passed, I'm not at the point where I want to go back through the disc I downloaded them to. And maybe I never will be.

I am so, so, so very thankful (every day) we and our families made it through okay. Most of our friends did too, but there were some who weren't as lucky.

Love, hugs and prayers to all of us who were in her path, especially those who suffered her terrifying destruction first hand.

Whispers Of Our Past: A Lovely Spot For A Haunting

A section of a street in the town I was born & raised. That Victorian house in the background, (a restaurant for decades upon decades, but I think it was also a funeral home way back, I'll have to check with Mom) is rumored to be haunted. I can tell you the rumors are true!

Spectacular Sunset!

Tonight, I witnessed the most stunning sunset I think I've ever seen here from our coastal home! We're down in a valley, so we don't often get to see sunsets as they happen.  Everything turned pink! Everything!  It was Incredible.

Witnessing sunsets (and sunrises, though I don't see those as often), to me is such a blessing and this one last night was a blessing indeed!

(Sorry the bottom photo is blurry, with the dim lighting everywhere but in the sky, it was hard to keep the camera focused).

I love front porches!  Love, love, love them!

And these are two favorites from this past weekend.  It was the quintessential late Summer day and every porch along this street seemed to invite its' residents to stop and take a moment.

I thought I had a "Porches" series going here on Through My Eyes 360 but just created the label today, so this will be the first of many to come!

By the way, a pink front door?! Yes, please!

Summer Nights

With the heat wave just barely beginning to loosen its' grip, we ventured out last night for a ride to the other side of the river for a cold treat to soothe my raw throat. I'd been in bed 98% of the day thanks to bronchitis & a sinus infection (day 7 of these Summer cooties in fact) and Hubbs doesn't really need any excuse to go out for ice cream or ices when we have none in the house so off we went. I snapped this photo on the way back, from my passenger seat window.

When the humidity isn't suffocating and the heat isn't oppressive, Summer nights can be so beautiful!

Weekend Scenes: Steeples

I love taking photos of these two steeples. I never tire of the sight of them. And I couldn't tell you why!

The top is in our Northwestern NJ town and the bottom one is in PA.
