A Trip with Word Art

by Deanna


I recently took a short trip to Ohio to visit my sweeties' sisters.  I am so fortunate to be such good friends with my "in-laws".  From the very moment I met Mary Jo and Sally I loved them both dearly and that was over 50 years ago.  While there we went on several adventures, ofcourse shopping was included in the schedule but the photo op journeys were the best.  Each day I discovered new sights thru the lens of my camera and since this month we are focusing on "word art" I thought I would share a little of my adventures with the added addition of words.

The first day we enjoyed lunch where I added a new addition to my palate....pickle soup. I was a tad bit hesitant, but I gotta admit it was belly pleasing.  In fact I ordered an extra container "to go" so we could enjoy it a second time.  After lunch we walked around an historic district in Dayton called "Oregon".  It is filled with old historic homes that are being renovated and I was in heaven, a kid in a candy shop with all the sights to behold.




 
On Sunday we took a "Sunday Drive" a lost past-time in America, enjoying the trip and finding this historic barn was the cherry on the top!!


Another day we walked around (with a little shopping involved) the center of "Centerville" and I captured a little bit of Fall making her appearance along an old brick wall.


But the absolute best was finding a field of sunflowers....ahhh


We are so enjoying your additions to flickr using Word Art. We still have a couple of weeks left!! Summer is almost over, it came and went so swiftly with Fall beginning on Monday one of my favorite times of the year.

As always, your photography just blows me away! And the song lyrics on some of them had me smiling. Sounds like you had a wonderful trip and made the most of it with your camera. Always love going on trips vicariously with you! I love pickles, but pickle soup? Hmmmm. . .
