A woman of a certain age....or the world around me...

Hubby and were looking at a job the other day...
while he was on the roof...I got out my camera...

I just love the design of this wall...

such a cool little court yard area...

love the metal window covers....


I think this is cool with the paint peeling off and the brick showing through..

you can see where vines use to be attached to the building...

the wild vines love this place...
gives it charachter...

they are turning this building into a indoor craft bazaar...
with local talents selling there goods...
I can't wait to see how it turns out...
I'm so glad I have my blog to post all the things I see...
and since I have started blogging I seem to notice details more...
different angles...designs...colors...shapes...
maybe I just appreciate the world around me more..
since I'm a woman of a certain age...
don't you just love that expression...
what does it mean???
I'm 48 and darn proud of it....
Wife...mother...daughter...Grammie...sister...Aunt
friend....and a proud Texas girl....
what does age have to do with it any way...
well don't know where all that came from..
but feel better now....must be because I'm that age...
you know a woman of a certain age...
LOL....

Ooo! I know what you mean about looking around more--especially for photos. Maybe we have learned that simple things are more important, since we are 'of a certain age'!!

I like that - a woman of a certain age - sounds poetic. As usual, you have a great eye for photography.

That building and courtyard is nice, I really like the courtyard.

In my opinion age has nothing to do with it. Every year we live is a good year. Just think...about all that wisdom that we are gaining as the years go by. Not to mention all the beauty we behold.

48? Geez, you are just a baby. The trick is hanging out nursing homes. You will feel young and spry and absolutely like you visited the fountain of youth!

Love the pictures. That building seems quite fascinating.

You always have an artist's eye. I love the view of the world from your perspective....

P.S. I am 51, yikes.

I'm a woman of a certain age, too... but a different certain, as in about 10 years older! Oops, I probably shouldn't have admitted that.
Blogging is great for developing an eye and noticing details. I find myself being far more observant as I think of how I might present something in a post.
