These Are a Few of My Favorites

I have been going through the pictures again, only this time I thought I would share some of the favorite pictures that I have taken over the years. Believe me when I say that there are A LOT more than these but I didn't want to scare you away. I sure had fun looking at them though and thinking about the times when they were taken.


A spontaneous game - Accra, Ghana
We were visiting some micro-entrepeneurs and all of a sudden, here was an entire group of girls on this dusty street just dancing and playing a jumping game.

A very busy bee

Maxwell, the most perfect dog in the world. Well all except for that getting into the garbage and ripping up pieces of paper into a thousand little pieces thing.

Chicago, my kind of town

My sweet Zachary Clarence

These woman are micoentrepeneurs who work so hard to better their lives and the lives of their families - Chennai, India

The palm oil seller's children - Ghana

The Watertower in Chicago

Bruna and her son - Lima, Peru

At least it isn't a pig butt. Sleep on little porker, you will be bacon soon enough

Are these not the cutest faces in the world! We were visiting a school for orphan children in Salem, India. The girls and boys would have stood there forever and let me take as many pictures as I wanted.
This is Blanchard Hall at Wheaton College where The Engaged One and The Shoe Queen are students. The Almost Son-in-Law is also a student here. I grew up in Wheaton and spent many an hour on the campus.

  1. Oh, how I miss Zachary ... how he'd purr and growl at the same time.

    Loved ALL the shots. Talk about diversity!

  2. Wow, great photos! I love them all but the palm oil seller's children is my favourite. They are so captivating!

    Be well ~Andrea~

  3. You've been all over! I love the pictures, especially the ones from India and Peru! I want more! I want to hear what you were doing there and where you went and who you went with and ... do I seem stalker-ish to you?

  4. @ Dandy- Oh I can go on and on about the travel and one of these days I will. We tend to take an international trip about every twelve months or so. You never know where we might end up.
