This past year as I have driven to Sealy and beyond bridges, brick and stone work, and fields that I saw along the drive were noted for the day I could get Roy to come with me and take pictures. Yesterday was that day. Roy had planned that we would start out for our day when he returned from Bible study but we didn't leave as quickly as we had planned. I have been fighting off this sore throat for several days and Saturday it took me some time to get moving. We hit the road around 11:00 and our first stop would be the bridge on I 10. Over the years this bridge has frequently spoken to me...not like with a voice but with its beauty and design. I've never known if the red was rust or paint and I'm still not sure but Roy captured the beauty of steel, wood and stone against the overcast sky. He wanted there to be more sunlight but in my heart I knew the lighting for the pictures was perfect for what I envisioned. I hope we go back to this spot in the spring so that Roy can take the pictures he envisioned. I am a sucker for dormant trees and vegetation.
After Roy downloaded his pictures I played around with a few of them. Taking the graffiti off the stone foundation and playing around with sepia and black and white.
After spending time at the bridge that happens to go over the Brazos River, we got back on the road. Since we were heading Brenham way, I called Mimi to see if she and Mike wanted to meet us at Nathan's for lunch. I love God's timing, well not always but in this case, because she was writing me an email at the moment we called her.
Mimi met us at Nathan's. Channel 11 had just done a report of how great the food is there and the place was packed. It is kind of like a smaller Buc-cees. Afterwards we had to do the photo op and we normally take our pics by the Nathan's sign but it was too cold to take pictures outdoors.
I started this post this morning listening to our church service on the web. Now it is afternoon and we just got back home. Roy is out riding his trek. We met Dena for brunch and then we went to Francesca's while Roy went to Rocket Fizz, newest and coolest candy and soda pop place in La Centerra. Then Roy and I did a Whole Foods run and a quick pick up in World Market. Oh, I feel a nap coming on and I have homework. It has been a good weekend.
