Cherries

The Pacific Northwest was our destination of choice for vacation this year.  We traveled the Oregon Coast and through the states of Washington and  Idaho.  During our drive from Oregon to Washington we went through Cascade Locks.  I saw the opportunity for the first image right as we entered the town.  I had to stop to capture this man’s essence.  He was so charming.  When I asked if I could photograph him he said “Sure, my name is…”  If only I could remember his name.  But I kid you not, it was something similar to Bobby Dean Jones that just totally fit him and his personality.

For a more artistic spin on cherries, I spent a bit of time photographing the very delicious jewels I had in my kitchen.

Life is a Bowl of Cherries I

Cherries are Mysterious

When I sound the fairy call, gather here in silent meeting,

Chin to knee on the orchard wall, cooled with dew and cherries eating.

Merry, merry, take a cherry, mine are sounder, mine are rounder,

Mine are sweeter for the eater, when the dews fall, and you’ll be fairies all.” – Emily Dickinson

“If life is a bowl of cherries, then what am I doing in the pits?” – Erma Bombeck
