Weekly Photo Challenge: Vibrant

https://dailypost.wordpress.com/photo-challenges/vibrant/

When I think of vibrant, I immediately think of Southern California and their colorful vegetation (pink cactus above)  and houses.  Below are few photos of vibrant structures in Venice, California.

Optimism During a Snow Storm–Revisited

In response to the Post Weekly photo challenge: Optimistic

Yesterday, when I posted Optimism During a Snow Storm, I was using photos from past storms.  Then just today we got a blizzard here in Staten Island.  I’ve been out all morning taking photos.
