  1. Beautiful shots, Jesh, and also your painting. I thought it was Rapunzel before I read your note. Interesting how some people “overlook” certain things when they are in need of help and then once they’re out of hot water, the go back to condemning and moralising…
    Thanks for taking part in the “My Sunday Best” meme.

  2. That’s a lovely painting of Rahab. Yes, a prostitute. I remember my second grade teacher telling us that , although she emphasized the rope 🙂

    1. Thank you, Deborah! Heard that a fire was burning closer to you (S. lake Tahoe) and is now contained? Did you have power outages or not? We had several here! Yes, it’s nice to see some Fall colors around here:)

    2. No, we haven’t had any power outages. I have been at my daughter’s all week so haven’t had any news from home about the fire.

      Glad you are safe!!

      If your ears are ringing tomorrow it’s cause I will wave to you as I pass your street on my way home to see He-Man.😁

  4. I do like that purple storefront. I always like a bit of color. I grew up in North Dakota and attended many Native American Festivals. I have fond memories of them. I would never leave a backpack like that! Too risky! Thanks for linking up!!

  5. I love your collection of photos, many against the grain. I have seen in some cities people will leave their dogs tied up outside a restaurant, why not a backpack. I love especially the store front. Marching the beat of their own drum. And the orange flower, I just love.

    Have a great weekend!!

    1. Thanks so much! A backpack I personally would not, because it’s what if in there – things that are not replacable, or even worse, my art stuff! (I know, that’s not what most people have in their backpack, but I do)

    1. About the colors – am not a hoity toity person, but somehow it goes against -what I have learned in creativity- grain to put five random colors on one wall. Others have it with “words” and never would construct a sentence like the previous one, lol.

  6. Hi Jesh,
    Going against the grain is a new expression to me. Might it mean the same what we Finns expres ‘swim upstream’??
    The lila house with tourquoise door is surely going against the grain :))
