ALL THINGS CONSIDERED

 

 

 

Old town Folsum, part of the gold rush era.
A lot going on here. There are three doors, but two
are half hidden by the white pillars.
Personally I love the decorative painting
in between the upstairs windows.

For all of your families when your graduating one
won’t go through the line this yearย  – so sorry.

 

 

 

 

A blast from the past, for Steve’s meme. Very coincidental,
our son ended up living, where Hubs and I both went to college,
and got married: in the Hague. As students, we biked whenever
we had time to go to the store in The Passage, built in 1925.
It’s like an indoor mall, and still considered a classic in the Hague
(one of the 3 most prominent cities in the Netherlands

Makro-Tex:Beautiful Spring, Wordless Wednesday

 

About my title “All Things Considered”
for the coming weeks my posts will be somewhat
different. More philosophical, a part
I do not often show, but it’s a large part of
who I am, and why I got my doctorate,
my concern about people’s traumas and bad situations.

The colors were actually much more saturated,
but did not want to make it look like HDR.

  1. Like the first building decor with the arches. The Spring blossoms are a pretty hue of pinks. Great tribute to the graduates. So many schools are really trying to be creative and inventive with their graduations. The one at the raceway sounds pretty great. Like the sun reflection in the mirror. They’re pretty much all great to see on my gloomy, day here…the rain has made a lot of flooding in the areas and my yard. ๐Ÿ™‚ But, warmer dry is coming.

  2. A lovely blog post – I love the achitecture, those paintings between the windows are gorgeous. I also love the pink dogwood, I’ve only ever seen ones with cream coloured flowers – this pink one is spectacular.
    Gorgeous shot in the car mirror too, I like that idea!

  3. Beautiful post, I love the colors. I to sometimes want more color but HDR is like too much too harsh.

  5. Your Wordless Wed photo is especially pretty. The clarity of the color and the shape of the petals are perfect. Sometimes it all comes together.

    1. Thank you Ally!
      The color though I owe to photoshop, because the contrast was too strong for the pale pin:) A long way of saying, with photshop it all comes nicely together:)

  6. That’s a beautiful dogwood tree, and I love the reflected sunset. I feel badly for the class of 2020. Doesn’t quite seem fair.

    1. Since my kids and now grandkids all graduated here, I know what a big deal it is for most families! In Europe, there is only the party afterward. No gowns, going through the line.

  7. We had a lovely dogwood tree outside our house in Ohio. Those buildings in Folsom are lovely and that shot in the mirror shows beautiful light. We like Noodles and Company, although they got rid of our favorite dish, Whole Grain Tuscan Linguine. I noticed that in Arizona they look like the one you show here but the ones in Illinois weren’t called World Cafe. Now I’m hungry for noodles. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Have actually never eaten at the Noodles and Company – just showed this because the theme for One Word Sunday was “company.” I love the Italian noodles. The Asian not so much, maybe because it’s often with a soy sauce, which I am not fond of (too common – don’t know if I ever told you, both of my parents were half Indonesian, half Dutch, and when Islam came to that county we moved to the Netherlands, but my parents then in their forties were thoroughly Asian, so in my childhood I ate a lot of Asian food).
      Are you getting used to living in Arizona? Is life/people/customs very different from Illinois?

    2. I like Italian noodles/pasta, too. In the mid-seventies when I went to Europe for almost a year, one of the tasty things I ate in Amsterdam was bami goreng. I tend to like pasta of most sorts, even though the trend these days is anti-carbs.

      We’re doing quite well in Arizona, not even bothered by the heat so far. The biggest difference is the landscape, of course. Other than that, I haven’t noticed many differences yet, but since we’ve mostly been at home since we moved, perhaps some new ones will emerge once we get out more.

    3. So, then you know Indonesian food:) My mother was an excellent cook, so I never bothered:)
      I never pay attention to the latest food trends:) Also, I was only on one diet my whole life (Suzanne Summers) where the protein (meat) is separated from the vegetables. Tasty dishes, but a lot of work when also cooking food for the rest of the family. Gained a few pounds the last 20 years, but as long as I don’t go toe x-large, I eat what I want.

  10. Oh I so love that beautiful sky reflection on your side mirror Jesh! The pillars and the french/western style arches look very dramatic and aesthetic at the same time! Hope you had an amazing days past.

    About your question on my blog, I also had that problem on some blogs especially when I visit wordpress blogs and it doesn’t allow me to comment because the one showing is an account which I don’t have or something ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Maybe you can send me an email screenshot of what it looks on your side and maybe we can search for a fix to it ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Life is good on this side. All the memes/challenges I participate in, determine how my post looks like.Thank you Steve!
      Your comment is coming through though, here at wordpress. In the edit mode there are at least 6 pages with many choices, where to click on to change in “appearance.”
      It may be easier if you get an wordpress url (there are plenty of “free” themes for blogs – there are two types: wordpress.com and worpress.org, and they are different. I have the .com), so you can see it in the edit mode. Thank you for your willingness to help, but if you can’t discover it, don’t feel like you failed. For me it’s the intent that is important:) Have a fun seek!

    2. Jesh what a beautiful Mall!!! It reminded me of this path inside in Amsterdam Centraal. I was looking for a pay restroom but I can;t get through the security gates because I don;t have a train ticket so I was pacing around a lot of times until I found this path at the middle that does not require a train ticket which is actually like an indoor mall that gets you to the back of the station where the escalators are towards the bus stops at the second floor. That Mall/alley indoor smells like super super fragrant and I remember a very interesting shop that sells a lot of figurines and china ware all painted in Delft blue. Of course it was just for my eyes to see because they are very expensive ๐Ÿ™‚

      Thank you so much dear Jesh for joining weekly on Timeless Thursdays! I really appreciate it so much ๐Ÿ™‚ Happy Weekend!

    1. You traveled quite a bit! Since the “He” of you is so tall, it reminded me on something that happened to us in Asia. Because my Hubby is tall too, we came at an indoor vegetable market, and I noticed some of the women were afraid of him, so I took him by the hand, and I ordered him to smile, so that’s how we walked through the market, lol!
