More photo from my trip..

I want to start off by saying
Happy Mothers Day to all you moms out there.
I am out in Arizona today having Lunch with both
my mom and mother-inlaw.  We are so lucky they only live
 a couple of hours away.



Well as most of you know we spent last weekend in
San Francisco.  So I thought I would see how many of
my photos from my trip would fit the prompts for this week
Scavenger Hunt Sunday.

And I was able to find a photo for every prompt.. YEA!

So here are just a few more photo from San Francisco.



SIDEWALK

Here we are on Market street..  Right in front of the mall.
The sidewalk on this particular morning was crazy busy.




INSPIRING

On our last day we spent the morning at Golden Gate Park.
It was so peaceful and relaxing out there.
I know if we lived in SF I would spend most of my time here.





TIME

Here is another shot from up top coit tower.
The building with the clock on it is Ferry Building.
Another cool place to hang out and have a bite to eat.



CLOSE UP

I caught this little guy buzzing around some Lavender.
I didn't have my macro lens with me.  So this is the best close
up I got on our trip.




WITH MIRROR

This photo really didn't turn out how I wanted..
But I was on top of one of the High rise building and
The building across from us was all mirrors.
I was hopping I could get a shot of my reflection in the mirror.
No such luck..  Just the buildings reflection.

To see all the other who played along in the Scavenger Hunt Sunday
You can hop over HERE.



It took me awhile but  finally caught a photo of this guy
just hanging out.. Man you should see him when he opens
his wings it is the most pretty color of blue you have ever seen
on a butterfly!




Well that's all I have for now.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
I hope you are enjoying what ever it is you are
doing this weekend..

Hugs, Linda

I like the last one.

Those "eyes" of the butterfly look beautiful, and 3-D.

Becca said...

Oo! All awesome shots this week Linda! Your SF shots are all great and reflect your nice visit there.
Your butterfly shot is awesome...I might have to try and sketch that one...so pretty!
Have a nice Mother's Day!

Susan said...

My fave is that sidewalk shot. The mirror is very cool as well-even if you're not in it. Great patience to get that butterfly.

Amazing photography! I LOVE the photo of Golden Gate Park the most. Certainly inspiring. That Ferry Building reminds me of Fishermans' Wharf Bubba Gump buttered shrimps. YUM :)).

Carol Blackburn said...

Happy Mother's Day, Linda.....love the butterfly photo. He resembles my "Owl Butterfly" photo but a bit different. That eye marking is amazing, isn't it!

Catherine said...

Fab photos....

Davi said...

A mazing pics~ No fav cuz they are all so so wonderful!! And wow that butterfly is really pretty. Glad you are getting in some family time today. Its pretty toasty so stay cool ;)

S. Etole said...

So many beautiful views. Mother's Day blessings to you.

Gayle Price said...

Wow !! Linda all your photos are so amazing...I spent ages going back and looking at each one again and again. That last one of the butterfly is just incredible, the colourings and patterns and the detail, he looks like he has been designed by Missoni ! I also love the one of the 'reflective' building, love the shapes and patterns, but it does make me feel a little sort of 'giddy' when I look at it. San Francisco looks beautiful, a lot greener than I imagined, it sounds like you had a lovely day; it's always special spending time with the people you love but don't get to see every day. xx

Christine E-E said...

SF is fun... lots of stuff to take pics of. I love the pic from Coit Tower. Appears you had nice, clear weather with a tad of sun!?? that's unusual at this time of the year. Golden Gate Park is gorgeous. there's so much to see & do there. enjoy your day with the mothers.

Happy Mother's Day Linda! Another wonderful post filled with lovely photos! I am in awe of the butterfly! He looks like an owl butterfly I saw in St. Martin at a butterfly farm. Just incredible! Thanks for sharing!

Tracy said...

Good grief! That butterfly picture belongs on a wall! AMAZING!! Are you sure you didn't catch yourself in the mirrors? That kind of looks like a person in the middle of the second row of windows from the top. These are just fantastic. Thanks for sharing SF with those of us who've never been. :-) Happy Mother's Day!

Terry said...

Happy Mother's Day to you! Love those pictures, but that butterfly was incredible! Wish I could have seen that shade of blue! It is really great that you are only a couple of hours away from the Moms! Hugs!
