Scavenger Hunt Sunday: Back in Boston

This is a flight of stairs up to an apartment building around the corner from my place. I love the soft flowers surrounding the urban concerete.

Totally took this and went, oh macro! I love lavender and there is a bunch of it in the flower bed at the end of my street. It's just so pretty and aromatic!

Clouds? What clouds? The weather this week has just been perfect, so perfect that there hasn't been any clouds in the sky! One day I looked up at the skylight while I was on the elliptical and saw this gorgeous, cloudless, sky and smiled!

I took a shortcut down an access way a few days ago, that I never go down. These awesome mosaics were all over the walls. So happy I took that shortcut!

I love this quote and it just makes me smile. So I decided to attempt a selfie to go along with it! I went out into my apt's little yard, turned on the self timer and had some fun! Coincidentally, I was a bit dirty after lying in the grass taking the pics...

I agree, it's fun to find shots that show the contrast of textures, like the flowers and concrete. Great photos!!

Your "smile" self makes ME smile! So joyful :). I am very uncomfortable about doing a selfie, but you have given me inspiration :)

Oh, I LOVE that quote. I love your selfie that went with the quote. Perfect.

Those mosaics are so pretty. How you came about them kind of reminds me of Frost's "The Road Less Traveled." =)

I smiled at the clouds photo and caption :) Your flowers are beautiful and make me want to reach out and touch them! And I love the smile photo, such a great smile :)

I love the mosaics! I wish we had those around here. You should be happy that you've had no clouds. Our power was knocked out for about 33 hours. Not fun!

Great job this week!

Great selfie and quote! Love the abstract murals, and the cloudless sky, although those cracks in the glass would scare the heck out of me!

Lovely how many treasures you found downtown.

Hey Tamar-Love that smile of yours and the quote is wonderful. I think those mosaics are a great find, and the lavender is such a pretty shot. I was in Boston yesterday and thought of you.
