Travel Theme – Eyes

It’s been a while since I participated in Ailsa’s Travel Theme photo challenge but this week’s subject really caught my eye.  For more on Ailsa’s Travel Theme at Where’s My Backpack go to https://wheresmybackpack.com/2017/02/12/travel-theme-eyes/


I’ve got my eye on you; a frog sunning himself on a rock at the Dubuque Arboretum and Botanical Gardens in Iowa.


Soft kitty; our daughter’s cat Sugar with her odd-colored eyes is enjoying her new surroundings in Utah. She was always used to apartment living in Chicago and has now become accustomed to the joys of roaming about in the garden.


A bald eagle giving us the eye at Brookfield Zoo.


Just for fun; a dinosaur skeleton at the Natural History Museum in Salt Lake City, Utah.  I gave him the eye!

Travel Theme: One Color

Ailsa’s Travel Theme challenge this week is ‘One Color’ so once again I’ve dipped into the photo files to see if I could find something that would be appropriate.

Travel Theme: Autumn

TTC autumn 1

One of my favorite places to visit in the autumn is the Morton Arboretum in Lisle, Illinois, so for Ailsa’s Travel Theme challenge, which this week is Autumn, I thought I’d post a few images that I’ve taken there over the years.  For more on Ailsa’s weekly challenge go to http://wheresmybackpack.com/2014/10/31/travel-theme-autumn/
