Over the Civic Center

Filed under: Aerial Views, Guest Photographers — lessie @ 9:48 pm

Many thanks, Barron Cooley, for this cool bird’s-eye shot! The white building to the bottom left is the Anderson Civic Center. Barron comments that he likes the clouds — and I do too. Nice framing.

Where in the World…?

Filed under: Homes — lessie @ 2:31 am

Where could this lovely one be located? La Antigua, Guatemala? Menton, France? Or maybe Buenos Aires, Argentina? Ha! No. It is a statue artfully placed in a local Andersonian’s back yard. Cool, huh?

Saturday Errand

At the Pet Depot on Saturday, this gorgeous chi-shund brought her owners for a visit. They were really sweet to the crazy lady taking pictures.

Gazing Ball

Filed under: Homes — lessie @ 2:16 am

This is one of those shots I really really want to reshoot. I wanted to capture the eye leading up the path, through the pergola, to the gazing ball…and I know it can be done better. But for now, here it is: a welcoming yard in Old North Anderson. I drive by and want to follow the path… 🙂

Home Light

Jackson Square, a neighborhood in Old North Anderson, is known for interesting mid-century or so houses. I love this one’s round window — and the color the neighbors painted it, of course.

Pet Depo’s Sadie

Meet Sadie. She has the softest, most silky head I’ve ever patted. I had no idea goldens are so loving, gentle, and beautiful! Her mom owns and runs Pet Depo on Hwy 81/Greenville Street. It’s a fun store to walk around in — and they are willing to special order hard-to-find dog food and treats. (Fun fact: Did you know most grocery store brands are full of corn — which dogs don’t digest?)

Jennifer’s Son

I HATE that summer is spinning to a close. *sigh* People are yard saling like crazy before the early nights and chilly weather hits. I feel so lucky to have caught this shot of Jennifer’s little boy — I met her on Saturday over rumpled clothes and 25-cent items. Nice gal.

Where in the World Is David?

Filed under: Churches, Schools, & Nonprofits — lessie @ 1:42 pm

I’ve always loved photographing feet. Sometimes it turns out well, sometimes not so good. Can you guess where this pic was taken? I’ve posted a pic of that putt-ready green carpet before. 🙂 Sunday was the first church service for Capstone Community Church in their new-to-them facility on West Whitner. (Formerly Central Baptist Church) A lot of remodeling was done to bring the building up to code — and to make it suit the needs of the new congregation. You can see the two-tone greens where the members removed part of the wooden altar to make a larger podium. In the above photo, David, the pastor, is sharing the message. (He has cool shoes, huh?)

Friendly Neighbor Dogs

Filed under: Animals, Guest Photographers — lessie @ 10:09 pm

Driving down East Fredricks Street, we noticed these beautiful animals playing in the front yard. Their owners were kind enough to let April snap some pics. (Thanks, April!) I love how she captured the motion: all those ears and fur flying.

Is this turning into an Anderson dog blog? Maybe. 🙂 For a real dog blog on the REAL Riviera, check out Jilly’s Riviera Dogs. I love all the French doggie names. 🙂

Irish Wolfhound?

Filed under: Animals — lessie @ 8:42 pm

One of my distant neighbors — quite a winded walk away, but still doable (though I don’t walk it much!) — sports this adorable mailbox. However, in delightability, this letter container runs a distant second to the beautiful, immense dogs running within the neighbors’ wrought iron fence. Beautiful creatures. Because of the fence, I haven’t gotten a good photo YET.
