243. Up My Alley

'Up My Alley'

This is not technically 'my' alley, it's not even my neighborhood. 
What it is, though, is power poles and power lines and dumpsters all lined up and basking on a sunshiny fall day. That, my friends, is a whole bunch of stuff that's 'right up my alley'. ;)

Fyi, the neighborhood is in Longview, WA, looking south from Lake Sacajawea. The tree-covered ridge in the distance is Oregon; what we locals refer to as 'the Rainier hill'.

242. Moo Baby

'Moo Baby'

I've attempted this little cutie a couple of times before and failed miserably. 
I get stubborn about things like that, so this week I gave her another shot.
Much better this time around. She makes me smile. :)
