Hidden treasure

Hello everyone.  I've been a bit absent lately.  Not sure why. Just because, I guess.  Here, but not here.  Anyway, I've missed you and I want to show you a discovery from my last train trip which took me through Grand Junction, Colorado.  There is a beautiful old station there that has been partially renovated, but the work seems to have stopped...this is a view of it from the upper level of the train:

Walk around back and look through a grimy old window...(this is a reflection of me doing that):

See the little arch above the camera? That is this:
You can't see this from the outside, for some reason.  It's one of the windows in the top photo.  If only someone would buy this building and finish restoring it.  Another nice thing about Grand Junction is there is a little store there that sells interesting items.  They used to have produce, but that stopped.  One of my wishes is that Amtrak let local craft people and farmers sell good things at the stations.

Here is a backyard visitor!

and Voila!... something I've been working on...the bluebird of happiness taking a night flight...
There is an opportunity to sell things coming up, so I've been making a little collection, to see what will happen.

That's all for now!


  1. Your trick photography...amazing!
    Handsome chieftan riding his pony.
    Wonderful photo of the tiny humming bird. We have a visitor here at the moment watching the humming birds at our feeder. He says he's never seen on before/1
    Lovely, lovely blue bird of happiness!

  2. Hi Penny! Thanks! What a treat for your see a hummingbird for the first time. One of the huge blessings of getting older for me is slowing down and having time to see and watch all the miracles that are close by.

  3. Sometimes we need to be a little quieter... Your blue bird is wonderful!

  4. Thank you, Deb...yes, quietness is definitely a safe haven lately...
