Hmm. What to search for for this prompt. I suppose I’ll go to Flickr Commons and search “girl posed.”

I did and here’s a few photos I found.

A Happy Bull

For the letter H, this week Cee challenges photographers to post photos on their blogs that depict that which is happy. Here’s my interpretation.

Sepia Saturday

Sepia Saturday Header

This week’s Sepia Saturday inspires bloggers to search through archives and find photos on travel, overcrowding, blankets or I’d say carriages. Though kids are back at school, September’s a good month for traveling. My aunt and uncle are soon off to Russia and other friends are off to Wyoming. I’ll leave for China on Thursday so travel came to mind.

How romantic the life of circus performers on the road must have been back then.

Above is a ferry, so the journey’s not long. It carries dock workers.

The last photo was taken at a train station, I’m not sure where, but somewhere in the US.

Mr. Peabody & Sherman

Mr. Peabody (r) and Sherman

Mr. Peabody (r) and Sherman (l)

When I was growing up I loved watching Mr. Peabody & Sherman’s cartoons as they traveled to various historical events. Now all the kids who have no idea who this famed pair is can see Mr. Peabody, the genius dog, and his boy Sherman right wrongs throughout time and space. The film, which I saw on a plane, captures the heart and soul of the original. Bravo!

The film moves quickly and is witty enough for adults and offers history with a spoonful of sugar for the young. I’m telling everyone I see that they should check this out whether they have kids or not. It’s just a fun film.
