Look Up//Look Down: 45//46

Oh, my poor neglected blog! I hope to be back in regular circulation in the blogosphere, soon, but in the meantime, here are my two look up//look down pairings from last week and this week. I am very grateful that Helena started this meme, to keep my creative juices flowing!
Week 45: Signs of the Season
Dungeness crab season opened last week off the coast here. I love crab, and I love the way the accumulation of crab pots in the harbor parking lots announce the arrival of the season. It's a very local kickoff to the holiday season, as well, as we usually have crab on Christmas Eve, New Year's Eve and Easter. As for the pairing, I decided to "put a bird on it." Love this funny take on that crafting phenomenon. Looking up at crab pots, looking down at a feather.

Week 46: Running through Fall
We continue to have spectacular sunsets, and Clara and her cross-country team continue to win (and run). They came in second in their league and qualified for the Central Coast Section Championship meet. They came in third there and qualified to run at the California State Meet next weekend! So proud of these tough, tough girls. Looking up at a beautiful fall sunset, looking down into the tent where the girls are preparing for their race. In case you can't read it, Clara's shirt says "Trample the Slow. Hurdle the Dead." Awesome.

Well hey there, Rinda! Glad to see a post pop up in my reader this morning. LOVE your up/down photos. I had no idea there was actually a "crab season" so I learned something today. Doug and I love crab, and now you have me craving it!

Love Clara's shirt! LOL! Awesome is right. :o)

Rinda - I miss you so much! It is just not the same when I don't see your posts up here but I can empathise with the need to change up priorities at certain times in our lives.

Great shots today, I really love the lines in the first shot.
