Dante’s Comedy on Mobile Art

“One hundred artists from all over the world reinterpret the Hell, Purgatory and Paradise today.” —YouTube Here are some outstanding examples of what people are doing with the cameras in their smartphones.

The Fabulous Mizz N has always enjoyed expressing herself through art projects. Here are some photos that I took at the Discovery Museum in Sausalito one hot Summer’s day.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Big

The subject of this week’s challenge is Big, and this whale skeleton certainly fits the bill. Washed ashore in 1988, this 72 foot-long Blue Whale weighed in at 80 tons and it is on display near the Marine Mammal Center in the Marin Headlands.

The Fabulous Mizz N provides a sense of scale for us.

Story Challenge: Letter “O”

This week’s challenge is the letter “o” as in, “OH MY GOD”. This weekend the US Navy Blue Angels ruled the skies over San Francisco as a part of the 2012 Fleet Week. Here is an order of International Orange with a side of OMG.

Travel theme: Animals

In honor of World Animal Day on October 4th, Ailsa’s Travel Theme this week is Animals. The critters featured below, and their cousins, have been frequent visitors to our “Backyard Salad Bar” for years. Last year we finally put up a fence around the backyard and now we have vegetables and flowers and no deer (Oh, dear!).
