An artist using technology to create a Selfie. She had her camera set up so we could take a photo of her taking a photo of herself. It was so ingenious.

On a recent outing with my hubby, we came across a Street Art Festival in Sarasota, Florida. The weather was incredibly beautiful. The skies a quiet blue with puffy white clouds and a soothing breeze to keep everyone comfortable as they meandered among the artwork being created by artists from all over the United States. There was a high school and grammar school area for those promising new artists; plus a children area where they got to make their own creations.

Glenn Miller was a great band leader who volunteered for service in 1942, leading the army Air Force Band. While en route to France to perform for the troops, his plane went down over the English Channel. Glenn Miller is still listed MIA but his music live on. Can you name a song?

Although, this post is late for CCBH challenge hosted by Marianne at
http://eastofmalaga.net/ I’d like to add it since it fits her challenge so well.
Marianna has a CCBH challenge each month. You have lots of time to post – well – except me. Lol
Hope on over and see what’s next –

Cheri Lucas Rowlands has challenged us to snap a selfie with your camera phone or camera. In the shot above, Feel free to get creative and clever, and if you don’t want to share a photo of yourself, think of a way to approach this challenge in a different way. (Hint: silhouettes and shadows are your friends.) A selfie doesn’t have to be all about you; it can reveal much more, given the elements you choose to include. To join in –

    • The work it took to create them was huge. They were very generous to donate their time.
      Youth – when my knees would have been able to be tortured for hours on concrete.
      It’s lovely to see the new generation with their passion for ART.
