Catch Up - Oct 4



Evelyn: This storm was quickly blowing in. Although not the best image... I happened to be traveling with my boss, and figured I couldn't just demand he pull over for photography. This guy was riding right into it...

Catch up - Sept 29


Evelyn: After a series of meltdowns, I spent a Friday night encircled with support and laughter, tucked in a warm bed, and awakened by the smell of coffee.

Catchup - Series in Sept.


Evelyn: A series of days. I have felt frustrated by my lack of motivation and the challenge to finish out the year. I decided to make a small stand - via photography. October is a wash... as I finally gave up. I am hoping November will look better.

Filler Up


Evelyn: This is what I do at least 2 times a week, consuming miles like a starving Harley, watching the road grow shorter and time disappear because it is so familiar...

Spectators


Evelyn: When we first moved in, I hung up the whiteboard, which quickly became the collector of things too fun to keep in albums or boxes... so instead it keeps an eye on me in the kitchen when I cook.

Crystal Beach


Evelyn: a favorite. I've gained a few pounds from the frequent visits lately... But there is something sweet about this spot, the experience of tasting, contemplating, laughing and choosing, then finally filling a cone with my usual flavor favorites.

Piaggio Poetry


Evelyn:

I hit the road
Clinging
Late night Starbucks
Neighborhood trip
A classic
Fumes
Hair blown
Arms tightly wound
Following Piaggio

Sunset to Taco Bus


Eveln: Andre's last night, and we desperately need to get him to the Taco Bus. The sun sets behind us as our tummies gurgle in anticipation.

Birthday Zombie


Evelyn: [Vinna & Randy] I invite friends to meet at the Palm Pavilion on Clearwater Beach for my birthday, my 3rd annual celebration of my 40th - Shocker? Or the subtle hint that the Zombie Apocalypse is looming...

Chessy Scramble


Evelyn:  Justin & Andre play a late night game of chess... Justin solving between strategic moves and painstaking considerations.

First Day


Evelyn: This is Justin's first day of his senior year. We have been taking these photos since he started school... and I realize that this is the last set. This is his last year. The last time I have him to myself and can insist he turn around for the camera amidst annoyed groans. Off to school my little ninja.

Snuggle Bunny


 Evelyn: I have had Gizmo for the week. He chills with Andre, Justin and me. I forget how snuggly he is.

Colorful Adventure


Evelyn: I went on an Ikea adventure... finding myself in the tumultuous movement of color on a busy floor

Got My Back?


Evelyn: [Monica's picture] All I can gather is that they are headed back to Wilbur...

It's A Colorful Life


Evelyn: I am headed to Gulfport with Andre... a storm is on its way and the sky is spectacular.

Waiting


Evelyn: We eat out a lot. Pito comes out to visit and we hit the Ozona Pig for a delightful dish. We wait, entertaining each other with banter and stories and rubiks cubes.

Sense of Community


Evelyn: I pick up Andre, his first time back in FL since he stayed as a teenager. We jump into laughter and food and a sense of family right away.

[Monica (by Evelyn) The land is burning near Wilbur. The residents have been evacuated as teams of State and Community firefighters work to save the property and residents livelihood. I can only imagine the sense of cohesion and community as they all move through their experience together, balancing life with some time fear and concern. This is how family is built.]

50 Years


Evelyn: Just past midnight, we are cleaning up, and I have the opportunity to get these two together. I feel warm, blessed, to have them in my life, and their stories that remind me there is work in relationships, and joy, and bumps and rides, and the regard they hold for each other seems timeless. I am encouraged.

Looking Towards

 

Evelyn: The evening with Bud & Betty - celebrating 50 years of marriage, family of every kind embracing them with dance, and play, and words.

Balloon-istache


Evelyn: Once again, at Lenny's in Clearwater. Mark is entertaining us with a mermaid bra for his balloon creation ... and we laugh.

As We Set


Evelyn: Self Portrait ... moving quickly towards my 43rd... I mean 34th.

A Bit of Luxury


Evelyn: I was invited to a Brazilian restaurant by a close friend of mine... the food in layers, meat beyond meat sliced for you as requested, and a buffet surrounded by flowers, of veggies and cheeses. It was delightful, both in dining and conversation.

Midnight Arrivals


Evelyn: We got in late, and Gizmo climbed in bed with me... just a little cuddle time before I wake early to drive to work from Apopka to Clearwater the next day.

Palm Springs


Evelyn: Making it home again, we flew from Palm Springs - and found ourselves staring at mountains... a sight I miss here in FL.
