Default Martha's First 52

Week 1 (Jan 1-7, 2015)

I have waffled about the decision to do this for some time. I wanted to start at the beginning of a new year if I did begin one. This evening, realizing the 1st week of the new year would end at midnight and I was almost out of time, I finally decided to take the plunge. Without any worthy subject at hand, I thought I would start with a selfie of sorts. Was blind as a bat without my glasses so had to let the camera do the focusing work. After a number of tries, this was the best it managed to do.

There seems to be a problem with your link. I am not seeing any photo(s).

Week 2 (January 8-14, 2015)

Was a cold, wet, and dreary week, ending with Otis, my dog, having surgery for removal of a tumor on his back. I am now anxiously waiting to find out if it was benign or cancerous.

Kept hoping for a sunny day, but that was not to be. Finally, at the end of the week I had to give up waiting and I went out looking for something to photo.

Started by checking out a favorite place, a CSX Railroad trestle bridge that spans the Coosa River in Gadsden, Alabama.

This troll under the trestle scared me away.

So I went into town to see what I could find there.

A nice set Martha. Love the look & texture of that old trestle wood.
Sorry to hear about Otis' medical issues. Hope he gets better soon.
