Remembrance

Night ride home, but these cyclists paused to view the lights and reflections on a glassy Lake Union. Today is a day we all can pause and reflect on the sacrifice of lives since "the Great War" which ended in an armistice at the eleventh hour on 11-11. My mom was a Navy veteran during a later war. I'm missing her a lot and reflecting this Remembrance Day / Veterans Day about her years of service in the WAVES and the five other young women who became her life-long dear friends after meeting in training and serving together. Here is a salute to Stinky, Irene, Mary, Brownie, Sexy, and Inez. I'm thinkinboutcha all as I look out on the water.

Beautiful photo for a sweet tribute to your mom and her friends.

It's always good to remember and thank the soldiers who have fought for our countries. And I am hoping for the day when we don't have to add to their roster anymore.

You have been doing a lot of very nice night work lately. There's a lot more reason to be out in the street in the evening in SEA than STL. These pictures hit exposure, composition and color really well.

Bibi, MB, and Babooshka, Thanks very much!

Hilda, I am SO with you on this!

Bob, (hey, new avitar and you are no longer "Strangetastes"!) Very nice of you to take the time to check out the night shots in detail. Your kind comments are much appreciated. I wish I could do as well as you in consistency of image quality and in wonderful writing. Your blog is very special.
-Kim
