This is Part Three of my series on the Essex Studios Art Walk held in Cincinnati, Ohio this past weekend. If you missed Part One and Two…go here. I wandered through a large warehouse for a couple of hours taking photos and talking with artists.

This is the young lady that is one of the members of my Meetup group and the artist that we were showing support for by attending the Art Walk.

What does a blogger/photographer do on a rainy day when her husband is using her car because his has a problem….take photos at home! I was going for an abstract theme in some of these…so I changed colors, etc. The first is of the full moon this morning…
Being thankful has been on my mind lately…mainly because Thanksgiving is coming up soon. Having traveled to a few undeveloped countries, I realize there are many basic creature comforts that we take for granted in America.

These are a few things I give thanks for:
Love for and from family & friends
My five senses…the ability to walk…and no major health issues

And they say when you’re over 50 and female…you’re technically challenged…I don’t think so!
The videos aren’t perfect, but I’m learning! Here’s one of them…
