Beach Elf (or Leprechaun?)

I just have to publish a photo in Kammie’s Oddball challenge this week, as I’d forgotten about this photo I took a few days ago.  Little did I know I would capture one of the little people as he took his morning rest on this picnic table down the beach from my house. So here you have it.  Proof! Is it an elf or a leprechaun? The town 15 kilometers away was settled by Irish mercenaries after the Mexican War of Independence and is called San Patricio Melaque (St. Patrick is its patron saint) so I vote for Leprechaun.

Nancy in Swing Time (Kammie’s Fun Foto Challenge, Jan 17, 2019)

Nancy is the four-year-old daughter of Ellie, who cleans the house I rent in Jan and Feb once a week.  She’s gone from shy to playful and teasing. She didn’t know I was watching for most of this little sequence.  I was in the hammock on the other side of the porch:

Ferrous Treasures: Odd Ball Challenge, Oct 27, 2018


Not much to do in a very small Missouri town other than to walk around looking for photos. This is part of this morning’s yield.

We’d seen this old Cupid walking down the street the day before. Then he showed up at the local Wednesday street market. Luckily, he carried the arrow in his hand and never loaded the bow. I think the idea was that he was angling for tips.  Yes, I gave him one.
