What She found in the camera

my neighbors house, my photo

When I downloaded my photos into the computer I found these things I snapped and forgot about. 
These houses are in my neighborhood, and are the new colors here in FL. lime and lemon, I have seen a dozen all over town  with these 2 colors. Years ago Florida was known for pastels, so now we will be 
known for Neon..... 

this photo is a few houses down from me, but I grabbed the photo off google earth.



SweetBay has these adorable 1/4 sized baskets. I just love them. I stood and snapped this photo and did not realize there was a man in the car behind me staring at me like he thought I was crazy. He had NO IDEA he was watching MadSnapper in Snapping Mode because she could.


I was sitting watching Good Morning America/blogging, when both dogs raised their ears and listened, I jumped up to look out and they were stripping the blacktop off our street and spraying it into the dump trucks.

 30 minutes of fun watching and since I was in my night gown, I snapped through the window glass because If went out you would all be watching ME on YouTube as the crazy lady snapper in he gown.

Looks like you are going to get the smell of fresh asphalt soon. It looks like they were pretty efficient with getting the old stuff off.

I like the first yellow house but the lime green color not so much.

I had to search for your post. I knew it should be up but when I found it in my reader it said it was posted 11 hours ago. Oh well, I found it!

What's your secret for getting photos off of Google Earth? It used to be I could email them to myself and then they changed to make it better and now it's a fight.

I wouldn't mine the lemon color but the lime -- not much.

You wouldn't lose those houses in the dark would you?! Deccy x

I like yellow, but not that particular shade of yellow...the green is okay.

Loved your post today, Sandra. I often get strange looks while I am snapping photos for the blog! Have a good Saturday.

Mad Snapper is dedicated to bring the brightest and best pictures to us...and we thank her...
OMCs I think our neighbors across the street must be FL natives...their house is that shade of green and they have purple door. You should see it when the sun is out.
MOL
Hugs Madi and Mom

Like others have said, you'll never get lost with those bright homes around you.
I think all of us that blog get strange looks for the things we photograph.
I love following you in your crazy daily life.
Thanks for Stacy's link. It did work for me and I'm glad we are back in business again.

Usually around water you see homes painted in bright colors.
It would be funny if you were outside in your gown and and you realize those guys working were snapping pics of you...LOL You would end up being a Youtube star!
Happy Saturday Sandra!

I like the yellow house - yours is white - right? And I have one of those baskets from my mom. I watch GMA too - I worry about Robin.

That yellow house is very pretty. The green one is okay but I think the yellow is a prettier color. Us ladies who love snapping just have to get it done anyway we can.I have even gone out in my gown before but it was night time. The street lights were lighting me up but not too much. lol Hope they are going to resurface your street after ripping off the asphalt Hugs
