Weekly Photo Challenge: Refraction

This is a photo I posted back in 2012 for my 365 Challenge.  I think it works for the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge for October 17th.

Waiting

Last Saturday I had the honor being the official photographer for the 4th Annual Ride for RAVE.  Northern Nevada RAVE Family Foundation exists to “provide respite for families with special needs children while training high school volunteers to work with these very special children.” (link)

It was a beautiful autumn day and, of course, I took a LOT of photographs and am up to my eyebrows getting them processed and uploaded to the gallery. Here is just one. More to come.

Riders waiting for the 50-mile  ride to start.

An Autumn Walkabout

Some photos from a short walk I took the other day. I often go to this place and seem to find something interesting each time I do.

A wonderful day in Nevada

Yesterday afternoon, the news came in that the 9th circuit had struck down Nevada’s constitutional amendment that banned same sex couples from marrying.  It was already on its way out the door. Many of the same voters who had once supported it and pushed it into law, have changed their minds and come over to the side of love with the rest of us. But repealing the amendment was going to take a few more years.  The 9th Circuit Court took care of that for us yesterday.

And so, an impromptu rally was hurriedly put together. We met at Reno City Center at 7:00 pm. We cheered, laughed, smiled, hugged, listened to lots of wonderful people, and marched to the Reno Arch and back again.   A happy day indeed!
