avila beach

Since I had nothing else to do today, I decided to cruise on over to Avila Beach and take some pictures. I wasn’t quite sure what I was going to take pictures of, but figured I would figure out something. Once I got there, I quickly figured it out. Since my Honduras trip a year ago, I haven’t really carried my camera around in a town.

I just now realized that I haven’t posted pictures from my excursion in Copan Ruins, so I can’t refer back to then without explaining. I was bored and didn’t know where anyone was, so I went out with my camera to see what I could find. I quickly became fascinated with the signs on the various shops. Most were handmade and quite unique. It was night-time and I didn’t have a tripod, so I had to get creative with bracing my camera. I was using the corners of buildings, telephone poles, steps on the sidewalk and even at times lying in the street using the curb. I did manage to get some decent shots that I will have to post soon.

Today was not quite as crazy, thankfully. It was mid-afternoon, so plenty of light was available. For some reason, I love the variety found in small shop signs. Many are quite creative. Without any more yammering from me, just click the photo below to visit the gallery.

    Great pictures! That place has really developed since I last saw it. We need to check it out as there are some neat shops and eating places.

    I entered the dessert contest Saturday night that the Pathfinders were having for a fund raiser along with a meal,drawings, etc. I was shocked out of my chair when they called me for first place and the $250 prize! Will tell more about it in my letter but you are getting a heads up! Love, Grandma T
