Eros - A Sculpture

This unusual sculpture was outside the Minneapolis Institute of Arts.  I like the gentleman peering inside the hollow head.  The sculpture was entitled "Eros".  I still don't get it.  A partially masked cupid?

Summertime on the Beach

I took these photos one day at the beach at Gooseberry Falls State Park when a gusty wind was kicking up the waves. The little girl playing in the waves seemed like she was posing just for me.

 I submitted this layout to the 7/27 Monday Random Challenge at Scrap Girls Digital Scrapbooking to create a water-inspired layout using curves and circles in the design.  You can see other layouts with this template here: Beautiful Bride and Split Rock Lighthouse.

Wartime Wedding

This was my in-laws’ first wedding photo, taken when Lou and Stella eloped in 1945. As a Marine, Lou had been in many battles in the Pacific and then was sent back to the states. They wanted to get married before he was deployed to the war zone again, but fortunately for them, the war ended before he left for the Pacific. Later that year they had a church ceremony.
