Here in North Carolina we were just north of the Total Solar Eclipse path. We had 95% coverage of the sun by the moon. We also had 80% coverage of the sky by clouds because of a popup thunderstorm that appeared one hour prior to the our closest point to totality.
It is a rainy Monday Morning in North Carolina. There is still beauty outside. Raindrops can be mundane, or they can be captivating.
Now let’s try this in black and white.

Here is a quote from Wikipedia on the casualties of battle:
“During the battle, the Confederates suffered a total of nearly 2,600 casualties: 239 killed, 1,694 wounded and 673 missing. About half of the casualties were lost in the Army of Tennessee. The Union army lost 194 killed, 1,112 wounded, and 221 missing, for a total of 1,527 casualties. The wounded were treated at the house of John Harper, with 360 unknown confederates buried in a mass grave next to the Harper family cemetery.”

Summer in Summerfied, North Carolina.
The neighborhood cat decided to rest in the shade of one of our trees, waiting for the start of our first annual 4th of July parade.
The picture is has a plethora of different, intermixed textures.
Thanks to Narami at the blog De Monte Y Mar for sponsoring this weekly challenge.
We have put up some decorations in the front of our home in preparation for a neighborhood parade tomorrow, celebrating the 4th of July.
With just a little breeze, the red, white, and blue pinwheels spin like crazy.
We went out with friends to the Elks Club on Saturday night for a Shrimp Fest dinner. We had a wonderful dinner at a poolside table. Just off of the pool deck was this raised platform with a picnic table in the middle. The railing around the table was a very thick rope that looked like a huge boa constrictor snake. I love the texture differences between the wood, the rope, the plants, the brick and the old rusted chain.
