Bees & Flowers - Day 3

And they loved the lavender - I wish I could post how wonderful the lavender smelled.

Bees & Flowers - Day 2

They were buzzing from flower to flower so fast it was tough to get a good picture.

Bees & Flowers - Day 1

I just love bumble bees. They're so benign and... I don't know, kind of funky in their own way.

Tide Flats - Day 3

This is an old ferry from the 30's - called the Kalakala.

Tide Flats - Day 1

These are the gears used in the lift mechanism for the pass-through arm on the now defuct bridge.

Himself - Day 1

The last year or so it's been pretty tough to take a "nice" picture of Himself. So I settle for the funny faces. Which are kind of fun too.

Pictures from my Phone - Day 3

Most of them are of the kids - the landscapes don't work out very well.

Pictures from my Phone - Day 2

These really aren't even very good pictures but I do take alot of photos with my phone if I have nothing else available. (And I think it makes a good theme.) Anyway, here is my wonderful son. I had this as my wallpaper on my phone forever. I took it while we were at a stoplight. I love this picture.

Pictures from my Phone - Day 1

A quiet moment with Thor, in repose. Wonderful old dog that he is.
Sadly he's not as spry as he used to be.

Rose Day 1

The colors in this picture remind me of some wallpaper that we took down when I was in high school. It was in my bedroom, very old from the previous owner. But I was pretty excited about getting to decorate my room my way. It was really nice paper tho.
I took this picture in the evening, and it was pretty low light, but the colors really came through nicely.

Jumping on the Bed - Day 3

You can see they're both getting air in this one. However, avert your eyes from the walls which used to have a nice border on them, but the wallpaper we used didn't like our old fashioned plaster walls, and fell off after about 6 months. Ugh.

Jumping on the Bed - Day 2

They were having so much fun jumping on the bed, it was great.

Jumping on the Bed

I always think of that song "Thats what you get for jumping on the bed"
Actually we keep pretty close eye on them when they're doing this - no bonked noggins etc.

To everyone who reads and has commented so far. I really hope you are enjoying my photos.
I think I'm going to start doing three-day themes, something a little more linear. For a little while anyway.

More Yellow

It seems I like yellow flowers.

Gratuitous Cute Baby Shot

Of course she's sitting in her chair right now breaking my ear drums because we won't let her walk around with an open cup of juice. Ow.

I don't really know how this photo happened to turn out like this. But its kind of interesting. And the reason this is labled as Ocean is because I took it in the cabin while we were staying there over Memorial Day weekend.

What is This Flower?

This flower bloomed in our backyard a couple weeks ago. It was pretty robust in the morning, but by mid-afternoon had drooped considerably. Its quite large, I'd say the purple pointy thing is about (is that the pistil?) about 12 inches long - so you can kind get a perspective of the size. And the color is pretty close too. Any ideas? Post them in the comments.
I hope everyone is enjoying their summer.

California Poppy

This is such a beautiful shade of yellow. I'm glad my camera picked it up so well.

Ocean Crap

Feeling crappy theme.
