Girl in the front Yard in the Sun

With a striped shirt. One of the first nice days of this spring. Love the way the sunlight is highlighting her hair.

Toys of my Youth

A funny red dude from who knows where and who knows when. Found in a box of stuff from my childhood. He is very happy.

How about a picture of the happy couple

Technically I need to do some work on this photo, but I love the way they're looking at each other. They're so thrilled to be having a baby...
Go ahead a leave a comment for them if you want, I think they'd like that.

Yesterday's Photo Shoot - Baby Belly

From my a photo shoot at my sister and brother-in-law's house. She's about 38 weeks along, and we had so much fun taking pictures. I shot in all black and white and all natural light.

White Blooms on Front Yard Bush

These are blooms of this bush posted here.

Still have no clue what kind of plant it actually is, but I do like it. And these flowers have the fainest most gentle almost rose-like scent - really wonderful.

Dandelion Fuzz

Irresistable to kids - pick, blow, giggle while the seeds float away... groan as you realize you'll have more dandelions in your yard next week.

April Greeblepix Entry

This is my entry for Awesome Aimee (greeblemonkey) and her monthly greeblepix contest.
I really struggled with an entry this month, for two reasons:

One I'm not that inspired by alot of my photos taken in the last few months. So much so that I went over previously published photos to see if there were any I wanted to share again. But I remembered I had quite a few shots in my camera that had yet to be downloaded - and Viola! This jumped out at me! I played with the color a little bit because it was in shadow, but this really is not an exaggeration of how red this bush is. And I used my new macro which I LOVE.

Second, I have a photo shoot coming up on the 1st and 2nd of May and I need to rent a flash - so I REALLY want to win - LOL!!
Click on the link to see the rest of the amazing entries.

Thank you Aimee - for hosting this photo contest. I so look forward to it every month.

Star Wars Dude

We found this in a box of stuff my parents brought out last spring. I think its probably collectable.

Old Ford Shield

More and more I find myself relying on spell check. Or remembering I before E except after C. I cannot believe my brain is getting this fried.

The Green Green Grass of Hometown.....

Revisting some photos from my January photo walk - playing with colors and cropping. Trying to make so-so photos a little more pleasing to my eye.

Stair Case on the 11th Street Bridge

Trying my hand to play a bit more with my photos to make them look more like I'd like them to look. I turned this to b/w, cropped a bit, added some contrast, and it looks alot better - IMO.

The Need for Speed

She is so funny on her tricycle - she refuses to use the pedals, just tippy-toes along. Quite briskly I might add. Its a little blurry but I like how much movement is shown. I plan to try some more pan shots.

Black & White Mountain - Click on the Photo to make it bigger - it looks SO much better that way

Please do me the favor of clicking on this photo. It looks kind of lost and dumb sitting there all 3" x 4". Or not. Do what you want, you're a grown up, don't let me tell you what to do. Except this once please........ This is Mount Rainier.

Today's Photo of the Day

Holy crap I feel like shit. I've got some sort of stomach bug, up all night heaving, in bed most of the day, trying to be up and participate in the kids weekend for a couple hours. Weak, weary, my lower back is killing me. ugh.

Pink Spring Buds of Unknown Origin

I really played with the cropping on this pic, but never ended up satisfied with it. Hope its to your liking.
