No I didn't Forget About You

I'm just trying to decide if I should switch platforms for my blog or not. Blogger is not so photo friendly, at least not to my way of thinking.
Anyway, I took these out playing with the dog (her name is Betty) on Tuesday.
He sure does love that dog.

Whoa... my head...

Museum of Glass

Just kidding. Playing around with my camera while out on a photo walk today. In the rain of course. Figured the black and white would suit better.

A Day Off With My Husband

First stop was for coffee.

Latte

I know this guy! (I love this guy)
Husband at Satellite

Then we stopped and bought apples.
Thriftway Produce

And saw some birds on the telephone wire.

It was nice to spend the day with him, just the two of us.

Fall Color by Hipstamitc

I'm sure this has been talking about somewhere, but the irony of using the very latest in technology to try to make it look so very low-tech is quite hilarious to me. I'm just sayin'....

Happy Halloween

We had a Halloween party on Saturday night. Hubby was the Demon, formerly know as Prince... of darkness. This is on his way into the shower.

When the party's over....

Another from the new toy

One of my favorite kinds of candy, but I rarely see it outside of Halloween, so I'm hoarding it all for myself.

Fave Candy

New Toy

And I love the new apps that go with it. I know lots of people really like the Hipstamtic, I do too, but I kind of like Shake-It better. Here is one of my fave shots so far.

Sunflower - SOOC

SOOC is an acronym for Straight Out Of Camera. No editing at all. I usually feel pretty good when I can take a great photo that looks just right, SOOC. Hope you like it too. (are you tired of sunflowers yet?)

The Easel

Perfect for those long rainy days of winter.

The Easel

It was a Christmas present a couple of years ago, rarely used, but suddenly its the best thing ever. YAY.

Rock and Roll Boy

Sometimes its all about the silly. And I have a boy who complies.
Note the heavy-metal hand gestures, very important.

Orange Sunflower

There is just something about sunflowers that I really love, maybe because they're so huge, and colorful. Je ne sais quois.

Afternoon

Took a group of neighborhood kids to the closest playground, and of course they left a pile of scooters and helmets to play on the big toys.

Today's Sunflowers

Found these on school grounds. Took several in black and white - not on purpose, then decided I liked them too.

Tomato Harvest

Grew tomatoes for the first time this year, it was pretty fun. And tasty. Can't wait to do it again next year. And yes, they are as small as they look but so flavorful. "Matts Wild Cherry" is the variety.

Best Breakfast Smoothie Recipe Ever

One old banana
1 C. blueberries (frozen OK)
1/2 C. vanilla yogurt
2 T protein powder
3/4 C. Soy Milk

Blend until smooth. So good. So good for you.
JUST HAD TO SHARE. Now, I must go drink my breakfast.

As you were.

This morning on my front porch

I've been working on capturing the eyes of the people I photograph. Paying extra close attention to the lighting and focus.
This is one I took this morning, and I'm pretty happy with it. I also took pictures of my tomatoes, and a willing Orb Weaver. But I'm only sharing this one of my girl.

A Morning of Mist and Spiders

And this is what you get.

Foggy Spider Web

So funny, how scared I am of spiders. Yet I love to photograph them. Maybe someday it'll help me overcome my fear.

Ketchup & Marshmallows

Why do I like pictures of my kids with messy faces so much? This one is all about camping, and having ketchup and marshmallows all over her face.

August Camping

Our (probably) last camping trip of the year.
Great weather, good site, lots of fun. Except for the stupid blow-up mattress that Hubby and I slept on which DEFLATED and SUCKED.
Typical face of my son.
Himself, faces.

You Capture - Summer



Summer means road trips and camping. Since we didn't camp this past week, but did road-trip, here are some pics from visiting Grandma's house, and a couple from the drive home. Those triple trailers in Oregon really freak me out.

Thanks for visiting! Go to You Capture to check out the rest of this weeks Summer photos!
