Voodoo Lily

From our yard.
Hard to get a good shot of them, they're quite large. My sister identified this for me last time it bloomed in 2008.
Here is an arsty fartsy shot.

Picking Peas at AJ's House

They got to pick strawberries, and peas. Surprisingly they both loved shelling and eating the peas. Guess I'll have to plant some next year. Yum.

You Capture - Get Down Low

This weeks You Capture challenge was to Get Down Low, so I lay on the floor for these first two, this is Hubby playing Guitar, and Betty laying on the floor listening.
These are Herself's sparkly shoes. She was very proud of her shoes that day and showed them to everyone.
Go HERE to enjoy the rest of You Capture at I Should Be Folding Laundry.

You Capture - Water

I had planned to do one more photo shoot for this weeks theme but ran out of time. Hope you enjoy these.
And here you have them - water in the form of drops first:
Raindrops on Grass-4

Raindrops on Grass-3

The grapes in sparkling water were inspired by two other wonderful photog friends of mine, Aimee at Greeblemonkey and Meghann at Midget Invasion so a quick shout out to two awesome friends - hey girls!
Water in a glass with grapes.

Grapes in Sparkling Water-2

I was taking the grapes photos in the bright sunlight and was playing with stopping down and up the exposures, so they're kind of different colors. I'm not very good at photo editing yet, but I will be someday.

Hope you enjoyed my water photos. Go to I Should Be Folding Laundry-Beth's You Capture page and check out the rest of the photos!

You Capture - Fun

I'm going to do this post old school style with regular size photos.
This weeks challenge was Fun. I had a lot of fun taking pictures, and what else does fun mean except shoving a camera in my kids faces. Fun for Mama anyway.

So we went to the playground a couple times and I brought my camera. Himself loves the monkey bars. And Herself loves to walk along the top of the wall, this time she was pretending to be a lion.


Go HERE and check out the rest of the photographers at Beth's site.
Thanks for playing along!

At least you can't see the ketchup all over her face.
Ooops, you can.

You Capture - Best Shot

Ok so its been really rainy, little to no sun, and I've been super sick for the first time in ages so haven't really been out. At all.
Now, excuses aside, I did manage to get out and snap a few shots of my rhody out front, and think this one turned out OK. Hope you enjoy it too.

Now, go to Beth's site and check out all the other great You Capture photos!

Thanks for playing along.

I played with the color a bit with this one, made it kind of antiqued, faded even.
