Summer Fun/Sleepy

Summer Fun 194/365 I've been anxious about this summer... My first summer without kids in the home... No family vacation planned... Would there be any {summer fun}? But I have found a few things that have made it bearable.... Like ice cream... Visits to see my youngest at the beach.... 4th of July weekend was lots of fun when Ty was able to come home and spend the entire weekend with us! A trip to see my other son - who had unexpected time off so we actually got to spend time with him (short but I will take it!) [...]


Any Favorite Snack/Loyal/Yikes

Any Favorite Snack 191/365 I am seasonal with my snacking... Sometimes something salty is my {favorite snack}... Most times something sweet is my {favorite snack}... But in the summer time I love to snack on whatever fruit or veggie is in season...

Blurry/Stripes/My View Today

Blurry As a photographer the one thing I absolutely never want to see is any of my pictures to turn out {blurry} - {blurry} is a bad word to me... But it does happen and I'm usually crushed when it does...Blur happens when the shutter speed is too slow to capture the movement of the subject...But I have to remind myself that a {blurry} picture can actually be used to enhance the feeling of motion which when done right can be a cool effect...So it was an interesting experience to be intentional about trying to capture a {blurry} photograph... I [...]


Sprinkle/In My Cup/Today

Sprinkle 170/365 {Sprinkle} of freckles... {Sprinkle) of sugar... {Sprinkle) of rain... {Sprinkle} of chocolate shavings on my cupcake... In My Cup 171/365 I have to admit that while I did shoot with my big girl camera each day this weekend all of my "official" pictures I posted for my 365 Project were taken with my iphone... Sometimes I just didn't have my camera with me when I had the opportunity to shoot whatever the prompt was for that day... On Sabbath I had the opportunity to shoot a lovely evening wedding... But prior to that we had a last minute [...]


Explore/What Represents Me

Explore 168/365 - Mitchell Point, Columbia River Gorge Oh how I love to {explore}... It is absolutely my favorite thing to do! {Explore}ing to me could mean turning down a street in my own neighborhood that I have never been on... Or taking off passport in hand... Somewhere on Mt. Hood, Oregon For me, there is nothing better than wandering, {explore}ing something, somewhere new... Wildlife Reservation - Ridgefield, Washington Of course my favorite way to {explore} is to travel somewhere new and then just wander... I love turning down streets, wandering through buildings, with no agenda other than to see [...]

Abstract 149/365 So it's time to play catch-up on my blog! These last few days have been a blast! I am so thankful I had the opportunity to go along with my sons senior trip to Lake Shasta.  The above picture is labeled {abstract} After driving all night long, arriving at the lake at 7am and then being out on the lake by 10am my brain could not process anything...I simply took a picture of the seniors on their "party boat" with the beautiful {abstract} designs in the water. Lunch 150/365 {Lunch} time on the party barge.  This was one [...]
