Sip and Savor

What a great day! We had fun at the wine/beer tasting...well, I think they had fun, I don't remember. Just kidding! I had a hard time trying to get shots and tasting wine at the same time. It's hard to take good photos with a wine glass in your hand, but Hope seemed to have no trouble with it!

Purple marks the spot...

Karen, our friend Summer and I went to a local wine festival this afternoon. I'm always grateful to find these little things that remind me I can find fun and culture wherever I am if I'm willing to look for it. These purple and white banners where placed around the downtown area to let us know which business where sponsoring wineries so we could go in for a tasting. There was also live music in various places and it was just a generally fun and relaxing atmosphere. All in all a good afternoon with good friends.

Woot! It's back in my loving care...

I got my camera back today!!! I was so happy and relieved to have it- I'd starting having dreams that I got it back but it still didn't work. :-O

Unfortunately it didn't stop raining long enough for me to get out and really look for some great shots. I ended up on my front porch because I so desperately wanted some well metered outdoor shots. I have a wind chime and a wind spinner out there that I enjoy a lot and I didn't want to choose so today you get two. Heck if it's sunny tomorrow you may get twelve!!


Hope, you know I'm waiting for your picture! POST ALREADY, I'm going insane!!!!!!! LOL

dark friday

ramble mode...

Friday's have become a day I dread. Payday...or lack thereof. There's hope on the horizon, Rey has a new job and things are better, but I was thrown into that same friday desperation when I looked to see if he got one last check and it was yet another letdown. So, I pulled up my big girl pants, like I've learned to do recently, and decided to enjoy the day. The day was broody, clouds and storms looming, and I wanted to capture that feeling, but the rain never came (until NOW) and the clouds weren't dark enough. So what did I do? I took pictures of flowers. LOL. Flowers in my yard, flowers at clients houses. When I went to look at my shots, I found this one, that I think looks just how I felt today. Darkness, but so much hope and light. :o)

Tasty texture...

Meh, I couldn't really capture the detail of the texture in the mushroom cap that I was going for. However it's too late and I'm too tired to try for another shot tonight. This shot is going into my mental file of things to retry when I get my camera back.

We had a fun day, it was the last day of co-op and we all headed to the mini-golf/go-cart place for an end of the year party. I had fun shooting for a bit and then rode myself. I think some of my shots were overexposed, I need to work on that. Higher aperture for sure. We had a great day! This evening we headed to Hope's house for "book club" and we did actually talk about books for a little bit! It was a really nice day.

Welcoming texture...

A new word of the week always helps me find new shots. I don't think I would have noticed this shot if I hadn't been specifically looking for texture.


this is the best you'll get from me today, I snapped it sitting in the car while Dallas was in his guitar lesson. Going out to the lesson, petsitting, and the store today was all I did and it really wore me down. Darn this cold! I'm ready for it to be over. Hopefully tomorrow?!?!?!!!

All that glitters...

It's getting more difficult for me to stay motivated with my point and shoot. A new word of the week would help because I always seem to do better with some direction. We didn't get to talk about it today but I'm sure we'll come up with something.

still sick

snapped this when I went to petsit this morning again and then just laid around. Made me think of the churches I was in search of shooting this past week when the word was architecture...what IS our word this week Hope? Sick? LOL

Star light...


I'm not feeling well, it started last night with a stuffy head and I've just been laying around all day watching Buffy on Netflix. LOL. I would have taken a picture of that (I may still tomorrow if I'm not feeling better!) but luckily I thought ahead this morning when I was out petsitting and snapped a few shots. Literally, I only shot 13 pictures, that's a record low for me, so that will tell you how well I felt! Anyway, I'm lucky my clients have a lovely house and this table caught my eye in the morning light...
