Our little Banjo, a wire-haired Jack Russel/ Beagle mix is pretty difficult to get a good shot of. He's in constant motion so I usually just get a blur or worse- a view from behind, lol. Tonight with a little patience and some help from Robbie I finally managed to capture his cute little face.


Not much time today, lots of petsitting this holiday weekend!

The sunlight was so harsh today! I took over 300 pics at playgroup and some came out nice, but some not so nice b/c of the lighting. I caught this pretty while sitting on a log chatting with one of my bestest friends evah. I wish I could have found a way to capture a picture of how grateful I was today to have such a friend, hopefully she knows that I wouldn't have half the sanity or serenity I have in my life without her around.


Framing was nearly impossible at playgroup today. I did get one or two shots that fit more with the WOTW but I didn't like them as much as I liked this one. So I figured I'd go with what I like instead of limiting myself to what I think I 'should' do. ;-)

Framing the moon...

Purrfectly framed

Lotsa frames!

Today I dropped by a small local photography show. I really liked a lot of the shots, but I was surprised to realize that I could have taken some of these shots. I decided that I want to submit a shot next year! I'm technically late posting, but our electricity was out most of the night and then when it came back on I was busy with the boys!

Seriously playful...

The WOTW is framing so when I spotted Jace playing with his action figures I just had to get a shot of his serious concentration, framed by his favorite toys!

Oh, and btw- that orange shirt is his pajama top! You've seen it a few times this week and I didn't want you to think I was cheating and taking all of the shots on the same day- or that he never changes his shirt, lol!

It was HOT in my house today!! I finally let Robbie talk me into turning on the AC but not until it got dark and I knew it wouldn't take as long to cool down the house. In the meantime we were doing everything we could to keep cool- including lots of popsicles. YUM!

P.S. I might have had time to take a more creative shot today if I hadn't been LOST most of the day. ;-)


I broke my block this morning, I'm hoping it's not temporary! Apparently I just have to stay up all night and then go petsitting at 5:30 in the morning! I literally slept from 11pm to 1am and then was up with my teenage boys until they decided to go to bed at 4:30 and I realized it was too late to sleep before heading out. EVERYTHING looked different with different lighting. I noticed how warm the colors were, the dew, the fog, the shadows... I couldn't pick just one shot, so since it's my blog (well, OURS!) and I make the rules, I decided to make up for the past week of not enjoying any of my shots by posting more than 1! It was even hard to pick these three, I had quite a few I loved. Guess I'll just have to become even more of an early bird than I already am!
