Random Picture Monday

To me, this picture just screams of Summer. The bright lighting, the busy bee, the bull thistle in bloom. It’s one of my favorites. And… wait for it…. bull thistles are WEEDS!

Random Picture Monday

As some of you may know, one of my hobbies is photography so I figured instead of utter silence as I’m writing away and running around like a madwoman (who forgets to come up with blog posts), you might enjoy a random picture a week or so.

This was a daisy standing all by itself at a friend’s house. Sort of appropriate now that it’s starting to feel a lot more like Fall now.

A Visit to Portland (Pictures)

I was down in Portland over the weekend, for a quick visit with my mother. While I was there, we took our cameras and went to a small park near her house that is part flying disc golf and part woods walking trail. I love to take pictures of flowers and insects but this trip definitely taught me that I need to learn more about manual camera operation so I can better adjust the white balance and I need to buy a true macro lens for the flowers and bugs.

But here are a few fun photos:

Yet More Snow – Photo

It’s snowing again today and I wandered around with my camera for a bit. I really liked this picture of the duck pond down the road from me. You can click on the picture to see a larger version.

One of my First Photos

These are some trees in my back “yard” – it was fairly early but I liked the way they sat against the blue sky.

I’m having fun – though 2 pictures out of maybe 30 were keepers.
