Ruby Tuesday

So this is not so much my creative eye, as much as it is my daughters.
This was her first attempt at decorating cookies. And for a 2 year old (at the time) i think she did fabulous!

However, I can't show you the finished product without showing you how they got that way...just for fun!

Monochromatic Monday

This was the tree I climbed as a child that aged in our backyard. The very old garage with it's shabby shingles was the neighbor's. The somber color color fit my mood as my parents moved out of the only childhood home I knew, just last year.

Watery Wednesday

Unfortunately, I don't have anything this beautiful in my yard just yet this year. This shot was from last year of our pond...errrrr...puddle in the back yard. Can't wait for the rest of the ice to melt in it this year! lol.

Ruby Tuesday

This guy starts singing at 6:05 EVERY morning for the last 3 weeks. Who needs the alarm clock? He then starts singing around 5ish again in the evening. Ok, so maybe its not the same bird. But they are definitely persistent, so I decided to be as well, looking for him daily. I found him this weekend!

Monochrome Maniac & Macro Monday

Ok, this is my first time for Macro Monday, but decided to combine it with my Monochrome as well. I'll also provide the color, to show the difference. I can't decide which I like better.

Skywatch Friday

Its that time already. This was a last minute shot on the way in the house after work today. Its my magnolia tree, getting ready to bloom. In the next couple of weeks, the little pussywillow-like buds will open up to a beautiful pink flower. I will post those again once that happens.

Watery Wednesday

I've had plenty of opportunities to catch some "watery" shots this last week. However, the planning and getting ready for my 3 year old's Birthday party took up that time. However, I noticed this very transparent (from all the rain this week) leaf stuck in the winter spout. Nothing extraordinary for sure, but its my world!

Watery Wednesday #1

My first Watery Wednesday post, taken of a loon on Lake Alexander, Minnesota. The loon's call is such a lonely, eerie call anyway, and I think this shot captures that as well thruough the rolling fog on the water that morning.

Getting around to it.

Wow. I soo didn't get into this as quick as I thought I would. Or for that matter, keep busy doing the things that once preoccupied my mind.
However, just as my meanderings go, I have once again found something that I want to try. I have stumbled across several photo blogs, in my search for inspiration. I love photography. Love landscapes, texture, nature, contrasts and capturing a moment in a life that will be gone in a split second, if I don't get in on my camera.

So I've been challenged. Challenged to capture those things that I love. Every day, something different. It may be a different object, idea, portrayal, or word.
