Morning Exploration

Spent a good part of the morning in my favorite area. This time, I found my way on the other side of the Rainbow Bridge.

Pippin and his Shadow

Took this today during my walk with the dogs. I've been waiting to take a picture of the odgs and their shadows. I wish I had caught one with his cute ears bopping up and down, but I am happy with this one....

The Pony Ride

We had a family outing today at a local Pumpkin Patch. I had scored some tickets for a really good price, and they included 2 free pony rides - one for my daughter, and the other for my son. We waited in line for close to an hour. When we got to the front of the line, my daughter happily got onto her horse. My son? He hid behind me and said, "I don't want to go..." Okay, don't get me wrong. I don't normally force my kids to have fun (ha!) but at that moment, all I saw was all the waiting we did and how his sister was enjoying herself and that she would tell her friends about the fun pony ride she had and my son, overhearing her, complaining how he didn't get the chance to ride a pony and how IMPOSSIBLE it would be to win that argument.

I helped my son onto his pony and I told him that I would walk alongside him and Oh, what FUN it will be!

He wasn't happy about it...which is why I am posting a photo of his Pony Ride from the rear. I like the shadows too... =)

My evening with my girl

I went to my favorite photo spot today with my little girl this evening.

October 19, 2011

I'm falling behind, I know! I started a step-up group in Flickr, called **Love It!** and it is taking a lot of my time. I'm still taking pictures, but some days like yesterday, I have to be happy with a perfunctory one::
I guess you can call this my SOOC shot (Straight out of the Camera).

You don't always get what you want...

Every time I drive my daughter to school, I see this view, just before I make the turn down the street where her school is located. It's GORGEOUS! I've hesitated to stop by the side of the busy road to take a picture, but this morning, I thought to myself, "What the heck" (no worries, there is a slight least I think that is what it was...) I have my Iphone.

[SIGH] Note to self, if you want a landscape picture with a nice sky, don't depend on your camera phone. Boo for me.

The Hidden Bridge, Found

Found a way to the bridge that had eluded me. I feel like superwoman.

My California

Took this Hip shot during my walk with the dogs today. A rather isolated tree, me thinks... funny that some people associate palm trees with sunny California when they are not even native to the state...

Spinning Man

Another creation by my children and me, this time of my son rediscovering a Children's Meal toy. It's the simplest thing - I'm Lovin' It!

Just Another Sunset

Took the family to my favorite area to shoot tonight. My goodness, the view was stunning, as I thought it would be. The clouds were building all day...
