Thematic Photograph #1


I hope I'm not too late to join in here. I just found Carmi's Thematic Photo blog, Written Inc. His theme for the week (beginning last Wed.) was winter. I have more winter pictures than I would like to admit this year but will share one more and then that's it! I promise.

SkyWatch Friday #6



We had just received about an inch of wet snow. It was still cloudy but some blue was trying to peek through. Go check out other skies here.

Sepia Scenes Wednesday #2



This is another favorite older picture of my daughter in a pile of leaves. It looks great in color but wanted to try it in Sepia. See other Sepia Scenes Here.

Watery Wednesday #7



Took a walk on the Centennial Trail along the Spokane River last Saturday. There was still some snow on the ground and the river seemed up a bit. But I just had to find my way down a muddy hill to take some pictures. Check out more Watery Wonders here.

Macro Monday #1



My first Macro entry! I'm almost embarrassed to say that I didn't even know my camera had a macro setting until recently. And so now I've been busy trying to macro everything I see ;-) We had just received about an inch of new snow and these are long grasses that we grow in our backyard. I liked how the one leaf was bent due to the weight of the snow. To see more Macros, visit Lisa.

SOOC Sunday #2



Just got back from a refreshing walk along the river. This is the last picture I took as we were heading back to the car. Go check out more SOOC shots here.

Camera Critters #1



Camera Critters


My first Camera Critters entry. Really, the only critter I take pictures of is our dog Nellie. She's a Border Collie mix and is about 8 1/2 yrs old. We got her from the Humane Society 8 years ago. I wanted a lap dog but there wasn't much to pick from. She was very sick when someone brought her in off the streets; worms, double ear infection and doggy lice. They were going to put her down but one of the workers begged to give her a chance. She had only been there a week when my daughter stuck her hand in the cage and Nellie licked her. There was no turning back, she was ours then. And when I sit on the couch, her head fits in my lap so I guess that counts ;-) You can see more critters of different types by clicking on the picture above.

SkyWatch Friday #5



I had missed the opportunity to take a picture of a beautiful sunrise that morning but went out for a walk an hour later and still found the sky worthy to take a picture of. To see more worthy skies, go here.

Thursday Challenge:Clothes #2



My daughter would be mortified if she knew I was using a picture of her closet for today's challenge! This is pretty much how it looks all the time, so bulging that the doors won't even close. Clothes are 'hung' by tossing them on the rod. I'm sure that my room was immaculate when I was 13 ;-)

Go here to see more Thursday Challenges.

Watery Wednesday #6



Hi all! I haven't been feeling well, so not 'memeing' as much as I would like. I'm also running low on my favs so maybe I need to go on vacation to take more pics ;-)

Anyway, this was taken at Arcadia Beach, just a few miles South of Cannon Beach in Oregon. It's a smaller, less traveled beach and a great way to spend a day with a picnic basket. There are small tide pools and when the tide is low you can go around a big rock on the right to get to the other side. Just make sure you're back before the tide comes in!

Go see some more Watery Wetness here.

SkyWatch Friday #4




Finally, a shot from my own front yard; with minimal power poles and lines. I wish I had a clear view in my backyard for Sunrises. Check out more lovely Skywatches Here.

Monochrome Monday #3



This is a Monastery in my neighborhood and I thought it would look great in B&W. The building and grounds take up an entire block and I'd love to sneak over the fence to see what's in the garden. I read that a few years ago they had several statues stolen which is quite sad. Think of the beautiful photos that are just waiting to happen back there. I love the detail of the crosses in the window. They even have their own blog! If you want to see some more fascinating mono's, go here.
