Early Riser

I noticed as I was sitting drinking my coke (yes, Coca-Cola, not coffee…) that these darling little birds kept landing on our fence and the morning sunlight was perfect with the trees behind them. By the time I grabbed my camera and headed out, they were gone. I had to be patient and wait for […]

Daily Prompt: Green-eyed Monster

Today’s Daily Prompt:  “Tell us about the last time you were really, truly jealous of someone. Did you act on it? Did it hurt your relationship?  Photographers, show us something GREEN.” Since I’m a photographer and don’t really want to examine all the old feelings and issues that the other topic would bring up right […]

Dragonflies by the pond

Today I captured some images of dragonflies, something I have been trying to do for awhile.  I was pleased with these, considering they’re handheld.  Today was such a beautiful spring day here in North Texas — 73 degrees and sunny.  🙂  Then we went to another local neighborhood pond where I captured the images of […]

A Change in Weather Creates Beauty

This morning was beautiful!  Of course, it was raining and only 40 degrees, after 70 degrees and sunny yesterday, but it was looked great to me with my camera in hand.  I stopped by one of my favorite ponds and found that the water must have been warmer than the air today and there was […]

Easter at Cameron Park Zoo in Waco TX

So this year my mother and I met my brother and his family at Cameron Park Zoo in Waco since it is pretty much halfway between Austin where they live and Dallas where we live.  It was a dark morning drive down from Dallas, with skies that were dark and foreboding the entire drive.  We […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Color

Color — This challenge was answered today when I was capturing images for another challenge (bugs, bees, and creepy crawlies).  When I was processing today’s images, I realized that this little (tiny!) bug stood out with the bright red coloring against the stone it was on.  I really liked the “pop” of color, so this […]

365 Project 2013 — 20130312 Curious Squirrel

I was actually in a local cemetery on the 12th since the topic for my photography club for that week was “Cemetery.”  This little guy was so curious to see what I was up to, that he just stopped and stared at me for a long time.  This is my favorite of the series of […]

365 Project 2013 — 20130226 Swan

I’ve been pretty busy the past few days and have not kept up with my daily photos very well! The 26th of February was a beautiful day here in North Texas (we’ve had some gorgeous Spring days already, although the past few days have been kind of chilly).  This swan and another were swimming in […]
