2013 here we come!

Taking inspiration from a friend of mine,  Lynne Medsker  I have created a word cloud using wordle.  And like her, I don’t do resolutions, but I do see these words being prominent in the coming year.

I’m looking forward to spending some more winter time in the warmth of the south.  The first grandchild will present herself around the first of March.  The hubby will retire!!!  There will be preparation on our property as we get it ready for the market to downsize.  And this will be the hubby’s last winter in the cold as we will both be in the south next winter together.

That’s a LOT of life changes in that list.

2013 word cloud

Through it all, the camera will be journaling the process as it always has.  I hope to hear from you along the way in the form of comments.

Until next time…

Sunset photos of South West Florida

Wow, it really has been mid December since I have posted a blog.  What can I say, life has been a priority the past couple of months.

These sunset photos were taken Tuesday February 21st.  My uncle passed away at 9:35 in the morning.  My aunt, her two daughter’s in law, current and ex, and Susan’s husband ventured to the beach to watch the first sunset with uncle Lou on the other side.

This post is in his memory.

He was a welcome beacon in our lives.  We so enjoyed sharing with him and having his smile and laughs with us.

Light spectrum in photograph

I’m working on a project and I needed to get a photo of what is locally known as the twin bridges.  One is a railroad tressel built in 1906 and the other is an iron bridge that spans the creek and is no longer in use.  It was about 10 am and the sun was bright.  I liked this composition so I just went for the shot.  Sun and all.  I knew I had sunspots, but bringing it up on the computer gave me the full spectrum of colors and the point of sunshine.

As a friend of mine says…those are GOD winking moments.

A creative Day with #photography

I have taken the time in the last few days to go back through some photos that I have taken over the course of the past year or so and let my creative juices flow some.

I have a favor to ask of my readers:  If you enjoy my photos, my blog, and  sharing the journey with me, please share these posts on Facebook and re-Tweet them on Twitter.  Press the like button on the blog site as well.  An increased awareness of the photography and ART is one of my goals.

Thanks in advance!  I hope you enjoy the tour….

Nature in early fall

September is here and the signs are upon us that the season is changing.  Much cooler and finally a few showers.  Though it is going to take a lot more rain to get us back to a good sustainability.  We are fortunate that with the tree and shade cover we have had some green.  Where the sun shines it is still crunchy and brown.

Here are some photos I have taken here in the past week or so.

Until next time…..

Finishing up August

I have been a bit busier the past couple of weeks and haven’t taken time to write and journal.  Today as I write, the temperature is 62 degrees.  This past Sunday it was 100.  The rains seem to be going all around us here in the middle of Indiana.  It is so dry that what moisture is in the air just evaporates before it hits the ground.  We did have some misting yesterday and it is cloudy today.  The forcast is for some rain, sure hope it makes it to us.

In my last post “Snake vs. Frog” I didn’t have time for photos.  Here is a couple of the frogs that are our guests in the goldfish pool.  The rest of this post is comprised of a walk with my camera.
