7 days of shooting ~ january 10 – 16

This week’s theme on the flickr group 7 Days of Shooting was “double trouble.” The challenge was to shoot pictures of two of anything, following the daily focus. Macro Sunday / shoot something small Two pieces of DH’s delicious fudge Mono Monday / black and white, sepia, monotone Two glass cats Abstract Tuesday Two small […]

macro monday ~ january 11, 2009

The theme for Macro Monday was “paradox.” That was a hard theme! I found two quotes I like and perused my photos for something to describe them. “I can resist anything except temptation.” Oscar Wilde I took the candy picture last year at Easter time. I love those Snickers Eggs! :-} “Some day you will […]

7 days of shooting ~ january 3-9

The theme this week for the flickr group 7 Days of Shooting was “blue.” The idea is to shoot pictures depicting the theme, with a different emphasis each day. It breaks down as follows… Macro Sunday – shoot something small. Curling ribbon Mono Monday – monochrome (for non-color themes, this could be black and white […]

favorite photos from 2009

January ~ We went to Florida. Wonderful to “get away” for a while. I especially like this picture of DH and DD, walking back from the water. February ~ Valentine tulips. March ~ Spring! April ~ Had to pick two this month. May ~ We had a lot of rain in May. June ~ I […]

macro monday and the theme was…drive me wild

Can’t believe Monday rolled around so quickly this week. Here are the shots I submitted to Macro Mondays for the theme “Drive Me Wild.” WHERE’D YOU PUT MY KEYS??…and yes, I’m shouting… Suburban keys / The sunlight shining through the prisms in the window added some pretty color to the shot. Car trouble / Sometimes […]

I haven’t posted a Macro Monday for a while. This week’s challenge was “drips, drops and splashes.” Here are some shots I took for the theme. I like the way the stream gradually turns into drops. This one has drops in the middle, falling into a frothy splash. My favorite shot is this water crown. […]

bridge therapy

Taking pictures of the bridge helps me not think about crossing the bridge. I guess I was too young when I read a Reader’s Digest article about a bridge falling into a river, taking cars with it…left a negative impression on me that lingers to this day…but this looks like a strong bridge, doesn’t it?? […]

This week’s Macro Mondays theme is “childish.” Here are my submissions. Glitter glue…sticky, messy fun. Love to mom. This (and one for dad) hangs on the fridge. A childish urge…don’t you just want to dip your finger in the sweet frosting goodness of it all? Three posts instead of five to Macro Mondays this week, […]

macro mondays

Here are my submissions to this week’s flickr group Macro Mondays. The theme is “transparency.” The group allows five submissions each Monday. I took this picture while waiting for DD at riding lessons. We have a small box full of old negatives from DH’s family. This one caught my eye. It was probably taken in […]

macro mondays

I participate in a flickr group called Macro Mondays. I haven’t posted many pictures the last month or so, because I’ve been adjusting to a new-to-me camera. My old camera, which finally died, let me get *real* close to a subject. I’ve had to get used to the new one, which DD gave me when […]
