This is the last photo I took of my precious dog Simba. At 6:30 P.M. he was hit by a car on the street in front of the house. He was a stray that I took in a few years ago and he was never one to be contained. He could always find a way out. He was an extremely lovable and gentle soul. He will be sorely missed.
On our zoo trip these were so beautiful and it was so striking in the otherwise spring-like surroundings. Things all around are blooming and yet here were these fall colored leaves.
Conner examines the route to determine just when that trolley might get here. We rode it into Old Town, then walked to Starbuck's for a snack and coffee. The Dark Cherry Mocha is to die for. Yum Yum. I'm not sure you can even call this coffee!!!
There is a little more discussion about whos post this is. They seem to all want on the same post even though there are many others with the exact same seeds. I do't know why this one seems so popular.
One guy ducks as the other comes charging in for food.
Simba is such a little piggy. He just loves the mud and water. It is raining again and when I went out to feed them, here he comes with his big muddy feet. He is such a sweet guy, very gentle and lovable.
The rain has stopped for a while and the bees are out in full force. It is very hard to get nice photos of bees when you have three dingy dog trying to snap them up in mid air. I am probably lucky I didn't get stung.
The dogs and I took a romp through the apple orchard today. I just couldn't resist a photo of the old truck tire that my son used to ride his bike over and jump it as he got to the top. I never saw this but his sisters would tattle on him. He was smart enough not to let mom see. Those were the days. They grow up soooooo fast.
On the way to photo class, I just had to stop and take a photo of these wonderful stormy looking clouds. They didn't produce anything but were wonderful to look at. Clouds are exciting when you live in "Sunny California".
Ok this is where I live. As I was going down the hill I saw this beautiful view and got this crazy idea to take a picture as if I was a tripod. Welllllllll... As close as I thought I was keeping everything level, I wasn't. I had never tried stitching photos together before so for my first time i'm ok with the results. More careful planning is always a good idea, but one that I am not known for.
Ok, technically this was taken yesterday, but I didn't finish editing until 3am so I say it counts. I met the Pacific Photography Society for a photo shoot, when we started to walk and shoot I almost immediately got behind. Eventually when I decided I needed to find my way back to my car, I cut through this hotel and found my way back out to the street with the help of some friendly hotel employees.
Look at those sad faces. You can even see the whining. They just spent the whole night in because it was cold and wet, I let them out to go potty and to eat their breakfast, and they're back with these pathetic looks on their faces. I let them back in for a few minutes but the look on the cat's face was evil. Those "disgusting dogs!" was easy reading in her eyes.
