My little niece cheering for others after she gets her two awards at school. I am so proud of her. she is a wonderful loving and giving child. Congrats sweet Lizzy.
I was delighted to see these items from the past, still up on the grocery shelves. Recently I went to the Antique Tractor and Steam Engine Festival in Vista, California. There was a whole collection of old wringer washers there. Brought back such memories. My Grandma used her old wringer for many years after everyone else had switched over to a modern day design.
It is really time to jump into red and green and get rid of the fall scarecrows, but one last breakfast with the little guys. I am having my oatmeal with tropical dried fruit salad
pecans and eggnog. It is sooooo delicious that way. Dessert!!
The nerve of this guy! He is in my spot. The little stinker.
As I drove in the other night I thought this is a nice scary photo. Just happened to have my camera and tripod with me. I am taking teacher Keith Hanz's advice about a good photographer wears his camera like a piece of clothing. You aren't dressed without it!
Thanks Duo for the ideas. I played with this and have about 6 different layers with different effects and textures. What a great idea for a not so great photo. It really improved it in my eyes. Thanks again. First time I have really played much with textures.
Just one of my crazy ideas. What kind of crazy person puts shoe on a clothesline and in teacups??? The crazy, weird woman in "Weird California". Boy do I love that book.
Fun shoot with some fun people. Mooshie seems to bring out the nuttiness in all of us. Tooooo much Fun!
Here I am sure flare from the porch light must have caused this aberration but it was such a nice surprise when I found it. Messing around with the exposures got me this great green other-worldly color. Fun!!!
Another class project, a self portrait that symbolizes me. My Auntie just brought me this book and it is pretty great. It kept me occupied for hours the next day. Then I got this idea for this photo. I am a native Californian and I have always known that If not down right weird, I am at the very least eccentric. When ever my kids refer to someone else as weird I remind them I am sure there are many people who think we are weird. I am not sure they believe me though. Oh well.
This is probably one of my favorite parts of a wedding. It is so often a very touching time to see the father of the bride dance with his little girl. This is a very special father daughter couple we have know since this bride was born and they are very dear to our hearts. Beautiful wedding, beautiful bride, beautiful friends...
Little Madi gets to study Viola this year at school. She is so excited and practices everyday. She was quite happy to pose for grandma out in the orange grove. She told me this is the official pose they must do while waiting for their turn to play. I am very proud of her progress and dedication. Kisses sweetie.
