This little guy hung out in the dog house under the blankets and then would sunbath later in the day. We would go and take to it and pet it's little head and it never tried to get away. Today art put down his hand and he just crawled on. Nice surprises every day.
No birdie baths this morning. We have a frozen solid fountain which is soooooo unusual in sunny California.
This is a great group of photographers and this was taken at one of our regular trips to the San Diego (formerly Quail) Botanical Gardens. It is always a nice outing. Always some different angle to shoot.
Still playing with Photomatix. Fun HDR software. Lovely new addition to Old Town Temecula, nice job city politicians!
Wanted to get the ghosting of my cat roaming the hallway in the middle of the night but as everyone knows who is owned by a cat, there is no directing when it comes to cats. One shot was all I got. She didn't care what I had or what I said. This is it!
One of the little details at the new Temecula Civic Center. What is it about rust that is so charming. It seems as if photographers just can't resist it. At least I can't. Is it the beautiful rich earthy burnt color, or just the idea that it has been around a long time?
I know it can be somewhat artificially created, but I still love it.
Today the mystery of the pepper shaker with the too small holes has been solved. It has been pondered by many and different solutions suggested. As I am finally ready to take out my little dremmel tool and solve the problem once and for all. Suddenly, Art takes a closer look and what??? I just need to switch the salt and pepper lids???? Amazing. What a genius.
The dogs seem to love when we get down on their level and rub our heads on them. It just makes their day as if we really do speak dog. We refuse to go too far and do the whole sniffing thing though. We don't understand Dogs that well!
How far can an 10 ounce cup of coffee be displaced is dropped for a table 24 inches high. Wellllllll, The area visible in the photo and there was not a place that was not hit including the top of the chair and the whole area of the ceiling. Carpet, chair, picture mat, (Behind glass!!!), wall, ceiling, books, other furniture, lamp and shade, Even madonna and child, all got splattered with coffee with creamer. Amazing. This is one experiment I don't want to repeat.
This delightful building is so captivating at night. It was the vision of a delightful man and his wife who are really true artists. So many creative details that are unusual and very charming. I have heard from very reliable sources that the food is phenomenal. Service slow but food is definitely worth the wait.
My Grandma always had a few of these plants potted and she gave one to me. All those memories from childhood have such a impact and so many are the smallest things, like giving a little girl her own small potted plant to care for. Thank you Grandma for the gift of a love for plants.
This little guy was just staring right in, waiting for me to bring out the breakfast at the Birdie Cafe. It is still dark outside!
