This is a building in Temecula that created quite a stir when it was first built. NO one liked it. Supposedly it is a replica of a famous French building, but even that didn't help people embrace it. Now, after years of seeing it, It some how has come to appeal to me as it may well have with many others here in town. Not so bad after all!
Who is the pig, the landloard or the tenants? Is this a slum lord in action? How does he keep getting the worst of the worst? Definitely in the catagory of the UGLY!
My brother-in-law protesting my snapping photos over and over with my point and shoot as our lunch is arriving. Great burgers and beer at Slater's 50/50 in Anaheim Hills, CA. 50/50 stands for a burger that is 50% Beef and 50% ground Bacon - HEAVENLY!!!!
Oh my, am I ridiculous??? This guy was in my woodpile out side my bedroom door making a nest. When I went to get some wood for the fire he jumped out. The dogs tried to eat him but I got them in the house to save him, only to have to trap him later when he is running around my food pantry. He is soooo cute though!
I felt so bad, I have been trying to get this guy out with a catch and release trap for a couple of months now and so when I went into the pantry and finally found this guy in the trap I was a little freaked out and bummed. I couldn't bring myself to deal with it tonight so I took it out side and set it down on the ground. After a short time, I realized I was missing a photo op and so I went back out and just took a few snap shots. The next morning not only was the mouse gone but the trap as well. I guess I must have provided some lucky fellow with a nice gourmet meal! Yay me!!
Lovely woman who has done a tremendous job with her salon business. No question on why she is so successful. She genuinely cares for everyone she meets and treats them with kindness and dignity. I have never heard an unkind word come from her mouth and her salon is a reflection of her. Lovely, Gracious, Warm, Elegant and Welcoming all wrapped up together. You shouldn't miss out on Salon 29.
My adorable little hairdresser is all grown up and sophisticated. She organized a fantastic party to celebrate the salons anniversary and did a great job. Everything was elegant and lovely just as she is. I was fortunate enough to be invited to photograph the event. Hope to work with them on many more projects.
Here we go again. A new dog seems to just have appeared in my life. It seems as if people are having a hard time feeding themselves and their kids and feeding a dog doesn't seem to be in the picture these days. No one seems to want to claim him. Too bad, he is very sweet, loving and of course loyal. He is a dog isn't he. Their lose, my gain. Plenty of love here to go around. Welcome Big Guy!
This lovely young woman is a student in my photography class. She is one of the few that don't seem to mind being on that end of the camera. Could be because she is so young and beautiful!
I love this sight when I look out my kitchen window in the morning. Just enough fog and haze to make an interesting photo. Not so much that you can't see anything. Nice misty, cool morning.
I thought I would see what I could do with HDR and a moving target. With a little work iI think it came out okay.
Today I saw a car on fire with the police and fire departments all around. This is my first attempt at trying to be a news reporter. As you can well see, I stink at it! So much for that career choice.
