As I miss the days of the Weekly Winners once hosted by Lotus, I wanted to start showing pictures again. Mostly because in the past few years as I became more involved in writing, my camera became a bit neglected. In hopes of reinvigorating my photography life again, as I’ve always loved taking pictures, and miss it. I started by giving myself themes to follow, but have since decided to just go into it with my whole heart and show the best of the weeks shots and some of what happened in the week I’m showing. Week – 6/21/15-6/28/15 A tiny inchworm we discovered outside. Tiny tiny tiny. The Husband Denver’s friend & mentor (& our neighbor), Marc, giving a touching speech at Denver’s Eagle Ceremony. The Kennedy My most interesting event this week – meeting the fascinating Mr Chen Guan Ming, the man riding a rickshaw around the world. I did a full on photo shoot with my daughters’ and my Monster High Dolls. I LOVE these things, I admit it. My husband thinks it’s weird as hell that I love them like I do. I think they’re beautiful. These are just a few of my favorite pictures from the session. Sweet Screams Ghoulia Yelps Avea Trotter Gloom and Bloom Catrine de Mew Scaremester Clawdeen Wolf And that’s it for this week!  More to come next week…considering I get my camera back out 😀 Read more »

Family Time {Scavenger Hunt Sunday}

Family time is always good on the weekend.  Games, movies, pumpkins, reading time – it’s all fun and games. All taken w/ Canon Rebel XS. 1. Orange or Pink We fancy men are individuals; so are pumpkins, but every pumpkin in the field goes through every point of pumpkin history. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson [flickr id=”8107335809″ thumbnail=”medium” overlay=”true” size=”medium” group=”” align=”center”] In wilderness I sense the miracle of life, and behind it our scientific accomplishments fade to trivia. ~Charles Lindbergh [flickr id=”8107336548″ thumbnail=”medium” overlay=”true” size=”medium” group=”” align=”center”] 2. Faceless Portrait Easy reading is damn hard writing. ~Nathaniel Hawthorne [flickr id=”8107338937″ thumbnail=”medium” overlay=”true” size=”medium” group=”” align=”center”] Do whatever you do intensely. ~Robert Henri [flickr id=”8107330379″ thumbnail=”medium” overlay=”true” size=”medium” group=”” align=”center”] 3. View From the Top When words are scarce they are seldom spent in vain. ~William Shakespeare  [flickr id=”8107346282″ thumbnail=”medium” overlay=”true” size=”medium” group=”” align=”none”] I would rather sit on a pumpkin, and have it all to myself, than be crowded on a velvet cushion. ~Henry David Thoreau [flickr id=”8107333781″ thumbnail=”medium” overlay=”true” size=”medium” group=”” align=”center”] 4. Cozy The little one was so determined to snuggle with Daddy, that she sat through a scary movie to do it – after all, what’s safer than daddy’s arms? [flickr id=”8107331951″ thumbnail=”medium” overlay=”true” size=”medium” group=”” align=”center”] The best of a book is not the thought which it contains, but the thought which it suggests; just as the charm of music dwells not in the tones but in the echoes of our hearts. ~John Greenleaf Whittier [flickr id=”8107325027″ thumbnail=”medium” overlay=”true” size=”medium” group=”” align=”center”] 5. Stacked [flickr id=”8107338100″ thumbnail=”medium” overlay=”true” size=”medium” group=”” align=”center”] Each player must accept the cards life deals him or her; but once they are in hand, he or she alone must decide how to play the cards in order to play the game. ~Voltaire [flickr id=”8107326291″ thumbnail=”medium” overlay=”true” size=”medium” group=”” align=”center”]     Since I’m addicted to quotes w/ my images I’ve started to link to the Sunday Citar over at Fresh Mommy Blog w/ my photo posts every Sunday. It’s a great way to combine two of my loves 🙂 You can find more pictures over at my flickr account. Scavenger Hunt Sunday is run by the beautiful Ashley. Head on over to see more Hunters.
