All taken w/ Canon Rebel XS.

As the lead-in states it was a see-saw week.  Very cold temperatures to start, ending with a gorgeous couple of days. We took advantage of one of the days to go to the zoo.  You’ll have to go to my Flickr account to see ALL of those pics – only a couple are here.

1. Words
Words are things; and a small drop of ink,
Falling like dew upon a thought, produces
That which makes thousands, perhaps millions, think.

2. Under
I’m eighteen years behind in my ironing. ~Phyllis Diller

It’s my ironing board. Yup. Figured it would make for some interesting lines and shadows. Only light is daylight and a flashlight used to cast shadows for fun.

Photography love...

3. Orange
Orange is the happiest color. ~Frank Sinatra

We fancy men are individuals; so are pumpkins; but every pumpkin in the field goes through every point of pumpkin history. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

4. Fly
I had a picture of a bird, but I didn’t want to go typical. I loved the jellyfish…floating and soaring through the water on pure instinct alone.

Another one for a-typical. A leaping lemur mid-flight. I have a much better one in my archives, but I didn’t want to dig this week.

5. Always look on the bright side
The secret of contentment is knowing how to enjoy what you have, and to be able to lose desire for things beyond your reach. ~Lyn Yutang

It was cold, dark, and rainy outside – but bright, warm, and cozy inside.

A Simple Thing:
I have two simple things this week. I simply could not chose.  First is my girls – who asked me to take a picture of them at the zoo and posed so beautifully for me.  The second is a zebra picture I took. It’s almost SOOC – I just had to adjust the exposure a tiny bit. Otherwise, no cropping or anything. It makes me so happy at it’s gorgeous simple complexity that I had to add it into my simple things.
