July Extra: Iron Maiden



I took this shot and photoshopped it for my daughter to put on her blog, but I like it so much (so very her) that I wanted to have it in the record. :)

Fifteen


Could it really be that many years since he arrived in our lives?

I guess so, because here he is with his brand new laptop. He saved for three years and we matched his saved amount as a birthday present.

Diet Coke Abstract


It was just a happy accident that I caught the angle just right so that the light over the counter lines up with the empty part of the bottle, causing the top of the bottle to disapppear.

I was lured to the shot by the red glow emanating from a stack of bottle-caps behind the diet coke.

Dave Chappelle Sees All


I needed a Dave Chappelle fix the other day so I grabbed a DVD from our inventory. Then today, I was startled to find him still hanging around, keeping an eye on me.

Are You READY?



Redskins' training camp opened today.

Sorry about the unfortunate name -- I like to call them the Redskin Potatoes.

anatomical pizza



Daughter and I both giggled at this, and said things like, "boobie pizza," while son walked out of the room in disgust.

Perhaps you just had to be there. :)

Me and the little dog, she is always a good cure for whatever ails me. This photo was taken by Equus (daughter).

2 little treasures found on my flash card today



Apparently my very adorable and creative girl borrowed the camera for a photo shoot.

7.15.2007

Storm Drain


Effect: Ink Outlines (above)



I can't decide which one! Usually I like the modded ones and Boogieman (dh) likes the originals. But, today it was the opposite.

Big Flag





I took these on Sunday, and saved them for today.

Number 15


What first caught my eye was that the light was on at midday, and second that it had a number.

Of course, I might never have noticed if it weren't for the influence of Zerodoll and Jayfish.

Bonus Shot: Grow Where You're Planted 3


I think I may need to make a category for these shots and see how many of them I can find.

The rest of my shots from today's outing to my very favorite, local paradise: Like A Kid in a Candy Store.

Progression





Angel's Trumpet, Ballerina Purple

Today, I had the good fortune to steal away for a couple of hours to one of my favorite places on this earth, a local park/garden.

*swoons*

Later, I'll post a bonus shot and a link to the rest of the pictures on my main blog. And a big *mwhaaah* to anyone who goes and admires them. :)
