Monday Rewind Blog Hop

Monday, October 31, 2011

Greetings bloggy friends, and Happy Halloween!  My pics this week include our latest activities...finding a black widow on the garage window sill...eek! It's not the greatest pic, but it was a tough angle and I didn't want to get too close.  We also enjoyed some gorgeous weather, a Halloween party, and a beautiful 5 mile hike.

Scavenger Hunt Sunday

Hello friends! I hope you've all had a great weekend! I was excited to hunt for this week's prompts, but in the end felt like I came up a little short. Sigh. For example, when we were hiking yesterday I saw the tree I wanted to photograph for the last prompt, but it just didn't turn out as dramatically as I had envisioned.  I felt the same way about most of these pics. But it's all a learning process, right? And I am enjoying the journey!

Favorite Photo of the Week

Friday, October 28, 2011

The other day at the soccer fields, I was practicing shooting portraits of the kids. There was a great breeze and the sun was setting. I love the way this picture of my older daughter came out. I think it really captured her mood in the quiet moment as she was playing by herself and picking dandelions. In the past year she's become much more independent. The more I take pictures of her, the more I see glimpses of the young woman to be. 


Shades of Autumn - Red

Thursday, October 27, 2011

I'm joining in celebrating the fun and glory of Autumn with the Shades of Autumn Photo Challenge, hosted by Kristi of Live and Love Out Loud,  Rebecca of Bumbles & Light, and Alicia at Project Alicia. I am really having a blast participating. I love seeing all the gorgeous captures from other participants. I find it so inspiring to see other photographers' work and there has been no shortage of talent or beautiful images to explore! 
Here are my selections for this week's theme: Red

Thursday's Shots

Greetings friends! Is it Thursday already? This week is flying by. We have enjoyed some beautiful weather lately, but I hear the cold and gray will be here tomorrow. I do love Fall but really dread winter. Fortunately we only have a short winter here, but those gray days really give me the blahs. 
So, for now, I'm soaking up the golden sun, the fresh air and those rich Fall colors.

What's your favorite season?
