It’s been a few days…

 

I suddenly realized that I haven’t posted anything since Friday! What have I been doing? Family time on the weekend and now a week at the shore with my daughter and my mother. So, the beach has been monopolizing my time!  Here is a quick shot of the crusader… a local hotel icon..

(hopefully I’ll have some interesting shots to share next week, when I’m back at home!)

Nature’s Canvas…

Watching the weather this week has been awesome! Just about everyday a front has moved through.. quick downpours, thunderstorms, and rainbows… the clouds have been putting on quite a show!

End of the week…

I feel like it has been a long week. Lots of rainy weather and cranky days (my 11 month old!)… Time to end the week with a beautiful neighborhood sunset, and start the Memorial Day weekend with a positive attitude! We will have fun at the shore, and Lucy will take some naps! A mom can dream… …..Have a great weekend everybody!

Last week’s weekly challenge: Hands

I’m a bit behind in these weekly challenges, but I assume no one will hold it against me 🙂 The “hands” challenge was a tough one. What I learned from this challenge is that I don’t like the look of hands in photos. I guess I’m not a hands photographer. So, I took it another route… Let me know what you think!

Up a tree….

While at the zoo on the weekend, we were followed by birds of all kinds after our popcorn. The peacocks were traveling in pairs around the whole park and zoo area. This one decided just to camp out up in a tree, calling out to his friends. Making a most interesting noise that I can’t even describe. What I found fascinating about this bird in a tree was how his long tail feathers blended it with the pine needles and branches! I had never noticed how well they can camouflage those beautiful colorful feathers..

Beautiful black bear…

This guy is my favorite animal from the zoo trip yesterday, also one of my favorite shots. He looks like a very thoughtful bear.. This guy was rescued from a circus, so he is used to people staring at him! He was just hanging out on a beautiful day…
