Day 39

Prelude of blooms
Yellow belles, daffodils and a few flirty tulips are starting to show up on the street for a great Spring inception for 2011. Thank God! It was just about to storm, so I ran out for some gloomy shots, but instead I got extra bright shots (with flash). Admittedly, my pictures this week aren't winning any awards, but they are a taste of my life, and that is what will be nice to remember.

Day 38

Clean bottles
We are officially set for the day! Clean bottles, sunshine and an outing planned to see friends. Happy Sunday!

Day 37

This little piggie...
I just love tiny toes, especially Gil's. The three of us had a nice day together, but we did not go to market, but we did go "wee wee wee all the way home" after some Greek food. Yum!

Day 36

Mirror, mirror on the wall
This is a scene from my Friday afternoon at J Studio, waiting for my much needed hair cut and some good laughs with Joey.

Day 35

A glimpse of my life
There is no better sancuary in our home than in Gil's room. It's bright and peaceful, and has bits and parcels of what life is like here. This, my friends, is what it is now all about.

Day 34

Love Nest
This tiny little birdhouse sits all year long in our Crepe Myrtle in the front yard. Perhaps two tiny little love birds live here in the off season.

Day 33

It was the end of the work day and the break room was quiet, and full of shadows and reflections. I documented it and got a little more yellow in this week. Maybe I have a theme going here...

Day 32

I ventured out in the dark tonight, experimenting with flash,distance and what light I could muster from head lights and porch spots. I worked up lots of ideas for later shots, and I kind of like this one, the simplest of my subjects, eventhough I really didn't want to at first.

Day 31

Quiet keys
I am pretty sure that everyone with a piano and a camera has a version of this shot, so I just had to do a study on my old tired keys that quite fankly, have been neglected for the past few months. I need to get to know my piano again. So-la-ti-do!

Day 30

Birthday Cake!
Gil and I went to a birthday party, and I had as much fun taking pictures of the cake debacle as Leah had destroying it. Why isn't it acceptable for adults to dive into confections with no utensils?

Day 29

Let's get this started
I have been pretty good about going ot the gym, but now I am officially tackling my last 10lbs of baby weight. My message to the extra fat: "Be afraid. Be very afraid!"

Day 28

My head's in the clouds
I could probably post 300 of the 365 pictures this year of the gorgeous Carolina skies. Today is a beautiful day here, and is just an appetizer for what March and April will bring. Hooray for Spring!

Day 27

Gil's Rosary
Gil met his Godfather this week, my brother. I decided to take this shot of the rosary that my sister brought back from Rome this summer, on the bible that Nate and I got for our wedding.

Day 26

I just love geese in formation. They are so very brave to make their annual trek South, and then back again, simply because they are geese.

Day 24

"Old Time Photos"
This is an abandoned storefront in Savannah. The shop burned down, and they lost all of their props so they went out of business, but I still got an old time photo of my own today.

Saturday, February 12, 2011

Day 23

We headed to Savannah this weekend to see friends, and so of course I had to take a picture of Spanish moss in an old tree in a square. Of course!

Day 22

Rise and Shine!
I had some time before work, so I headed across the street to the field and got some close ups of the long grass. I picked this one becuase I like the color gradient in the background and I actually got the subject in focus this time!

Day 21

"Once upon a time...
something happened to me.
It was the sweetest thing that could ever be.
It was a fantasy, a dream come true.
It was the day I met you. "

Day 20

Here comes the sun, little darlin
Most mornings, I see a beautiful scene in the sky just before I drop Gil off. I promised myself I'd catch it one day (at least one!), and so I did.

Day 19

A bird...
does not sing because it has an answer. It sings because it has a song.

Day 18

No Trespassing
I thought it was appropriate to take this picture now, while all the branches are tangled and brittle, rather than when it looks nice and inviting in the Spring. I have had my eye on this sign, I guess since it now stands out against the drab palette of 'dead and dreary'.

Day 17

Tub Time
Bath time is one of Gil's (and our) favorite things to do. Most days, Nate and I both help get Gilly nice and clean, and watch him splash, smile and kick all the way through.

Day 16

Saturday morning
Black coffee, happy baby and a little more rain in the forecast. I guess we have to stay inside again. Fresh air, I miss you!

Friday, February 4, 2011

Day 15

Rain, rain, go away
It's cold and it's rainy, but today is an otherwise wonderful day. I hope yours is too.

Day 14

Fire Hose Connection
I shot this at a site visit this afternoon, as part of my building documentation. There is something about the connections radiating out from the central line and redness that I find attractive against the light colored tilt panel.

Day 13

Beads and Iron
My mom and I went shopping at the warehouses in South End Charlotte and found this little gem. I had it hidden in my closet for months and months and finally our music area has light, crooked lampshade and all!

Day 12

Morning Ritual
Every morning my husband feeds Gil while I get ready for work. We both go in to the nursery to say good morning, give a hug, a kiss and start our day off right, all before the sun comes up.
