Day 101

A tree, a path and a detail of life
We celebrated the gorgeous weather today by going to the park, and rambling along the trails. It was just a perfect activity for today! Have a happy weekend, all!

Day 99

After the storms...
The east coast had a night of it! This morning, there were bits and pieces of embattled branches, leaves and even some lawn furniture all over the landscape. I pray for those who lost in mother nature's fury...

Day 98

Dreaming in color
Today was a busy day with too many deadlines, too much fluorescent lighting and not enough daydreaming. I wish I could have sat in the grass for only an hour or so, and soaked up the lovely afternoon. Maybe tomorrow...

Day 97

Don't bug me! 
 I am overtired and need serious sleep. I even deleted my first picture of a barbed wire fence to set off the frill of all my floral shots. I can only hope that this guy is resting for the both of us. Busy is good, but so is 12 hours of sleep! Happy Tuesday!

Day 96

Back home and back at it...
We made it home this afternoon after a long drive. The neighbors Gerber Daisies were there to greet us in full bloom!

Day 95

Wood floors and water jugs
I am at my parents house, so I have a whole new set of scenery to shoot today. I liked the color coordination of this jug and the hard woods in the kitchen. I am thinking about Photo-documenting this house in the summer, since it is where I grew up, and I never, never want to forget it.

Day 94

Lace lineage
This is the Baptismal gown that has been in my family since the 1930's. My aunt wore it. My mom wore it. My sisters and brother wore it. I wore it. My nieces and nephew wore it, and today, my baby, Gil wore it.

Day 93

On the road again...
Today, we slept little and drove our little hearts out all the way to NY. This was in West Virginia, at a rest stop on I-81. We were getting there...almost, almost!

Day 92

Old beaded necklace
I found this necklace a few years ago on a scavenge of my parents old brick house. I occasionally don them to brighten up my consistently black attire. I have no idea who they belonged to, but I am glad I found 'em!

Day 91

"I don't know why you say good bye, I say hello"
Okay, I was not in Sweden, I was at IKEA. Tonight, I played with my editor to make wall graphic photo a little more fun and interesting. Enjoy!

Day 89

Beautiful mess
Memorial Gardens was closed today to my dismay, but I got plenty of pics under the canopy of old trees and sunshine just outside the gate. I wanted to share this one because it was of decent quality, and was a different take on the colorful petals and landscapes I usually plague my page with. Happy Monday, all!

Day 87

Fruit of my friends
We went for Korean Barbecue at a friends house, and they just so happened to have a bunch of fruit sitting by an accent light. Lucky me, on all accounts!

Day 86

Surging sun - morning sky
I caught this at a stop light this morning and I completely thought this would look better black and white. I was wrong. The watercolor sky was too delicate and pretty to wash out. The sun is getting ready to blast above the clouds and provide Carolina with a wonderful weekend welcome!

Day 84

It's not what's on the outside...
It's what's on the inside that counts!

The wind

- Cat Stevens

Day 82

Little Souls
These flowers (in my neighbor's yard) are so soft and delicate and dense in their clusters. To me, they look like little souls moving toward bodies to live, love and exude.

Day 81

Japanese Maple (Part II)
Today was one of those days that I had great expectations for a mind blowing shot for my blog. It didn't happen. What I got were a few "okay" shots. This one stood out for it's nice coloration, and I resisted posting it at first because I already have a Japanese Maple picture. Oh well, here you go (again). It's nice though, isn't it??

Day 78

Strawberry sweetness
I don't have a bad memory about a strawberry. I like the taste, the color and even the size. Instead of heading outside with my face in the lens, I brought something from the outside in, and took some silly pictures today. I leave you not with a strawberry quote, but a quote from a (Darryl) Strawberry:
"We were going to win a lot of championships together."

Day 77

I have dreamt of getting a shot like this. My, am I lucky! I didn't yet get a good shot all day, and the grass was just mowed...all but a little patch, so I could get my picture. I hope you all had a great and wonderful Wednesday. I did!

Day 76

Gimme Shelter
It didn't just rain here last night, and there wasn't just a little wind. Power lines were down, interstates closed and trees were snapped like twigs. Someone got sleep, however, and it wasn't me or Nate.

Day 75

Putting the pedal to the metal

Okay, it's official. We have been to Charleston, and the trees are all blooming now. Spring is in overdrive. Yes, yes yes!

Day 74


Now that I get up before sunrise almost everyday with my little guy, I get to the sun peeking up, waiting for the "go ahead" to illuminate the day.

Day 73


We took Gil for his first beach trip today at the Isle of Palms. The weather is perfect for this time of year. Our little ocean visit was followed up by a nap by the Shephard three, with the windows wide open and the sound of the ocean singing a noon time lullaby.
