… a rock.



Love is the flower of life, and blossoms unexpectedly and without law,
and must be plucked where it is found and enjoyed.

No Cookie Cutters Have Been Sacrificed…

…in the making of these photos.

Some of you may remember this postย from last year. Well, I finally got around to doing a little experiment and was quite pleased with the way it turned out. Thankfully it didn’t burn as fast as I thought (or was afraid) it would, and I had several shots to choose from. I was also afraid that I would have to sacrifice my favorite cookie cutter (not that I actually ever make cookies with, it’s strictly for photography purposes ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) but thankfully it’s still good as new.

Once again I have to thank Brianย for his help. Not with editing this time,ย but settings advice….even though I almost regretted listening to him and shooting in RAW. Thanks, friend ๐Ÿ™‚

This was my birthday cake…. got myself a piece, and as soon as I turn my back, to put the rest back into the refrigerator, Trevor runs over and tries to steal it!

Looks like our plum trees are about to bloom…

2012/052: Just Ducky

On January 24/25, 2012 we got 6 inches of rain within 24 hours, which pretty much turned our backyard into a small pond, and the little ducky got to take a little swim ๐Ÿ˜‰

2012/050: Bonus – Meet Trevor

On the day before Valentine’s Day, we added a new member to our family. His name is Trevor ๐Ÿ™‚
Trevor has a long lost cousin Stuart, who just went to live with his new family all the way across the Atlantic Ocean in England…..where I’m sure he’ll be getting into all kinds of trouble…

From January 28, 2012

Two of my favorites from the series… did I not say in the Teaser, that it was a sunrise worth photographing? ๐Ÿ˜‰
The pictures don’t even do it justice…

2012/049: Bonus – Birthday Wish

Of course I’m not telling!

2012/049: 22

That’s right! Since my “selective dyslexia” won’t work for a few years, I’ll just cut my age in half! ๐Ÿ˜‰
They do say, that you’re only as old as you feel, and I don’t feel a day over 22!

One of my favorites…. a reflection of the sunrise in my car’s hood. (Can you see the shot I missed?)
