Kitty, kitty, kitty

I was sitting sipping my morning green tea when I noticed something that might be an interesting shot...

Picture a Day

Some entries from my picture a day photos. It gets to be challenging to find something to photograph daily... but fun to try.I would love to know what kind of tree this bloom is from...
A tree that houses critters on our land, looks scary...

Through the OPEN window

I shot this on our way into a one night exhibit of art - it is not totally sharp because I had to lean up against a power pole to get still enough with what I had to shoot with (Rebel XT/ 28-80mm 3.5 lens). I had a painting in the show (it SOLD!). I brought my Rebel with me so I could get a PAD, I was kicking myself the whole time wishing I had my 1D MII... and my 24-70 2.8 lens... there were SO many photo ops... but the Rebel came through the best it could...

Our Deepest Fear

I was recently reminded by two people that I have been playing small... thanks so much for the reminder to you both!

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

Round 1

Here they are! My business plans were handed in today for the competition. I put a book with the plan and a little "God Bless AMEOWICA" button. There is still much work to be done, but these should get me to the next level of the competition... I'm so proud!

Snow DUDE

Here he is, my very FIRST Snow Dude ever in my life!

Got Snow?

In one night our country home is covered with about four inches of snow. It is so beautiful and clean... until Lucy my dog did her thing...

Anyway, being a southern California girl (from Seal Beach), I always love the experience of fresh fallin' snow... somehow it's magical...
