Pardon the absence

The last week has been rather busy, Christmas, family and now sickness, I can’t win. I think I’m over the worst of it, even if it feels like I hack up a lung every time I cough, TMI right? so once everything returns to normal, I will be back with more photos, and maybe a new challenge.

One last thing, Thank you to all who read, follow, or comment. It brings me joy every time to look at those stats knowing someone enjoys this blog enough to take time to like it, or comment. Thank You!

Happy 2013! Take that Mayans!


Don’t You Love When You Finally Figure Something Out?

I love looking at bokeh shots, but have always been jealous, thinking I couldn’t do it with my camera, till last night I started playing with settings and I was finally able to get a bokeh shot of my own, a few in fact. ¬†But I’ll just post this one since I like this one so much. ūüėÄ Next thing to do is figure out how to do shapes. wish me luck.



Christmas At the Zoo

Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house Not a creature was stirring, No seriously not a creature was up, not even the mouse.


The Zoo had been so lovingly decorated to bring the most joy to one and all.





The fire so warm, one could not help to bask in its glow.




and lights so bright, I dare anyone not to smile.





Good times were had by all, but Man did I hurt!

Happy Yule

 Merry Christmas

Happy Hanukkah

Blessed Kwanzaa

To all who read this blog, I wish the truest blessings of love, happiness, and prosperity in the new year.
