365*85 ~ Hints of Spring ~ Assignment

I was very pleased with the hints of spring that I came upon.  If it wasn't for this assignment, I may not have been looking quite yet for any pineapples, but sure enough, I found three already!  Woo-Hoo!

365/84 ~ Do You See What I See? ~

I was making sourdough style bread the other day.  I covered my bowl in plastic wrap and as the yeast had been doing it's thing for over 24 hours, the plastic formed this enormous bubble above the bowl, I wanted to take a photo of it...

...after closer inspection, I realized I can just about see my entire kitchen in there...including me!

365/83

Our Boxer, Stormie, has the most amazing dog personality.  Seriously.  You can ask anyone who knows her, she has this fantastic way of communicating that I just love (yes, we have an empty nest, lol...can you tell?).  Her personality goes from tender head hugs, to the most precious chicken beggin faces, to silly happiness when we come home to absolute monster when it comes to play time!

One of her favorite things to do is chase RC cars...

I love the seriousness in her face here (she was barking at it), and the muscles in her legs...such power!


I love this photo, because if you look closely, you can see she has just gone into a lunge, her front feet are off the ground...


I ran across the field, then Hubby told her to "get Momma"...this is her craziness coming at me....


Sorry if this shot looks a little, er,...um,...offensive?  I just think she has the cutest little legs and hiney muscles, LOLOL...I love the way she's kickin' up dirt ...funny thing is she trying to chase an RC Airplane...um...it's in the SKY sweetie pie... :)


Would you be scared if this was running full force at you?  You should be, she might knock you over before you licks you clean with that huge slobbery tongue! :)

365/73 ~ Friend or Foe? ~

I was laying in one of my flower beds (yes, in the privacy of my backyard,lol), photographing some purple lantana clusters.  I didn't notice this little red bug until I looked at the photos on the computer...do you see him?  Lucky shot!

365*72 ~ Overflow ~ (Angle Assignment) :)

I learned something yesterday....I learned that my guitar photo from yesterday was not an "angle" photo...the camera must be tilted left or right...see it's true!  You do learn something new every day! :)

365*71 ~ Praise ~ (Angle Assignment)

This instrument is so special to me.  As it lays in the arms of my precious husband, he gently glides his fingers along those strings, and praises are lifted up high as our hearts are bound together in worship to the Lord...

365/68 ~ Golden Morning ~ Macro Series

This is my first time using the macro lens that I got with my camera.  I thought I'd do a weeks worth just to get a feel for it.  I realized when I opened the photos up on the computer that EVERY little speck of dust on the lens shows up!  Duh! :)
