About a month ago my sweet husband brought home an article that talked about photowalks. I was dying to try it after reading the article. I couldn't go to the last one because I already had an appointment to work on the final assignment for my photography class. This past weekend I had a number of commitments so I wasn't going to be able to make it again. I couldn't sleep Friday night and didn't fall asleep until 4 in the morning. I didn't get to anything that I was planning on. When trying to figure out what I would do for the remainder of the day (after waking up) I remembered the photowalk. It was so much fun to go for a walk with other people that are interested in photography. I loved the experience. I took a bunch of pictures of thistles. I like thistles. I don't know why. I just do. Here is one of those pictures. Enjoy!
Scoiattolo is one of my favorite words to say. I appreciate any excuse I have to use it. I just love how it feels in my mouth and how it sounds in my ears. I wish I could explain why but I don't know the reason. I saw this little scoiattolo on my way to the library and he was kind enough to pose for me. He is such a little darling.
Honestly, I would rather post pictures from the photos I captured today. I can't post pictures that are for my upcoming assignment so I am settling by posting this picture. Don't get me wrong. I like this photo. I am just so excited about all of the images I captured today. I have spent too much time with them this evening. I am just so happy with how they came out. I'll have to share those when the class has ended. For now, I will have to satisfied the requirement of the post a week with this one.
I have neglected my blog. It has been 8 days since my last post. I am supposed to post once a week. Oops! Well, I have an excuse. Last Saturday I took some pictures. I took a ton of pictures actually. I took more pictures than I care to admit. My husband was shocked by the number and I am not ready to let that number out to anyone else. There was a good reason for the volume. I found a neat new place to take family photos. I hope I get to try it out soon and that park had a bunch of roses. I LOVE roses! That might be obvious. I loved the color of the rose above.
It is always a good idea to look into a rose before you smell it. I am glad I did when I got to this rose. There was a bee in it.
What what do we have here? A speeder. They are sooooooooooooo cute! What a wild ride it was. I am going to have to do it again some day.
This is what they look like when they are turning them around.
This is the view from the speeder I rode in.
This is the speeder I rode in. It is called the "Cadillac." It holds 7 passengers. What a sweet ride! It is for sale for anyone that is interested. The kind owner let me take the "For Sale" sign down to take a picture.
I really like this picture. I am not sure why. I saved this picture for last because that is what I do with the best.
