July 06, 2010
Melissa over at Storytime introduced me to yet another photography challenge. Considering Tuesday has to be the busiest time for photography challenges, I almost passed this one up, but you guys know me…I couldn’t resist.   This week’s theme was flowers.The rules:NO EDITING AT ALLONE PHOTOMUST LINK TO PHOTO POST NOT BLOG ITSELFHAVE FUN!I took this shot back in April when I was still shooting in JPG mode.

Black & White Wednesday

June 23, 2010
Yesterday was a good day…a great day…my 28th birthday, and I am so thankful to have so many wonderful friends.

I...

Some people look forward to summer…for me, I start imagining humidity and quickly start looking forward to FALL! I guess it’s a good thing that I’m doing business in some of the northern states that enjoy beautiful breezy summers. Anyways, I keep seeing gorgeous pictures of flowers and leaves covered in rain drops. The other day, we had a rain storm (well every other day around here), so I ran outside with my camera to snap a rain-covered photo of my own. Well, the humidity took over and I was left with a weird glowy haze. I still think it looks cool and since this...
