Live Every Moment’s photo challenge theme this week is “pets.” If you look up at my header, you’ll see my pet (um…is that really the relationship I have with Kitty Paw?). Seeing how I’ve embarrassed her enough this week (and the embarrassment will continue – more on Sunday), I thought I’d give her a break and share another photo of Copenhagen. Copenhagen is my brother-in-law’s hunting dog. My understanding is that he’s still a little young and in the process of being trained, but for now it makes me sad to see him behind bars...
Pine Cone

November 12, 2010
On Tuesday, I shared a picture of my brown teddy bear for Shutter Love Tuesday. As it turns out, this week’s Live Every Moment theme is also brown. I told Tara that I would try to find another brown photo for Friday (and in my mind, I was thinking it needs to be a macro). Well, as luck would have it, I found what I believe is the perfect brown macro…a pine cone.

Tara, over at Live Every Moment, is starting her very own photo challenge. This week, the theme is “in disguise.” I immediately thought of the photo below. I could tell you a story, but I think it’d be a lot more fun for you to caption it for me.  I’ve actually been  thinking about doing a “caption this” challenge…I just don’t have enough silly photos to provide such a challenge consistently each week. However, I still think this will be fun…so give me your best shot! I’ll highlight my favorite caption on Monday. On another note,...
Sky Watch Friday

Have I mentioned that I love playing with my new Lensbaby Composer? I took it with me to Houston earlier this week and thought I’d try using it on landscapes. Actually, I was getting ready for dinner when I noticed the beautiful sunset. I was staying at the Airport Marriott, so I had a great view of the terminal. I shared these with my husband and his response was, “but they’re blurry.” Ah yes…the beauty of a lensbaby.      Hope you have a great day and weekend! For more beautiful skies, go
