You Capture: Vehicles

July 15, 2010
This week’s You Capture theme is Vehicles. I hoped that while I was at the beach that I might find some interesting vehicles to photograph – we saw golf carts, six-person bicycles, even an El Camino. Unfortunately, I didn’t always have my camera on me when we passed these neat vehicles. Instead, I’ll leave you with two images that represent two type of “vehicles.” This first shot is one of the wheels from a horse and buggy (well the buggy portion) at the Cotton Exchange. A little history: At the turn of the century, majestic sailing ships delivered...

POTW Thursday: National Pride

July 08, 2010
First off, I was out of town yesterday, so I’ve just now caught up on all the blogs I follow. I love commenting on the work of my friends but if for some reason I overlooked you…just know I still heart you. With that said…This week’s POTW (Picture of the Week) theme was National Pride – how appropriate considering we (if you’re in the United States) just celebrated the 4th of July.  The You Capture theme is closely related: America. Earlier this week, I shared my THREE firework photos worth saving…but those didn’t really say...

You Capture: Get Down Low

June 24, 2010

I know I’ve mentioned the Rose Garden a time or two, but yes…I was at the Rose Garden waiting to meet with Jenny and Natalie when I saw a mushroom on the ground. You might be addicted to photo challenges if you see a mushroom on the ground, and your first thought is, “awesome…a mushroom…that would be great for this week’s You Capture challenge.” I have a problem, but it’s completely harmless (I think). I love this shot, but only...

You Capture: Water

June 17, 2010
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...
