Flower of the Day

“There are two great days in a person’s life – the day we are born and the day we discover why.”

~ William Barclay

 

I believe one of the reasons why I was born was to be a mother and a photographer.  I think there is more to the photography part that I am yet to discover.

Have you discovered why you were born? If not too personal, please share.

Photo of the Day – Trichomes

In response to this weeks Daily Post Photo Challenge – prolific, I have chosen to share the hairs on a Poppy flower bud.  The botanical name for the “hair” is trichomes.

In a few days it will open and share with us it’s full beauty like the others that have already bloomed.

“..a way of feeling…”

Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.

(Almost) Wordless Wednesday – Meet me at the water pump..now!

What do you see when you look at this photo?  Does it make you think of possible stories about things that happened at the water pump many years ago?

Coming to Life

Today was another chilly and rainy day here.  However, I did not let that stop me from taking a few pictures.

My yard is starting to come alive again.

Photo of the Day

Spring has finally sprung on the calendar, in the air and in my feelings.  I went to a local park and my mother’s house to take a few pictures, then went to a local store, Produce Junction, and bought a bouquet of colorful flowers.

It felt good to be out photographing again.  Looking at all the buds starting to form on trees, flowers on others and even some plants bursting through the soil just made me feel good today.

I can not wait till the spring warmth is really here.

What do you think?

He’d Rather Be….

My grandson, Arai, has been a bit under the weather the last couple of days with a cold and asthma acting up again.  Instead of him resting like his mother said, he’d rather be out in the snow with me taking pictures.  He did not care that he had his pajama shorts on and his shoes on the wrong feet he was determined that he was going out.

I had to convince him that if he was better tomorrow we will go out and play in the snow.

 

We are experiencing a winter wonderland. The new says that it could be as much as 12 inches.
