Ice Breaker

Happiness is not ready-made, it comes from your own actions.

– Dalai Lama

I met this little boy today his name is Malik.  He was a little shy with me at first so I decided to break the ice with my new bubble machine.  What kid or adult  does not like bubbles?  Needless to say it worked, he was no longer shy with me and had a blast chasing down the bubbles.

Things That Make you Say “HMMM…”

Driving down this little side street by my home I came across this toilet.  Someone must have actually dumped it there instead of it falling off a truck.  I say this because it was just sitting upright just to the side of the road.

What have you seen on the side of the street that makes you say “hmmm….”?

Finally!

It has finally come, March 31 2017 was my last day of work.  I have been laid off (this is a good thing).  Knowing that you are going to be laid off is mentally a hard thing to deal with.  It felt like I was asked for a divorce but I refused and kept coming back to see if they would change there mind.  It was hard to keep coming back each day.  Since I did not have a plan I came back each and everyday.  I am glad that it is finally over.

Now I can mentally debrief for a bit before I start looking for something new to do.

On a more positive note….this has been a great winter, only 2 maybe 3 real days of snow, temperatures have been above average and spring is officially finally here.

My first flower has bloomed!

 

Gardening work begins this week…..

 

As always thanks for visiting!

Shadows and Kids

A Photographer in the Making

This little angel here had a bad day at school today.  He did not get his way so he made sure no one else did either.  After dealing with his mother and a few moments in time out.  He asked if he can take some pictures.  I started to say no because of the behavior today but decided to see what he can do.

The first image is one I took while showing him how to keep one eye open so he can look in the viewfinder.   The rest are all his.

Do we have a budding photographer here?

Keeping one eye open

 

He gave me instructions on how to pose.  He told me to do some of the same things that I say to him.

A day in the snow

Yesterday it snowed most of the day here in New Jersey. The kids wanted to go out and play in the snow so of course I let them and it was a perfect opportunity to take some pictures and practice aperture settings.  Although photos did not turn out in the quality that I wanted they were “ok”.  I still need more work.
