Catching up--AGAIN

Catching up seems to be the norm for me lately with the blog. Life has caught up with some of my fellow 365 bloggers as well, but we keep trying. This is my birthday weekend, so my sweet husband surprised me with a rose in a box on the car seat as we were leaving for dinner. I shot it in our kitchen-- The balloons in the mirror are conveniently still up from my daughter's birthday at the end of January!

Here's yet another one of our kitty, Lucy. My husband insists that she chose a birthday present for me, but I won't get it until tomorrow.

This one is actually from last weekend, because I am short this week. This was taken with my point and shoot at the hotel. Daughter and I love looking over the railing WAAAY down there. Staying at a hotel is the upside of going out of town for a doctor visit.

Another point and shoot hotel shot.... "Keep walking on that treadmill lady!" It looks like that's what he's saying, doesn't it? (Daughter is adjusting the volume for me.)


Wandering around my daughter's room again. She has a collection of "sparkly" little animals. She would always pick one or two out when we went on vacation. Frogs are her favorite, so I focused on him. I'll take a photo of her frog collection one of these days. (I'm behind on posting again, but have been shooting every day--mostly mundane things! So I'll catch up posting later today. I'm so impressed with those of you who can keep up with your blogs!) P.S. I love having my lens back from repair, but it makes it more obvious that I should have dusted before I shot this! hee hee


Yes, the cactus has a name--Jennifer. It's my daughter's cactus, and she always names them. (The one before this was named Vlad.) She keeps it in a little cup of water. (The water doesn't actually touch the bottom of the pot, so I guess it doesn't get too much. It's doing quite well!) I've been playing with depth of field and still don't have it quite right, but it's fun playing.

Camera Info

Most of these have been shot with a Nikon D200. I have two lenses--the 18-135mm kit lens and a 50mm 1.8. I also occasionally use a Canon Powershot A540 point and shoot. (And a few of them are camera phone pictures!)
