Award time.



I got a couple of awards this week. Since I am on my long stretch at work I am slow getting them posted. The one above is from the blog The Mind of ~Ifer

The rules are pretty simple:
  1. Tell your readers how your journey into blogging began. Be as verbose or shy as you like.
  2. Pick 3-5 fellow bloggers whom you adore and write what exactly it is you value about that person or their blog. The more you write about them the better. This is a chance to really appreciate your blog friends who have been there with and for you through thick and thin.
  3. Let the blessed winners know they have been awarded.
So first of all how did I get into blogging................... Starting keeping track of my weight loss and my photos, Have been blogging over 4 years. I started out on a soni cypershot and move up to my canon.. I still consider myself a point and shot photographer but thats not all bad. I shoot what I see when I see. I do think I am seeing some improvement. Anyway blogging is away to see know photography and meet some wonderful people. Hi there wonderful people.

So now then to pick some of my own.
Karen has been on a unique journey of learning who she is and becoming comfortable with it. She is a great photography and a dear friend. You deserve the award my friend. Please visit Kbears Journey.

Caroline Ford also has a wonderful blog and shares my love of photography. I met her on the Black and White site where we post our photos. So Karen please accept this from the heart. Check out Fords Family Photos.

And last but not least is my dear friend Jimmy. His blog always makes me laugh, I love the photos and his sense of humor. He is one of the few friends I let call me Jules. Maybe we will get to see some of his photos some day. Hummmm Jimmy. Anyway visit Jimmy's journal.

Once again thank you for the award. I am honored.

Virtual Vacation

I close my eyes and I can hear the wind through the trees


Barefoot I feel the cool water on my feet and the smooth stones underfoot.
My face uplifted I can feel the warmth of the day


And breath in deeply of the grasses.


I am there

A post a Day, I did it.



I thought these Yeti's waving goodbye was a great last shot to signify the last post of the month. I did, a post a day for the entire month.

Sandhill Cranes



We were driving in Yellowstone and came across several cars pulled over and people taking pictures of some birds in the distance. I leaped out of my car, put my telephoto lens on and started snapping away. "What are shooting at I asked the lady next to me?" I didn't even know, LOL. It must be good though for everyone to stop. My eyes were bad enough I couldn't even see how beautiful they were until I downloaded the photos.

End of dreams



The old packing plant opened in 1917 and will be completely demolished by 2010. In 1974 the packing plant closed, the Stockyards started their slow death and the building stood empty. Then in 1976 a local business man opened it up with numerous small interesting shops, places to eat and a bowling alley. The downtown suits and powers that be at the time fought it tooth and nail sticking so many regulations and hurtles in the way the dream was never fully realized. It died once again only to be vandalized by a couple of young punks who started it on fire. So many memories there. My first bowling league. I taught CPR there. Great little shops and a strange wonderful atmosphere. Goodbye old building.

Even without color, lovely



Even without color a flower is lovely, the symmetrical petals, the texture, each detail perfect. And then to top of the perfection most come with a lovely scent. It's a good world.

When you have only two pennies left in the world, buy a loaf of bread with one, and a lily with the other. ~Chinese Proverb
