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:
Tell your readers how your journey into blogging began. Be as verbose or shy as you like.
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.
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.

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

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.
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.
