I was excited to capture these two shots. It is like they knew I was having a rotten day yesterday and so they posed for me. Thanks little creatures, you make my day.
It is interesting once YOU capture something in photo, it becomes yours, and you start noticing things you have not before. I have noticed the beauty of dragon flies before, even commented on a blog recently about how beautiful their pictures were, but it was not until today when I looked at my pictures that I noticed just how large their eyes are. Photographers truly do see through different eyes. I am not in the class with the pros, I will never reach that point, but I am so excited for the eyes that I see through now.
I love these little guys. We have a bucket on our porch with these pipes, and this time of the year our frogs come back.
Well, I am pretty sure they are new ones, but they are so cute and awesome. It gets to the point when they hear us come home or walk outside they will hop up to the top of the pipes for a quick hello. Last year we had, I think there were about eleven of them. Right now there are only about three or four.
I remember when as a child swimming and one of these horse flies would come around, we would scream “Horse Fly”! and everyone would splash and dive under the water.
One landed on the truck today and was able to get a picture close up.
Come with me on our anniversary date. We went down to St. Simons Island. It was very relaxing. Not too hot, the breeze was very nice. The husband did some reading while took pictures and watched people. I even caught one gentleman sitting on an interesting looking tree. I wanted a picture of the tree and he was sitting there. 🙂
My husband and I sat for a while watching people on the pier fishing, without much luck. It was a nice relaxing date. We need more evenings like this. Just to relax and be together and remember each other.
I see you ball!
I smell you ball!
I taste you ball!
I EAT YOU BALL!! Numm Numm Numm Numm!!!
Gauge loves to play with a ball. As long as it is round, or sort of round, it is a ball to him. My potatoes, my onions, tennis balls, the neighborhood golf balls, pine cones…I am telling you, anything sort of round is a ball to him. He loves it! And plays for hours!
It just amazes me daily the things I am starting to see anew. From the sand on the ground, to the true beauty of flowers. I have always thought flowers were nice, but never been one to notice the shapes of petals or drops of rain on them, or tiny creatures in their habitat. I am so grateful for this photographic journey of healing and awakening to the world around me. These pictures all come from Mother’s gardening. I can see why she finds peace when working around it.
