The Dark Side of the Ball

The Dark side of the ball

I was just talking pictures of this, taking pictures of that and this happened.  I thought it was pretty neat, so I just went with it.

Okay, so tonight it a tired night, I have nothing and I am tired.  So I think I will save all my sage, worthless and meaningless advice for another day.

Good Night beautiful friends!!! Remember, be a blessing and be blessed, keep it positive and smile!!!


The Fan

I really like this picture, you can’t see my face. lol however, you can see one of my eyes, which I really don’t like either, but still …. I like this picture.

Today was a better day, worked with a beautiful friend and then we had lunch together.  It was actually a fabulous day, I really like my friends.  You know I say … me, myself and I a lot in my blog, it’s not that I (there it is again) am so into myself (and again), but to show folks that I am a mess and maybe you are a mess as well and I want folks to know that they are not alone.  We are all a mess in are own little way, if you are one of those perfect people who are just the greatest, well congratulations to you.  As for me, well, I am a mess, a beautiful mess and so are you.  We all shine, just in different, but we all shine.

That’s it I’m done and also tired, so I bid you all a good night and sweet dreams.  Remember, be a blessing and be blessed, keep it positive and smile.



The Light?

The What_

So the hubby and I could not agree on this one, he liked this one and I wanted a cat picture, once again.  He said, this one was different and he liked it, so I choose this one.

I really have no words to say today.  I am thankful for the air in my lungs, my family and friends.  Thankful that today we were greeted by friendly folks and the day was a good one.  Once again I am thankful for those friends who put up with me and my inability to communicate.  Thank you friends.

So wiped out this evening, so I bid you good night.  Remember, be a blessing and be blessed, keep it positive and smile.

The Bible and The Flag

The Stand-4

I thought of this one the other day and decided tonight was the night to give it a try.  I did some adjustments in Lightroom and I am very pleased with the results.

I am working on getting things done, you know marking things off my to do list.  This weekend was a great one and I am feeling so positive, just hoping I can keep it up.  Getting things done and staying focused is not my strong suite.

Anyway, have a great week my friends.  Remember, be a blessing and be blessed, keep it positive and smile.

The Back, again

Flower Power-2

So I did take a break from the flowers for one night, but they are baaaaack!!!  This one turned out pretty good, I am always trying to find interesting ways to light a subject and this one is pretty cool.

I have trying to get a little more organized, I am an OCD’s nightmare.  I really try to be organized and then, well it just falls apart and then it happens, I lose my focus.  When that happens, it is all over, very frustrating for me.  I am really trying hard to be better, stay focused in order to get things done, get organized and maybe just maybe I will get things done around here, finally!!! I lose my train of thought (which I guess is a focus issue) a lot too, I have to place notes every to remind myself to do things (the term pear-shaped loser once again comes to mind)  Focus, focus, FOCUS!!!!!

I am so tired from all this focusing I need rest now, haha.  Good Night beautiful friends. Remember, be a blessing and be blessed, keep it positive and smile.

The Keys

The Keys-6

Oh my goodness will you just look at this picture, it’s not a flower, haha.  Yes, that was my attempt at humor, just laugh and move on.

Sometimes I do question my ability as a photographer, then something happens, like when a nice comment or comments are said about my pictures.  That very thing has happened a few times in the past couple of weeks.  I will not go into details, because I don’t want to pat myself on my back too much, I might hurt myself.  But it’s nice to hear that folks like your work and think you do have talent or a creative eye.  Doubt in one’s self is a very destructive thing and it can zap all your confidence right out of you, unless of course you are one of those folks who have super exorbitant confidence, then my hat is off to you, because I am most definitely not one.  I am not saying that you should gush over everyone, but you know a kind word, a pat on the back or just saying “good job”(and of course say it with meaning), well it can go a long way with someone and their confidence.

Good Night beautiful friends.  Remember, be a blessing and be blessed, keep it positive and smile, those smiles can certainly brighten someones day.

The Half Flower

The Half-2

Surprise, surprise, surprise, I have photographed a flower again.  I have decided that I when I purchase flowers, I shall try to photograph them in as many different ways as I can come up with, so watch out.

I am a very protective person, when I like you I will defend you very fiercely if needed.  I like people and sometimes we need to step up.  I did that today and I heard someone else do that earlier this week.  It’s nice to hear when we think someone is being put down or just talked about, that we step in and defend them.  I would hope someone would do that for me, of course I have a pretty big month and can be kind of voicetress at times, so people may not be so quick to defend me or maybe since I am that way, they are constantly defending me. haha Just kidding, a little anyway.

Good Night beautiful friends.  Remember, be a blessing and be blessed, keep it positive and smile.


The Lookout

The Lookout-4

I came up with this idea today, after moving these flowers all over the house trying to find a unique and groovy picture.  Then I thought about taking them outside, that’s when it occurred to me …. pretend like the flowers are looking out the window, dreaming of being in the soil and in the fresh air.

So yesterday I was babbling on about not getting things done, so today, well today I feel as though I am on my way to getting things done.  So that’s day one of working on being more focused and just getting things done … Yay me!!!  I need to come up with a list of things I would like to get accomplished, like one for things to get done daily, weekly, monthly and of course a goal.  There should always be a plan and that’s where I fall of the wagon, I have always been a “fly by the seat of my pants” kind of gal.  Well if I want to accomplish anything I need to get into the “just get it done” kind of gal, wish me luck.

Good Night my friends.  Remember, be a blessing and be blessed, keep it positive and smile.

The Twirl

The Twirl-4

I thought of this one a few days ago when I had bought some flowers.  I think it turned out pretty cool.  So yes I am please with this one.

This afternoon while driving home I had many thoughts roaming around in my head.  The first and foremost was how my life was going.  To say that I am pleased with how things are going would be a stretch, although I am not sad I am a little disappointed.  The sad part is that all the disappointment lays with me.  I feel I could be so much more, a better photographer and a better writer, if I would just do something about it.  I sit around and think how I wish I was better at these things, however, I fail to take charge and do something about any of it.  So I am making a conscious effort to do just that, improve myself, especially in my photographer and writing, through action, that is truly the only one can improve themselves.  So watch out, I am on the move, well at least thinking about making that move(I do the thinking part really well, lol).

With all this moving and action I will be doing I must get my rest, wait maybe that’s why I get nothing done … too much rest. ha  Good Night my beautiful friends.  Remember, be a blessing and be blessed, keep it positive and smile.

The Lighted Vase

The Lighted Vase-2

I did a little experimenting tonight and although I do like this picture, I will do a little reading in order to improve this image a bit. I was in a little bit of a rush, as I have a mountain of things on my “To Do List”, so I went with quick and easy.

As I stated I have a long list of things I would like to get accomplished and the only to make any progress is to get moving!!! Since I do have a mega mountain of things to do I think I will keep this short and sweet.  I will just say, let’s be kind to each other, let’s be sure to love each other and don’t forget to love yourself. Peace out my friends.

Good Night beautiful friends!!! Remember, be a blessing and be blessed, keep it positive and smile.
