Tuesday and Twitter Trains!

Photobucket



This week at work has been more of the same. It seems like there's an air of disorganized chaos. I don't mind chaos, I just wish it was organized chaos. That's more my style. I'm flexible. No! Really I am! I don't care what you heard otherwise. Don't listen to the naysayers. Who likes negativity? Certainly not me. So let's get on with the fun!

Come on! Link up with me, Shellie at Shellie Sakai, and Jen at The Survival Mama for the train ride. You know you love it and we're boarding now!

And for those of you who love to take photos, Dazee, at Crazy Daze and Night Dreams, is my lovely co-host on a photo hop with me on Thursdays. You should link up with us and share the love. We sure do love it. Grab the button and show us what you see behind your lens. This week's categories are "Eye Candy and "Your Choice"

Scavenger Hunt Sunday



It's that time of the week again to share some photos with many others who also want to share. So just link up with Ashley at Ramblings and Photos and have some fun sharing your photos! Come on! You know you want to! These are my entries this week.

Paint

I'm thinking that the old Pontiac Silver Streak needs more than a new paint job. Don't you?

July-2012-0132

Green

I love how the green sets off the bloom.

July-2012-0472

Eyelashes

My son actually let me photograph him....Well his eyelashes at least.

July-2012-0072

Shapes

My buddy, Dazee Dreamer would love these glitter shapes complete with butterflies and dragonflies.

July-2012-0104

Clouds

We finally had a decent rain and the clouds hanging around the bluffs was just cool.

I Spy - Creepy Crawlies

Photobucket



I finally was able to get some photo taking time into the schedule. It's also been considerably a few degrees cooler although the humidity has been high. The breeze picked up again and that seems to help. Now link up with Dazee at Crazy Daze and Night Dreams to have the most fun you can while sharing your photos. Come on! I know you want to.
Next week's categories are "Eye Candy" and "Your Choice". I DARE YOU!!! Now to my entries!

Creep Crawlies

I found this one in the bathroom at work. The boys all said I shouldn't bring my pet to work. How else am I supposed to control those boys?

July-2012-007

I caught this one about a month ago. It's been so dry I haven't seen a bumblebee for a while.

Your Choice

I haven't really talked about a few things I really enjoy. Photography, of course. But most of you don't know how much I love old cars. I've never been able to have one because of financial reasons, but the next best thing is photography them. I've been lucky enough lately to find a few that are just cool and show the patina they have acquired over the years. I found this one right down the street from me. The first one is the grill and the second gives a better overall idea of how it looks. It's a Pontiac Silver Streak. I just can't figure out what year. I also think it's a police car. who else would have a spotlight like that?

Name Changes

Lately I’ve been thinking that even though I’m not a professional photographer, you never know when that will change. I love taking photos and some have been good enough in my mind to be blown up and enjoyed by others. So for that reason, you will see my photos labeled with “cw photography” from now on. Yeah, I still have a mad mind and you will still see them on this blog. I’m just taking a little different type of ownership of them. Like my name.

You see, some changes are coming to my personal life and I thought it was a great time to start my own legacy, not just my sense of humor on who I am. So, without any real fanfare, here is the first photo I’m posting with the new logo. Enjoy!

Tuesday and Twitter Trains!

Photobucket



I finally felt like getting out and taking some photos over the weekend. We've been so dry that everything was brown and I didn't seem to have any inspiration. If you check back later this week you'll see what I found. I think some of them came out okay. You'll have to tell me if you think so too. In the meantime, join the trains and have some fun.

Come on! Link up with me, Shellie at Shellie Sakai, and Jen at The Survival Mama for the train ride. You know you love it and we're boarding now!

I haven't felt like doing much photo taking this week. Why? I don't know but it's rather unusual for me to not take them. I always find weird things to shoot but it usually involves something of a landscape or shooting flowers. With the drought we've had there aren't as many flowers to shoot and I'm tired of taking the same old thing, brown. So I guess that means I'm not clicking the shutter as often. Maybe one of these days I'll figure out a new place to shoot. In the meantime, I'll share a couple of some I've done over time. They range from winter to summer. Enjoy!

Has your week been as tiring as mine? I know the heat and humidity has been wearing me out. I guess I'll just have to figure it out. It just seems the older I get the harder that becomes. Oh well. In the meantime link up with Dazee at Crazy Daze and Night Dreams and me to show us what you can do with your camera because I know how you think. You can't wait to link up with us.

Next week's categories are "Creepy Crawlies" and "Your Choice". I DARE YOU!!! Now to my entries!

Heirloom

Yes, this is an heirloom in the making. Can you see this as a clock? I can.

July-2012-0102

And this will be an heirloom for my kids forever.

Your Choice

This place is called the rookery. It's very peaceful back there.

And while we were there this little guy landed on the side of the boat.

Tuesday and Twitter Trains!

Photobucket



How has everyone's week been so far? Mine has been hot and humid. And since I work where I'm in and out of an air conditioned building and truck, it can flat wear me out. For the last week I've been coming home just exhausted. I feel better today though so I have to smile about that. What do you have to smile about? And now....

I see the train coming 'round the bend so get ready and join me, Shellie at Shellie Sakai, and Jen at The Survival Mama for the train ride. I know they are excited to get started and so am I.

And for those of you who love to take photos, Dazee, at Crazy Daze and Night Dreams, is my lovely co-host on a photo hop with me on Thursdays. You should link up with us and have some fun.

The Hunt is On!



I actually found some photos I could use for this week. I'm shocked! Aren't you? So link up with Ashley at Ramblings and Photos and have some fun sharing your photos! Come on! You know you want to! These are my entries this week.

Water

When you live near a major waterway, water shots are not hard to come by. This is Lock and Dam No. 7 on the Upper Mississippi River. It's fun watching barges go through.

Petal

I love the veins through the petal. They always add character to the shot.

June-2012-004

Fresh

Finally! Some fresh tomatoes!

July-2012-006

Eight

I had no inspiration for this category so you get to see when I go into work every morning. Not good, I know.

July-2012-016

Calm

This is my idea of calm.
