I spent the day watching my grand daughter Ruby...
It was a great time, I rocked her, fed her, rocked her some more,
rocked her, fed her, rocked her some was lovely :)
It has nothing to do with the photos I'm posting
other than a reminder that I love snow...

and I love Ruby...
Did I say that I rocked her?
Even sang her some songs.
You know the ones, the ABC's, You are my Sunshine,
and I hummed a lot...she liked it, and I rocked her...

This was the view from my window as I rocked Ruby.
Looks like the photos do have something to do with my day
of watching Ruby and rocking, singing, humming and feeding her.
Did I say that I rocked her?
I love rocking her as much as I love the snow!
Happy New Year!

Don't hate me...

but I LOVE snow!
The more the better, in my opinion.
It could snow every day and I'd love it!
Now mind you, I admit I don't love driving long
distances in snowstorms, but I LOVE snow.
I do, I do, I really really do :)
I lived in Northern Michigan for 20 years.
I loved the winters there, it snowed every day, literally, every day.
What did get old was the length of winter, but the snow...I LOVED it!

So, I took three rolls of film (72 photos) with my camera,
the one that the auto focus doesn't work...
This photo is purposely out of focus,
which I love and is now my screen saver :)

This photo was out of focus,
but not on purpose.
We can blame my eye sight, but I still like it :)

This is Ruby, she's looking at the Christmas Tree lights.
She is mesmerized by the lights, she loves them.
She's also out of focus...but I love her and she's still cute.

Then there's the other 69 photos I took
which are mostly all out of focus and basically crap!
Moral of the story; add have eyes checked to my goal list for 2010,
just under get a new camera :)

Happy New Year!!!!!

Here's Erik, "Erik with a k,"
I've know him since he was just a little guy,
his mom and I are close friends.
We went out a couple times for his
senior photos. All in all we took about 600 photos.
Our first shoot started out a little rough , he wasn't at all sure he liked
having his photo taken. He did loosen up and we had fun.
By the time we were done he was a pro...
Afterwards he said "It was hard work and was tired!"

This location is in downtown Grand Rapids.

This guy was on the wall...I love him ;)

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...
well at least I'm thinking about Christmas.
Going to put up my tree today,there's snow outside
and I'm looking at recipes of Christmas Cookies (and drooling),
oh and hot coco sounds GRAND!!!

This photo is from my June 09 trip to Portland, Oregon.
One day when we were out walking around
the neighborhood checkin stuff out and
we came across a garage sale, nothing to exciting,
nothing I couldn't live without,
but I did like this box of Christmas stuff.
I didn't buy it , but thought it was fun, in June,
in Portland when Christmas seemed
so far away (winter too for that matter).

Merry Saturday everybody and Happy Hanukkah!

Dear Blog,
How I have missed you! I've been cameraless (without camera) and desperate to take photos.
In an effort to feed my photography soul I busted out my film camera and am waiting the arrival of my first roll of film that I've taken in a while. It will be interesting to see how the photos turn out given the fact that the auto focus is broken and how well I actually can manually focus with my sighted-ness, or lack there of.

As I sit here blogging along I can look out my window at the first winter blizzard of the season. It's beautiful. All the trees in the woods are snow covered and snow is falling through the branches and it's burrrrrrrisk! Snow how I love thee...

Farewell blog...for now. I will post new photos on you soon...I promise. Never fear photos will re-appear :)

For now an oldie but a goodie...from warmer times.

Looks can be deceiving

senior photo shoot at the beach
Although it was beautifully sunny
it was not warm but burrrrrrrrrrrrrisk!

It's rainy and windy outside.

A great day to stay inside and watch
the fall leaves blowing and swirling
and put my feet up...

I did not take this photo...
Or this one. 
How do I know this you ask? 

I know this...
because here I am! :)

Random fun stuff...
resale shop...
in Portland Oregon
fun stuff to look at...
nothing I needed
It was fun just taking photos...
and watching and listening to the
women who owned and operated 
this store.  They had to be in their
mid 50's and had tatoos and peircing's
everywhere.  Very interesting characters.
Now I'm wondering why I didn't take their photos?

This is funny to me...
I'm taking a photo, of someone taking a photo,
that's taking a photo, of some people in the background, 
that are taking photos

Photographers don't like to have their photos taken,
and will often use their cameras as a cover to having their photo taken
I know this because I do this :) 

See, he just won't let me take his photo, which is ok,
because at this point no one else was ready for the shot either!

His stance  cracks me up...which was why he did it :)
