I have several things going on at one time right now so my posts will be a little erratic and kind of random like. So in that spirit I present a random Butterfly.
I took this shot July of 2012 with my Pop’s FujiFilm S5700 after visiting with he and my Mom. Most of my shots suffered greatly during most of 2012 due to many factors: My beloved Canon Powershot S3is died and I had to learn a new camera( minor issue), Pops had a heart-attack due to the stress of being Mom’s diagnosed with stage-four lung cancer, and the knowledge that I had just spent the last Mothers I ever would with my Mom. Oh, we also had a family member living with us who was suffering from severe depression. To say 2012 was a hot-mess of a year would be an understatement but I still had nature and photography as my solace. It was a place where I could go and listen to and for the quiet things. It allowed me the space to detect the whisper that is faith and to connect to hope. I found those thing through the lens and in the smallest of things like this quiet, lovely little Fleabane.
I came across several shots I had taken late Autumn 2012 with a Fujifilm S700. My Dad had loaned it to me after my beloved Canon Powershot S3is had died. During that time he bought himself a small Nikon and gave me the S700. I use it from time to time and this was my weapon of choice on a very bright but cold morning by the lake. I saw these this morning and it has me motivated to brave the cold and head to the lake here in a bit. Till The next time here is a little something fowl from awhile ago.
I have had two of the craziest days this weekend. The Bride is in school again and I am her lab partner or ” slave monkey and photo bug” if you wish. The great thing of on-line schooling is that which is also the worst thing: Technology! We are having issues to say the least…uh not us but with the techno-stuff.
I also have had a mechanical issue with my ride and found out today I will have to get the last little part, to finish the job, from the dealer. Oh, I also got a foreign object stuck in my eye.( I seem have a gift for this but it still stinks when it happens.) After flushing my eye for at least a half an hour, and what seems to have been divine intervention, I am object free in the eye department.I have never felt pain like that before and I am gratefully for the gift of sight.
So what to do in such a frenzied mess? Share some captures I grabbed in between the madness!
As The Boy and I took our morning stroll, in search of the perfect poo”spot”, I noticed that dew was gracing all natures wonders this fine morning. After his business was completed we went back inside and I grabbed my Sp350 and pops FinePix S700.The hope was to get several shots with the morning sun dancing across or draping the morning dew draped landscape. Here are a few of the Dew as I see it. (As an aside to clear up any confusion The Boy is my little buddy Ficus, a Corgi, not a real boy. Upon reflection it is now past his bath time, due to an unexpected surgery, and he smells like a teenage boy so there are some similarities!)
