I truly think that there is more beauty in imperfection than perfection, for it is the imperfect things that truly make us beautiful. --me

Mid-Spring Sunset

This was the view I had looking east out my front door. The wooded lot behind my home is what I will miss most about my old home. I still get to look out my front door to see gorgeous sunsets though. I had started a series of images that I had entitled "Out My Front Door" mostly of sunset images. My only problem is that they are all on film and most of them still need developing. I so need to get my film developed. I think, now that my vehicle is paid off, I need to start taking a few rolls in each month until I have them all developed. Does anyone have any recommendations on whether I should use some place local or should I use one of the mail services? I don't know.

It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas

Okay so I'm early or maybe I'm late for Christmas, but after all that nice warm weather, to be greeted with snowfall all day Saturday, I was beginning to wonder.

Forgotten Photos

These images are from fall of 2008. They are from a side-trip that I took on a trip across state to St. Joe. They are from the Augusta Covered Bridge area. The first picture I have posted other similar images. I love this picture in particular - the trail disappearing into the woods, the gorgeous golden color of the leaves, it is just too inviting I can't stand it. I'm ready for the walk now, only I live almost two hours away. Go HERE to read about this trip. I need to visit there again soon.

I think I want to try and capture MI (that should be read "my", get it a play on words) covered bridges during other seasons as well as the fall. (I was looking through my bridge pictures and noted that they are all from the fall season.) This will be a project that lasts a few years because well, I don't have the free time like I once had when I started this project back in 2005. I've had two of the best gifts bestowed upon me and have been loving every minute of it, although at this season in my life I don't have the time I once had and have to do much more planning in order to have free time but this will change over time.

I hope you enjoy the pictures. They are of my favorite season. The only thing I don't like about the fall is the reminder that colder weather is ahead. I've always said if they could give me 80 degree weather and snow I wouldn't mind winter because I love love love the beauty of snow but hate hate hate the cold.

Bee Hunting Again

I honestly enjoy the difficulty in trying to photograph a bee. They rarely hold still long enough to do this hence the thrill of the final image. I am hoping to get some more closer images this coming year.

Also I have added a sidebar list of some of my favorite places to visit in my neck of the woods.

What type of bird is this guy?

This guy came flying down in front of us as we were walking around the zoo. I will admit I haven't spent much time research what kind of bird he is, thought I would ask all of you as I try to find my groove in this whole blogging world again.

A Sitting Duck

I promised a little while ago that I would be posting images from my many zoo trips this past summer, well I am holding to that promise, only I'm a little later than I thought I would be in delivering that promise.
