New Moon

I was playing around with the telesecope last night, and the moon was seriously lighting up the sky. Jupiter was incredible, too. I'm not skilled enough to get a photo of jupiter, but here is the new moon.

Taking a Break

This has been a wonderful endeavor. I have learned so much about photography, and I have been so inspired by everyone's photographs, but the time has come for me to take a break. I love the 365 challenge, but I have to give my family and my work some of the energy that I have been putting into photography. I am not going to close down the blog, because I still hope to participate in forum challenges and post my entries here.

Thank you, thank you for all of your comments and support. I hope to have a little more time to visit blogs and leave comments. Happy Snapping!!

I have no idea what kind of bird this is, but, up close, it was very interesting looking.

This is more like it. You go to a zoo to get a shot of a lion, not a dragonfly :)

August, 15, 2009 - Zoo

Can you believe that I had to go to the zoo to get a shot of a dragonfly. The dragonfly was just sitting there waiting for me to shoot it. What could I do? I used topaz detail on it. Oh what fabulous sharpening. However...., it is slower than molasses in winter. It took over two minutes for "pre-processing."

Right in the middle of the festival, there was a couple getting married. It was so unexpected. Everyone was doing double-takes.
