Is this your shoe?

Saw this in the lake on our photo walk yesterday.
I just had to get a picture.

Leaves are changing

We're only a couple days into autumn and the leaves are changing already. Not all of them, it seems kind of random. But they're changing none the less. Maybe because we had such a mild summer and it never got really hot around here.

I can't believe it's been over two weeks since I posted over here! I've been in a bit of a photo phunk lately. Haven't gone out and shot much until today. Hubby talked me into taking some shots of him to practice.

Been trying to decide where I want to go with my photography. I'd like to take that next step into a business but where do I start? I know I need some more practice, instruction, equipment and photo editing experience. Not to mention confidence in myself! I did take a photoshop class about 1.5 years ago but it was kind of basic. I have since bought another version of the software and am lost again! lol Everything is set up differently and I'm trying to find my way around.

Hubby has been great....trying to encourage me to do something! That's why we went out today.

Show Me: Front Door

Today we are showing off our Front Doors.
So far this is the one I've had the most trouble with. It just wasn't working for me. I wasn't planning to photograph the entire door, but I kinda like the way this one turned out after I softened it a bit.

Then hubby had to get in on the action when he saw that I was taking pics.....

What a goof!

Show Me: Kitchen

Today's show me challenge is your kitchen.
Sorry, but my kitchen is a little, um.....cluttered so I'm not sharing the entire room.
I'll just go with the fun part of hubby's lunchbox collection!
He has them all displayed in the area between the upper cabinets and the ceiling.
I tried to get a shot of the entire collection but that just didn't work well.

This is one of my favorites. I was a big Dukes of Hazzard and John Schneider fan as a young teen.

"I pity the fool..."

Stop by Thoughts of a father to join in the fun!

Show Me: Mailbox

Robert over at Thoughts of a Father started a new project called "Show Me". Each day this week we all share certain objects from our daily life. Stop by his blog if you'd like to participate and to see the other entries.
Today's challenge is our mailbox.

I love getting snail mail! Always have. Well, as long as it's not bills and junk. My box is the closest. We live in a subdivision where all the mailboxes are uniform (black, plastic mounted on these wooden posts), except for a few here and there that have had to be replaced. Like the one next to ours which is metal. The hinges on the plastic door aren't very sturdy so some have had to replace their box. The wooden box underneath is for newspapers. They also get filled with flyers, catalogs and junk from local businesses.

Photo Hunt: String(s)

Guitar Strings

I'm using a picture I took back in May. This is the first thing I thought of and unfortunately didn't have the time to look for something new.

Magic Wings

As in butterflies. Magic Wings is a butterfly garden that we visited on our trip to Massachusetts last month.

There were hundreds of butterflies swarming around. Some of them barely stopped long enough for you get a picture.

I like this one below. If you look closely it looks as if he is smiling! You may have to click on the image to bring it up a little bigger.

Taken in the gardens at the Yankee Candle store in South Deerfield, MA.
We usually end up visiting there any time we go to Massachusetts.
