Manitowoc Breakwater Lighthouse 1

Stop number 3 on the lighthouse tour takes us to Manitowoc, WI. I'm much happier with the way these turned out than the last two.

Wisconsin Lighthouse {Sheboygan Breakwater}

Sheboygan Breakwater Lighthouse

The second stop on our lighthouse tour was at the Sheboygan Breakwater lighthouse. Again we couldn't get very close. As you can see the water was really splashing up. So needless to say, I'm a little disappointed with the photos I got.

I'm freezing!

Here's my poor daughter, freezing! She's the one who claims she's never cold.

Wisconsin Lighthouse {Port Washington Breakwater}

Port Washington Breakwater Lighthouse

Here's the first of my lighthouse photos from our road trip last week. That first day the weather wasn't all that great and it prevented us from getting very close on a couple. This was one of them. It was so cold and windy that the water was very choppy and blowing up over the area you could walk out. None of us wanted to get soaked on top of being so cold!! This is the best shot I got of this one.

Faces: Week 15 Self Portrait

Self portrait

This week's theme at iheartfaces self portrait. To enter this week you have to take a photo of yourself while holding the camera. No use of tripods. If you want proof that I did just look into my sunglasses! :-)

This was a hard one for me. It's hard enough looking at photos of me that others take but trying to take one myself that I'm OK with is something else! I deleted a lot of photos! Plus it ain't easy even getting a decent photo when you're blindly pointing the camera at yourself!

I took this one last week on our family road trip. I decided to use picnik this week and applied the Holga-ish effect. It replicates the effect of using a Holga camera

Soda Can


I reluctantly let my younger (9 yo) daughter snap a few photos yesterday. I have issues letting other people hold/use my camera! LOL The first week I got it my mother-in-law just about dropped it and I've been paranoid ever since.

Anyway, I thought I'd share one that she took. She was photographing this can from all different angles. I thought this one turned out pretty good.

Faces: Week 13 My Friend and I


This week's theme at iheartfaces is "My friend and I". This is my oldest daughter (bottom) and one of her BFFs. They thought my request for them to lay like this on the floor was weird. This time I'm putting her in the adult category, I think it's a better fit since most of the kid photos are of much younger kids.

Photo Hunt: Stripes


A little late today, but I'm here! This week's photohunt theme is stripes. Wasn't able to get out and get new photo so this is from our visit to the zoo last October. I stood there for the longest time waiting for this zebra to turn around but he wouldn't budge!

Visit tnchick to join in the hunt!
