Dracula's House

At least that's what this mausoleum looked like to me. There are some gorgeous cemeteries where I live. A part of me feels a little uneasy taking pictures of the gravestones but not as much with the bigger structures. I think they were made so beautifully so people could appreciate that beauty.

I played with a little texture here.

And then I got really crazy with it.

I wanna give a shot out to the Brodster...aka Moose. My nephew will be turning one tomorrow, Happy Early Birthday. It's been so fun watching you grow! Now that you are one I can officially hold you without worry of breaking you ;)

Still the cutest pouty face e-va!

6 months:

Hungry Eyes.

9 months:

I have not taken the official 1 year pictures yet but I did grab a couple of quick snaps for a card:

He's gonna be a football player, he is.

Now if that doesn't make you want to go out and have another baby I don't know what will!

What Do You See?

Sorry to post the same subject two days in a row but these were too much fun.

Yesterday was all about the pretty simple swirls and today these are when I started seeing things (or inhaled too much incense smoke lol). I posted some of these on facebook and I really love how everyone sees something different.

I really see a dude on horse here but James sees nothing. Am I the only's ok if I am crazy.

A dancer perhaps with her arms outstretched?

This is when I really started playing with the symmetry of the smoke.

Lungs? Kissing fish? A bra?

Blaze saw the butterfly on the outs while I concentrated on an ant outline in the middle.

I loved how playing with the symmetry of it could totally change the whole thing.

You know I can't figure this one out I just like it. From my facebook I got and eagle or hands raising to the heavens. I'll go with those.

Pretty sure this could only be an X.

A heart...until on facebook Jess said mushrooms and I totally see that now!

When I inverted it though it the only thing I could see was a mask/face..I see a lot of faces.

I saw something like seahorses with wings..or maybe Pegasuses? Is that the right plural for Pegasus..oh wait those aren't real?? ;)

Where do all
the secrets live?
they travel in the air
you can smell them
when they burn
they travel

Those who say
the past is not dead, can
stop and smell the smoke
you keep saying
the past is not dead, well,
stop and smell the smoke
you keep on saying
the past is not even past, and
you keep saying

We are...

I had a burst of creativity and energy (how rare lately) and took some pictures of incense smoke. I have been wanting to try this for awhile. It's tricky but so addicting. I see some things I can improve on for sure.

It's calming to actually just watch the smoke burn and then to start seeing the shapes inside of the smoke. In some of them there were very distinct shapes and I started seeing kind of trippy but very cool. These were some of the more pretty and normal looking ones. Tomorrow I will try to share some of the more fun things.

My fave is the last flamey one!

My favorite little redhead, besides myself ;) Doesn't she just remind you of Strawberry Shortcake?

Snapshot Sunday

Someone gets a little crazy before bedtime.

Tuesday, September 1, 2009


We went to the zoo the other day with our friends Nick, Melissa, and their son Mahi. Such a fun time, thanks guys for coming! Sorry there are going to be a lot of pictures in this post (so I tried to make them a bit smaller than normal, which seems to make them look pixely. Oh well)

I will start off with the animals . It seemed like a lot of them were sleeping so I didn't take a ton of pictures.

Is it weird that the gorillas always make me sad? I feel really bad taking their pictures because it seems they have something in their eyes asking for everyone to please just leave them alone and let them be. It feels like such an intrusion.

I love this shot, it is just so sweet the way the hand is under the chin of the baby <3

Elephants, and rhinos, and bears. Oh my!

The zoo proves that I can take snapshots! Well as much as I could with a telephoto lens. It was in and out of sun/clouds all say so it was to hard to try and be perfect. Here are just some of the random snaps from thoughout the day.

The kind of monkeys I don't mind feel bad taking pictures of:
