Different Angle

On Memorial Day, I spent the day at the National Mall remembering all the fallen and taking pictures. 

Here is a pic I snapped of the Washington Monument.  I wanted to capture it at an irregular angle.  After applying some filters, I was pleased with the result above.

Storm Gems

I’m not sure if I’ve shared this before, but I’m a storm lover, fanatic, stalker, etc.  When a storm is brewing, I feel compelled to snap as many good shots as possible before the gates open! 

They intrigue me with their raw beauty and power.  When I was a wee lass, they used to frighten me a bit, but excitement was mixed with that fear because I wanted to understand them.  As an adult, I equally understand and respect them. 

The photos below are what I captured last week after a major storm had dumped torrential rain on the area.  It was the tail end of it, yet the beauty was stunning!

Taking pictures of the sky is a minor hobby of mine, so you can imagine how happy I was to see this beautiful display of hues in the sky yesterday evening.

It took three tries to get what I felt was the perfect shot. 

I Love Food. Period.

Celebrating my birthday always involves eating, drinking, and doing whatever comes to mind. 

Since I love eating sushi, calamari, and drinking sake, I imbibed and enjoyed some delicious Japanese cuisine.  The fish eggs made a great addition.

The rest of the festivities will continue tomorrow with a run and beer reward.  😉

Progress!

Still working on this and I have to say I like how it is coming along.

Time Really Does Fly!

Just yesterday this little guy was born! 

Not really, but that is how it feels to me.  At 8.5 months old, he stands on his own for up to a minute and sometimes takes a couple steps when he feels very energetic.

We enjoy watching him develop and grow.  This picture shows how much he has grown since birth and has become my favorite capture of him to date. 

Did I mention his messy “feeding myself” sessions are as hilarious as his sister’s were?  🙂

First Tooth

It finally happened…Cory cut his first tooth and he’s been handling it like a little trooper!  I’m a very proud mommy.
