Different Angle

image

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!

Good Week with a PR

The past week has been great in terms of spending Memorial Day with good people and getting a lot of physical activity in.

Despite some knee swelling, I earned myself a PR that wasn’t expected.  Overall, I’m happy with the results. 

May go for a long tomorrow.

Dusky Beauty

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.  😉

Ah, My Weakness

Every now and then I MUST have this combo!  Such a vice is sometimes needed.  🙂

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.
