Pudding Camera + A Hawk

This morning, while husband was drinking his coffee and looking out the kitchen window, he saw a hawk as it perched on the neighbor’s satellite dish.  He yelled for the family to come look so I grabbed the camera and ran toward the kitchen.

The hawk stayed there for about 2 hours!  Instead of taking Teddy out back to potty, we took her to the front.  We didn’t want the hawk to take off with her, even on a leash.

Pudding Camera Review

Pudding Camera App for Android is my newest love.  I’ve always liked that dreamy glowy look and this app is amazing at creating it.  Below are some examples.  I haven’t used all the different cameras and filters.

Hiking Mt. Bierstadt

Husband has made it a goal to hike all 14ers in Colorado after having hiked Mt. Bierstadt over the weekend with a friend.  That’s a total of 53 mountain peaks.  He wants me to do this with him but I am out of shape and probably won’t make them.  I hope to at least hike up a few easier ones.

Husband used Sports Tracker App to track his hike.  The orange line shows start to finish and the camera icons are where he stopped to take a photo (the photos pop-up with touch on iPhone or Android, or mouse-over on the Sports Tracker website).  Just above the map are his stats.

The goal.  It doesn’t look too bad from this angle but from what husband has said, it’s pretty rigorous.  Btw, that’s husband’s friend in the photo.

This was the top (elevation: 14,060).  There were already others enjoying the view.

When I go on one of these hikes, I’d like to go really early and be at the top to see the sunrise.

Baseball Game, Crepuscular Rays, and Aminated Blinkie [Created in Photoshop]

[Panorama view of the game – click image to view larger]

Last Friday, my sister and her boyfriend invited my husband and I to a baseball game.  It was the Rockies against the Brewers and the Rockies won that evening, 4 to 0.  I really enjoyed the game.

I also enjoyed watching the clouds roll by.  There was thunder and lightning in the clouds but no rain.  It was just a gorgeous view.

Crepuscular Rays

Speaking of clouds, a few weeks ago I took photos of these crepuscular rays while on the road (husband was driving).  It was breathtaking!

Animated Blinkie Created in Photoshop

I learned how to create an animated blinkie in photoshop!  There wasn’t just one tutorial with clear instructions (unless I didn’t search correctly) so I followed a few different instructions, one being a youtube tutorial, and was able to achieve this:

The background paper is from far far hill, the elements are from Siamese Studio, and the font is Selfish from dafont.com.
