Winter Snow

Yesterday, we were hit with a sort of blizzard. But, like most winters here, they never last. School was delayed for the kids this morning due to the icy roads. Just before noon, most the snow and ice had melted.

Teddy gets excited when she sees snow. She only comes inside after she’s had her fun. Oh, and also because she knows there’s a treat waiting for her.

 

October Colors

Took these earlier this month and just really love the colors.  It had rained during the night, and as always, the rain makes everything more vibrant.

Our Keeshond, Teddy, will be turning 4 years old on the 31st of this month.  Each year, I love her more and more.  She is great company and so sweet and kind.

February 2015 Random Photos

I had fun this month with the camera.  Enjoy these…

The family Keeshond, Teddy.  She is the sweetest dog ever.  She follows me everywhere and just plops down by my feet and sleeps.  With husband, she’s a little different.  She’ll wag her tail, jump on him, and want to play with him.  Another thing about her, she won’t eat unless we’re eating.

My daughter stepped in to help me with the 52 Week Photo Challenge I’m keeping up with.  This one called for long exposure so I set the D90 with the 50mm lens to the highest F-stop possible, which was 36, and the ISO to the lowest at L1.KY022120150006_800 KY022120150008_800 KY022120150012_800

It’s Like She Knows

Teddy, the family Keeshond seems to know more than we think she does.  Even though she’s never made a trip to visit my dad, grandma, and sister at the hospital, it’s as though she knows something’s up.

This week has been hard.

September Random

Where did September go?  4 days left.  Or, as I said to my youngest, OMW.  Oh My Wow.

This month’s random is minimal.  How strange that since I’ve started using my iPhone to take most my photos, and with the recent new Project Life App to simply life documenting even more, I haven’t used my DSLR much.  I think another part of it is that my youngest is not such a baby anymore and won’t stand still very long for photos.  And, my eldest takes her own selfies now.  Will I completely stop taking photos with the DSLR in a year or so?  Scary thought…and I had been wanting to upgrade to a full frame.

Here’s this month’s random.
