I've taken on average over a thousand pictures a month since the beginning of the year when I bought my new camera. Of course, many of these pictures have been deleted; ah, the beauty of digital! Some pictures I take with a post in mind, such as the pictures of no-knead bread in various stages to accompany the recipe. Other times I shoot just for the sake of taking pictures, only to find that a post develops from a single picture, or a series of pictures tell a story, like the magic tent.
Then there are other pictures that are just completely random. Pictures that capture a moment or convey a message or just make me laugh. Some of these pictures make their way to flickr, while others stay on my media card, taking up space while I wonder what to do with them. Well, it is time to make room on my media card (after all I've a thousand pictures to take this month), so I've decided to just share some random photos today.
See the smiling face? I really need to wash my windows, but how could I destroy such precious art?
Sorry Jenny, I just couldn't help myself. I had to take a picture of your butt. You have beautiful tail feathers.
My brother-in-law's stogy, which he no doubt finished smoking on his way home.
I know bugs deserve privacy too, but once again, I couldn't help myself.
OK, obviously I have a fascination with the private lives of critters. The other day I was laying on the hammock, minding my own business, when I heard a rustle in the weeds. I called to Avery to bring me my camera, then the kids and I spent several hours watching the lizards conduct their business. Another fine homeschooling moment.
I have a strong feeling my mom has her feet pulled up off the ground after seeing the last picture - sorry Mom! Aren't you glad they aren't snakes?
To all of you who patiently read and thoughtfully commented on my recent posts about being sick and yelling at my poor child, thank you! It hasn't been the best week, but your kind words certainly made it better. I promise more interesting topics in the future, at least until the next time I get sick. Have a wonderful weekend friends!
