Moon Shot

Random noise...sometimes it's a good thing.  In photography, random noise are the bright pixels that make an image look blurry or grainy.  Most of the time we try to remove the noise.  In this image of an otherwise boring moon, the random noise made stars that add interest.

Front Yard Wonderland!

So, I couldn't think of anywhere to go and shoot...and be able to spend time with my pups.  So, I decided to explore my own front yard and see what I could find.  I think I scared some kids when I stood up from behind a bid rock where I was patiently waiting for a bee to pose just right. :-)

A Rose is a Rose

I wanted to show off these wooden roses I purchased at our local flea market in Colorado Springs.  The lady who makes them gave me one a couple weeks ago for no reason (really nice).  I was really impressed with the look of them and being a photographer thought I could use them as props, so the next week I bought a dozen from her.  She hand makes them from cutting the thin slivers of wood to shaping, dying and assembling them.

Even Winston liked them!!

We Have The Cutest Pets!!

Our rescue pups, Winston and Morgan, made to the top 20 in the KRDO Cutest Pets contest.  Please go to the link, vote for See No Evil and pass it along!!
