You guys! What a weekend! Am I right? How’d yours go? I ended up with a big ‘ol fat lump on my forehead and an equally impressive bruise on my shin.  But on a brighter note, the Autumn decorations are put away, I created and painted, I hiked, napped, played with the camera and the […]

Good morning! I hope you’re having a good week – we’re getting ready to head out of town to go camping for Thanksgiving weekend.  It’s colder this year than last, and we have a puppy this time around, so things should be interesting/exciting! I took our niece to The Scottsdale Princess recently to go ice […]

Happy Wednesday!  How’s your week going so far? Things cooled down here quite a bit in the last week, and as far as I can tell, it’s winter most everywhere in the US now.  Here is a chilly picture from a visit to Colorado in 2012.  I adjusted the white balance and cropped the photo […]

So if you follow my Instagram feed, you’ve seen this photo before.  But if you don’t (and really, why don’t you?!?), then this is new for you.  I took this photo with my iPhone, edited it in Snapseed for cropping and popping the silhouette a bit.  Other than that though, this is literally what the […]

Here is the last of my pictures from Oktoberfest a couple weeks ago.  I really like the lights and colors and thrill of carnival rides, but I’m still perfecting my style and skill at capturing them.  These were taken just before sunset and I cropped them, adjusted the exposure a tad and that’s about it. […]

So while we were at the Tempe Oktoberfest this last weekend, I grabbed a random shot that caught my eye.  It’s probably not Pinterest-worthy or anything fantastic, really.  But I loved the colors, and I thought, that’s what Wandering Eye Wednesday is all about, right? I only cropped it, but there wasn’t any real editing […]

Hey there! I’m writing this on my lunch hour since my weekend pretty much rocked while simultaneously rocking my to-do list. Wine and cheese night with lovely ladies, Tempe Oktoberfest and Sunday family football day catapulted me into straight-up autumn awesomeness.  The weather was just lovely, and I mean that with absolutely no sarcasmn whatsoever.  […]
