Reflecting upon my most resent laborious day just a short 4 1/2 months ago! My beautiful 3rd child made her appearance on April 15th, 2011.

This week's challenge.

Looks like I've fallen behind and I'm starting to think I will probably really start slacking now that I will be back at work. :/

Anyway, this week the topic is computer. From nature to technology. Snap a shot of a computer for this week. Hope I can catch up!

Flower power

Finally, saw some pretty flowers today.

Week 4

Cucumber blossoms from my mom's garden.


I'm late but I'm still submitting!

Week 5: Fruiti Tutti

Ok, I know we are slowly losing participants but for those who are still involved; Keep up the good work! Time for a new object to focus on this week and it will be out first food! This week it's time to take some tasty photos of fruit! This time of the year there are some colorful fruits to choose from so have fun playing with colors.

I found a few photos from Flickr that I thought were pretty inspiring and those of you that use Flickr know that you can't always right click and "save as" so I went ahead and took screenshots which will also give credit to each photographer. 

Have a great week!

Week 4: Flowers

Last minute, night shot...whoops!

Our family decided to go to CALM today on a last minute thought;) I was soooo happy that we did:) There aren't many flowers, but there was this ONE. Also, apparently today was "Family Day" and they had Bounce Houses, Food Vendors, Face Painting, train rides, petting zoo, and a toddler entertainment class. Soooo fun. Katie made friends with a goat named middleton and Kassidy befriended a turtle named R2.

Sorry Im a couple weeks behind! My window is from the Palazzo hotel in

Week 4: Flower

Roses are red.
Violets are blue.
Week 4 is waiting
for you!

Time to stop and smell the roses this week. Our new assignment is to photograph flowers. Maybe a close up of your favorite flower or an entire field of flowers. Maybe you want to use it as a prop while you photograph your loved ones or favorite book. Here are a few older flower photos I have to get you thinking about your weekly shot.

Week 3-Through the Window

While roaming around downtown today looking for an inspiring window I found two that interested me. This was the last window I found and I liked the fear I felt while photographing it. I felt like I could have possibly been in a horror movie where some scary villain could have eerily walked up to the window with some creepy weapon. Luckily this didn't happen. :)

We actually started our window search at my mother's old office across from Dagney's. I find it off that the lines in the window pane look like they are bent. Another eerie find from tonight. 

**Anyone notice that I accidentally put "Week 2" haha. This month has just flown by.

Lots of Windows

Posting 2 since I totally forgot to post last week :-/

Week 3: Window

Can you guess where I'm at and what building this is? Good luck:)

Week 3: Windows

My boy staring longingly out the window...wishing he was outside! El Cordova Hotel in Coronado, CA.

Week 3: Window

Week 3: Window

Happy Weekend Ladies and Gent!!!! The photo FUN this week is to shoot a WiNdOw!!! How fun is that going to be? I just love looking at old and new buildings and love windows:) (maybe you even have a love for Windows XP?) Who knows? Who wouldn't love windows...they bring in the amazing light that helps make our pics look awesome:) I LOVE opening all the windows in my house and my hubby hates that I'm letting in all of the heat, hahaha:) We seem to find a compromise though...I have attached some window pics to get your creative juices flowing...I know that I need all the help I can get;)

Week 2: Cup

2 weeks down:)

Week 2: Cup Vase

Greetings from Coronado Island


Week 2: Une tasse

I remembered a photo I took sometime in college (so possibly 8 years ago.. wow) in which this cup was pouring out all of my jewelry on my bathroom floor. I remember really loving how that photo came out and it was the start of my love for photography. Here is my modern day version using the same thrift store tea cup that now has a missing handle. :)

On another note, those of you who like to take photos with your phones, go for it. I was close to posting one from my phone because I honestly didn't know if I'd be able to find the time to import and upload this week SO I even felt the desire to "cheat" and submit from my phone. We're busy people so snap your photos however you'd like. :)
