Tag Archives: just do it

For those that replied to my photo request… thank you!

I got some interesting picks from friends and family out of my photos to help me narrow down my choices.

It was SO HARD to pick just two to submit. And the ones I thought I liked best and thought would be the favorites were not what others chose so it was quite interesting what others preferences were.

Here are the two I submitted.  I am not convinced they were my best, but I liked them.  I got so weary trying to figure it out, I just sort of pointed and clicked and those were it!   I have named them “Celestial Flower” and “Ahhhh-Green”.   🙂   Please click to see them larger.

I’ll share some of the winners with you after all the dust settles. Thanks again!

Ok, you liked my pictures, well hold on to your hat!

OK, starting to have fun with this.  So going to put you through yet another slide show! Hang in there because this slide show is a little long, but there ARE some nice shots in there.

I have not massaged them in Photoshop yet, but there are a few I think I will fiddle with and that have potential as wall art, or at the very least, a screensaver. 🙂

I tend to enjoy textures, light and colors over “birds”, although birds can be exciting to see in the wild. I think you’ll see the definite affiinity I have for landscape or close ups.

TRIP TO TITUSVILLEThe guy and gal in some of the pictures are my most favorite friends, Andrew and Donna.  I was instrumental in “fixing them up” years ago, although the first round fell flat for who knows why. Then, another attempt a year or so later, and vwallah!  They have now been married for at least 4 years I think.  They were my buds when still in Florida but career necessitated a move for them.

So, off they went and moved to Madison, Wisconsin, (brrrrrr) but seem happy there. I miss them terribly and have visited at least 3 times already.

Anyway, the point of  this is that when they came through Florida a few months ago on their way to a cruise departure, I met them on the other coast  of FL for some libation at the beach and then this great little excursion into the gigantic preserve there near Titusville.  We got some great shots that day, but I understand another trip is needed, because the day we were there, duck hunters were scaring away alot of the birds. (well, DUH, I’d stay away if I was a bird, too!)  LOL

Enjoy the slide show and forgive the music, but I thought it kind of fit the mood.  CLICK HERE OR ON THE PICTURE!

A need to rejuvenate… it worked!

Well thought I’d better get up to date since it’s a long time since Christmas!

I felt like I needed a bit rejuvenating today, so off I went with my camera to nearby Honeymoon Island, FL  for a bit of “getting back to nature” and just getting in touch with myself again.  Photos are “as is” — nothing adjusted in photoshop but overall, they don’t look half bad and I certainly enjoyed my 3+ mile wandering on the island.

Honeymoon Island TrekIt was a beautiful breezy day… about 80 degrees.

I got to see (from a distance) a protected bald eagle’s nest, get swooped by and listened to the screeching calls of a multitude of ospreys and extremely surprised by the large rattlesnake crossing the path in front of me… all caught on film!

I hope you’ll enjoy this taste of Florida as much as I did today.

Pictures I captured on a trip to Titusville, FL on the Atlantic coast were much more spectacular. I’ll post a link to those soon.  Thanks for letting me share.

CLICK HERE or on the picture… Enjoy!

OK, well isn’t THIS boring!

Hello out there… anyone there?

Sooo, you think that when you set up your blog, you’re just going to be inspired and overflowing with all kinds of rhetoric, or that’s what I assumed.

HA! So, here sits my blog with NOTHING on it. How sad.

I actually want to have a “real” WordPress blog off MY url but I can’t seem to decide which url of the 50 or so I own should be the “chosen one”.  Talk about being paralyzed!  I keep chastising myself with “haven’t you ever heard of the phrase ‘just do it’?”  So just do something!

I have two other old blogs floating around out there on that “other” free blogging site, so feel free to check them out. They actually aren’t bad reading but I don’t think I plan on expanding them anytime soon.

So, if anyone has any suggestions on how to actually “do” something with my blog or how to move ahead and pick a darn niche or subject, I’m all ears.

Yours in blogging,

I forgot to include links to my old blogs just in case you’d like to visit:
