Foggy morning

Hi! So a month into the new year, I finally picked up my camera. I know, I said I was going to get back on track with my photography and blog, but frankly I’m sick of winter and just can’t seem to get myself out there to shoot any photos!

But today I’m home with a nasty chest cold, and when I woke up I saw it was still foggy outside and it was really pretty. So despite generally feeling like crap, I bundled up and went for a short drive. Probably wasn’t the best thing to do, but I couldn’t resist. I love foggy mornings. 🙂



Buffalo in the mist 🙂


My kiddos :)

I wanted to post some photos of my 2 dogs. I got a few good shots of them, which is really hard to do! And since I found some new Photoshop actions this week, I wanted to try them out. Love them!


Tinker - I can never get her to sit long enough to take a photo!


Maya - added a texture to a photo for the first time in Photoshop too!


Pretty girrrrrrl

Spent a day at the Fort Wayne zoo with my sister this week….here are some of my favorite shots: 

Sleepy lion. On the other side of thick glass.


My favorite - the orangutans

Does this fish have buck teeth?



Jellyfish. I think?

This little guy was cute. Just relaxing on a branch.



Another one of the orangutans. They're entertaining

Random thoughts

“The ground beneath is nothing more than one point of view”

That lyric comes to mind when I look at this picture. (Can you name the song?)

Spring is here, and that means flip-flops. 🙂

And there’s something in the spring air that makes my dogs goofy.

Dont know why she insisted on laying like this for 10 minutes...

Its not quite warm enough yet for her summer haircut.

I hope I’m not boring you with more pictures of my dogs. It needs to get nicer outside so I can get out and take photos of something other than them…

Happy Spring!

Got outside yesterday to enjoy the beautiful weather and noticed the plants that are coming up. I like watching flowers come up in the spring, and since I never remember whats buried there or what color they were, it’s a surprise when they bloom. I got some shots of the lillies and other plants around my house.

 We started a little bit of spring cleaning, and that meant for the dogs too. 🙂 They got new collars and Tinker got her summer haircut. She was showing off her new digs.
