This is not the best snowflake snap but it's the best I could get and since the snow is all gone now it will have to do. I took about a dozen shots and this was the best of the bunch.
With the macro lens I need to be pretty close to the subject and it was just to cold to sit on the ground so I took a stool out on the porch and then used the camera LCD monitor to try and focus enough to get a shot. I missed a little...... I will give it another try if we get any more snow.....I'm sure we will.

Santa and his reindeer

One of my favorite houses that I pass every morning on my route. I'd love to have these decorations.  Whimsical, colorful, darling!  Love them!

Snap of Jessi Christmas Eve

Someone snap this shot of Jessi in the middle of all the mess of unwrapping gifts Christmas Eve. It was either Brent or Neal and it turned out pretty good. I always forget about the camera in all the havoc.

The week after Christmas

I have no image to post today...not that I don't have any, just that I'm too lazy to process and convert them from raw to jpg.  But, I was browsing some websites and came across a quote that really spoke to me. I, continually, get down on myself when I can't accomplish something.  Like my cooking....I'm not a good cook, just passable, and it bugs me when I'm in the kitchen trying to make a recipe that everyone will ooh and ah over.  And when I'm visualizing a photo and it doesn't turn out, I'm so hard on myself.  When my flowers don't grow, I blame myself...even through mother nature is probably more to blame than I.  So...when I found this quote, it really spoke volumes and made me realize that I don't have to be good at everything.  I can just be proud that I've tried.

"It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all, in which case you fail by default" - JK Rowling

May the year 2011 bring us love, hope and peace. 
And, a winning lottery ticket...LOL

Snaps of Christmas

Just a few of my decorations.......Small hurricane with gold, silver & white ornaments is something new this year that I picked up at The Cobblestone in Waynesville, Ohio. The larger vase and mercury (fake) glass ornaments I've had but added a few more ornaments this year. The stacking snowman I made a long time ago....Maybe 15 years ago and I still love it.

Used Florabella's actions and a texture from Love that shot. The frames are mine.

Hope I can get more shots tomorrow.
