Day One Hundred and Fifty One

May 31, 2010

I got this shot while at Gloria’s for a cook out.  I love getting pictures of bumble bees.  They look so fuzzy and soft.  Since getting a macro lens, I have found a new love for bugs.  I don’t care for bugs at all unless I am trying to get a picture of them.

Day One Hundred and Fifty

I found this cute little mushroom in Gail’s yard and wanted to get a picture of the underside of it.  Mushrooms are so fun to find and photograph and I am still on the hunt for more colorful mushrooms for my photography collection.

Day One Hundred and Forty Nine

Natalie and I saw Sex and the City 2 and then enjoyed dinner at Chammps.  We ordered what I think is the most fabulous drink ever created:

Rock Star Martini

SKYY Infusions Raspberry Vodka, DeKuyper Sour Apple Pucker, Monin Very Blueberry, fresh sour and Sprite in a martini glass rimmed with Pop Rocks.  YUM!

Day One Hundred and Forty Eight

May 28, 2010

Adam was trying to show Alexander how to blow the puffs off of a dandelion and it was too cute to not take a picture.  It is a lot of fun to watch Adam and Alexander spend time together and share a bond that only a father and son can.

Day One Hundred and Forty Seven

Natalie informed me that she had a peony bush in her front yard and seeing how those are my absolute favorite flower ever, I had to go over after work to get some pictures.  The shrub had two blooming flowers on it and they were so pretty.  I think I want to plant one in our yard for next spring.

Day One Hundred and Forty Six

Alexander LOVES popcicles and I got a set of plastic holders so we could make some at home with flavored syrup.  It even has a little straw on the side to slurp up the drippings.  Brilliant!

Day One Hundred and Forty Five

May 25, 2010

At work today we had a new diesel tank installed and it was interesting to watch the technician move the tank from the truck to the ground.  He wore a belt that had the controls on it and it was like playing a real life video game.  Up, down, left, right, repeat.

Day One Hundred and Forty Four

May 24, 2010

I found this little guy on this flower while trying to get a close up of just the flower.  I was pretty excited that I got him in focus.  But I also noticed he was a red ant and after getting the picture, I quickly moved from the spot I was standing in.

Day One Hundred and Forty Three

May 23, 2010

This is probably one of my favorite pictures ever.  I just love the colors and how the flower is curled up into itself.  I have a friend who comes to mind whenever I look at it.  Something about the colors just makes me think of her and makes me smile.  We have become good friends over the last year and I love getting to chat with her every day.

Day One Hundred and Forty Two

While walking around downtown Annapolis, I cam upon a store that put out a water bowl and a treat bowl for any dogs that may come by.  A lot of people were out walking with their dogs and I just found this to be so cute.
