So I was checking in with my reader feed and found an interesting post from Fandango over at This, That, and The Other. It was just a post of the back of his hand, with a challenge to see everyone’s hands. Not shy to raise my hand, I decided to share my slightly puffy hand with you all. Please join in and add the tag #myhand to your post along with a link back to Fandango’s post to be sure we can all be seen. …hey, what else are you going to do on Friday with time to kill?
I have always loved to take pictures… even back in my youth with a 110 camera. I saved money I made on a paper route and babysitting to buy myself a SLR camera. And when I was at my worst depression, talking pictures while walking in nature was a sort of therapy for me. Just call me a shutterbug.
For a while I did a weekly Monochrome Monday picture as I really enjoy the dramatic effect of black and white photography. I take surprisingly few portrait pictures, but the best ones I take are usually the ones not planned. But I do not consider myself too good with them and take better pictures of animals I think.
By far the subject of choice is flowers. Even if I get a bouquet of cut flowers I usually focus in on one or two of the blooms.
My next challenge is saving up and getting a DSLR and lots of memory cards to store pictures on. Say cheese!
A moment of time
A bird never again to take flight
A flower forever in bloom
A smile never to leave your face
A sunset that never turns dark
Just a frozen piece of history
Developed into a work of art
And it all began with a simple shutter’s click

This began as the brain child of Fandango at This, That, And The Other. To make a long story short, he thought it would be nice to see the streets of fellow bloggers. So I eventually remembered and took my camera out on the way to my Dad’s last night. Stopped in the driveway and captured a look into my neighborhood. It is a pretty quiet street for the most part. Lots of apartments in the area and all sort of people… singles, families, college students, couples, etc. Anyway… I am a fan of black and white so here is a monochrome look into my world. (Sorry I was so late with my link Fandango! But I am here at the party now.)
Does anyone else want to share a bit of your world with a picture of your street?
I am finally back. Posting a little late in the day, but I still made it this week. This little guy greeted me on my Dad’s porch a while back, thought I would share him with you. I hope you have a great week!
