Day 648 post 3 Drive to Work

I have long wanted to photograph the old white wood fence in the bottom picture, but have always fallen short. I'm happy with this morning image. The top picture is a random frame taken while driving to work. I'm sure I'll remember which place it is when I drive by again.

Day 648 post 2 Working Shed

I have always wanted a picture of this shed. I love the way it's aluminum glows in the morning sun.

Day 648 Poor Dog, actually two of them

I noticed this dog tied up in a desolate area while on my way to work yesterday. I wished I had my camera. She was still there when I left work and I almost stopped to see if she was abandoned but kept going because I thought she might belong to someone working near by. I did bring my camera to work today as I planed on taking her picture if she was still there. She was. So was a larger male pit bull, a pretty blue boy, with a more pleasing personality. It's nice to see they were not abandoned but I am sure they have a rough life.

Day 647 Bell Pepper

Sometime during the late summer my husband and I visited a local nursery. We bought a couple of tomato plants, a couple of green pepper plants and quite a few varieties of chili pepper plants. After planting we were very proud of our fledgling garden. The next day our puppy Smoky dug it all up. I managed to salvage a couple of pepper plants and one tomato plant. We figured we would not get any vegetables from our efforts, but this morning I noticed five peppers growing on one of the plants, and plucked this one which seemed ready. I don't know what kind of pepper it is, but we grew it ourselves. No pesticides. Ready to eat or cook or dice and slice or photograph. After cutting it open... It is a Bell Pepper!

Day 646 Dairy

I actually took this picture Thursday morning. If I was keeping up on this blog it would have been posted then, but considering I am not actively taking a picture a day, it gets posted today, Sunday, three days late.

Day 644 Flowers

A few days ago my husband brought home a large vase of flowers for our 18th anniversary. Immediately wanted to photograph the tallest flower in the back of the arrangement. I had some free time and was alone, so today was the day. I took the flower out of the large arrangement and put it in a small orange vase I had underneath our kitchen sink. The top picture was how imagined the picture should be. The bottom is probably the better picture.

Day 641 Fred and Smoky

My favorite subject, Fred in the sprinkler. I was taking Fred's picture when he left both the sprinkler and the ball, Smoky not wasting a second, ran in to lay claim to the ball. So I have his picture too!

Day 636 Sunflower and Praying Mantis

I was playing with my dogs out back and took a look at one of the sunflowers I planted earlier this summer, when I noticed a baby praying mantis sitting on the head of one of them. Of course I had to take it's picture, but the lighting conditions were horrendous! I took a picture also of one of the smaller sunflowers just to get a good look at it. I am surprised to find out that all the ruffly stuff I never really paid attention to, were tiny little flowers in the shape of a five point stars. How cool is that! a hundred tiny flowers in the head of one big flower. I can't wait until the head of the largest sunflower is ready to seed so I can bring it inside to photograph with lights.

Day 635 Disney a Half Moon Conure

I bought great stuff today at a farmers market to photograph, but once I got home I decided to photograph Disney. My favorite portrait of him so far.

Day 633 Arlene and her Cats

Last Sunday I went, for the first time in about two years, for a Sunday morning peregrination photographic exploration. I once again spent time with Arlene and upon coming home told my husband about her and her new litter of kittens. He was up set that they were starving and bought a tray of cat food. We delivered it this morning and I snapped a few pictures while we were there.

Day 632 Chloe

I am trying to start this blog up again. The intent was to photograph one picture a day no matter how bad, and so far I haven't done that. This would be my third day back on if I am going to do this so I didn't want to not post a picture. Today has been so busy I am just now getting a chance to relax. So a picture of one of our cats Chloe.

Day 629 Smoky

Wayne has been bugging me about taking updated pictures of our spoiled puppy. So I took these while Smoky was waiting for the ball to be thrown, in the house. I did say spoiled.

Day 628 Steven Swimming May 2011

Steven wanted me to start up his swimming series again, so one day last week we took some pictures. Now I know I am supposed to post on the day I take a picture but since I am not actually working on the blog anymore I felt it didn't matter.

Day 626 San Joaquin River

Since I am not actually doing this blog anymore I didn't post this the day it was taken, the day after my last post. I didn't think I had a picture I would like. I was wrong.

Day 625 San Joaquin River

Top picture is on my way to work and the bottom is on my way home. They are right across thestreet from each other. The place the bottom picture was taken has been on my blog before but now there is more water.

Day 624 Old Barn Way up on the Hill Hiding

Day 623 Mud and an Old Building

This is why I call myself the worst photographer ever.

Day 622 S.F. Anti-War Protest picture 55

I took this picture of a picture over a week ago and wasn't able to post it before midnight. Since then I haven't taken any pictures. I At this rate I might never get to a year straight with a picture a day. In any case I am taking a break to have my camera repaired and to do a few things that need doing. Hopefully I can get started again soon and go for a year straight.
One note about this picture, it has always been my favorite protest picture.

Day 621 Blue Skies and Blue Water

I wanted to photograph a four leaf clover for Saint Patrick's Day but I couldn't find any. There is a bit of green in a tiny rainbow in one of the blurry light orbs.

Day 619 That Old Place

I drive by this old place often. I'd love to go back there and photograph the old cars they have. However, I know they don't like strangers. Don't ask.

Day 617 Steven

I was walking Smokey when I saw Steven sitting in front of this house. Smokey thinks everyone is his friend so of course Smokey tried to get to him. Steven was allowed me to photograph him and then he pet Smokey.

Day 616 Feathers on Black and Spoons

I wanted to photograph a few of Disney's feathers. I ended up photographing quite a few things. I delete everything I don't post and I'd like to keep the silverware image as I love the sun glare on the corners, so I am posting it as well.

Day 614 Smokey

It was time for another picture of Smokey. He is growing so fast.

Day 613 Woman Walking

I literally had about six minutes to take a picture while my husband was driving us home this evening. He was in the middle lane which made it even more difficult.
