- In the eye of the beholder
- I have a great Interest in Photography, I love reading and learning, I enjoy many different ways of expressing my talents in art. I Like culinary food art, carving fruit and vegetables and catering parties. I like drawing and water coloring as well. Other activities I enjoy are dancing, golfing, racquetball and bowling. However, my favorite things to do is travel, eating out and taking pictures along the way. I am a member of the Nevada camera club. It is one of the best ways of learning Photography because you get to learn will doing. I learn so much from the other members, their classes and field trips. What pushes me the most is their competitions. I am currently learning photo shop on my computer, That might take me a few years though.

I was at a store this week with my little camera and decided to take pictures of the shoes I want to try on for the FSO. Then I came home and played with the images in photoshop. I just got photo shop and have been trying to learn how to use it, it's not easy but it's fun.

This might be a little strange but, I really think I have baby fever. What I mean by that is, I look at any babies including baby animals and I just want to hold them. I think it's the Mother in me. Missing my own grown Children, I'm going through the empty nest syndrome. Not only that, I've got a Grand Child I hardly get to see and one on the way who will live even further than the first.

This is the bench that sits out in front of my yard. I got it twenty years ago for Mothers day. I lived in Oregon at the time and it has traveled to Colorado and Nevada where it sits now. If it could talk it could tell you lots of stories of my Children growing up and all the guests who came to visit us along the way. My life has been very interesting but to here it come from the prospect of this bench would be really amazing. I have refinish it twice and as you can see it needs it again, but it's still sturdy and I have no plans on getting ride of it any to soon. It has way to much sentimental value.

This is a photo of Jarielyn and I, we like to play golf with are Husbands. That's how we started hanging out, maybe going out to dinner once in awhile with them. Our men work at the same Company. We had a great rapport right away, we have a lot similar interests, Around November 2009, She ask me If I'd like to join Nevada camera club with her. I did and It has been one of the greatest opportunities I have experienced. For a lot of reasons, It's has took me on a journey of learning and experiencing things I honestly only dreamed some day I would achieve. At a whole lot faster pace then I thought possible. I have met such wonderful people, that are willing to help and explain things in away I could understand, with lots of patience. Of course I still have so much to learn, at times it's overwhelming. Just the terms and descriptions in Photography are pretty intimidating. Learning all the tools you need to know and have is an on going process. But I have to say It's been a great deal of fun along the way, especially sharing the experience with Jarielyn. She has inspired me to new heights beyond some of my own expections. And now I just what to learn, see and do more. Whats great is through this blog you'll get to experience it with me. At this time I just want to express to you that I have one of the most wonderful friends a person can ask for. Thank you for being my friend Jarielyn, your awesome!
