About Me

My photo
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.

My Friday Town Shoot Out...

This weeks theme is Frame it.

This is a frog thats in a frame I took this picture awhile back on the way up to Oregon.
I took this picture in Couer D' alene, Idaho, it's a lake framed by trees.
I just went to visit my oldest Daughter Autumn and her family.

This is my six month old Grandson Elijah.

While I was there I saw a frozen pond outside a restraunt, can you see the roocks on top of the frozen water?

One night it snowed, it all melted away in the morning. This picture was token in my Daughters back yard.

I did find another barn to take a picture of.  Coure D' alene has alot of them.

I  really had a great time just wished I could stayed longer. 
I hope every one has a great week see next time.

This MFTSO is on collections.

I have been collecting black and white things for my kitchen for about 25 years. Then someone gave me a cow and all of a sudden more people gave me cows, then I saw a few I liked and now my kitchen  has a cow theme. I tell people it's to remind me not to become one with my eating habits. But really I do think there cute.
Salt & pepper shaker, toothpick holder and a napkin holder.
The cookie jar.
Glass jars and paper towel holder.
A hot pad.
Coffee cups.
Glass canisters and another hot pad.
The little cow on the stove.
The pictures on the wall my Sister Anita painted.

Although I have a lot more different kinds of farm animals in my kitchen I feel that this really was the biggest collection of any one theme.  I kind have went for the county look,  I like it.

I also have collected a few photos this last weekend.  The Camera club had a Scavenger Hunt on Saturday they gave us ten words we had to go out and find pictures of.  We had to  have and empty memory card to start with.  You had to turn in only those ten pictures on the card with no doctoring from your computer just as is right from the camera. You could take lots of pictures but you had to delete them and choose one for each word at the end. We had to turn them in at 6:00 pm. So JarieLyn and I teemed up together.  We went down to the strip. We park at the Lexor and walk clear down to the Venetian than walk all the way back on the other side going in and out of the Casinos along the way to find  the photos we needed.  It toke us all day. We did stop to have lunch. This is the second time we have done this and both times I a lot of fun.  Maybe sometime the MFTSO will have some kind of theme or game like this to do. I'll suggest it. Anyway here are the ten pictures I turn in that day.

White Flower

 There is a prize for the winner of the best over all, we'll find out who won at the next meeting. If I win I will let you know.

I hope you all have a great weekend. I know I will, I am going to go visit my Daughter In Coure D'alene Idaho. I get to see my newest Grandson again. See you next week.
