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...

Our subject for this week is... Churches or places of Prayer.

13th century church in Ireland

Same church different angle

These were all taken in Ireland,  I love the ruins of old churches.

I also was able to meet one of my fellow bloggers this last Friday, Doreen from Illinois. Her blog is "My Reflections as I Shutter along."  It was so fun meeting her, she's very nice, JarieLyn brought her in to where I work at Applebees as a bartender and they took a short road trip to Red Rocks afterward. I had to say at work, bummer.  She took the picture of me and I took them off her blog. I'm naughty I know. JarieLyn's Blog is Write Place! Write Chick! Just in case you were wondering or want to check out their blogs.  See ya next time!

My Friday Town Shoot Out...

This is a scavenger hunt for circles square and triangles. Straight out of the camera .  Were only supposed to have one picture of each shape and I had the hardest time finding  subjects that I liked, I looked all week and I only found one that I liked and it was a combination of all three shapes.
I hope you see all three shapes like I do. This is straight out of the camera no editing. 

But I like to break the rules some times and so you can see what a little editing can do 
I know I should play by the rules but it's so fun not to.
Any way I went back into my archives of pictures searching for the shapes and found another picture that had all three in one .
Straight out of the camera no editing. Can you see all three shapes? I can.
Of course I had to show you the edited one. 
  Any way that's all I could find for this hunt.  

Have a great week see you next time!

My Friday Town Shoot Out... a day late

This weeks theme was on April's fools day so I decided to fool you in to thinking I wasn't going to post. Just fooling around and a day later here is my post. We got to choose from are are favorite past themes.
I chose the weird or diffident things in you town, it really is a fun place to see the unusual.
It's not in every town in the United States that you can walk down town and see people dressed up and collecting money for entertaining you.

They guys are drinking out of these guitars, there plastic and hollow and filled with alcohol.

It's a place for fantasy,  fun and entertainment

A place where you can see stuff like the Eiffel Tower at Paris Hotel also it's great architecture all around  down town.

Great water falls and exhibits.

Even a taste of Rome at the Caesars Palace.

Inside the Bellagio Hotel there is an in door garden they change every one and a while, right now the theme is the Chinese year of the rabbit.

This is made of canoes.

There are some very unusual Sculptures at town center.

These flowers are made with real chocolate.
This is also a lady made of Chocolate.
Of course theres a lot more to see but I have to show another time,
 that's about all have for right now. Have a great week see you next time.
