My bloggy friend Alicia over at New England Girl
and one of her babies "Izzy"
on a walk in their lovely state of Massachusetts!!!
She lovingly refers to it as "The Berkshires"
and I adore it when she does so!!! It just sounds so regal...
See what happens when you're a country girl???

Rest peacefully Aunt Janet...

I apologize for the weak quality, it was with the iPhone -

It was the best that I could manage at the memorial service...

My Aunt lost a short battle (9 days) with cancer - She was comforted with this diagnosis

by her extreme faith and she knew where she was going!!

We love you Aunt Janet

and your family will miss your positivity and love of life.

365*-164 Assignment; E&E "Laughter"

This week's assignment is Emotions and Expressions -
this is about finding people and capturing their emotions or expressions
My daughter & son @ son's graduation from the police academy ~
While I was taking this picture "someone" may have had a bellyache ...
Can't recall what exactly was so funny, but I can just hear my son's laugh!
It is SO infectious...

365*-161 Assignment; Technique-A Day In The Life

This week's assignment was called A Day in the Life Photography.
We were to take a day, an afternoon or an evening...
maybe just an event
and focus on one person/pet/thing.
Follow them around documenting in photos their day.

My subjects for this project were our two cats;
Kitty Baby (aka Caya) & Gargomelle (Kendro).
These two do little more than sleep, eat and watch the day go by
but I found it interesting at how MUCH they do of each of these...
I started out with 30+ shots and narrowed them down...

Enjoy ~
