5/31/09 - Downtown

We went for a motorcycle ride today and I took this shot in downtown Monticello. It's a really old, very small town.

Hubby and I had a Tiger Encounter today. We got to spend 30 minutes in the nursery with four tiger cubs. It was a wonderful experience.

But then again, he naps every day.

Our youngest son graduated today. I took this shot before the graduates marched in. I like the imperfect organization of the chairs.

5/18/09 - Mobile Bay Redone

Someone mentioned that the Mobile Bay shot on 5/16/09 was too dim and drab, so I decided to tweak it some and repost. Does this look better?

5/17/09 - Minoux

Here's my Minoux again. You can't see it in the photo, but he has his left paw hanging down touching the "snack bucket." He is wanting "snacks" which are actually cat food - they don't know the difference. LOL

Mobile Bay - the ferry that crosses to Dauphin Island, and an oil platform.

5/11/09 - Another Dandelion

The dandelions are almost gone.

5/10/09 - Dandelion Fuzz

When we were little, we called them little parachutes when we blew them off the stem. It was so much fun, and there never seemed to be enough of them around. Now I have a whole field full of them, and you know, I haven't blown even one this year. Guess I'll add them to my "to do" list.

5/9/09 - Maximus (and Minoux)

Doesn't this photos make you want to see what Maximus is looking at?

If you though it was another cat, you're right! He was watching Minoux,
who had to come see what was going on. :)

5/8/09 - Daisies

Today, I played around with some daisy photos and LightRoom 2 presets. I used a LR2 preset called Stellar Guru Green-Gold that I think I found on

5/5/09 - Virtual Photographer

Today, I didn't get around to getting a new photo, so I'm posting a photo from April 2008. I used OptikVerve's Virtual Photographer, a plugin for Photoshop Elements. I used B&W filters called "spooky" and "dramatic." I think the effects looks pretty cool on this photo. Looking at them today, I realize I should have cropped some of the bottom off.

My old time pink roses are finally blooming. They smell soooooo sweet.

5/3/09 - Another from car show

I love the reds and black in the photo, and I love how the dice adds a spark of interest.

5/2/09 - Red

We went to another car show today. I always take a lot of photos, but after a few car shows, they all start to look the same. Today I got one that I like. :)

5/1/09 - Kitchen Kitty

I collect Otagiri kitties for my kitchen, and this is one that is in my kitchen window over the sink. I thought the evening sun shining in on it was pretty.
