Birds, Birds, Birds

It was COLD today, but I had to go outside and take some pictures in the snow and sunshine anyway. The birds were so hungry they didn’t mind me taking their picture. I got several nice “flying bird” pictures this time.

Snow and Ice

Today it snowed some off and on and was a rather cold and dreary day. However, there was one point when it was snowing more heavily and I just had to grab my camera and head out. The first photos are manual focus with the background purposefully out of focus and the snowflakes in focus. Then I thought I’d check out the icicles on the lower barn, and found them melting fast. I love trying to capture drops, and there were lots to get both in focus and out of focus.

Week 1 — Vision: Look Ahead

THEME: “New year. New beginnings. New you. Look ahead. Interpret as you wish.”

This week I was busy traveling with Mom, but also trying to think on this theme. On our drive around Lake Okeechobee on January 1, I saw this little tree starting to grow out of this old dock post and thought that fit the theme. This little tree is struggling to make a new beginning in a pretty harsh spot! I’m not comparing this with me in any way, it just seemed to fit the theme!

“Bloom where you are planted”

Dogwood Photography Weekly Photo Challenge

I read on Facebook about this neat photography challenge where you photo a different “theme” each week and share them with a group for discussion and constructive criticism. This sounded like a great idea to me, and I was getting all ready for it by logging into my Flickr account . . . where I saw that I had done this same challenge in 2017 for only about 3 weeks! Yikes! Let’s see if I can go a little longer this year!

Go . . . .

At the Beach!

Mom and I finally made it to the beach after the last day of the trial ended. It was a lovely, sunny day for a walk on the beach!

Day Four of the First Trial!

The last day of the trial Dolly just ran two events, and she qualified in both earning a PACH QQ and fourth and second place.

Mom, Dolly, and her ribbons

QQ, 4th place, and 2nd place

We had been admiring a very fast chihuahua named Rory during the trial. Since we moved Dolly down to the preferred height, they didn’t directly compete. We had a chance to visit with his owner at the end of the day. Of course we had to get photos of these two very cute dogs together. We hope some of Rory’s skill rubs off on Dolly! He’s a multi-champion!

Dolly meeting Rory

Cute couple!
