Dual Cameras

Today’s photos are contributed by hubby and me.  We went downtown to do some shooting and came across something pretty interesting.  There’s a replica of the Garden of Gethsemane in a park, however it’s undergoing reconstruction.  The sculptor, Felix Lucero, is now dead but I imagine when they were new, they were spectacular.  We were…

Something’s Fishy

While visiting my Mom today, I took a few shots of the aquarium in their lobby.  I don’t know what kind of fish these are, but they seemed to not be afraid of me photographing them.  Namaste’

Stacked Floral

Today’s picture is another bloom of the Peruvian Cereus.  Yes, it bloomed again last night but just didn’t have the punch that it did a couple of years ago.  However, I managed to get a capture before it closed up.  I’m featuring this particular rendition for sale on my gallery site.  Namaste’

God’s Gift

Look at the gorgeous sunset God gave us tonight.  While hubby and I were shopping, I looked out the window and saw this, ran outside and got this shot.  There was a lady standing there admiring it, too. What a gift from God to be able to see this and capture it.  No post-processing ……

Just Cuteness

I parked next to a car today that had the cutest dog ever.  She looked at me and I looked at her … love, love, love.  Who could resist that face?  She didn’t bark; just looked at me with those soulful eyes.  Namaste’

For the Bones

Today’s photo is of one of my green tea boxes (obviously).  I really like green tea and probably don’t drink enough of it.  It has so many “good for you” properties.  So as a reminder, here’s some info on that which was surprising to me about osteoporosis … You Can Fight Chronic Illnesses a Cup…

By the Morning Light

Today’s photo is of a Peruvian Cereus in our back yard that blooms only at night.  I’ve been watching the pods form over the past week in hopes that at least one would produce a flower.  Before the serious freeze we had a couple of years ago, this particular plant bloomed 37 times in one…

Lone Sentinel

Today while out and about I spied this lone saguaro.  It seemed to say “take my picture” so I did.  I added a couple of special effects.  Might make this one into a greeting card.  Enough said.  Namaste’

Meet My New Friend

Hello!  Meet my new friend … Weechy.  It’s not often I make a new friend but lo! and behold, there she was in all her icky glory when we went to Home Depot.  She’s actually a life-size version, selling for $99.00.  Wow!  I love Halloween decorations but I think I’ll stick to those paper bats…

Mountain Top

No, I didn’t scale this mountain, which is part of the Santa Catalina range.  As you can see, it’s a lot of rock but I thought the shot came out good because of the light.  I did zoom in to get as close as I could without losing focus.  No tripod; I was in the…

The Pine Cone

WS found this pine cone in our back yard not too long ago.  I just now decided to photograph it. One would think that there aren’t pine trees in southern AZ but there are … at a higher elevation than where we live.  So how did this pine cone end up in our yard?  (We…

Horsehair Angel

I bought this horse hair angel several years ago in Tombstone, AZ.  My friends and I were doing the tourist thing and we spotted this beautiful piece.  The horse hair is from the mane and tail of horses that are being groomed.  The hair falls out naturally and is collected to be fired into the…
