Before the Rain

The weather reports all say we’re supposed to have some big rain tonight and tomorrow.  I’m ready.  As far as I’m concerned, we never get enough. This photo was taken in my back yard as the sun started to peek under the early evening clouds. I hope the birds have some place nice and warm and dry when the rains come.

Sometimes the light just plays perfectly for the camera and the subject.  This was one of those times.  Namaste’



Pretty in Green

A simple photo of our new lampshade.  It’s metal and glass and conveniently happens to fit one of our lamps.  I just couldn’t resist.  Namaste’
