Just a few pics

Yeah, I know, I hardly ever post any more.

I haven't been out shooting in forever.  I seem to be stuck on the idea that if I don't "go somewhere" There isn't anything to take pictures of.

So, I got the camera out and went for a short walk, not really very far.  The following are my favorites.  All have been cropped, photoshopped, etc.

It was a bit damp
bit I loved the shadows cast form the dew
on this spider web

This one reminded me of peas in a pod.

Not a perfect shot by any means,
but I liked the elements in the front.
Wish that bird was in better focus though.

At the last minute, 
this wind sock waved in front of the flower.
Without the flag, I would have tossed this one,
but I like the vibrance added by the flag.

And I just thought the peeling pain was kind of interesting.

Thats it . . .

The Monarchs Have Returned

There really isn't a lot to say here,
I'm just placing these pictures
So I can remember these glorious creatures.

Like always, you can click on any image

(always advised, 
I think bigger is better!)

Disneyland, Christmas 2013

Yeah, I know, I've neglected the blog for way too long (and may continue to do so).

That said, we spent Christmas in Disneyland (2013) and I wanted to place a couple of high res memory shots here, so that's what I'm going to do!

Like always, if you really want to see the detail, each photo should be clicked on and opened in a full sized window so you can see all the detail.  FYI, all these were either taken with my iPhone 5s (love that panorama mode) or my Canon 7D, which I carted all over Disneyland for a full 8 days thanks to my Cotton Carrier.

We had one day of wonderful skies, 
at least for photos
(iPhone 5s panorama).

Not my favorite place to eat, 
but I love the decor

Christmas in New Orleans Square

Christmas Lights in Cars Land,

Kind of noisy, but I love the lines

Sleeping Beauty Castle, 
all decked out for Christmas

California Adventure is growing on me.

We were over at the Hotel at just the right time

Small World was the most magical of sights

But the Castle was pretty impressive too!

It was a delightful time.
As always
