One Weekend, Two Shots (Sept 11 & 12)

Ashleigh had a car accident yesterday evening. She's lucky to be alive. The photo says a lot about the damage that has decreased my trade-in money even more than the age/condition of the vehicle. She's lucky to be alive. Her dad hasn't seen it yet and he won't for a couple of weeks, as he's on vacation. I took photos and sent them to him. This one shows how the car door no longer seals with the roof.  The full impact isn't seen in this view. Just wait til her father gets home... Did I say she's lucky to be alive?

One a happier note, I've been working in the Krafti Korner. I won't reveal the total project, just an element.  And leave the other elements as a surprise for some of you who will see the end result in just a short 18 days at the Texas Scrap Retreat!

One Weekend, Two Shots (Sept 4 & 5)

Labor Day weekend was busy with shopping for the new office bathroom. I should have photos of ALL the rugs I looked at and returned. Who knew buying a bathroom rug was such a challenge?!  I didn't even think about toting the camera with me.  The weekend slipped by quickly, as I had to work the holiday. It was nice being one of two on the whole floor.

Over the weekend, I came across the most unusual bromeliad with stiking colors in the bloom. Seems like this is my summer of flowers and foliage pictures.

Our front yard is finally looking good this summer. We had major damage a few years ago from a spring storm and our huge trees were old & rotting.  They were both taken down two years ago and we redid the front. This year I waited to prune the hedges along the house and DH was afraid I'd killed them.  Well here's proof that I didn't.  They look healthy to me!

One Weekend, Two Shots (Aug 28 & 29)

I cheated. These were taken while Elena was here from Greece.  Let's pretend they were taken this last weekend.  The point is to actually use the camera and take two shots.  Doesn't matter when, right?  Well, I got more than two shots on this outing and decided these were the best from a photographer's point of view.

We spent the morning in Fort Worth at the Stockyards and played until the heat was unbearable. Riding the mechanical bull was a highlight for both the girls and they really enjoyed the Maze. 

I loved the signs!  Seems the folks in the wild, wild west had a sense of humor.  This first sign was posted inside the maze.  

The second was hanging on an antique display case in the museum.  I'd love to see this hanging outside the office of a psychiatrist...

Hope you enjoyed them as much as I (photograhy skills aside.)
