A Boxer and a Tiger Cat.

Our Boxer, Magnolia Sunshine (we call her Maggie) and our Tiger Cat, Ellieboo. They love basking in the warmth of the sun now that the weather has FINALLY turned.

This week started out cold and rainy and ended hot and sunny with some summer-like thunderstorms almost every night this week. I took these shots of our Cleveland Pear trees as their blossoms were opening early in the week.

All the rain we've been having this month has kept the river, streams and creeks well-fed. My husband took me for a jeep ride into the forest. It was a beautiful day with the sun shining through the trees. The perfect day to practice with my camera. Here are a few SOOC (straight-out-of-camera) shots.

I was practicing different shutter speeds in the pic above and below. Freezing and catching motion. 

Across the dirt road, down a little embankment, I noticed this little shack. 
I wonder what it was built for....

It's a beautiful day here in PA! I am headed out for a bike ride. 
Have a Happy Day!!

Swinging into Spring: Pacific Blue.

I had a difficult time finding something to match this week's color. Then, suddenly the temperature warmed up, the rain stopped and it was sunny. I realized the girls' swings were a pretty close match. As I made my way out in my flip-flops (yay!), I quickly realized I should have worn my rainboots instead. After "unsticking" my flippies from the mud a few too many times, I ended up with this pic. :D

Head on over to Project 64 and check out some of the other submissions for Pacific Blue.
