Stormy and Trooper

Yesterday was a beautiful, sunny day. My husband’s horse was out in our front yard eating grass when I noticed the sun was glowing on him just right so grabbing my¬†iPhone out the door I went. Wouldn’t you know just at that moment Stormy decides that the grass is greener on the other side. After explaining to Stormy that I needed to take his picture we went back to the front of the house and I started¬†snapping¬†away. He was okay with it when he figured out what ¬†Iwas doing. Trooper you can see in the background was just wondering what all the fuss was about and he was glad he wasn’t the object of my obsession. Camera+, Snapseed and Tiltshift.

Slide Down My Cellar Door

Rainy day Tuesday! Today I had to be a little creative if I was going to take a picture. Looking out my back window reminded me of a song from my childhood. Say, Say My Playmate and the lyrics went like this:

Say, Say my playmate
Come out and play with me,
and bring your DOLLIES three
climb up my apple tree.

LOOK down my rain barrel,
slide down my cellar door,
and we’ll be jolly friends,
forever more.

It was a sunny day,
she couldn’t come out and play,
with tearful eyes I heard her say,

So sorry playmate,
I cannot play with you,
my dolly’s got the flu,
boo hoo, hoo, hoo, hoo, hoo
Ain’t got no RAIN BARREL,
Ain’t got no cellar door,
But we’ll be jolly friends,
Forever more.

Sunset Siesta Key Florida

I was going through some pictures of mine that I had taken with my Nikon D300 and came across this one from last spring. I went with a friend and we stayed in her condo on the beach for a whole week. It was a memorable time with early morning beach walks and beautiful sunsets like this one every day!
