What I learned about Blue Ghost

Leave the camera at home and just enjoy it, that’s what I learned. 

My shoulder is really sore after scuffling along carrying it in the dark for a few hours. I was after this awesome photo below which I did NOT take.

and after combining 8, 60-second shots, I came away with this. I should’ve done more shorter exposures or videoed. Continue reading

A few stolen hours, a few sights were seen

7-UP barn-sm

I added the wood texture, well, just because I wanted to

This cold I’ve had seems like it will never go away, at least the cough and tired part. Grant you, I’m not coughing enough to try the Fisherman cough drops that were recommended. I’ve stopped the mega Vitamin C doses and seriously doubt I’m still contagious, so I’ll be venturing out in public again. It always bugs me when someone out spreading their various bugs about in places so I tried to stay home and not share. I’ve washed my hands so much they’re dry and itchy, but I think hubby has avoided this catching one.

The making of a pet portrait

I am honored to be trusted to create our friend’s pet portraits. I really think he loves his Rottweilers as much as I love my furbabies.. and that is saying so much.

I even snapped a quick one of their old kitty, Sylvester they inherited when a family member passed. Now to decide if they’d look best on wood, canvas, standouts, metal, acrylic, glass or as framed prints.

Lake Julian, WNC Nature Center followed by Biltmore.

I’m months late in posting, so I’m going with the better late than never idea.

My friend June had checked out Lake Julian and she was game to show me what she found. Looks like a neat place especially if you happen to catch a skull rowing race. I didn’t see anyone on the water but I did hear, then spot a Piliated woodpecker. The railroad trestle is neat too. Although last time June was there they told her it was nice to walk out on it. She didn’t and was grateful when a train when over it while she was still there. Continue reading

Tyler Turns Twelve

Happy birthday bad boy, happy birthday bad boy,
happy birthday to you 

Happy 12th Tyler boy.jpg

Bet you think that’s mean right? Well, Tyler is not a cat who will let you sleep. I decided since it was his birthday I’d try yet again. I haven’t slept in several nights so it was a bad idea. At 5:42AM he started playing the lingerie chest. What do I mean you ask? Well, the drawers have metal handles on a metal backplate, like a door knocker. He gets a hold of them with his paws and lets them drop back against the metal. It’s loud. Might be funny when you’re not trying to sleep. So, my first words to birthday boy in my semi-awake state where NO! Get out! but he’d already woke me enough to start the coughing. Got up. Shut him out. Got a few more hours of not restful sleep then gave him his favorite freeze-dried chicken treats on his breakfast. As I sip my coffee and type this he’s back snoozing away.
