Well, I'm not a professional, by any means. I'm just someone who likes taking pictures, yeah? Before about 18DEC10, I was using my cell-phone to take pictures (3.1 mp). It did a pretty good job; however, for Christmas, I received a Kodak Easy Share which has 12 mp and take much nicer pictures. I'm saving this year, so that next Christmas I can buy myself a much better camera! :) I hope you enjoy my photos.

Late August/Early September

The last month has been kind of crazy. I have barely written a thing.  I've taken few pictures and definitely not one a day as I had planned to do.  I'm starting to wonder if I'm ever going to get around to taking a picture a day for any long period of time!
So, I decided to upload--onto one post--the photos I have taken for the last month or so.  The majority of these were taken in September.
For example, the first photo--a close-up of a thermometer--was taken during the first full week in September when we had that lovely little cold snap which I think was brought to us courtesy of Tropical Storm Lee.
The next three photos are the left-overs from the photos I took on 20AUG11.  I picked what I thought was the best one and posted it, but it was a very hard choice cos they were all really cute.  These were rejected as 'photo of the day' mostly because they were blurry.  As you can see; however, they are adorable shots of Aurora and Pike.  I love the fun they are having.  Each time I look at these photos, I chuckle to myself.  I love the hand gestures and the facial expressions and the almost-ever-present tongues sticking out.  They are wonderful and fun kiddos!  I really enjoy spending time with them!

When I see something I like, I often roll down the driver's side window and snap a shot off just in time to see the light ahead of me turn green.  
Even though I really do not enjoy the humidity that lives here in South East Texas, the same can not be said of the beach.   They have the same conditions but since I'm at the beach, I don't notice the nasty humity as much as I do when I am away from the beach.   It is prolly the color scheme which is reminding me of the beach.  Whatever the case may be--when I saw this building, I wanted to capture it.
These two shots were also taken around the time that Tropical Storm Lee was visiting.  The skies were overcast for several days and the phone poles were bedecked with flags commemorating Labor Day and the 10th anniversary of September 11th.    I loved catching them in movement.  The American flag shouldn't be sitting around doing nothing!  She must move, be active, be vigilant!  

One of my favorite things about South East Texas--for me--are the huge number of trucks hauling hay and timber.   I cannot begin to tell you why they appeal to me, but piles of bark-brown tree trunks and stacks of wheat-colored hay always catch my attention.  I want to watch them 'til they disappear from sight.   Oddly--to me--there is just something beautiful about them.

I LOVE the produce section in a grocery store!  Dunno why, really.  I just do.  There is something about the neatly merchandized, multi-colored rows of fruit and vegetables that make me happy!

 I got to meet my beautiful friend, Rachel, at 3 Guys and a Burger in Baytown one evening after a doctor's appointment in Houston.  We had such fun catching up.  I wish we could spend  more time together since we are so close.  She is WONDERFUL!

This photos turned out this way quite by accident.  I was trying to take a picture of Snow White when Pop reached down to pet her.  His fingers ended up in the picture!
