A Study of Texture

I know I haven't been very diligent in posting lately. Life gets so busy so quick! I was sick with the stomach flu for about a week and a half, and really didn't do much of anything. I'm feeling better, but now poor Drew has my sickness! I'm in my last week of my College Algebra class, and I start Statistics next Monday. Work is going good, I'm going to a seminar tonight on management of the diabetic cat! I can't say that it will be the most exciting seminar, but hey, I like to learn about everything. I've also been going to the gym EVERY day, which has been hard, but a positive step for me. My weight loss was slowing down and I needed something to kick it into gear again. As of yesterday, I'm down 37 pounds from October (52 down from 2005), yeah!

Now, on to my photo. This is actually a feather from my feather duster, the fine lines of feathers always intrigued me, so I thought I'd take a photo. Unfortunately I couldn't find a bird to sit still long enough for a close up, so I resorted to using my feather duster as a model. At least it cooperates when you ask it to stay still for a few minutes!

I hope everyone has had a fabulous start to the new year!

Mysterious Tulip?

I'm not sure if I would call it mysterious, but it's on the dark side.....

Up close and personal

To President Jackson on the front of a US $20 bill. I always found the detail in money amazing!

As a side note, I haven't had a chance to stamp or scrap lately. I'm still sick, and I find myself doing small things around the house. I've been feeling the need to organize, so I've started slowly doing so. In the meantime I've been working on the photo a day challenge, and homework, homework, homework! I think I shall be able to stamp some more this weekend.

Refracted Heart

This photo was inspired by Athena from the Canon Digi Photo Forums. She does amazing refracted art work, and I wanted to give it a try, and this is the result of my first attempt. I'm not feeling very well, but had some dogs that I'm pet sitting coming over, so I had to stay awake until they got here. I'm now crawling back in bed ot get a full nights rest. Here's the photo for 3 Jan 07:

Photo A Day Challenge

Well, I joined a photo a day challenge on scrapbook.com, so I'm going to ATTEMPT to take a photo every day in January and get it uploaded to my SB.com gallery. I figured I might as well upload it to my blog too so my readers (do I have any? lol), can keep track of my progress. Most of the photos will probably be macro photos since that is my favorite area of photography (right now anyway), and my macro setup is almost complete! So here is todays photo, Water Drops on a CD:

Ladybird Macro

We had sun today, yay!! Even if it was only for a little while. I took this opportunity to go out with my Macro lens in search of bugs and creepy crawlies. Well, it's far from creepy, but i found a whole pile of ladybirds hanging out on the fence, and this was my favorite shot. It's a bit oversaturated as my calibrate my laptop monitor and I dont' trust the desktop with its harddrive problem to use it for my photos right now. I decided to leave it the way it is because I like the bright and bold colors. They remind me of spring, and that it wont be winter forever.
