This is a mural on the wall of a building.  I snapped a shot of it as we drove by awhile back.  The shrubbery and flowers happened to be there, too.

I recently spied this wild carrot begiinning to bloom, 
also known as Queen Anne's Lace...

Last evening the sunset illuminated thunderheads in the distance.  The moon was in view, too, and I didn't have the heart to crop it out of the scene.

Saw a butterfly this morning, one I'd never seen before.  I snapped several shots, finally getting a clear one...

Photos taken this morning.

This photo was taken yesterday.  If it doesn't look quite realistic its because the colors and contrast were edited a bit.


This morning I googled my blog's name.  One of the links that came up was this one leading to a post I wrote way back in the summer of 2007.  It reminded me of the reason I had started blogging in the first place, to have an opportunity to do some writing.  Later on, I discovered the fun and ease of taking digital photos and putting them on the blog.  Obviously, that has taken over.  I guess it doesn't matter---one can put whatever they want on a blog.  Maybe someday I'll decide to write again.

Another chance to take drive-by photos happened the other day.  
I did some adjusting of the temperature, hue, and saturation 
of the colors in this first one...


Dramatic clouds were in view for awhile...


And, this shot received a painting effect just for fun...
