About Me

My photo
I am usually typing on a computer most of the day, but today I am trying my hand at a new project: My 2011 365-Day Photo Journey. I gained a love for photography when I was required to take a fine arts class for college--I chose photography. The course required a lot of work--Professor Loehr saw to that--but it opened my eyes to a new world. It's been many years since I took that class and I don't know how much I actually remember, but following Laura Delagal's 365 Photo Journey and watching my niece's love for taking pictures has peeked my interested in photography again. Although I don't have a professional camera, I did receive a really nice Sony digital (point-and-shoot) camera from my sweetie for Christmas this year. Going through some difficult times in my life, I thought that undertaking my own 365-day photo journey might be a way to relieve a little stress and have some fun with my new toy. Through this journey I will capture some of life's joy and its pain, but I will also be able to refocus the lens of my life on the many wonderful things that God has created. Well, here goes. Wish me luck!

Day 37 - 2/6/2011

Loropetalum (I think this one is the "blush" bush) 
This photo didn't come out as well as I had hoped, but I only ventured out of the house long enough to walk Bridget, take this photo, and then it was back into the house to spend the afternoon in the chair.  I am still feeling under the weather and taking pictures or being on the computer is the last thing on my mind (mainly because of the severe headache that has accompanied the cough and stuffy nose).  Anyway, this is one of my favorite shrubs, especially when it is in full bloom. I have several of the green leafed ones and some of the purple leafed ones.  They bloom at various times of the year filling the yard with lots of beautiful color.


  1. I love the flowers on that bush. So pretty. Sending you wishes of hot tea, a good book, and a cozy blanket until you're well again.

  2. and it's lovely to se some colors and blooms outside!

  3. hope you'll feel better so soon!!! i am under the weather, too! great determination on your behalf to be able to take a photo and post it!
