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 40 - 2/9/2011

She thinks my tractor's sexy! . . .

My Sweetie's Tractor

Today was a bad day for taking pictures for me.  Oh, it was gorgeous outside, but it was cool and breezy, and I've been so sick with the crud that I had to be careful getting out in the wind to take pictures.  I did take one or two shots on the way back from a meeting, but I didn't like the way they came out.  I'm trying to get a photo of the cupala on top of the administration building, but so far, I haven't like the angle, or it's been too fuzzy, or something or another. I am going to try to retake those photos with a different angle.

So, I cheated and pulled out one of the photos I took when I visited my sweety up in the country.  He has planted many a garden with this tractor.  In fact, last year we planted a huge garden of purple hull peas.  We worked ourself to death putting up those peas, but that was some good eating!  yummy!!!

  1. This reminds me of that country song by Jason Aldean "Big Green Tractor." I don't know why, but I love that song.

    Great angle!
