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 45 - 2/14/2011

On the way back from lunch, I noticed this beautiful camellia bush.  The blooms were all variatons of pink.  Many of the blossoms were covered with bees.  I took several shots before I captured a photo of a bee in the middle of the flower like I wanted to.

On Monday nights I go to Bible Study Fellowship so by the time I get home and post my POD it's late.  Since it is officially past my bedtime now, I will have to catch up with everyone's posts tomorrow evening. I hope each of you had a wonderful Valentine's Day!  Goodnight!

I decided to zoom in a little closer on the bee, so I added this photo today (2-15-11).


  1. Hey, Cheryl. My computer locked up on me while I was leaving you a note, so I don't know if my other one went through. If it did, just ignore one. ;) Just wanted to say that I love the pop of color in this photo...and the pollen dust on the petal.

  2. ah, i am jealous of you!!! you caught what i have been chasing last week. LOL...nice catch, Cheryl!

  3. This flower is nearly blinding with its bright color!

    What a cool shot with the bee in the middle.

  4. Beautiful! I can't wait for spring to come!
