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 49 - 2/18/2011

U.S.S. Alabama
Before heading to dinner last weekend Melvin and I stopped along the Causeway to take some pictures of the sunset.  We enjoying eating at Longhorn's in Daphne from time-to-time, and we knew that it would be dark by the time we headed back for home.  That ended up being truer than we knew, since we ended up waiting an hour (much longer than our normal wait) for our table.  Apparently, a lot of people had planned to celebrate Valentine's Day on Saturday or Sunday night, instead of Monday evening.  I took quite a few photos and it was a little difficult to choose between a couple of the pics (sunsets are just beautiful to me).   And since today didn't work out too well for taking pics, I decided to pull from one of my weekend photos.  Thanks for being forgiving!

  1. I had to enlarge this one,just because my late husband would have loved to see this ship.
    Thanks for sharing this picture.

  2. Great detail, and the sky looks beautiful. Nice shot !

  3. I can see why it was a tough decision. They're both great. Love that sky!

  4. Cheryl, this is stunning! The gorgeous colors are a beautiful backdrop behind the ship.
