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!

Hummingbird Feeder
Last year, mother and I got her a hummingbird feeder.  I had no idea when the hummingbirds came around, but someone told me that they put nectur in their feeder and the hummingbirds were swarming all around the feeder and enjoying the nectur they had put out.

Well, I thought I should clean up mother's feeder and put it out.  I don't know whether or not I have the feeder in a good place, but it's out their with plenty of nectur in it.   I always think of mother when I place the feeder out there.  I wish she were here to enjoy it.  I miss you mother and wish you were here with me to enjoy seeing the birds!


  1. such a cute feeder...the hummingbird will never get lost with this because of its delightful color!

  2. I love this picture, Cheryl, and the story behind it. Maybe you'll be able to bring some photos to share with your mother, once the hummingbirds come.

  3. I really like this picture, Cheryl! It is so colorful!
