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 190 - July 9, 2011

My mother with a new hairdo
This morning I went to visit mother.  Although they have a hair salon at Allen Memorial, the hairdresser has not been able to fix mother's hair to our satisfaction.  So, I went Saturday morning and did my best to fix her hair myself.  I had done it some when she lived with me and no one could get her to the hair salon.  Her new hairdo put a smile on her face.  It was nice to see her smile again (especially after I had made her mad not 15 minutes earlier  lol)

Later that afternoon, my neighbor Liz asked me if I wanted to ride down to Dauphin Island with her.  We sat on the beach, grabbed a little sun and watched the waves roll in.  Sitting by the water, especially once the crowd has died down, is so peaceful!

Me - relaxing on the beach

  1. Seems you had a greta day and i totally agree, sitting by the water is really peaceful, preferably on ones own

  2. Ah, looks like a really great day. I so missed this kind of days - just sitting along the beach, dig sand and watch the sunset.
