cemetery in the fog

I know this isn't very festive, this cemetery really spoke to me.
I was there last week and the fog was just so beautiful.

I haven't had much time for any photography other than school stuff with the kids lately.
I miss being out in nature with my camera.
Hoping I can get to it soon.
The weather here has been clear and sunny.
Not very December-like.
Not complaining, though!

Happy Holidays!

HaLloWeEn PaRtY

Darkness has fallen, the moon is up.
The candles are aglow.

My spellbook is open.
My potions are right.
And the wind is ready to blow!

With whipping wind and witch's light,
I am ready to go!

Happy Halloween!!

I loved the dew on this wish flower, as my daughter calls them.
What is your wish?

Welcome to a Mad Tea Party!

"Welcome to my tea party!" he said.

She knew there was something different about him.
He was no ordinary Hatter!

But a cup of tea sounded lovely so she decided to join him!

Something wasn't quite right...

How could she refuse such lovely treats...

and the sweetest tea she had ever tasted!

After a bite of a sweet cake that said "Eat Me"
the Hatter suddenly

could not stop laughing!

He had to lay down for a bit.

Even the flowers were sweeter than any she had smelled before!

And she simply could not get enough of this tea!

The Hatter insisted she taste every morsel.

And after a while they both started to get sleepy.

When she awoke from her nap she was in a different dress!
She thought for a moment that it was all a dream...

But everything was in its place.

It was a magical tea party... that she knew!

So she had a cup of tea with her new friend, the Mad Hatter!

If only this day could last forever!

Please visit A Fanciful Twist for more Mad Tea Party fun!
Preferably with a cup of tea!

The kids and I were on our morning walk around the neighborhood and my son stopped
to take a photo of this flower.  After he took his photo I asked for the camera and
snapped my own.  He has an eye for pretty pictures.
And he loves to use my camera.  I am more than happy to oblige him.
Taking photos brings me a sense of peace and meditation that I see in him when he has the
camera in hand.  And we all need more peace in our lives, don't we?!

This is a first look at some of my favorite photos.
I have a bazillion photos to share.
This is my place to explore and share my amateur love of photography.
