Happy Birthday Suzana!

Since today is my friend Suzana's birthday, I decided to make it my photo theme of the day!  This is a shot from late Summer 2009 when we were out for a bachelorette party. 

Even though I'm in the shot, I did take it.  I always end up doing the 'hold out the camera to take a picture of myself with someone' and I usually do a decent job getting the subjects in the frame. 

Happy Birthday Suzana!  You rock!

Go go go go now...out of the nest it's time

I always seem to find empty nests.....and I don't mean that awesome 90's sitcom starring Richard Mulligan.  (Seriously, how do I know this?)

Anyway, the nest finding is normally at Christmas time when my family and I go to the tree farm.  The tree we end up getting always has a nest inside of it somewhere.  Probably common, but for us it's always a sign that we've chosen the right tree!  I spotted the nest in this photo underneath a tree in my parents yard on Mother's Day weekend this year.

I'm still baffled that I've just referenced the tv show Empty Nest on a blog entry.  I will actually admit that I could name all of the actors on that show and I'll throw in the fun fact that they are neighbors to the Golden Girls as well.  Who doesn't love a cameo by the late Bea Arthur?

Anyway, the nest..

she's been everybody else's girl. maybe one day she'll be her own.

My all time favorite redhead. You know, besides Carrot Top.  Obviously.
I have a ton more images taken from this show in DC a few years back so I suspect Tori will appear again. I should add that this was taken with a Sony point and shoot camera and I was zoomed out pretty far.  I don't remember my exact seat, but it was the first row of the second section on the center floor.  This was before I got my Nikon, but the point and shoot did me proud that night.

Out of a few hundred shots, this one was one of my favorites....

a photo a day?

I'm toying with ideas on how to be more consistent with my blogging.  My latest idea is to do one image each day.  Let's see how that works out, shall we?
