"If there is a sin against life, it consists perhaps not so much in despairing of life as in hoping for another life and in eluding the implacable grandeur of this life."

Angel Spots

I think there is a book out about how those little spots in your photos are really angels or something like that...sounds a lot better than dirty spots on the camera lens. lol

Sorry for the blurriness but the photo was taken at 5:40AM and I had been up since 4AM and it is Ana's first solo flight across the country and I am her Mom. That should explain the burriness. haha This morning Ana headed out for 7 days of fun in Seattle! Break a leg, I take that back. Don't break a leg...just have a great time!!

Time Flies

Amazingly, it's been a year since I started this photoblog. A year full of joy and sorrow, highs and lows and lots of pictures! What an experience it has been to try and capture my little corner of the world for you and to share a bit of my photographing the people, places and things I hold dear! I have so enjoyed viewing my fellow bloggers photography and can honestly say I know each of you better because of it.

I intend to continue photoblogging for a while yet but wanted to stop and say THANKS! to all who have commented or visited my little corner of the world this past year.
