Thursday, November 12

Not really a fruitful day for 12 of 12. There were a lot of things that I should have been doing, like

Laundry - 9:30 a.m.

Packing for my upcoming trip to Florida - 9:32 a.m.

Instead, I played with zoom/blur - 9:35 a.m.

Basil plant that is the subject of the zoom/blur picture - 9:38 p.m.

Lily running in the leaves - 9:39 a.m.

Muddy floors I had to deal with after the dogs went out this morning - 9:41 a.m.

A trip to Academy to look for some shoes - 1:27 p.m.

Brown-eyed Susans on the side of the road - 3:40 p.m.

Sort of sad roses - 3:54 p.m.

Fall decorations - 4:11 p.m.

Marigolds with a Lightroom preset - 4:12 p.m.

Forgotten picnic tables - 4:13 p.m.

I'm bound to find more interesting things next month.....maybe a Frontier Christmas from Guthrie, Oklahoma. Stay tuned.

Great job again, Sis. I'll have mine posted in the a.m. Boy oh boy, are we having fun here.


sunny is a girl????
i thought he was a guy.
something about the pics said "masculine".
bravo "sunny" for fooling me.
it's alright.
certainly takes nothing away from your pics, nor you, for that matter.
your susans make me miss the ones i dismissed today...
great pics, overall, even your shoppping for shoes looks great...
not fair!!!
see you, "sis", next month!!!!


roses are never sad.
exhausted maybe,
but NEVER sad...
can you tell i love roses, white ones especially.
i was going to tell you about those hybrids i grew for a couple of years that were simply superb, but ccan't remember the name...
yellow with fushia rims...

Hi Sunny, I enjoyed your photos as usual. I really like the zoom and blur shots, both after and before. The fall decorations one is nice as is the one with the marigolds. Thanks for sharing and I look forward to next month.

Lovely as always Sunny. Love catching Lilly at just the right moment for the ear flapping :)

Janelle said...

Sunny, your photos are stunning as always. The roses are lovely. They just need a teaspoon of sugar to lift their heads! I think the best shot this month was the blurred basil. Very cool!

Love the roses . . . so much personality.

Thanks for sharing.

"... more interesting next month"

These are fantastic!
It's interesting how something so mundane can be new and exciting to others, isn't it?

My favorites from this month are Lily and the Brown Eyed Susans. You caught them both perfectly. Thanks for sharing!

You deserve a day off once a month. You got some great photos as usual. Don't know if I'll ever get creative enough to use the zoom/blur. A star filter is about as far as I'll go. I use the 12th as a "no excuses" excuse to make sure I take my camera with me for the full day and just take photos.

I had a pretty good month. I went and took a Kelby class. Hired a really good mechanic. Bought a carbon fiber tripod and head for less then 1/2 price. (They have a sunpak tripod with head on sale right now too ...only 29.99, if you're interested) I bought two for Xmas gifts (might keep one if I really like them better than my Manfroto.) They should be on the way and hear by next week.

Have a great time in Florida. It looks like I won't be down for Christmas as usual. My mom has decided she wants to go on another cruise and take me and my sister. WHo am I to argue? :) She's looking for February over my birthday, so with any luck I'll be sending my February 12 from Castaway Cay.

Should I be jealous of your washing machine? LOL

khowaga said...

I, too, am jealous of the washing machine. And the fall leaves--we don't have so much fall going on down here :(

Nice 12!

Cute pups, and I like the zoom/blur effect on the basil plant - it really works well!
