Finally got the desktop plugged in and and some 250 photos uploaded from the camera. I thought I'd share with you a few of my favorite images from this summer.
I call this one: Still Life with Vegetables.
Every evening, for not quite an hour, the most sublime light comes in my kitchen window. Many times my Dad is there at that hour with dinner--from the garden. I just couldn't resist the temptation to try and capture that light.
This was another image where the light was just perfect and I could only pray that my fumbling skills could give it justice. This rose was planted by my husband's grandmother as a young bride near their farmhouse in Western Pennsylvania. While we were there, Paul's sister took some cuttings of these roses. I hope they grow for her.
Blueberries from my Dad's garden. Oh how they melt in your mouth. The best candy ever.
My Mom's Gladiolas. They almost seem to glow from within.
View from my neighbor's "yard". They live in Florida and, I guess to minimize maintenance, planted their yard in wildflowers. I don't mind. It makes for a better view, in my opinion.
One of our first sunrises in our new house. This is from our porch. I believe I will never tire of this view.
I simply love this shot. One week this summer, our friends Chris and Melissa and their three little girls visited the area and we happily showed them around. They had rented a camper and were staying in a KOA campground in Cherokee. It just so happened there was a traveling carnival in Cherokee that same week and we decided to take all of the girls one night. Owen wanted to ride the airplane ride. Her first real ride. Of course, Paul and Chris & Mel's oldest girl went with her. I snapped a ton of photos. This one was my favorite.
Sadly, summer is nearly over for us. We are back to school mid-August. It's been rather eventful for us, to say the least.
