130. - Rigging

Photograph 130

From a long time ago (or at least before I had my new camera, judging from the size) when the Tall Ships came in.

129. - Piano Keys

Photograph 129

Piano keys.

128. - Waves

Photograph 128

At our friend's house again near the beach (very cold in the middle of December). Doesn't it look live it'd be perfect to swim in?

127. - Gingerbread House

Photograph 127

This is the result of giving the little girls a gingerbread house to decorate (the moms do all the work). Compare and contrast with my previous post, if you will.

126. - Chaos (aka my brothers gingerbread house)

Photograph 126

The result of giving my brothers and their friends free reign of gingerbread house decorating.

125. - Bride and Groom

Photograph 125

Yay Beth & Collin! (I hope I spelled his name right).

124. - Let me eat cake!

Photograph 124

My cousin's (once removed? My first cousin? idk... mom's cousin) wedding cake.

123. - More Abstract Art

Photograph 123

More long exposure... Through a tunnel with lights every so often and me waving the camera up and down... interesting effect.

122. - Uh... Traffic, more or less

Photograph 122

On the ride home from Virginia (we did not leave with a high appreciation of their snow-cleaning abilities), I was having fun at night (having read myself mostly to death and not looking forward to using my lamo flashlight) by using my camera's long exposure setting in New York City. This is the abstract-art result.

121. - Rosepetals trampled in the Snow

Photograph 121

More rosepetals in the snow from my mother's cousin's wedding.

120. - Wedding Gown in the Snow

Photograph 120

So, I haven't uploaded photos in like, ten days. But I have good excuses! I was reading! Books... fantasy books! That's a good reason to neglect blogdom, right? Ok, well, in all seriousness, we went to my mom's cousin's wedding this weekend (in two feet of snow). It was actually snowing during her wedding, in Virginia. Did I mention it snowed two feet? We got stuck 2x on the way to the church (but some nice people from the neighborhood with two wheelers helped us get out). They had to move the reception and move up the time of the wedding from 5 to 12, and it was a good thing my aunt the hairdresser was there because the one signed up canceled. But it worked out, and they're married (that's the important thing). Anyways, this is a photo of the Bride's train in the snow with rosepetals.

118. - Ice Encased Grass

Photograph 118

An old photo (one or two years ago) of ice encasing grass.

117. - Bee on the Flower

Photograph 117

This is a photo I took a LONG time ago.

116. - Orchid...

Photograph 116

This is the sort of flower I could have a nightmare about. It looks like something from a dark "Alice in Wonderland".

115. - Red Mushroom

Photograph 115

As perhaps you might have guessed, this is an older photo. From a mushroom photographing excursion back in our woods sometime this summer... or spring. I'm not altogether sure.

114. - Streetlight

Photograph 114

This is an attempt at photographing a streetlight in the snow (under an umbrella) with long exposure. None of my attempts seemed particularly worthy of blogdom, but then I messed with this one in iphoto... heaven knows what I did, but mom thought it looked cool so here it is!
Here's the original:

113. - Ice

Photograph 113

Sorry I've neglected updating photos for so long. Here is a photo of God's natural abstract art. It's from one of those times when the top of a puddle freezes but the rest of the water drains away and then makes interesting patterns.

112. - Gathering Corn

Photograph 112

A couple years ago I had a job working packing corn in the mornings (early mornings). It made for nice photo opportunities. Here's a blog post I wrote about it:

111. - Icy Berries

Photograph 111

I think I took this one with my old crappy camera, so sorry if it's not as good as it could be. I still like the photo.

110. - Sanibel Island Lighthouse

Photograph 110

Down in Florida, Sanibel Island (I think).

109. - Boy, Fisherman, Seagull

Photograph 109

Last year for my birthday my dad drove me around to take photos of things.

108. - Egret

Photograph 108

From our trip to Florida; these birds let us walk up right next to them.

107. - Web and Horse

Photograph 107

This is another old photo, it's near our house where there's a horse barn. This was a hole in the fence I took a photo through; the blurry silouette in the background is actually a horse.

Here it is also in B&W, I couldn't decide which version I liked better.

106. - Seagull

Photograph 106

I've decided to dig up some old photos that I've taken, this is from March 2008, when we visited our grandparents in Florida.

105. - Gravestone

Photograph 105

We visited the nursing home this afternoon and in the woods nearby there is an old gravesite.

104. - Seagulls in the Surf

Photograph 104

Seagulls at the beach during sunset... on Nov. 30. I can't imagine how they deal with the cold.

103. - Beach Fence

Photograph 103

See explaination photo 102... this was one of the few not looking into the sunrise that came out well.

102. - Sunset at the Beach

Photograph 102

We visited some friends last night who live near the beach, so we all walked down together and walked along the shore at sunset. It was beautiful, but a bit to dark to take photos in any direction except towards the sunset, which was kind of disappointing. I did manage to get a couple that weren't too blurry, though.

101. - Sunset over the Pond

100. - Geese Flying South

99. - Hoop

Photograph 99

Today, some friends came over for Thanksgiving, so we walked down to the Park and played Basketball... well, they did. I just took photos... I can't play. :)

98. - Raven in a Dead Tree

Photograph 98

Another raven from Bryce Canyon... see photo #24.

97. - Sunrise on Dead Trees

Photograph 97

These are near the Grand Canyon. Dad and I walked out to see the sunrise.

96. - Coyote in the Parking lot

Photograph 96

This coyote ran up to our car in the Mesa Verde parking lot (where we had turned over to take photos of four bucks). I guess people feed the wild animals and, since there are no hunters allowed, they are very tame.

95. - Look up

Photograph 95

This is looking up in the Narrows (Zion). Either that or it's looking up in Bryce. But I think it's the Narrows.

74. - Children on 4th of July

Photograph 74

Here's the same cute children from photo 49.

94. - Hoodoos

Photograph 94

Sorry I forgot to update for a few days, I'll do them all now. Here's a view from inside the hoodoos at Bryce National Canyon looking up.

92. - Butte

Photograph 92

Driving towards the CO mountains to go back home... on this section of our trip we saw some really weird landscapes; it looked a bit like photos of the moon. Some places looked like this but without grass... just grey dust.

91. - Burned Trees

Photograph 91

We saw lots of forests like these on our vacation, it was really interesting, the extent of them was amazing...  miles of burnt tree husks. I guess some Native Americans set controlled forest fires on purpose to clear land... I think I also read that it helped the enviornment.

90. - Sunset, Grand Canyon

Photograph 90

This is looking away from the sunset, the rocks were all colored pink. I don't particularly like this photo of it... but then, what can do it justice?

89. - Starfish

Photograph 89

From Beavertail, same near lighthouse in one of the first few photos.

87. - Guitar

Photograph 87

No, I can't play the guitar, I just like taking pictures of it.

86. - Parakeet on a Painting

Photograph 86

Another photo of my mom's friend's parakeet... Photograph #2.

85. - Can you see the Road?

Photograph 85

I don't remember where this was on our wanderings....

84. - Dog in the Doorway

Photograph 84

This is a dog at a Hippy restaurant we went to in CO. They had buffalo burgers, and burgers made from their own cows. You could tell the locals hung out there; there were two horse trailers with horsies in them out front. There was a shop across from the restaurant and the dog was over there. When we went over there, there was another dog, maybe a stray, and this dog chased off the other one.

83. - "Petroglyphs"

Photograph 83

These were some painted "petroglyphs" in one of the Indian roadside stands driving toward Monument Valley.
