A Different Picture. Whew!



I know you are tired of looking at a diagram of your large intestines.
So, until I can think of something else to post about,
I hope you look at some of my favorite pictures that I have taken, in no particular order.

Oh, and Russ & RAD, these were taken with my Fuji E900 point & shoot set on "Auto" with no editing whatsoever.
Any pictures where I used the flash or 'macro' setting are duly noted.
Click on any picture to enlarge it.
(Mom, then click the back arrow - very top left - to get back to the post)


Cilantro blossoms on Rosie's cutting board in the fading afternoon light



Some of my flowers (macro)







Some mating june bugs looking out of my picture window. They stayed that way for hours (macro)



The mama fox from my swamp.
I made friends with her, and she would come to within a foot of me while I sat on my front steps.
Of course, I fed her, so that could be why she wasn't afraid.
I also sang to her, and she came back anyway.
She died last year. I miss her.



At the International Tattoo



A field of buttercups in coastal North Carolina



My "happy little" Bob Ross tree (macro & flash)


Macro but no flash



Trees in my front yard



These trees at the beach didn't listen to the weather report saying there was no wind



What can I say? I love these guys (that's mine on the right)



A glassy pond in my father's neighborhood





My father's backyard



Virginia Tech - BS's alma mater






A frozen waterfall on Rt 460, just east of Roanoke

Lllllliterally on Rt 460



The ghost town of Glenrio TX on an abandoned portion of Rt 66 at the Texas/NM border
The sign originally said "First Motel In Texas" on one side and "Last Motel In Texas" on the other



Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado




Desert Sunset




And, last but not least, my profile picture - a random pretty cloud.


Sorry, I think I got carried away,
but certain people who read this are interested in the "Auto" setting on my camera.
I have to defend the honor of my point & shoot.

Nice pics!

I was quite fond of the diagram from your last post. I even printed out copies and had them laminated so I could use them as place mats for casual meals. They look wonderful next to my "mysteries of the inner ear" salt and pepper set.

You goof. I'm sure when they are not on your table, the placemats are stored on your bookshelf next to your favorite cookbooks: "101 Ways To Cook Pancreas", "Liver - It's Not Just For Bile Anymore", and "The Joy of Internal Organs"

Just imagine how great those shots would be if you knew how to use your camera! ;-)
Very nice shots. They are much nicer that your previous post - I don't care what Hairball says.

Here's my response to that: blah blah blah.

But thanks, I was waiting for you to come look at them. I love my Fuji.

Well, not literally waiting.....

I do have "101 Ways To Cook Pancreas" and the "The Joy of Internal Organs", but I prefer my liver raw with some fava beans and a nice Chianti.

That cilantro looks very familiar.

Kathy said...

Rosie, of course it looks familiar. It's sitting on your cutting board.

Hey, Hairball - you forgot the end of that quote - "f-f-f-f-f-f-f-f-f" (I think I got the number of fs right...).

Hey, Rootie - I love point n' shoot, too! I love the desert sunsets, and I can't decide which one I like better, either.

Beautiful photos. We had a fox when we lived in the country in NJ that came right up to us, but since we're city slickers, we ran into the house, not wanting to make friends. Thanks for visiting my blog. You have a very interesting one.
