We have a cemetery loaded with veterans of the civil war. We have a section that is Union, a section that is Confederate. This one was kind of off by itself, with a low profile. I wonder if there is a reason for that.
It cooled off enough to brave truly exercising this evening. I went with my bike and went almost 10 miles around the lake - I did it in record time for me, but poor time for the crazies passing me like bullets. I did the nine point something miles in just under 50 minutes. I didn't take my camera, but I did have my original iPhone incarnation with the giant 1 mega pixel camera. This is what I got coming around the back stretch. (I said back stretch - Hee Hee!)
Nothing really screamed at me today. I took a picture of a duck that didn't have the top part of his beak. That was kinda gross - I mean have you ever seen an unprotected duck tongue? It is not pretty. I took the kids feeding the ducks - Meh. I liked the sky with the sun behind the cloud, but it still wasn't my favorite.
I've been trying to take this web since the beginning of summer. I've posted the spider before and I can't believe this guys been beside my parent's backdoor the entire summer, but finally, I got my shot.
After arriving at my parents house, my kids and I ran around the backyard. E went to the tomato bed and said "Mom, there's nothing here but sun-dried tomatoes." It was the laugh of the day, it might a well be the photo of the day.
This is my favorite fountain, or water feature at The Dallas Arboretum. Its surrounded by crepe myrtle trees and the blooms, with a little help from the wind, always add color. I could get lost in the spirals.
I figured it was only fair that if I take a picture of one kid, I should force the other to pose too. I'm slightly obsessed with the Lightroom preset I've used here for portraits. ADB_High Key Portrait (B&W) just in case you are interested. I then took out all the fill light to give a little more definition.
Also if you had this in front of you - could you not want it on film. H2 started some eye-drops today. We could have some fun with this phenomenon.
