visiting priest at Mass this weekend gave a wonderful homily on "remembering"; our loved ones, our Vets, our past.

Waiting for my clematis to bloom. But in the meantime, it makes for a good visual for me to fool around with my camera settings, in this case 1/125, f/4, ISO 400.

365 project day 5/30

My assignment for my class this week is to practice aperture in manual mode. I was not really into it as I am so sick of shooting stuff in my backyard. I would not have even noticed this spider spinning its web if it weren't for my assignment. Lesson learned - open your eyes people, there's a whole bunch of cool stuff going on right outside your back door!

My nephew getting commissioned into the Army. Makes me proud of him and all the other graduates who are willing to serve our country, particularly on this Memorial Day Weekend 2010.

Relaxing on a Newport Dock seems like a distant memory. New it's back to 50's and rainy. That's New England weather for ya!

365 project day 5/12

I love the River that flows through my town. I drive by it, walk my dog around it, tube down it, and take photos of it - The Farmington River.

365 project day 5/11

I don't know what I'm going to do if Book Stores like Borders go out of business. I love going to my local book store to browse the art and photography books if I ever get an hour or so with nothing to do. I guess I'm a dying breed, since these wonderful stores are slowly closing one by one....

My giant hostas have begun to shade my side garden. Easiest plant I ever owned.
