September 11th - Flower Scene

Sorry about this, but I just had no good shots today. :P Too busy working, then napping, then eating out because I was too tired to cook. Another (fake) watercolor for your (hopefully) viewing pleasure.

September 10th - The Grand Ol' Flag

I took some shots of some pretty orchids today. Unfortunately, they're all blurry. So, here's another random shot I took that isn't all that blurry. It was labor day not too long ago, anyway, right?!

September 9th - Mustache Car

How can I see a car with a mustache and NOT have it be picture of the day?!

September 8th - Porcelain Doll "Painting"

A porcelain doll that was my grandmother's, made to look like a watercolor painting. Making things look like paintings saves me sometimes, because my 2mp cell phone camera doesn't always take good shots, and I am having trouble re-installing the neat image plug-in on my computer and am currently using PS 7!

September 7th - Sony Camera wishes and Panorama dreams...

Here's the best of the lot, today. I was walking through a store (I won't say the name of the store, but if you were to guess the color of their logo being red, I'd say you've hit the bulls-eye!), and stopped to drool over the cameras. I want this one. I've been wanting a point and shoot, and this one is small enough to fit into my pocket. I don't have one that is that small other than my cell phone. This Sony has 14 mp and has a really neat panorama feature where you just sweep across the scene and it puts it all together into a panoramic shot for you. Very wide angled, but very, very neat!

This shot turned out to be a black and white in color, and I wasn't even going for that!

September 6th - Leaves

Here's today's shot, some leaves of a plant at a friend's house. I just liked the way the light was hitting it from the window behind me, although I wish my camera could have done a better job:

Here are a few bonus shots from the fair yesterday:
This one shows the "grown up" ferris wheel at the other end of the fair (circled in red), as taken from the "little kid" ferris wheel, which is the one we rode:

This one shows the golf course that is behind the fairgrounds, and I'm showing this one since there was a comment that our area was so "green" and I wanted to show just how green! I love my peninsula!

This one shows the ferris wheel we rode, from ground level:

And, last but not least, this one is my daughters entry that won first place and got us a VIP parking pass, 4 tickets to the fair, and 12 ride tickets. Plus she won a ribbon, too. :) I removed her name from the label and put in "first place!" Oh, I should specify that she didn't draw the flower, only colored it.

September 5th - Fair from the Air

I went to the fair again, today, and this is a picture I took of it from the top of the ferris wheel. I forgot I don't like heights all that much. I was happy when that ride was over! ;)
