Proud to be an American

I don't consider myself especially patriotic, but there's so much about New York City that makes me feel so proud and blessed to be an American - between Ellis Island and the stories of immigrants to the site of the World Trade Center, it makes me see the flag so differently.

Quiet Reverence

I'm in NYC this week and have so many pictures to share, but I couldn't wait to post this one from St. Patrick's. It was such a moving experience - this picture literally speaks to my soul.

I caught the perfect moment with this shot at my daughter's basketball game. The ball almost looks photoshopped in.

Follow the bouncing ball

I was feeling a Sixth Sense vibe with this one (red door thing, not dead people), so I used picnik to make a small enhancement.

And for a little animal trivia - did you know sea lions use their whiskers to do this and not their nose?
