Fun in the Sun

Lots of laughs, waves & sand castles (although not made by us). Another great day. Happy Memorial Day!

The beach is my most favorite place in the world to be. Yesterday, while floating in the ocean, I mentioned that if I only had a bottle of water, everything would be perfect. Thirty minutes later, a lady offered me one. It truly was perfection.

Fly Away

This is a sculpture in the River Market area of Little Rock. It looked neat and I liked the view of the river, but it wasn't until after I downloaded the pictures that I really paid attention to what it was. I think it's pretty neat.

Sometimes (most of the time) my favorite images are accidents. I was taking pictures of the cables on the pedestrian bridge and took this as an afterthought. It turned out to be more interesting than the others.

Phallic Flower

I really like the way this picture turned out and I promise that I didn't realize how phallic it was until I viewed it later. In spite of my 12 year old sense of humor, I find it interesting.

Downtown Little Rock

This isn't exactly our downtown skyline, but these are some of the more significant buildings downtown. I waited until just the right moment to make sure I got the trolley.

Have a ball!

I spent my lunch today taking pictures with a good friend at the River Market. I had heard about the huge beach ball they had and we just happened to catch a few shots when the kids weren't playing with it. I liked how it matched the Riverfest signs on the lamp post.

The Animals of Kenya

Very rarely do I include the photography of others on my blog, but I was so fascinated by these shots, I wanted to share. The photographer hides his camera in a rock, grass & sometimes elephant dung to capture these shots. I encourage you to view them - they're amazing!
(forgive the cut off screen shot, but I wanted to accurately credit the photographer)

The Animals of Kenya: Up Close & Personal

This shot, along with the one of the Wildebeest, is my favorite!

The Natural State

This is one of several flags in the middle of the Big Dam Bridge in Little Rock. It was a nice windy day when I took this, as you can tell from the waving flag. I thought this was appropriate too, since today is voting day for the primaries. I must admit, I didn't vote today.

Between Innings

One afternoon recently, when the weather was gorgeous, I spent a day just driving to all sorts of places taking pictures. On my way home, I passed the ball park and couldn't resist getting some baseball pictures. I have a few other shots of the action, but there's something about this one that I just liked.

Key West

I went through some old pictures tonight and came across this one. This is the view of Key West from the balcony of the Disney cruise we took in 2009. I'm headed to the beach in 15 days and am already starting to get vacation-itis.

Feeding the Ducks

This little guy was having a blast last weekend, throwing whole pieces of bread to feed the geese (yes, I know they're not truly ducks, but that's what he called them). He was reluctant to get too close and I just sat behind him, snapping away. I loved how I captured the bread in midair here. Such a care free day!

I love NY

With the latest scare in Times Square, I've had New York on my mind. One of my favorite memories is Crif Dogs. Before our trip in 2008, I asked a few locals where to get a good hot dog and the answer was a resounding "Crif Dogs in Greenwich Village!"

On a Sunday afternoon, we took a cab and the cabbie kept asking if we were sure we had the right address. I loved the entire neighborhood and the atmosphere. As you can see in the picture, we had to go to the basement, where we found a very small establishment, but it was so "New York". I  couldn't get enough! The hot dog was pretty darn good too.
