Summer Nights

Just a fun evening, following a fun day. No matter what I originally plan to shoot, I always end up with my favorite subject.

My Happy Place

 I read an article today where people were commenting on the geese in their area and how much they hated them because they were dirty pests who left messes in their path. I've always had a strange fascination with geese. It's hard to explain why, but they make me giggle. I have way to many pictures of them and have probably featured them on here more than once.

Life has been extra hard lately and I've missed taking/posting pictures. I decided that tonight, I'd post this because I simply love to giggle at geese. I hope to get out with my camera this weekend.

Big Dam Bridge

This is the biking & pedestrian bridge between Little Rock & North Little Rock. I'm really fighting the urge to talk about the Big Dam Headache I have right now, so I'll keep it short. I love these flags that are in the middle of the bridge.

Bella Swan

Forgive the title, I've been re-reading the Twilight series. I went to one of the local lakes to take some pictures  and there were two huge swans there. I'm used to seeing all the geese - which still make me laugh - but the swans were breath taking.

Romancing the Color

Romancing the Stone is one of my daughter's favorite stores in the mall. I love it because before you even walk in, you are met with an array of colors everywhere.

One of the fun things about having a daughter is when she has sleep overs. I love all the giggles - well, until I go to bed. They're not so cute at 3 a.m. ;-)  Luckily I'm a deep sleeper.
My daughter & her friend have always been creative so I actually got to play photographer for them. Within a 2 hour span, they went from Ballerina Barbies to Geishas to Goths and then back to themselves. I think I may have had as much fun as they did!

Midnight in the Garden of Good & Evil

Ok, so it wasn't quite midnight. Actually, it was dusk.

My sister rode along with her boyfriend while he played a few holes of golf on the course that's behind my parent's house. At the 15th hole, he started to tee off and he heard a whistle. He looked around, regained his focus to tee off, and heard it again. It was the typical cat call whistle and they both looked around to figure out who was out there messing with them. After a while, they finally saw it...
There were two parrots, actually, just hanging out in a tree. And yes, of course she called me at my Mom's to tell my daughter to come see them and yes, of course I came rushing in the golf cart, my camera in hand.

The tree was close to a house on the golf course, so they were obviously someone's pets, but it was still pretty cool to see two parrots just hanging out like that. We whistled at them  and they would whistle back. As we enjoyed the unusual sight, we noticed something else...

My guess is that this guy thought he would be eating good that night. Gorgeous, but pure evil. I'm pretty convinced that cats are out to destroy the human race.

Everyone's just chillin'

Just a lazy Saturday afternoon... the men are fishin' and the geese are hanging out. All is right in the world.
