Weekly Photo Challenge – Muse




the Spring



the Summer



the Fall with a rainbow



the Winter on a below zero night



the fountain ~ at night ~



most recently ~ fishing…


I have many ‘sources’ of inspiration.  There are my children, including my ‘daughter’ (the hairy one), the many forest preserves around where I live, lakes and ponds and anything which may catch my eye.

There is, however, one source ~ one pond ~ in particular – a few steps from my townhouse…

Weekly Photo Challenge – On The Way…

a little winged critter


I came across this little critter while taking Sydnee Pee for a walk.

While Pee was sniffing for a spot to do Pee things, Peyton (who has become obsessed with rods, reels, lures, catch & release) and I were looking for fish…

Weekly Photo Challenge – Enveloped

J & Pee

Jordan loves his sister.

The above photo was taken in January before Jordan returned to school from winter break.  He misses her greatly and I wish – sometimes – I could ship her down state to the University. Picture a big crate with air holes and wrapped in caution tape – “Beware of Deadly Beast”.

Next week (in 7 days – yes, I am counting) he leaves for Los Angeles (in a car, with two other people – girls).  I have been trying to figure out how to squeeze her in a suitcase…

Weekly Photo Challenge – Motion




2012-05-12 15.04.57 cropped

the final leg of the last relay of the last year of middle school….



It was a typical COLD May morning in the NW ‘burbs of Chicago – complete with wind and rain.  As always, the 8th grade boys ran their relays last – and this was the sectional tournament, thus many schools, many teams and many hours spent in the rain, in the wind – in the friggin’ cold.  The young man above is my son and he was coming in hard… I was not certain if I could catch a photo of the wind but I did!!  I wish I had a different camera, other than my i-phone (this photo was shot in 2012), however, it doesn’t really matter.  Peyton loves this picture.  His words were:

“Wow! I am airborne!  Cool shot Mimz!”

Weekly Photo Challenge – Early Bird




an Autumn morning –



As always, I take many photos of the pond beside my townhouse.  There is a reason for this – my daughter (the very hairy, three-legged one with big ears and a tail).  While she is doing her ‘thing’, I am typically staring over yonder and yonder is the pond!  The above photo was taken in the latter part of last fall.  The sun was rising behind me and the moon was setting in front of me.  This particular shot was taken around 6:10am.
