  • Altered Photo – Purple Mountain’s Majesty

    Ok, so it isn’t exactly a mountain, but I loved the way this color altered landscape photo taken at Fort Ancient in Washington Township, Ohio turned out. I’ve been really into photography lately, and especially editing and altering photos to look different. This is one of my faves so far.

  • Artsy Photography – Spiders, Leaves, and Frogs

    Yesterday my husband and I went for a walk in the park and I took a couple “artsy” photos. First, we have this black and white spider picture: Then we have this picture of a leaf against a log that is very autumn-like for the summer: Someone on Facebook was nice enough to add a […]

  • Snake Whisperers

    We saw a couple more snakes while out walking yesterday. These critters seem to always be drawn to us! Do you like snakes? The babies or small ones are my favorites.

  • Trip to Hocking Hills

    I didn’t write for a few days because my husband and I went on a mini vacation to the Hocking Hills area of Ohio. It is beautiful country with tons of state parks, nature preserves, hiking trails, caves, etc. We also had some fun looking up haunted places in the area (I’m always hoping to […]

    My husband and I had a great time on my birthday trip, although I am exhausted and extremely sore now! It will probably take at least a week for me to recuperate physically, but it was worth it! Here are a few of my favorite photos from the trip:  

  • Wordless Wednesday – Catching Lightning

  • Lucid Dream Last Night

    Every once in a while I have a dream where I realize in the middle of it that I am dreaming and I have the ability to take the dream over and do whatever I want to do. Last night this happened again. I became aware that I was dreaming and that nothing I saw […]

  • An Attempt at Artsy Nature Photography

    Yesterday my husband and I went for a short walk at a local garden/park. We saw our first snake of the year: I also tried to take some artsy nature photos: I found a perfect crow feather that I put aside to pick up on my way back out of the park, but someone stole […]
