Twas the sweet ending for the birthday

Two visitors to the coneflower patch

Bee and butterfly; at least I think it’s a butterfly.  No clue as to what kind but if you know please leave the name in the comments and thanks.  After yesterday’s “stinky” post I felt something lighter and brighter would be in order especially since this weekend I will be celebrating my birthday.

I’m going to try and fit some champagne into the weekend somewhere… that’s light, bright and bubbly 🙂

That’s the way life goes sometimes…

I know I’ve been tardy and downright spotty with reading and commenting on your posts and it’s not going to get any better for awhile you see because…  The microwave and washer both gave up the ghost on the same week.  Microwave is fixed (took two weeks) new washer is coming this week.  I have been having some terrible allergy issues and was bit/stung/attacked by some little beastie which has left a very ugly, red and uncomfortable mark on the back of my leg and ankle – sigh.  While changing the ink in my printer I went all fumbled fingers and now the wall behind the printer is polka dotted; time to paint.  I have to get started on a couple of costumes for Dragon Con and I will be going to visit the kids in a few weeks.  There have been so many fun festivals and events (and movies) that have been occurring each weekend that we’ve been busy having fun as you can see from this photo of me and Frankenstein the motorcycle (from a bike and car show we stumbled upon yesterday) while wearing my Spiderman shirt – movie was great!

And then there’s the matter of learning a new camera – phew!  You can see more up to date things if you follow me on Instagram but other than that I will try and pop into the land of blog here as often as I can until things slow down.  Ignore the DH sized shadow at the bottom of the photo; probably should’ve cloned that out  😉

Variety is the food truck of life

Amazing how food trucks and the variety of foods they offer are multiplying.  The difficulty is finding the one you want when you want it.  They have a tendency to move around what with those wheels and all 😉

It’s all about the form

From the looks of these two, I’d say it’s all in the footwork and the wrists.  Photos taken at the Olentangy Summer Blast.

Happy 4th

These photos were taken at the Olentangy Summer Blast, a local high school annual event.  I’ve learned a couple of other things from photographing fireworks at the OSB (see my tip post here)  firework displays are erratic.  You never know how high, low, wide or what shape a blast will be.  It helps to have a vantage point that will allow you to capture the entirety of the exploding rockets if at all possible.  In my case, I had nowhere to back up to in order to get a better spot to capture a wider range of the fireworks without being on someones private property… and they had warning tape stretched across their yard.

Have a happy 4th of July and be considerate of pets and people that don’t take well to fireworks.

Whoa Nelly!

No idea why it was on their shirts but these ladies were making sure that those with a beer ticket got their whistles whetted.
