shadow shot


ok, I'm postin' this as my first Shadow Shot. will have to find the place to let everyone know, but hey i finally got one.......anyways, it's been a lazy day. it was rainin' this morn and i was lovin' it. i was back in Washington State for a little while enjoyin' the spring rain & refreshin' air. i took Jimmy for his grooming today. oh i was tickled pink. didn't know i could get so excited about his haircut, but i did. brought him home this afternoon and he's all perty now & smellin' good. he was excited to be home because when i pulled in the parkin' lot, he yelped a little with pure joy. Boo missed him today too. she kept whining. i missed him too....so while waitin' 4 him, i went & got some photos printed and enlarged one of them (a fall foliage from a few months ago). loved the enlargement. first time i went for an 8x10. the details were held greatly. so now i'm going to find somewhere i can enlarge it to a 11x16 or bigger. if i haven't told you, my summer project is to enlarge my photos, frame them and make more note kards for the Arts & Crafts show @ church this fall. will need to get sum business kards made too. this is for pure JOY and see if i can sell them. see what people think. the note kards are sellin' @ church. i even donated the remainder i had to the church and will continue to do so. they don't cost much & i'll consider it part of my tithe, especially since i don't have that goin' right now anyways. i'm also goin' to add quotes to sum of my future note kards to see how that works. got the idea from another photographer via my friend Maggie. (long story). anyway, i look forward to the summer fun.
also on the summer fun list are bike road trips. i'm considering one right now to go within a couple weeks. ran into an acquaintenace last night who headed out to the Bike Rally in Red River today. he's doing it in one day-there & back. says it's only a 3-3 1/2 hr ride. so off i'll go SOON. have been wanting to get back up to that place since over 15yrs ago and wanted to ride up there. i was figurin' it to be a much longer ride. so i'm anxious. excited! i'll take my camera. it's a rustic town but sits in the midst of forest green. i'll keep you posted.
in the meantime, i'll ride to Bandelier monday (weather permitting). tomorrow i'm supposed to go on a hike but it's suppose to rain. plus it starts @ 9a.m. and i was just thinkin' it'd be awfully nice to sleep in for once on a sunday. so i'll sleep on it and see what happens when i rise in the morn. i can take that trail later this week. this is the Wildflower Hike. want to go. want to sleep in if i can. my sleep pattern is crazy nowadays. can't sleep or up at an ungodly hour. so i'll see what my sleeps does for me tonite....for now, i'm going 2 chill sum more. will post more zoo photos tomorrow. have a good one!
