Shadow Shot Sunday #4

I haven't taken any pictures this week, so I was forced to rumage through some old shots to come up with an entry for this Sundays shadow shot.

And, since it is cold and we have snow and I am SOOOOOO ready for warm weather, I decided to post some warm, sunny beach shots.

The first one was taken a few years ago. It is my daughter wading in the water of Fort Walton Beach in 2002. She was 7 then.

The next one is a walkway leading to the water near Hilton Head Island.

A short walk along the cool shadowed pathway leads to the bright sunshine of the beautiful beach.

The swing.......waiting for some one to come sit and soak up the beautiful scenery of the ocean at Tybee Island, Georgia.

This is one of my favorites, it is a Honeymoon shot from St. Augustine, with the sun casting shadows of the gaurd rail on the balcony atop the lighthouse.
Here the sun is shining brightly and casting my reflection in the wet sand of the Tybee Island waters.

All these beach pictures make me want to visit the beach. Hmmmmm........spring break is fast approaching. ; )

Hope you enjoy the pictures and be sure to check out what others have posted over at Hey Harriet!

Shadow Shot

I was sitting in my living room the other night and I looked into the kitchen. What did I see, you ask? Shadows........ So I had to grab my camera and share my findings.

Being a Lighthousegal and lover of lighthouses, I have several of them in my kitchen, on top of my cabinets. The recessed lighting in the kitchen made some neat lighthouse shadows, at least I think so.

The lights were also leaving shadows of the ceiling fan on the wall.

Before joining this meme, I would have seen the shadows, but not really SEEN the shadows.

Anyway, this is my entry for this week. I hope you enjoy it. Don't forget to head over to Hey Harriet (link in my side bar) and check out the other entries.

My New Laptop

I have wanted a laptop for a long long time. Finally I have one. I love it. My desk top computer is sooooooo old (like 10 years old) so I have wanted an updated one forever. It is so cool to be able to sit on the couch and be online and play my games and such.
I now have a Dell Vostro. It is promoted as a small business computer and I will be using it for business oriented things too. It will make it very easy to work from home. A big plus.
I think the weather is supposed to be rainy for the next few days so I don't have to feel guilty for staying in the house and playing on the computer. That is if I can get the laptop before Lindsey gets it. So hopefully I will be able to post more often in the upcoming days. Yay!!!

Manic Monday- - Clouds

It is now Monday and the start of another week, hopefully one that doesn't include ice.

The Manic Monday topic is "Clouds". I have had a very hard time deciding which picture I wanted to post for this topic. I love watching clouds. Storm clouds to me are amazing. Seeing clouds from an airplane was the most awesome thing I've ever seen. I have taken pictures of the clouds sooooooo many times, I couldn't possibly count them all. So I decided to post a few of my favorites. I hope you enjoy them. And, of course, if you want to see what others have posted about the topic of clouds, then browse on over to the Manic Monday site.....the link is in my sidebar.
