Thursday - Action day

Well today is action day and I really didn't have much action in my day. I did manage to take a walk along the canal and found a few things.

This is a fountain that sits along the canal.

Here is a picture of the busy city. Everyone always hurrying to get where they need to go.

Here is a nice shot of a flag on top our capital. Today was such a nice day to be outside taking pictures so I am glad we have photo week.

Wednesday - Portrait day

Here is a picture I took of Dale getting his hair cut. I thought the pencil sketch effect would be a nice touch for making it more like a portrait.

This is a classic portrait pose except I took the gang from my younger years. These are my friends Alex and Stewart which came into my life at a very young age. Needless to say they have always been there for me.

This portrait is called "A fishs world". This little guys name is Bastard and he lives in my hairdressers salon. Leave it to him to call him Bastard.

This is a portrait of my hairdresser and I. He dresses pretty fancy don't you think. OK OK this is a picture of Dale and I and no he doesn't cut my hair. I am sure it would be all uneven if he did. But he looks like he knows what he is doing doesn't he.

Tuesday - Macro day

OK so today is macro day which might be my favorite but we will see. It is my favorite because it allows me to be silly and creative. So here are some fun things I chose around my house.

I found this elephant in my backyard just walking around. OK I didn't really find it, a very good friend of mine brought this back from visiting her family in India. I love this hand carved elephant. Just a little trivia if you receive a elephant with a raised trunk it is suppose to bring you luck. So I hope someone gives you a elephant with a raised trunk.

This is a picture of spiderman coming to save the day. Alex (my-step son) has gotten into my photo week and let me take a picture of the spiderman which lives in his room. He said he likes to play with it when he is suppose to be doing homework. I would say I need to watch him on this but he is a straight A student so you just can't do anything.

This one might be a little disturbing but I love goofy. He is by far my favorite Disney character and when I was younger I would always be compared and called goofy. So this little guy hangs from my mirror in my bathroom and greets me every morning when I wake up.

I thought this would be a great picture to take with Halloween right around the corner. Candy corn is always a seasonal favorite.

I had to take this picture because the Boston Red Sox are the all time best team ever.

Photo Week begins

OK so today is the beginning of photo week and I am very excited about it. Monday is Landscape day however today was a very dreary day. So I though maybe I would go through my photos of trips and pick out my favorite ones because you know you always take picture of the landscape when you are on Vacation.

OK so this one was actually taken today because this is my neighborhood. I love entering my neighborhood to see the mature trees arching over the road.

I took this picture a few years ago when I went to visit my brother in Vermont. This is the Quechee Gorge in Quechee VT. Very beautiful to see if you ever get the chance.

This picture was taken on the Killington ski slopes in Vermont. I grew up skiing these slopes every weekend so this picture brings back memories of those times.

OK so I think this looks like a post card however I actually took this picture. This is another picture I took while skiing in Vermont.
