Lunar Eclipse

Michael and I took pictures of the moon's eclipse tonight. This is the last one until 2010. Of course these photos are limited by the equipment we have but they're actually not bad considering. It's a neat looking moon and thanks to the bitter cold we're experiencing right now we had a beautifully clear sky in which to see it! When we came inside there was actually ice on my tripod and we were freezing! Our results were well worth the effort though and we had fun!!

The one below (with the tree branches) is my favorite, it was taken by Michael!

A Promise of Spring?

There comes a turning point every winter - when the world suddenly comes to life again and there is knowledge (or maybe just awareness) that spring will come. Even if winter invades again there is a subtle promise that spring will eventually prevail.

We had some interesting skies today after the rain. First ominous looking clouds then fluffy blue ones, and of course the rainbow was somewhere in there too.

The world seemed to magically come back to life - even the air smelled different, fresher and somehow more vibrant. Ice is melting, winter is spirit responds and I feel like a kid again.

Even the dogs seem to have a different sense about them today, they know things have changed too. They know spring isn't too far off.

Peanut Butter Toast with Heart Centers...

Sometimes it's the little things that count. Today is Valentine's Day and this is the breakfast my sweetie made for me this morning. The picture is bad because it was taken with my cell phone with very minimal lighting (there's only so much that can be forgiven by photoshop) but Michael's gesture made my morning special and I figured it was blog worthy, bad photo and all. Simple gestures can go a long way...

Photographer, student, caregiver, lover not mother

Hungry fed lost found barren beautiful

Hopeful hurting struggling succeeding loving longing
