12 Hours

I did another 12-hour photo project today. One photo every hour for 12 hours.

4/52 Straight out of the camera


I took this last night as I put Lexi to bed in case I didn't get a chance to get a better shot today. She got her shots today and hasn't felt well since, so this will do for this week.

I'm not sure if Alexis is teething yet, but she looooves to chomp on Sophie la Girafe.

I took a couple of photos of my kitties the other day and thought I'd share.





Both of these photos are straight out of the camera (SOOC) with no post-processing.

I was just going through my old posts and saw that on my Photo A Day Project in November, I forgot to post the shot for Day 24! Blogger will not let me go back and add the post where it should be, so I'm adding it right now.

Here is a photo of my sleepy baby, taken on November 24, 2009.

This weekend brought Middle, TN a bit of snow. Now, we don't get much snow here at all so a couple of inches is a big deal!

Here is Stella on the back porch.

We bundled up Lexi and took her out to experience her first snow.

She was not to impressed by it.


Lexi and I.

Lexi and Eric.


After Eric took Lexi back inside to warm up, I stayed out and tried to take some snowflake shots.

This was the best of the bunch and I really like how it turned out.

Delurk, if you please


Apparently it's National Delurking Week. I really have no idea how many people actually read my blog and it would be nice to find out.

So if you stop by, leave a comment and say Hi!
