Photo Dump

“Nothing happens when you sit at home. I always make it a point to carry a
camera with me at all times...I just shoot at what interests me at that moment.”
- Elliott Erwitt -

When I started noticing details and paying close attention to my surroundings, I discovered just how much beauty and awesomeness and joy is around me every minute of every day. Life is full of these simple yet extraordinary moments that I freeze whenever I press the shutter button on my camera...that I never leave home without.

Here are some of those frozen moments...

"Make sure you get my good side."

I don't think this is being used anymore.

Yes, I see you. The ears give you away.

Parked

Cloudy days without wind are ideal for reflections.

Horsing around.

Making friends along country roads.

A tranquil moment by the water.

All tied up.

My daughter's cat, Daeny, bug-eyed.

Make it a great day, everyone!
