You Capture::Technology

It’s been a really long time since I’ve done a You Capture. I really need to get back into it. I miss it! And I need to have some fun with my camera again. I’ve got this new camera, and I’m not experimenting as much as I should. I’m just so EXHAUSTED […]

You Capture::Red

This should have been an easy assignment. We are red people around here. We have a red wall in our living room. We have tons of red clothing seeing as we’re Badger fans. But I’ve taken pictures of a lot of that stuff before.

I figured I’d show off my latest sewing […]

You Capture::Happy

There is happy all over the place. My boys; my hubby; sun glinting off freshly fallen snow; a weekend spent with girlfriends, staying up late talking, eating way too much, watching random movies; Words With Friends… I could go on and on.

Today, I was extremely happy to be sitting at Starbucks, […]

You Capture::Circles

My new-to-me (read: refurbished) Nikon D90 finally arrived last Saturday! I haven’t had a ton of chances to play with it yet. But during the limited amount of time we’ve spent together, it’s very clear that it’s a match made in heaven! I’m so loving having auto-focus on my 50mm 1.8! I keep forgetting it’s […]

You Capture: Orange

This is the best time of year to have this theme for our weekly challenge! I’m sure that’s what Beth was thinking!

(This one was taken last week Sunday, before Beth gave us this challenge, but I had to include it!)

I’m sure there will be a […]

You Capture: Faces

Wow! It’s a little dusty around here! I’ll brush off this site and try to keep up a bit more with what’s been going on in our lives.

It’s easy to start with this week’s You Capture assignment which is “Faces.” Considering I take a ton of pictures of faces around here, […]

You Capture: Flowers

At this time of year in southeastern Wisconsin, the flowers are dwindling. But I found some that are hanging on, hanging on for dear life, to the wonderful summer that is now past, hoping to be able to stick around for some of fall, which is now upon us.

My mom has […]

You Capture: Signs

I could have gotten all creative with this one. I could have taken shots of signs we see everywhere, shooting from different angles, processing with all different styles. I could have taken shots of “signs”, or things that are foreshadowing, but that would have been kind of deep.

Instead, I went with […]

You Capture: Mornings

I’m a bit of a morning person. Okay, not just a bit. I’m a full-fledged morning person. I’m also an optimist for the most part, and somewhat of a cheerleader at work with my patients. It’s kind of, ahem, disgusting.

Anyhoo, my mornings usually start with a view of the first bits […]

You Capture: Play

We do a lot of playing around here. All sorts of playing.

Playing cut-throat Scrabble games (that are much more difficult when you have very few vowels!)

Playing cut-throat Battleship games (under a shelter in the pouring rain!)

Playing t-ball games (with […]
