Scenic Black and White Photo Contest

This was (of course) taken at the Grand Canyon on our last visit there. I particularly loved this family (mom, dad and son) sitting on this huge rock way out there just taking in all the beauty that the Canyon offers. I just loved that they were brave enough to take their young son our there and let him experience such an event. I love this photo. :)

Photography Contest | Paper

This week's challenge is Paper at I Heart Faces. So I searched and found this preciousness of a little boy (my Grandson) with his party hat and a face full of frosting from his cake. Although this photo is now a little over a year old it still remains a favorite of mine and still hangs on Grandma's fridge.

Married in Vegas

In less that one month my husband and I will celebrate our 7th Anniversary. The very best man on this planet is my honey. He is thoughtful, caring, compassionate, sweet beyond belief, very loving and handsome to boot.

We are one of those couples that "Got Married in Vegas". It was not our first marriages and the opportunity arose that we were going to California to visit the new grandbaby and "voila".....Chapel of the Bells here we come. FYI...Chapel of the Bells is were Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos got married. Yup!!! Famous couples get married there....like us!! :)

I tell him all the time that I loved that day. It was just the two of us, very private, very personal moment in our lives. I tell him all the time that I want to do that day all over again. He has made me happier than I could ever have imagined. He is, and always will be, my Sweetie.

Week 46 - Silhouettes

A silhouette is the image of a person, an object or scene consisting of the outline and a featureless interior, with the silhouetted object usually being black.

This week at I Heart Faces its all about silhouettes. All we have to do is include a person in the photo. I have taken sihouette photos before but I wanted something new. So, I grabbed some props and my very willing (or unwilling..not sure LOL) hubby and we came up with these (thanks to that little nifty device ... the timer) I ran back and forth so many times that I think I will sleep really well tonight!! I let my husband pick his favorite and this is the one he chose. I hope you enjoy.

Photography Contest | Orange

As soon as I saw the theme for this week, I knew that this was the exact photo I wanted to display. This was taken up in Ohio at my brothers home. I love this picture of him.

As is tradition.......

QuinceaƱera (sometimes also called Fiesta QuinceaƱera, or simply quinces) is the celebration of a girl's fifteenth birthday in parts of Latin America and elsewhere in communities of immigrants from Latin America. This birthday is celebrated differently from any other birthday, as it marks the transition from childhood to young womanhood.

I remember having my daughters photos taken at this same park 16 years ago, when she turned 15 and here I am all those years later doing the same for this beautiful young woman.

My Story - Fall

I've lived in Florida all but 6 years of my life and lived in South Florida until 13 years ago that I moved to Central Florida. So, even though I have seen changing of the leaves when I've traveled on vacation, I've never experienced it. The task of capturing beautiful fall images in Florida is a bit more challenging since we don't have the beautiful changes in the leaves. But, I found this one photo that encompasses fall for me this year.

This is my grandson, who fell in love with "Jack" (as he affectionately calls all pumpkins). We visited a pumpkin patch (while the weather was scorching hot) a couple of weeks ago, and captured this image of him, just loving it! I just adore this photo of him.
