My dogs are "DONE"

You know you take too many pictures of the dogs when you get faces like this...

When you tell this one to stay she looks like she wants to bite you and look away at the same time.

But it is all worth it when you get a face like this...

Gravity Still Works

I thought I would try taking some pictures of drops of water again. The first time did not work out very well.

Here is the setup of the second time.

You can see the bucket of water, wrapping paper and light source. I never understood that the pictures are of the water adn the reflected surface behind it. Here is a good example of the pan of water with the reflected surface.


A couple examples of the pictures that came of this setup.





Busy weekend

Trip to the zoo for Winter Wild Things...

Winter Wildland (8 of 8)
One of the paths through the zoo was right through the lion's mouth!

Winter Wildland (4 of 8)
You can just see Will Rogers Shrine under the giraffe neck.

The snow flake the greeted us as we arrived at the zoo. We spent as much time in line as we did walking around the zoo.

And my favorite picture of the night...

I know that it still needs some work but I was just trying to get any shot. It was dark out, kids running all over the place, and the tigers never cooperate. I think that my wife and I are going to get a season pass so we can go look any time this year.

A nieces' Baptism...

Holy Apost-5

Holy Apost-3

Monday morning I was greeted with this mess. You would have thought a raccoon or bear got into our house!
