Thanksgiving and Photos

Tonight I was going through some photos when I found this one.

This is my grandpa and our two dogs who are all in Heaven now. I know that my grandpa is taking care of our doggies until we can all be together again. I am so Thankful I have this photo of them all looking so happy. It reminds me how important it is to take photos - and lots of them!

What can I say, I love sunsets. These were taken last week. I can't remember which day. I have not done any retouching. Seriously the sky was incredible.

Ever since watching Braveheart I have been fascinated with thistles. I see them on the side of the road and want to take photos of them and pick one. Well I finally did! It is still sitting on the floor in my car waiting for me to press it but I now have a thistle flower of my very own.

Orange Flowers and Rocks

I should know what this flower/weed is but I really have no idea.

I loved this rock. I thought once I got it into my editing program I could figure out some cool lighting or something but really all I did warm saturate the color to bring out the green around it. None of the other effects looked right.

Sego Lily

I was able to capture our lovely state flower early in the morning. I wish there had been fields of this flower but it grew here and there by itself. There still were lots but not "fields" of them.

The Photographer

I didn't think about it at the time and I am not where I can change things right now BUT the previous photo "Dinner" was taken by my 5 year old nephew. I gave him my camera during a wedding "lunch" and that was one of his MANY photos.

See anyone can take an interesting photo with a point and click camera.


Sometimes it starts out with just one...

The Dude

Yep - That's my Dude

Byland Abbey

I am SOOOO excited. While looking up the names of some other abbeys of which I have photos, I FINALLY found the name of of the abbey in one of my all time favorite photos. Byland Abbey. I have wanted to visit again but knew I would never find it, unless I found the name. Well now when I go back to England, I know where to go!

Spring Fields and Mountains

This was taken while riding in the car. I think it might even be through the window. I am so grateful to be so blessed to live in such a beautiful place and that I have the eyes to see it.

The Great Salt Lake

This is my drive home - I get to see the Great Salt Lake every day.

Some days it is gray. Others it is green but most days it is a pretty blue. I had not idea I would love driving home from work so much. Oh yeah, I don't have much traffic either!

Ok I really only photographed the birdie in the tree but there was snow on the ground.

Yesterday we drove home along Bangerter. We decided to take a quick side trip for me to snap a few quick photos.

Black and White

The Dude prefers black and white photos. Sometimes I think he is right on the mark about which ones should be. Like this one.

Old Friends

Teddy... There is a secret I have to admit on this one...The Dude took it!

PinkCherryMama's Bio
i am a stay-at-home mom of 3 beautiful kids. i have the most awesome hubby in the whole world and God has blessed me more than i can express! i love to create pretty much anything and everything!

some random facts about me:

i am a stay at home mom of 3; ages 3, 15 and 16. in my "spare time", i am a youth leader to the teens at our church. our home seams to have a never ending stream of kids coming and going...which we LOVE, but can get exhausting at times!

i love all things vintage! my brain never slows down. i am a never-ending journal keeper and have to keep journals in every room of my house and car, just to keep my ideas from overtaking me! i am hispanic, but i can't eat spicy things and I am an only child...go figure!?!? i collect african violets, vintage furniture, vintage jewelry, vintage buttons, vintage books, vintage bottles and teenagers... my most favorite fairytales are "alice in wonderland" and "peter pan". i love marie antoinette's style...she was so...embellished! i have my cosmetologists license...my hair usually has some shade of pink, blue or purple in it...

i have been creating since i was 4 years old, thanks to my very supportive family and their belief that i am the best at anything and everything i do, even when it is not true :P !

I love to travel and, although, i have not traveled much, i had the awesomely rad opportunity to visit russia---while it was still the USSR....one of the best experiences of my life!

my hobbies include baking, cake decorating, scrapbooking, art journals, book making, jewelry making....oh, let's be honest, if it's creative, i probably do it, have done it or would like to do it!

Icey Blue

I have been waiting to have a day with ice on the trees and a clear blue sky. I was fortunate enough this morning to be able to catch it. These are unedited - no light play or anything, just straight off my camera.

Temple Square at Christmas

I was just looking at my photos and this jumped out at me again. Rick said that even though he is there every single day, he has never looked at "the campus" from this direction. I thought it was really pretty too and wanted to showcase this photo.
