You Capture - Green

Thursday, September 29

We are going green by making reusable sandwich bags.  I found some cute fabric.

My 7 yo says she is going green by using rocks and string to make dolls.  FYI, rock are too heavy to stay on a stick when adhered using a glue gun.  We are now on a search for lighter heads.  

I found a lot of green leaves on a sunny walk today.

Macro Monday - The Wasp Nest

September 26, 2011

Last week I found part of a wasp nest just lying in the backyard. (To write that sentence I just had to Google "laying vs. lying").  Blogging would be quicker if I only posted photos without explanations.  So, I went to take a picture and discovered  there was a wasp tending it.  I don't know where it came from and the next day I was checking up on it only to find that it had disappeared?   What a mystery!  Glad I remembered to snap a shot before it was gone.

You Capture - Industrial

Thursday, September 22

Yesterday there was an awesome sunrise! 

Normally, I sleep through them but I was up early and I was wishing I had something cool to put in front of such an amazing backdrop.  I hopped in the car, but no luck, it quickly disappeared .   Here's the view of Portland's industrial waterways just a few minutes later.

You Capture - Apples

Sunday, September 18

Ever since I sent my 10 year old to archery camp (at TrackersNW, which she loved) I've had this fear that she would come home and be tempted to shoot her little sister.   Luckily the arrow that she came home with doesn't have an arrowhead and there are strict rules about not even pointing it towards people (except for this photo, don't worry there is no tension on the string).  The girls were very helpful with my photo challenge this week even though we're a few days late.  

And then she ate it.

Macro Monday and back to school

September 12, 2011

Wow, it looks like I took the whole summer off from blogging! The girls are starting their second week of school.  They are both happy with their teachers.  I'm already hearing complaints about homework, no one really missed that over the summer.
