Happy Halloween from Catwoman

I took this last time I was home, She was Catwoman this weekend for Halloween, and she went out again tonight, as a little girl from the 60's with the poodle skirt, I'll post those as soon as Sherry sends some.

Monday Photo Shoot: Get Goofy

Your Monday Photo Shoot: Getting Goofy

Hey, you feeling goofy? If your answer is yes, then you're in luck with the week's Photo Shoot:

Your Monday Photo Shoot: Get a picture of yourself or a loved one making a truly goofy face.
Because why not? We could all use a chuckle. This is not unlike the previous Photo Shoot where I asked folks to show a good cathartic yell; maybe one day we'll collect them in a coffee table book called "Emotional AOL." Yeah, that's it. We'll sell a million!

I know she's going to kill me, or better yet she may try and get even.  But this is my lovely sister Sherry, making one of her many crazy faces, hmm, I think I'll put two on here.  I can't figure out which one is the most goofy!

I loved the way this came out, it reminds me of a character in a  children's book.  Autumn In Wonderland.

Coolness in the Air

There's a coolness in the air.  Winter is right around the corner.  The coolness reminds me of this picture I took of Eli last winter.

Old Family Photograph

I've posted a few pictures of this family before, I saw a copy of this picture from a newspaper years ago.  I looked and looked for a original copy of the picture.  Today one of my wonderful cousin Judy who also does genealogy, made my day and sent it to me.  It's still quite old, I worked on it some, trying to lighten it up some.  I always heard they had just gone to church and their horse and buggy was behind them in the picture.  Apparently though they had gone to the fair and got this picture taken. Wonder if they all fit on the horse and buggy?

My Papa

92 years ago a wonderful man was born, My grandfather, or as we all called him Papa.  He's been on my min a lot today.  I sure have missed him.  But he's up in heaven with my Mema.

Dance at Bougival in Jacksonville

Just so you can get an idea how tall these works of art are.  They are tree level.  I'm tall but I come to their knees.  I'm 6ft4".

Walk Into Art

Renoir - Dance at Bougival REP003 ... Image Loading

This is not a photograph of a painting, it is a photograph of a giant 20 foot statue of art.  I felt like someone from Liliput standing beside them. J Steward Johnson has an exhibit at the Cummer Museum of Art.  With giant works of art of VanGogh, Renoir, and more.  This was one of my favorite's.  This was a two story statue as tall as the tree's, I'll post more picture later that will show the true dimension of these statues.  But it was a awesome feeling that you were a fly so to speak in the painting.

Seems wedding have been on the brain lately.   I was thinking about how pretty Sherry was on her wedding.  I'm still working on her scrapbook of her wedding, hoping to have it done by December.  This one was a few seconds before she said "I Do!"

What an emotional and beautiful time.  I bet it's hard to come down from it after something so wonderful and beautiful, sharing it with all those you love. She really was beeming of love and light.

Coley and Pony


Coley is my first cousin Caia's little boy, isn't he a cutie with the pony.

This is one of my favorite pictures I took of my sister Dena, Eli and Ethan's mom.   I love the leaves in the background.


Anytime I start missing Autumn, Eli, or Ethan, I just pull up these pictures I've taken of them and it makes me feel closer to them.

Late Round Robin Challenge: Secrets

Look at this photograph, what secrets does this family hold.  There are many.  Family secrets, we all have them.  This is my great great grandfather's family.  Should I tell them.  There are many that I've found out being the genealogist.  There are sad stories, happy stories, and secrets.  Lula Payne was my Papa's aunt, he was named after her, so he passed the family secret on to me.   The family secret had to do with guns.  Back in those days most people carried guns.  Guns brought much heartache in those days as it does in the 21st century.  Loss of life due to guns touched everyone in this family.  One lost their life due to guns. Many in this picture took a life because of guns.  Two were accidents, other's were to protect the ones they loved.  The beautiful woman in the top right is my great grandmother Annie, my Papa's mom.  Wasn't she beautiful?  The picture below is of Lula Payne Ennis Giles, cause of death, gun accident.

Beautiful Saturday Morning Shoot

There was a run today for breast cancer, so saw lots of runners, I'll post some of those later. I did a shoot today for one of my co-worker's daughter. I thought they turned out wonderful.  She was a sweet girl, just like her mom.
