The Backstory -

While attending a baby shower, I spent a couple of hours playing baby-shower-games (What's the correct term for a baby bison?), over-indulging in a baby-shower-feast (lots of stuff, but, most notably, cheesy enchiladas and CAKE), and engaging in profound baby-shower-conversation (after all the carbs, my brain was numb. Pretty sure I didn't contribute much).

At about the point where enough baby-talk was too much baby-talk, my trusty Canon leapt into my hand and dragged me, protesting all the way, into the great suburban outdoors.

Blessed quiet.

Bracing fresh air.

Trees!

What's a girl to do?

  5. Thanks, Karen! It wasn't so bad, but the weather was cool and cloudy, and I couldn't wait to get outdoors!

  6. Thanks, Lynette! I only hope they still look "enameled" when printed! I think I'll try having them printed on Kodak Metallic paper.

  13. You just paid a visit to my site so I thought I owed you the same.

    The trees are delightful images. Abstracted but just enough realism left for me. Beauty.
