We were lucky enough to get our grand daughter for a couple of days while my son and his wife were traveling. She is the most perfect little angel we have ever laid our eyes on.
She is just like her grandma and aunt….she loves puppies.
Having her spend time with my dad filled my heart with joy.
Family. There is nothing better than that.
As we turned around the curve…
I could see cars pulled over and in Alaska this is code for “something cool is over here.”
There were two little herds of caribou out and about.
It was a beautiful day. The sun was casting this glow all over. It was gorgeous.
This week I decided to explore my bamboo plant. I love this plant and haven’t really taken any pictures of it so it was the perfect subject for me this week. I started by shooting the pot it came in. I liked it enough to leave the bamboo in the original pot. You can see my chalkboard underneath. Nice little backdrop here.
I then backed up and shot the whole plant from every angle in the room and light settings and decided I liked this one the best.
I photographed the stalks…..
I placed the plant on the floor and pictured it from above with my feet…..
and finally one without.
I love these projects. It gives me a chance to explore my camera and my subject. Some of the shots actually came out interesting.

This year is supposed to be a good year for the lights. So be looking out for more pictures of the light shows.
