Scavenger Hunt Sunday (03/27/2011)

Decay
Interesting story.  We got thrown out of here (well kind of).  Just to the right of this there was an empty parking lot where someone had set out about six or seven animal traps (they were trying to catch a bunch of cats).  And as soon as we pulled into the parking lot and I got out of the car a lady walked towards us yelling......Are you here to feed the cats?...Don't feed the cats."  I immediately told her that all I wanted was a shot of the building.....so I quickly snapped and left!!  LOL   Whew...so close to being arrested~~well at least it was that exciting in my mind.  hehehe

Group of Three
Three of my expresso cups.

Kitchen
I was born in Cuba and my family fled the island for freedom in Nineteen Sixty (1960).  I grew up  in Miami and Cuban Coffee was always a staple in our kitchen and it continues in mine. Although my hubby does not like it. LOL

Things that make you go Hmmmmmmmmmmm???
This is a photo of the Daytona Speedway Track (Turn 3).  It amazes me the speeds these car travel and considering the 33% of banking on those turns....It just makes me go.........Hmmmmmmmm what would it feel like to be in one of those cars???

Me Time
Don't usually post pics of me but I thought this one was pretty cool.  And it illustrates what I really call Me Time.   An afternoon in a quaint little (nearby) town with camera in hand making pretty images.  (And with my hubby of course)

Supermoon of 2011

The Supermoon of March 19, 2011.  It was March 1993 that the last full moon was this big and close to Earth.  (Perigee)
It was a perfect night on Daytona Beach to watch this phenomenon and the beach was filled with curiosity, anticipation and lots and lots of cameras.   As soon as it appeared you could almost feel the excitment resonating from everyone on that beach.   I am so glad I got to witness and capture it.   Here are some of my photos of the Supermoon!!!

Into the night I go....

I know I've said this before (and recently) but, you could say that I have truly found a passion for night shots. It simply fascinates me.  Of course there is also the fact that I work all day and have a limited window of time for any possible daytime shots, so I make do.  But, in "making do" I have found an avenue that, at one time both scared and frustrated me.   Now, I take it with ease and complete enjoyment and anticipation of the image that it will produce.   I am always in awe the beauty of the sky right at sunset and up to an hour after.
It's magical to take in God's creation and to me it's mesmerizing.
Of course you add a few cars/headlights to the mix and I am one happy girl. =)

Scavenger Hunt Sunday

Here are my interpretations this week!! These were fun doing.


Diptych
Palm Tree right on my yard.  What a gorgeous day it was here yesterday.
Book
This is my year book. That is me (3rd row down 2nd photo) and that is my brother next to me. 
We graduated in 1973 together. (Stop doing the math LOLOL)

Fill in the blank
Everytime I think about how much beauty is in the world, I just have to capture it.

Taste of Italy
My husband is of Italian decent, so every Thursday is pasta night and every Sunday he gets his Pizza.
Of course he says the pizza down here is nothing like the ones up North. Is this true????  =)



Reminder
Everyday I remind myself just how Blessed I am to have such perfect and healthy Grandchildren.
