Shooting Gallery

Those few of you who actually stop by here on a regular basis have probably noticed that the past few weeks my posts have been mostly photographic in nature. In my very first post I stated that I had no idea where I was going with this blog, and I still don't.
I said it would provide a place to vent my frustrations about the world around me. Since I'm not a real political animal, nor do I thrive on confrontation, I haven't done much venting. That's a good thing. Trust me.
I also said I would dote on the grandcrew! Mission accomplished! Of course that is the source of a lot of the photos that have been a part of this blog. Recently though, I have focused on Ruby Tuesday and Wordless Wednesday, mostly because I've run out of topics with thirteen interesting things to post on Thursday. Ruby Tuesday and Wordless Wednesday give me a reason to post photos. They give me a reason to play with Photoshop Elements. They give me an opportunity to share the world around me with the whole world through the lens of my camera(s). I have actually started blocking out time in my week to shoot some photographs and I have Ruby Tuesday and Wordless Wednesday in mind most of the time. When I know I am going to be shooting, I take my Nikon D80 digital SLR. It takes spectacular photos and I love using it. This camera is capable of doing far more than I ask of it or even know to ask of it. I also keep a Canon A620 point and shoot digital camera in the center console of my truck. I think Canon still makes the best point and shoot cameras on the market. This gives me the opportunity to shoot anything I find interesting anytime, anywhere. So, if this blog has taken a more photogenic look to it lately, now you know why. I will probably return to more typical blogging one of these days, but for now, you will just have to get used to the idea that I am going to be taking a lot of pictures and wearing you out with them. So, were do we go next?

Well, I already have the next two Ruby Tuesday's planned and the next Wordless Wednesday as well. I will take you on a tour of the town square one of these days, maybe this fall, and I will shoot more of the grandcrew for sure. I have a couple of more ideas rolling around in my head for future posts so stop by often and see what I've been shooting. Oh yeah, I almost forgot, I will still be posting an inspirational song every Friday. That's something that I look forward to.

Hey Pawpaw, I coulda been a Ruby Tuesday or a Wordless Wednesday!

Good for you. Do what you enjoy I say. I was doing every meme around for a bit and just plain burned myself out. Can't seem to do one at all now. Perhaps later. Just have fun. That's the important part. Have a great day. :)

Whatever you post, I will be here to read or view it...

The only weekly meme I do on a regular basis is Mo's Manic Monday. I'll occasionally do some of the others. But I prefer not to be tied to specific posts on specific days.

Although, during Dance seasons you know you'll always find the performance recaps and results! And football blogging on Sudays.

I can relate to the drying up of 13 lists! I am even running a little dry on the other topics, and since I don't have a spectacular camera like you (or the eye for a good photo) my blog is not getting much attention these days. I am still posting fairly regularly on the forum for my weight loss, but since I don't want to bore everyone with my details at Miller Manor, and that is the main thing going on in my life right now, I just don't know what to say!

I enjoy your pix, though, so I am glad you didn't just drop off the web!
