Filling the Frame

I've been participating in a weekly photo challenge Facebook group called, Definitely Dreaming.

This week's challenge, Filling the Frame.

Here's Ryker making sure he's filling the frame this Sunday morning.  Mornings are a constant stream of jumps on and off the bed and running from the inside to the outside until the two tired themselves out and then snuggle themselves to sleep next to me.

Ryker in the Gloaming

Sometimes light just happens and you just happen to have your camera and the object of this light just happens right in front of you.

2018 New Beginning and Becoming Something New

2018 is a new year for me. I am recently retired and my former self was in the field as an administrative legal secretary at the South Coast Air Quality Management District.

And now….I am what? That’s what I hope to find out. What am I to become now. I’ll still be married and living in a family household with my niece, my grandniece and mother; along with two basenjis. This is Ryker and Rookie LeRoux.

Empty Shoes Haiku

Empty shoes left on curb

unknowingly left behind when she stepped up

no one noticed bare feet

Just a beautiful photo of my Ryker Le Roux.  He likes sitting like this because he can.  He will sit like this for awhile or until I bring out my camera and disturb his inner peace.

The Playfulness of Light

Took some time away to enjoy a day at Descanso Botanical Gardens the other day.  The gardens were under some serious renovations to many of the garden areas.  Lots of overturned dirt and red string borders outlining their new ideas for the gardens.

Not much was blooming since technically its still winter.  Yes even in California we have a very mild winter.  After the first serious rain, I wanted to roam about mostly to enjoy the silence and feel the peacefulness that the gardens provide.  It was a little of both except for the herd of teenage students who were on a field trip.

Since nothing really was in bloom, I decided to look for interesting light.  This is what I got from my day.

How long can such beauty last when it is just  barely hanging from a vine?
