We think we found Joy Anna a place to live. I think it is like a fairy tale room. There is an arched bed nook and a gnarled tree outside the window. It is in a very old adobe house. The colors are soft and everything about it seems peaceful. I want to send her with a piece of art from mom that has that same feeling. I took a photo tonight of a sunflower. I played with it until I got this soft, peaceful feeling. SO very different from the way I usually enhance a photo- much more loud and fun. I think I like this, though.

July 30 - On the Road to Santa Fe

This is a monument in the middle of the desert. The rainbow was a nice touch. Yes, I did play with it some in photoshop. I was in an artistic mood. haha :)

This represents Joy Anna's new beginning here in Santa Fe- she is clocking in at mile marker 0 and has the whole world before her!

July 29

The Friendship Quilters make prayer squares and quilts- the loose strings are for people to tie knots when they pray over the square or quilt. They make them for military people, those who are hurting or sick, and people going on mission trips to just name a few. These are for those church members who are moving away from our congregation. We call them parting blessings!

July 28

Prayer Shawl Ministry has made over 500 squares to be used for afghans for aids orphans in South Africa. We have made over 100 shawls to be given out, as well.

July 27

This photo has no artistic value at all :) It does sort of represent a stage in our lives right now- This is in Joy Anna's room. She feels like she is sort of a blank puzzle right now - a few missing pieces - and a whole lot more waiting to be filled in.

I hate falling behind

I am behind- again. I owe 4 days, but I have only taken photos on 2 days. I have been working on some other things in the computer. I think I might have to post some of those and try my best to get back on track. Dean informed me I am going to a ball game tomorrow, so I guess I will have photos from there. I am going to start working part time and mainly from home. I am so excited this will give me time for photography :)

Um, I had a yucky day yesterday, and I was not in the mood to take any photos. I did a lot of in computer stuff. Tonight I did go shoot, so I am posting two -one for yesterday and one for today. This one is for you, Dad. There are lots of trains in there.

When I was little, I had a fascination with these candles with the dripping wax. I am not sure why exactly. I guess they always seemed so exotic because they were in a wine bottle

I have been horrible about photos. I am going to have several days of breaking the rules. I guess I could walk out every day and take a photo of the mountain, but I didn't. I did have an opportunity on our trip to take some cool ones, so I will post those for the next few days. Today, Thursday, the 7th, I did take a photo of the mountain.

Ok, I know I am breaking the rules, but I did nothing today but hang out at the house and make a quick run to target and hobby lobby. So, I am going to post another one from our weekend. I will be back to normal tomorrow.

Bonus - Happy Independence Day!

July 4 Road Trip back to El Paso

Can't go to Arizona without a giant cactus photo.

July 3 Road Trip to Phoenix

This was really hard to pick one. I got to do several things I really enjoy today- there was some architecture photography and some time lapse- both of those I really like. There was also some fireworks. I don't usually enjoy that too much, but I did get one that was ok. Anyway, I decided to combine architecture and time lapse.

The clouds over the mountain are wonderful at times. This one is like a solid wall of cloud. so cool

Just a few of my favorite photos. They might be from a photo shoot or just totally random. Please remember that all photos on this site belong to me. It is really not nice to use photos without permission.
