Fall Colors in Chattanooga, October 2005 - Sony Cybershot

I might like the idea of fall more than the reality of it. I'm not sure; we don't have fall in Florida. If I lived in a northern climate, where I had to rake up all those gorgeous, colored leaves, maybe I wouldn't idealize it. I still think I would love the cool, crisp days, the crystalline sunlight, the smell of apples and cinnamon. Yeah. Sign me up.

New Award

Roses, May 2007 - Sony Cybershot

Sharon at Mana Moon has given me an award! Thank you, Sharon! So here goes:

7 Things About Me:

1. I love girly makeup. No, seriously, I freaking adore makeup. I have drawers and boxes full of lip gloss and eyeshadow and blush. I am constantly trying new formulas and colors. I read blogs and magazines about makeup. Makeup makes me very happy.

2. My favorite guilty-pleasure TV show is Supernatural. Yes, I have been a fan of spooky TV and movies since I was about eleven. But the cute boys are the main reason I've seen every single episode, some more than once. And before you ask, I am a Deangirl, without a doubt.

3. I believe in karma. Big time. It informs my decisions and how I treat others.

4. I spend a little too much time wanting to fix things - fix my hair, fix my spending habits, fix my CD-ROM drive, fix my friends' problems. I'm a fixer.

5. I can only use pink, purple or blue sticky notes. The yellow and greens ones make me queasy.

6. I will never ever forget what today means. If I live to be a hundred, I will still start September 11th, every year, with a prayer.

7. I eat one egg, over-easy, with cheese grits every morning. I vary the cheese some times. Today it was parmigiano reggiano. Yesterday it was extra sharp cheddar.

I Am Running Out of Titles

Lemon Bay Park, April 2009 - Nikon D40 with 55mm lens

I was messing around with the editing buttons again. I added noise to this one, and I kind of like the washed out look. The more pictures I take the more I appreciate imperfection.

Coming Storm - Camera Phone

I just realized that is two cloud pictures in a row. Oops. Summer reruns!

That is not a bad picture for my little camera phone.
