Snow Angels…I think of them often in the winter…maybe it’s because I have grown up in the south and it rarely snows. I can tell you that I thought making a snow angel was a fairly simple thing…wait for the now…lay down in the snow…move your arms and legs around…Voila…Snow Angel! Recently, I had the opportunity to make my very first snow angel…I was as excited as a kid…I fell back into the snow laughing, I made the required snow angel movements…then the moment came…I needed to get up without disturbing my perfect snow angel…reality set in…
Snow Angel perfection will take practice and less snow…

I collect things…and I like finding ways to display them that tells a story. I picked up this collection of vintage camera gear at an estate sale…I paired the pieces with a photograph of our family vacationing in Florida. I like the look…
As we look forward to the new year and all of its possibilities we must pause for a moment and think on all that the past year was and wasn’t…Then it is time to say Goodbye! Although 2013 wasn’t the blogging year I had hoped for it was a great year overall.
So to kick off the year with a blogging bang I have decided to host my first blogging challenge. The 2014 52 Week Photo Challenge begins today with saying Goodbye to 2013. I am looking forward to getting to know you and your part of the world through your interpretation of the challenge prompts.
A sunset is the only goodbye I look forward to…each one is beautiful in its own way and entirely unique.
Saying goodbye to 2013…
Also be sure to use the #NolaGirl52weekchallenge so everyone who is playing along can follow you and see your photos.

Thanks to Sherry at Fabulous 50’s for this beautiful pictorial of the Legendary Lights of Clifton Mill. A true labor of love and worthy of today’s Christmas reblog…Merry Christmas y’all!
Last night my husband and I drove an hour North to see the Legendary Lights of Clifton Mill in Clifton, Ohio. I was excited to test out my new photography skills, since I’ve taken a few classes, and am now shooting only in Manual mode and RAW format. And because I now have a remote shutter release for night-time shots. The 50 degree temperatures and weekday night made it the perfect time to go. We didn’t freeze and weren’t squeezed by too many people! We arrived at 5:30pm and there were already a few photographers set up even though the lights don’t come on until 6:00pm. As we munched on some popcorn, since we didn’t have dinner, I talked with the other photographers a bit. An announcer came on a loud-speaker two minutes before the lights came on to notify us and once they did, I heard a…

Our pomelo trees are heavy with fruit. The fruits are probably weighing a pound each but they are still green and growing. When the fruits are ready for harvest the skin will become pale green to yellow and they will weigh as much as 4lbs. I am looking forward to enjoying the fruits our labor…
