Just when we get our “ducks in a row” mother nature plays a trick. It’s hard to trump mother nature.

Fun Photos with Rain and Lights

The camera experience continues. Last night on the way home, it was raining and dark. I was amazed at the beautiful reflections cast on the roads. Add to that the multiplication effect of rain drops on the windshield and I had a field day creating some new visual illusions.

Hopefully you will have a chance to check them out at the Totally Random Shez blog.

Please drop me a note at either blog to let me know what you think of them. The header at Totally Random Shez looks like a New Year Celebration. And with that I want to wish you all a very Happy New Year.

Cheers,

Shez

The Amazing Gift

I hope you all had a lovely Merry Christmas. Mine was filled with food, family, laughter and love. It also contained an amazing surprise that I had a hard time putting down. I am still in shock that even with tons of help from my husband who knew he was responsible for my quandary, we had everything ready for our guests on time.

Well, everything except me. I was clean and groomed including my makeup but I was still in my tee-shirt and jeans when folks arrived. I faced photo ops I couldn’t pass up, time for which were not on my “to-do list.” I thought about slipping away and changing quickly, but in the end remained in my casual attire and had a very lovely day. Any of you who are photographers will likely understand my priorities.

With that being said, you can read about my early morning surprise at Totally Random Shez.

Be Careful What You Wish For

Be careful what you wish for, you might just get it. My friend dollyknickers recently commented on a post I did on Totally Random Shez. It showed some amazing light from the window. She wanted to know what the window looked like.

A couple of months ago I had taken photos of that window, because in one view there appears to be six very different scenes. I will post them here in order and the final one which depicts the window in total. Since the photo was taken indoors and the light outside was bright the window appears to have very dark stained wood moldings. In truth all of the woodwork is a very bright white. The camera can be so good at fooling us, when we think it always tells the truth.

To check out the light see my blog post at Totally Random Shez. I will add the link tomorrow. In the meantime, I hope you enjoyed this little window gallery of photos. It will be fun to take the same shots now that the leaves are gone. What would the window vignettes reveal?

Cheers,

Shez

Oh, please don’t forget to leave a comment. I do love to hear from you.

Newest from Shez is “Ever Changing Skylights”

I have confirmed a truth. I cannot keep more than one blog going daily. At least for now. There’s always a next year and that is like in just over three weeks…yikes! Let me see, there could be a new plan, Shez Blogs on even days which leaves Totally Random Shez on ODD. Yes, it could work, and it would give each post a couple of days for views. That could be good. Hummmm, I may have hatched a workable plan.

The Totally Random Shez post is a photo essay featuring the changing sky from dusk to fifteen minutes later when it’s lights out. Please take a quick pop over to check it out.
