My Photo: A Hummingbird’s Visit

Okay, I took these photo shots last week. I have to admit these photos came out okay. Even though, I took these photo shots from indoors.

This little hummingbird paid a nice visit

 

This was once lucky photo shot.

 

Take a closer look.

I was looking out the window, when I noticed this little hummingbird.  I hurried for my camera and hoped this little hummingbird did not fly away. Sure, enough the hummingbird was still in the Mamou tree.  🙂

This hummingbird was busy.

 

Once this little hummingbird was finish. It flew away.

 

 

Have a nice week!  🙂

 

My Photo: If Geese Could Talk

Okay, when I took this photo shot, an idea formed. I wondered, What if I add a few words. My first try on a short comic about these four geese that looked lost.

If geese could talk, this is what they would say. Creative Commons License A Short Conversation Between Geese by V. Rose Demet is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivatives 4.0 International License.

If geese could talk, this is what they would say.  I might have to redo the fonts for the second sentence, which should read. “Of course, keep going south.”

 

Okay, I think this photo shot came out okay, as for this short comic I might keep this short comic or put it aside for a while. But never know with me. Sometime a little laughter is needed, for a rough day.

 

Have a great weekend.  🙂

 

 

My Writing: 14 Years Ago Today

Okay, this little essay was written a few years back, Today it’s a dedication to my Dad, who was a rice farmer for fifty something years before retiring.  14 years ago we lost my Dad (Heart attack. That’s all I will say for now. That was the first upside down and nightmare.)

Anyway, after reading this essay and editing once more, I  can say I am finish with this essay… Unless, I find something wrong. But never know with me.

 

Haunted Fields

From dawn to dust

He walks the lonely fields, each day,

With his shovel over his shoulder.

He checks for anything amiss in the fields.

 Those whom seen him says,

He hasn’t aged since the day

They first met him.

He, still wears his old straw cowboy hat

Blue faded long sleeves shirt and jeans.

Of course, he still wears his green hip boots.

To walk in the murky water of the rice field.

Now, a days he does not speak to many.

Maybe to those whom seen him in the per-dawn hours.

From what I have heard.

He walks in the distance rice fields.

They know it’s him by his shovel

over his shoulders.

Others seen him on John Deere tractor

plowing away in a field

and mysteriously vanish by their presence.

The only sign of him, ever being there

is the lonely distance sound

of a John Deere tractor’s whistle

fading into the sunset.

No one knows why he walks the fields.

 If they did, they would have tears in

the eyes.

Maybe someday his search will be over

and he’ll finally rest.

Maybe next year, I will write about that day.

Maybe next year, I will write about that day.

Last but not least a new little Rose bush is blooming.. Roses was my Dad’s favorite flower also.  He could take a Rose branch and plant it in the ground and a few months later. The Rose bush would be growing. He had a green thumb for gardening.

My Photo: A Quiet Summer Afternoon

Okay, I took this photo shot a few days ago after a little rain shower. Oh yes, it got hot again when the sun came out. But this is a typical Southwest Louisiana summer time weather.

 

After a rain shower passed over my home.

Okay, now this photo shot came out a little better. But that’s only my opinion.

My Photo: A Potato’s Nightmare

Okay, I took this photo shot yesterday evening. I have to admit this photo shot is not my best photo. I was not too happy with this caterpillar.

 

 

This caterpillar decided to munch on my potato's leaf.

My Photo: National Siblings Day

Okay, yesterday was National Sibling Day, which I found out about a few hours ago. After one of my siblings posted a photo shot of us on Facebook. I don’t usually post photo shots of my siblings often. But I decided to share this photo shot of my younger siblings.

I think this photo shot came out okay, even though it’s was taken with a Polaroid camera back in the early 90’s.

 

We never could keep our eyes open for a photo shot.

Beautiful Roses. I am waiting for the Roses to bloom this year.

Last month we had to pruned the Rose brush, to transplant the bush to another spot in the front yard. Now, I am watching the branches on the Rose bush grow back.    🙂

 

My Photo: Christmas Eve 2015

I had to look through my photo album for this photo, which was taken on Christmas Day 1981.

I wanted to sit next to my Grandpa. The only one missing in this photo shot is my youngest brother.

Last but not least a photo shot of myself.  It never seems to fail I always close my eyes when I take a photo shot.

I was thinking give me Hazelnut coffee. I am still sleepy.

My Photo: Holiday Memories 2015

Okay, these photo shots were taken on Thanksgiving Day. I cooked the Turkey again this year. The photo shot below shows how the Turkey came out this year. I think I did a good job cooking the Turkey.  That morning I was up for 4:00 a.m.  Oh yes,  for the holidays I am up very earlier and the coffee is on.

Anyway, I think these two photo shots came out okay.  🙂

My second year cooking the Turkey.

After a long day I went outdoors and took this photo shot.

I never notice the flock of birds flying in the distance..
