My Photo: Rice Harvest Time

Okay, I took these photo shots a few weeks back from my Mom’s backyard. Watching the combine cut rice in the fields brings back memories of my Dad  in the rice fields.

Anyway,  I can say these photo shots came out nice. But that’s only my opinion.

Rice Feast.. Those birds were having a snack.

 

 

Last but not least,  a beautiful sight of rice being cut.

Have a great week 🙂

 

My Photo: My Tropical Sunset View

Okay, I took this photo shot a few weeks ago. My reaction when I saw the sunset was to grab my camera,  I was not expecting to capture this view for it was

A perfect setting for a story idea.

Never expected to capture this view. Wow! was my reaction.

Okay, I think these two photo shots came out nice.

How a great weekend ☺

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: A Visit From November and December

Okay, as I look back on 2016, I realize I have accomplish two of my goals for 2016. I learned an important lesson on non-writer friends. I can listen to their opinion, but I do not need to follow their advice. I am a writer and nothing they says will get me discourage into not writing.(Oops! I got off the subject.)

Anyway, here is my favorite photos from November and December.

 

I watched as the clouds as they changed color.

My thoughts takes me miles away.

I wish I was in a far off place I writing.

Now, I could not leave my November’s without sharing these photo shots of the Moon. I have to admit my Moon photo shots has improved, since I began taken photo shots of the evening sky.

 

A Novemeber Full Moon

An improvement since my first Full Moon photo shot.

On a quiet November evening. My only complaint. It was not cold. :(

As I said good-bye to November. December came in with a rush. My Birthday was not what I expected, which meant no self photo.  But I did get these nice photo shots.

I have no idea what 2017 will bring for me, but I am hoping for something nice this year.

 

Have wonderful weekend 🙂

My Writing: Goals For 2017

My goals and plans for 2017.
• Write a post on a subject I never mention. But needs to be written.
• Take vacation without informing family members until the last-minute.
• Write more poems.
• Finish editing my book.
• Have patience and motivation when editing. (Don’t Delete file by mistake again. I will always check Recycle Bin.)
• Write one post on a tough topic. Later, in the year.
• More photo shots.
• Research my family history, which is a mystery.
• My education In my younger years, I had to put off furthering my education. Now, I want to learn new things.
• Job hunting again. Apparently, not many appreciate honest help. (Maybe, a future post on this subject. Never know with me.)

I think my list for 2017 will be simple or maybe not. But never with me.

 

 

Last but not least, a few photo shots I have taken in the past years. (Photo shots not in order.)

As it went down I snapped shots of these nice

My Photo: A Visit From August and September

Now, August brought a lot of rain, a flood to the surrounding area. The Highway in front of my Mom’s home.

After a week of heavy rain, this was Monday morning.

The water slowly went over the road in the early morning hours. That’s all I will say about The August’s flood.  As August slipped away September brought in beautiful sunset

 

 

When I see this photo shot I think of a fiery sky.

The next afternoon I venture towards the nest again for more photo shots. Image my surprise when I saw the Killdeer running towards me. It was not until I realized the other grown Killdeer was also chirping away.  I had to look around for before I spotted this little one.

My Photo: A Visit from April and May

While April flew on by, I was able to take these nice photos.

 

I walked slowly towards the milk thistle. Here I noticed this little bee and bug.

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.  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 Photo: Red Zinger Hibiscus Flowers

Okay, I took these photo shot a few weeks ago. I am happy to say this was the first time, I got a chance to plant this type of flower. No flowers, I have ever planted did this well. This little Zinger Hibiscus did real well.

The angle was perfect but I had to use the flash.

The angle was just right for this photo shot, but I had to use the flash.

I took this photo shot from a top view. I had to stand on the steps to get this view.
