Not a fit day for man or beast..

Today was one of those wet,cold, miserable days that you just want to wrap up in a blanket and forget it ever started.

It had been raining most of the morning and my honey just loves a hot Green Tea Latte' in this type of weather.

So, being the wonderful and kind husband that I am...
I went and got the spoiled little brat one.

She would have done it for me.

something old...

I pulled into the gas station to fill up and as I stood by the rear fender of my car bored to death waiting for it to fill in comes this little classic 1929 Ford Woodie.

Wow !@!

I whipped out my camera and went to work. 
Enjoy...I did.

Enjoying a stroll in town...

Ah, first week of Summer. I took a little stroll down town Auburn this morning. After the wife and I stopped at the Farmers market.
And I didn't even buy any pastries or goodies.

This is Main street East in town with all the lovely hanging plants the city takes care of.

A very old veteran establishment here in town. Nelson's is a landmark to the locals.

This lovely Seniorita was selling flowers at the market.

It was truly a fun morning.

Nature's best

This morning I had the pleasure of a spur of the moment shot.
As I was coming in from the car with an arm load of stuff, there was this beauty on the plant next to the door.

I ran in the house and got my camera. Thanks God, it was still there.

Fun morning with a Humming Bird

This weekend I was fortunate enough to get a new Nikon camera. I unpacked it and took it out on the patio to play with the buttons.

I saw this little guy having a bite to eat and thought, why not. I hadn't even set up the camera yet. And I shot them a little darker then I would have liked, but I was amazed how they came out.

Can't wait to try it again at a higher speed.

These little rascals are FAST.

I'm sure I will be taking a bunch more as time goes on.

Come back and take a look.
Thanks again for stopping by.

Beyond Layers- Black and white

Friends, before and after - mouseover

Kim's new texture for the weekend.

Kim Klassen sent this wonderful Post card texture to share with us all Sunday. I had just gone out in the yard to take a few pictures of the wife's flowers. Worked out great.

Again Kim was showing us the use of Brushes in Photoshop. This was my last attempt.

Last but not least, I made this for my honey. Using her flowers as my muse.

Please click the photo to enlarge.

See you next time.
