Paddle Faster | There are Banjos Playing

I spent the day following the General Clinton Canoe Regatta cheering on a friend who was racing. Beautiful, hot, sunny day. Came away hot and sunburned. All worth it to cheer on a friend. I didn't take too many photos, but that's ok. That's not really what I went for to begin with =)

Wandering in the pouring rain | Life in the back yard

So, it never seems to fail that the rain doesn't really start falling until I wander out with the camera, and while I was in running distance of the house when it decided to downpour, I opted to just hang with it, get wet, and snap a couple pictures... these flowers only last a little while... And I need a reason to pick up the camera.

Flowering Trees | Pollen in the Air

I spent part of this beautiful New York spring day wandering the local parks with my camera in hand, snapping the colorful blossoming trees. I also did my share of inhaling large quantities of tree pollen and the wind was just blowing it off of the trees. So, my reward for taking the day off and going outdoors has been the feeling that my throat is closing up, along with my head expanding. But I wasn't at the office. That's worth it, right?

Fluttering by | The Butterfly Conservatory

Picture snapping time has been a little light lately. I felt the need to get something up on the blog though, so I thought I would put up some things with wings. These are all photos from my favorite butterfly conservatory. Different visits. Different years.

Spring... finally making her appearance

Spring... finally.

The first man in my life...

This past week my dad would have celebrated his 84th birthday. He died unexpectedly in 1998, without me being able to say goodbye. Or that I loved him. Or that I was sorry for causing many sleepless nights due to my antics. I'm thankful for being able to spend the day before with him... although  I often kick myself because if I had paid attention that day, I would have seen signs of things to come...

I really am so much like him. Quiet and reserved for the most part (although there are those who would argue that point!). I like to drive fast, and I have a fondness for the smell of racing fuel. I have his eyes. I love the quiet as he did. 

Anyway. I know that I have a good person looking out for me... and sadly probably taking notes on what I've been doing over the years.

♥ to you dad. Happy birthday.
