Day 134

I kept my camera handy throughout the day.

On the way to the bus stop, I took a panoramic of Alex walking and some of the trees along the path.

These purple flowers grew within the last few days.

The moon still showed in the sky, as the sun was rising higher.

I forgot this little creature the 1st time I posted this entry. I'm not sure how that happened. Anyway, this squirrel surprised me. It stayed calm about a foot away from me. I didn't notice it was there until I was that close. It hopped about 2 feet in front of me and then to my other side, just watching me. I guess I'm weird to them, because I don't try to threaten them. Look at those little hands, ears and bush tail! So cute!

John and I went to Carytown for lunch. As we were walking from Can Can to Premiere Costumes, I noticed this dead ivy still clinging to the high wall. The ivy below that had been cut away from the wall, but the trails of it still showed.

I bought some dessert at Jean Jacques, and took a panoramic of the clouds, from the parking lot.

On the way to the playground, I took a photo of one of the many buds that fell during the last long storm.

While at the playground, I took a panoramic of the trees in front of it.

On the way back to the house, I noticed this large fly. It was about the size of my thumb. The close up makes it creepier looking.

In the evening, Alex and I went to a photography show. When we arrived back home, the sky had a reddish glow. I used the hand held twilight setting to capture the trees in this lightened night sky.


  1. lol, only know would think of that...and know where to find a link of examples. You're right though, they do look like them. Out of curiosity, is there a font that would create a vine and leaf effect? I'd love to play around with a logo that is made of plants.

  2. That fly has little horse hooves! Maybe it's a horse fly. Har har. Great panoramics, Abby.

  3. I'm not sure how big a horsefly is...but I'm thinking smaller that this. It does have little hoof like feet, which is weird. I like his fuzzy butt.

    I'm enjoying taking the panoramics. They are solving a lot of problems I have with photographs where I want to capture wide landscapes, but can't with the regular sized photo frame. I'm looking forward to our GA, FL & SC trip. I want to take so many landscape photos. The GA aquarium has HUGE tanks full of sea life, so this will work great to capture that.
