Sunday Stills-the best of 2010

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted anything on my blog.  My one and only resolution for the new year was to do better on posting this year.  What better way to get started than with the first Sunday Stills of 2011. 

This is one of my favorite spots to photograph – Rocky Fork Dam.  As you can see, this was taken after a beautiful snowfall.

These are a couple of my very favorite shots of the blessing that arrived in late February of 2010.  My Mom’s first great-grandson.

The summer soon arrived and so did the butterflies, birds and flowers.

I loved this shot of a train sitting in the countryside in Fayette County. 

Christmas is my favorite time of the year and I had to include a couple of shots of my Christmas trees.  The first one is a simple close-up of the candlelites on our livingroom tree and the second is a tribute to our troops and my son who is deployed.  Keep’em flyin’ son! Semper Fi!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!  I’m looking forward to seeing all the great photos to come in 2011.


Sunday Stills – Hands

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , on April 11, 2010 by TheEggGatherer

I didn’t read the challenge until yesterday and thought I was going to have to go outside and take some quick snaps of the husband and the Carpenters next door while they were working in the yard and garden.  As I prepared my camera for the task I decided to take a look back through the photos that I had taken a couple of weeks ago while visiting our new family member.  What I discovered were hands…tiny little hands, the hands of a new Daddy, hands of a new Grandma and Grandpa and the loving hands of a new Great-Grandma.  

Their first encounter – Great-grandma and baby Kash.

Hands of love – Grandpa taking his turn with the help of great-Gma.

In his Daddy’s hands – big safe hands.

There’s nothing like a Grandma’s touch, especially the touch of a new Grandma.

Then…the touch of the hands of a sweet little friend coming to visit the first time…..

The one set of hands that I didn’t have a photo of were the hands of Momma A….hands of a wife, nurse, wonderful cook and most of all a great new Mom.

I can’t wait to watch these little hands grow and discover the world around him…..
