Money shot is my middle name (alternate title: Yes, I really took the pictures myself. They are THAT good.)


Being photography junkies when we travel, Mr. T and I bought a new SLR camera before the trip. It is absolutely amazing, and makes me feel like I'm a professional just snapping away at everything I see. One thing I love to photograph is flowers. Flowers are powerful yet delicate at the same time, and exude a peacefulness that only exists in nature.



{Take a closer look above and you'll see a hummingbird headed for the flower of the palm tree.}




{I just loved these flowers. They look like little lanterns that you'd expect to glow in the dark. But each one produces a bright red flower that emerges from the bottom and hangs there until it falls off.}

  1. This is so much easier than coming over to sit on your couch with you while you drag out your wedding album. All 567 proofs.

  8. I had a BEAUTIFUL closeup of a bumblebee on my blog last year. I wasn't thinking. I could have used my photo program to zoom in on him, BUTIGOTTHISCLOSE and he slammed right into my lense, scared the crap out of me, threw me backwards and my camera forwards. . . . into the gravel. Consequences: Joe laughing his ass off and my camera going to heaven.
