Just playing with my Tahoe pics and wanted to post them on the blog. I have been so lucky to visit so much this past year and hope for another couple summer trips before its over !
Here in southern Utah it feels like spring this week. It’s only February but the sun has come out to play for a while so I took my camera and headed to one of my favorite places. Snow Canyon is like a crayon box to me and a photographers dream. You experience every color there from Deep red to orange, yellow, green, blue and purple. This is what I came up with. Enjoy!
I was so excited to find horses running about Wild and free in Sparks, Nevada outside of Reno.
Mike and I had walked down to the Truckee river and I said, “wouldn’t it be something to see those horses here,” and he said, “turn around” and there they were coming out of the brush.
Among them was a foal. I was thrilled and got many pictures. This is the first couple of a few I will post.
A crisp and cool fall day with the sun breaking through the pine trees in lake Tahoe . It is a spectacular sight to capture as Fall makes way for winter. We went around the entire lake in a day and enjoyed the sights, stopping at a fun place for lunch and even got to check out an art gallery and thrift store.
Just when I was humming along getting familiar with blogging and doing my thing my Mac laptop decided it was on overload. I happily sat down the other day and popped it opened, pressed down on the button only to find a dark screen that said, “your startup drive is full.” Apparently my love of photography and my knack for keeping every little thing has finally caught up with me. My world suddenly went dark and empty, a spiraling abyss. Ok, so I am being a little melodramatic but, I am out of commission. I sit and stare at the computer and try again five minutes later. Nothing… It just turns against me dark and cold. The next day out of habit I want to grab the computer and click it on. I have an Idea, I want to blog it, frustration mounts and withdrawal sets in.
Just as well I think, I need to focus on other things for a few days and then I will get the mac into the mac doctor. Which leads me to this thought. How come when I am overloaded and my start up drive is full I don’t get to shut down. Or do we just call that a “nap?” I know like most people my start up drive does get full. Sometimes in juggling the roles of being wife, Mom, employee and more life can get pretty crazy and yes, a nap is what gets me through. Sometimes when my mood get’s dark and the world seems cold just like my Mac I need more than a nap. I need an adventure or a vacation really. If a vacation isn’t a reality which most often is the case I can settle with grabbing my camera and heading for nature or some quaint place just for the day as a reboot. Treasure hunting in an antique or second hand store and always dining with someone I love, My Mike, One of my kids or a friend. When I take the time to do this I am so much better for it later. Tonight I went with my daughter for some dinner and I got a fortune cookie that said I will soon find new Adventure! I’m ready, bring it on!
