18/360 - an anniversary

Last week, when we were celebrating the 9th birthday of my last "homemade" baby, we were also quietly marking the anniversary of another event. Three years ago last Monday, we woke up to the news that while we had been sleeping, on the other side of a world, an Ethiopian judge had seen fit to make us parents for the last time.

At long last, after 8 months of waiting, wondering, fretting, hoping, our Bear was finally our Bear.

It would still be a few weeks before he would come home to us, but on that day he was officially our son.

17/360 -Thematic Photographic 132: Curves

Carmi's Thematic Photographic this week almost stumped me. Couldn't come up with anything for "curves" until I found these.

Several years ago I learned the ancient art of pysanky. Though traditionally done on eggs, I decided to try the batik technique to make some cards. These are photos of the final results.

16/360 - Nine!

Nine. Today, my jubilation, my baby, turned nine years old. Nine years old. Still trying to figure how that happened so quickly.

15/360 - Blue

Thematic Photographic for the week is "blue." Love it. So many different shades, so many ways of looking at it. Fun.


A Slice of Blue
This little bit of blue just reached out and grabbed me.

Triple Blue
The sky, the ocean, the kites. (Kailua Beach, O'ahu Hawai'i)

"The Left Foot of Budda"
(No kidding - that's what it's called!)
My cousin is an artist and this is his creation.
It adorns the outside of this gallery/home,
the What's a Pot Shop, in Silver City, NM

Blue Hot

Nothing but Blue Skies
The balloons aren't the only reason to look up.
Over 600 hot air balloons and a blue sky like this - incredible.

Blue isn't just a color
sometimes it's a feeling - a feeling I know well.
"Speechless" by JDM

More blue images found here at Carmi's Thematic Photographic this week.
