I am someone who enjoys taking photos, my subjects are random, from bugs to babies. Photography is therapy for me, I have no real knowledge of the art, I am learning a bit here and there. I use an inexpensive camera.I simply love taking shots of interesting or beautiful things I see. I love the adventure of attempting to get the perfect shot. Please enjoy these photos and share them with your friends. For me the ultimate success is knowing someone may be amazed or made to smile.

Went to the Beach

I made a trip to the coast today( 2/26), it was a combined trip, one for my brain and to take photos of my great-niece for her graduation. You will see pictures of a very stormy ocean as well as pictures of a very cute 17 year old girl. Note the mini skirt and Uggs, I was in jeans and 2 sweatshirts....

After leaving the beach we headed for home, the storm hit full force just as I was walking back to the car. The drive home is a little over an hour on quite windy roads in some parts, rain and wind, actually I was enjoying it. We got about 30 miles from my home,we were on a straight stretch coming into Veneta, Oregon, I apparently fell asleep. I woke to the car behind me honking and I was headed straight for the ditch and field, across the oncoming lane already. I woke with a jerk, pulled the car straight and back to the correct lane. Kitti had been playing games on her phone and didn't even notice. It scared the crap outa me, I pulled over in the shopping center parking lot and grabbed a bite to eat and a drink. I got her and myself home safely, I do not know what caused this, I was not tired and had eaten. I am thinking I need a med change, or something. I have had a few episodes while driving to my mama's home,which is only 14 miles. Now I am afraid to drive at all so there wont be too many of  these journey's on my own for awhile until I know what is the cause. Thank you, for visiting and I hope you enjoy the photos.
I am grateful I am here to post them for you!
