Forgotten Shed – Snapshot of the Day, No. 121

The house next to my old one has a shed in the backyard that was built years ago to be used as a workshop. The owner moved away years later, and the new tenants have no use for it. Sadly, it has just been neglected ever since. Ivy and moss have taken over. I thinkContinue reading “Forgotten Shed – Snapshot of the Day, No. 121”

Baby Birds – Snapshot of the Day, No. 120

I’ve been trying to water this hanging fern for weeks now, but I have yet to be successful. Almost immediately after I hung the darn thing, a bird built a nest and laid eggs. Today I gently checked to see if the eggs had hatched, in hopes the babies would have flown the coop. ButContinue reading “Baby Birds – Snapshot of the Day, No. 120”

Readers – Snapshot of the Day, No. 118

It is said that when you turn 40 you will need to start using reading glasses – if you don’t wear glasses already, of course. Well, that is correct. But what “They” don’t tell you is it pretty much happens the DAY you turn 40. So you might as well go ahead and buy some,Continue reading “Readers – Snapshot of the Day, No. 118”

Eating Out – Snapshot of the Day, No. 117

Dinner for us again at Big River Grille in East Brainerd. We normally sit on the patio this time of year, but it had been storming pretty heavily earlier. Everything was soaking wet. I knew our next stop was going to be Home Depot for fence supplies, so I decided today’s photo would be shotContinue reading “Eating Out – Snapshot of the Day, No. 117”

Getting Hosed – Snapshot of the Day, No. 115

More trips to the former house for work on the new fence tonight. We had to set the last two posts into the ground before we start nailing up the pickets. I had the hose out to get the cement wet and decided I liked the pattern of it against the little patio I createdContinue reading “Getting Hosed – Snapshot of the Day, No. 115”

The Disagreement – Snapshot of the Day, No. 113

Our nephew had his 3rd birthday party today. Loads of fun for all involved. I took close to 100 photos, but this one was the one I designated in my head as the photo of the day before I shot it. My project being “One Shot – One Chance,” after all. But it was particularlyContinue reading “The Disagreement – Snapshot of the Day, No. 113”

Hunting Flies – Snapshot of the Day, No. 112

You may not believe me, but only after I named this image, “Hunting Flies,” did I notice our frog has an insect balanced on his nose in this shot. I was busier than usual today at work. Fridays are always on the wild side. Today was extra busy. But anyway, no time for my shotContinue reading “Hunting Flies – Snapshot of the Day, No. 112”

For Good Causes – Snapshot of the Day, No. 109

My sister held a party for Freeset, a partner with Better Way Imports tonight. It’s an organization that gives women who have escaped from being sex slaves in India, among other countries, jobs and an education. The profits from the products they make go back to them to make it happen. The products are all veryContinue reading “For Good Causes – Snapshot of the Day, No. 109”
