Foto Friday

I have a stupid cold and since I put up lots of pics in one week, I thought about blowing today off. But I'm reading a photography book and one of the things it says is that if you really want to learn your camera settings you have to force yourself to use it every day. Even if you aren't getting amazing shots of anything, you're still learning more about your camera. So nothing exiting, but it's photos.

One of the effects of all the crazy rain we've had this spring, is the grass is growing like crazy! It actually doesn't seem like we live in a desert this year. My sister was mowing the lawn today and had company from my parents dog Zen. Zen has an obsession with the lawn mower. He loves to run along side it, or in front trying to catch the grass as it shoots out. He sort of gets in the way. This is the same dog that has been hit multiple times because he also loves to chase trucks.

The times I have mowed my parents lawn I purposely keep Zen inside. Maiken was feeling like company I guess. Crazy dog.

And some more of my mom's flowers. There is definitely never a shortage of flowers at her house.

And now I'm off to enjoy sleep and tissues.

Your pics are so GREAT!!! You have a natural ability to see things and compose them perfectly. The ones of the dog and the lawn mower are so fun.
Can't wait for the next post!

That grass is pretty much always out of control - it's too bad the riding mower died. Zen is crazy. I love him.
