Final Roses of the Season

Looking at the bottom rose that is
getting ready to open, you would never
guess that it would be so yellow once
it opens it's petal's.

Another trolley picture that was taken in Memphis,

Memphis Trolley


Again, this is from my photo archives.
Taken December 2010, in Memphis, TN.
I don't know what bridge this goes over,
but right behind us is the Mississippi River.
This was also used in an assignment for class,
object was to catch an object in motion and freeze it.

The Mississippi River


Another photo from my archives that was
snapped for my class. This was on the Mississippi
River, Dec. 2010. I loved how the boat in the front
takes up majority of the picture and the barge is
minimal in the background.

Pullman Firehouse


Pullman Firehouse, 1890's-1957
This was another assignment for
my photography class. We had to tell a
story with our pictures. My story was
about the change in architecture of
Chicago Firehouses through the
years. This was one of my favorite
photo's and it was my teacher's favorite as well.

A Misty Morning

Photo taken from my archives.
This is the view from my room at the

Sparring Flamingos at Lincoln Park Zoo

We spent an hour or so at the
Lincoln Park Zoo last week. 
The flamingo's are beautiful, these few were sparring.
They made the oddest of noises, their feathers were getting 
ruffled and they were pecking at each other.

Fall in Chicago

I recently won a copy of My Memories Suite and 
I thought I would take some time to play with it.
I created this page with some of my recent fall pictures.
This was created with the Funky Fall Album.

Never Forget

I have been waiting all week to take this picture. 
Today is the first day we had any wind to make the flag fly. 
Where the stars are, they also have the New York Sky line, not sure if you can see that. 
I have not seen this flag in any store, but would love to go and buy on to fly at our house.

Brotherly Love


Meet Tom & Jerry, two of our three cats. These two were from the same litter.
Nine years later and they still are very close.

The Art of Mother Nature


I have no clue what type of flower this is.
This flower is the first one I photographed and got me hooked on taking photo's of flowers.

Stream Cleaning


This guy was cleaning the stream. Not sure I would like that job. The waterfall was not large by any means, but you could get hurt if you fell. This was taken at Hurricane Mills, TN. Just above the stream is the home of Loretta Lynn.

A Country Home




Photo taken from my recent road trip. This was our day trip to Hurricane Mills, TN to visit the home of Loretta Lynn. The home above is a replica of the home she grew up in, back in Butcher Holler, Kentucky. I've read that the original home sits on the property in Hurricane Mills, but we did not see it. Hurricane Mills has a campground on site and Loretta is performing a concert there in September. The property is absolutely beautiful and I look forward to returning to actually tour her home.

Precious Lily

I apologize for not being able to post anything lately. I took some time off to visit my Mom out of state. While I was away, I did take some photo's and will begin to share those with you. This precious lily is in our garden in the front of our house. We have 3 different Lily's planted here and this is the only one that has bloomed so far this year.

Water Falls


It has been a rough few days, so I bring you another shot from my archives. This was taken from my Iphone at Ruby Falls, with all the lights out. My regular camera could not get a picture of anything. I was so happy that the Iphone captured it.

The Beauty of Night


Photo taken from my archives. This was shot in Salem, MA behind the The House of Seven Gables. My visit was in June of 2011, we did a quick night tour of Salem and this was captured via my Iphone. Neither my aunt, nor my cousin were able to capture this photo with a regular camera. Sometimes, I am very thankful for newer technology.

Full Moon


The last two night we have had what seems to be a full, but hazy moon. I love taking photo's of the moon to see what will show up in the photo.

A Rose by Any Other Name, is Just a Rose




This lovely rose was from a bush that was originally a light yellow. We planted a miniature red rose bush in front of it and now we have multi colored roses. They start with very little pink on the edges, by the time it completely opens the leaves will have a much deeper pink color.

Welcome

Welcome to Life Through The Eye of my Camera. This blog is part of the 365 Project, a picture for every day. My goal is of course to post a picture that I take for each of the 365 days that follow. I hope you enjoy my journey through pictures.

A special thanks to my friend Gini for the inspiration to start this blog.
