First Signs of Spring Are Here!!!!

So I finally got out there and took some pics of the first signs of Spring. The weather is awesome, even if it is a little chilly! I am excited that the nice weather is back!
I love those little patches of color that just appear out of the ground.....makes me smile!

Now all I need is for the tulips and the hyacinths to come up. I love them!

Renaissance Festival 2008

So, since it is a cold day and I have no desire to wander outside, I decided to poke through some old pictures and do a couple of posts.

I love the Renaissance Festival. You see some pretty colorful characters out there.

This guy to the left was talking to another person and I loved the brightly colored background he was standing in front of.

This lady to the right was difficult to capture. She kept moving around so I finally had to settle on a picture of the back half of her. I loved the details in her gown.

I wasn't quite sure just what this guy was. A traveling minstrel perhaps? Anyway, I think he was REALLY enjoying himself that day.

And this last one is one of my favorites. You cannot, I repeat, CANNOT, go to the Renaissance Festival without going to the Mud Show. So much fun. If you take your camera though, DO NOT sit up front. Sit waaaayyyyyy in the back and use a telephoto lens.

Ready for Spring

I am so ready for Spring this year! I am ready for the warm weather, flowers, green grass.....ahhhh. So to get myself ready for Spring, I poked through some of my flower pics and came up with a couple of my faves.
I am getting really tired of this cold weather....I am ready for warm weather so I can get out more! My camera is lonely and I have some awesome (I hope) ideas that I can't wait to get out there and try. That and I have some new equipment I want to get out there with as well.
