Friday My Town shoot Out...

Today' theme is.."Your Town's Premier Attraction" by Kent. With out a doubt our city revolves around Lake Coeur d Alene. A very large part of our town's economy comes from tourism and all that happens on and around the lake.

It is large and supports sailing and many other fun summer sports. A short five block walk from our house..that water calls us all year long!

A short five block walk from our house..the lake calls us even in the chilly season!

Lots of water puppies here...

A favorite spot of teens here..jumping off Tubbs Hill!!

Hope you all have a wonderful week!! Namaste, Sarah

A Few That Pleased My Eye....

I looked out my back door yesterday morning and saw of those OMG where is my camera moments. The first two were straight out of the camera plus a watermark.

These two I played with a little.. for some reason they reminded me of the end of Gone with the Wind..or the Wizard of Oz. Anyway..they pleased my eye. Hope you enjoy them too. Namaste, Sarah

Macro Monday

This one just makes me hungry. A closeup of the treat cups at Nonni's Kindergarten Halloween party.

I finally lured a few sparrows close enough to sneak a few shots.

Here are a couple of my husband's mineral specimens. I do all of the photography for his Ebay listings. I am currently working on a collection of shots to offer on greeting cards at his shows.

Have a wonderful week all! Namaste, Sarah

Friday My Town Shootout..

Today's topic is Places of Rebecca. Many of you know I live in the garden district of our town. I love it, I really do. Lots of older homes, ours is about 100. One of the things I love about living here is the church bells. Not annoying ones, the lovely twice a day tolling that makes me feel at peace. I am not Catholic but this beautiful Catholic church is just up the street and around the corner from us. It has been here a good long time..but it is a stunning building.

When my preschoolers and I walk by they insist that it is a castle, not a church..they are swaying the three year olds!!

Of course there is something to be said about worshiping in a place like could you miss the grandeur and heart touching beauty here?

When I look upon something like this...I give thanks that I am blessed with delicate beauty like this in my life!!

Namaste, Sarah
