The subject today is Sports & Games in your town...Well here in Coeur d Alene there is a beautiful lake ...so there is lots of boating! The Iron Man comes through every June..more pictures of that to come..

Of course there is lots of swinging...

Runners everywhere...it seems according to the American Lung Association.. Coeur d Alene is third in the country for clean smog free air!! So a good place to run!!

Of course this is the critter game of the season..singing his little heart out for a mate!!

There is always bee chasing..

Oh we can't forget twirling..

or juggling..we love juggling here...

Some serious bug hunting...giggle..

What is Spring with out chalk...

Or Bubbles..we love bubbles too!

Friday My Town Shoot Out - Trees for Earth Day


Here are a few Spring tree shots...I adore trees..but realized I tend to take close up shots rather that many of the whole tree. I will work on that!

I loved the fact that these silver maples were fall colors as they popped out for spring. If you double click on the picture you can see the little glittery edges.


Have a wonderful weekend all, Sarah

A Few That Pleased My Eye..

Friday My Town Shoot Out...


One shot that makes me smile and why....

I have to have some serious dental work on Thursday and will be out of commission for the rest of the weekend..so I am posting early!
I looove this shot..still one of my favorite pics. This little man was with his family at the Iron Man Race last June. He so wanted to pet this Chocolate Doodle. Of course the sweet pooch was thrilled to oblige. As soon as this little fellow got his fingers in the fur he melted into a bowl full of squeals and giggles. Ahhh puppy love!
Have a great weekend all, Sarah

Friday My Town Shootout...


This weeks theme is Bokeh..here is Wikipedias definition...."In photography, bokeh is the blur,[1][2] or the aesthetic quality of the blur,[3][4][5] in out-of-focus areas of an image, or "the way the lens renders out-of-focus points of light."[6] Differences in lens aberrations and aperture shape cause some lens designs to blur the image in a way that is pleasing to the eye, while others produce blurring that is unpleasant or distracting— "good" or "bad" bokeh, respectively.[1] Bokeh occurs for parts of the scene that lie outside the depth of field. Photographers sometimes deliberately use a shallow focus technique to create images with prominent out-of-focus regions."








Have a wonderful weekend all!! Namaste, Sarah
