As I was viewing his pictures that he took, I came across this one. This boy who hates it when I try to take a picture, hands his camera over and poses like this in the middle of a hotel. So silly! (I had to convert to black and white becuase it was sooooo yellow, but I thought the green would be a cool pop!)
Check out tons more smiles at i heart faces!

We spent a lot of time out and about on Saturday, we even got a new tree for the backyard. Maybe I will share some of those photos in a bit. Here are a few more of the shots from the flower field. Some of the last ones were taken with my iPhone!.
You just don't see these that often anymore.
I am really into this shape against the sky. (Wait until you see some of the Saturday pics)
It's been awhile since I've shared some sunflare!
Another hard picture to take. I was actually going to walk down, but stopped.
I found the most perfect climbing trees.
And a few more! You can view them all here. Newest are at the bottoem.

Any photog friends out there wanting to go on an i heart faces photowalk in June, here's a link! I'll be attending the Dallas one, but man, if I could figure out a way to Sacramento, I would!! (The Sacromento walk is being led by the always wonderful Katrina!!) I just know it's going to be tons of fun!! They'll be in twenty cities, so if Dallas isn't your area check it out there might be one close to you! I just can't wait!!

So I have to tell you: I love this picture. Love it with every fiber of my being, yet I did not choose it as yesterday's photo of the day. I really don't know why either. I guess I just felt that the "full" picture would be better. But this close-up, for what ever reason, I just love. Ok, now I have you guys all prepared for one magnificent photo....
Check out the other entries this month!!

It's raining and has been all weekend which pretty much sucks! I had planned earlier in the week to go to the Fort Worth Botanic Garden this weekend in hopes of getting some flowers in bloom. And then the rain came. There was supposed to be a brief break in the rain around mid day so I decided that I was going to go to anyway. It never stopped raining, but luckily it was just a drizzle (why does Snoop Dog carry an umbrella? For drizzle...yeah, I'm a dork). I finally got to use the "all weather" feature on my camera bag, however I found just keeping it in my jacket was way easier. Despite the rain, there were a fair number of the people out and about. Even a few professional portrait sessions, which was kind of weird. To check out all of the photos, you can click here.
Quick view of the other "5 star" photos. (Again you can click here to see them larger.)
A photowalk by the numbers:
265 Pictures Taken
33 "5 star" photos
3 serious POTD contenders
1 hour walk

Robert E Lee park in Uptown Dallas. The thing I love about my Friday photowalks is that I get to see things that I probably would never have seen before. I've worked in the same office building for four years and I have seen more of the city in these last four months than I did the previous four years. Take today's park for example, it's three miles from my office, but I promise you I've never seen it before today! So anyway, I hope you guys are enjoying the Dallas area parks as much as I am!
This was the runner up and is just so sad to me. At most of the parks around Dallas you can do benches, trees, sculptures, or other random cool things in memory of a loved one. The bench directly beside this tree was in memory of a guy. I was talking to the lawn care guy and he said every week the wife brings out a new picture since usually someone walks off with the frame. So sad.
Third runner up. I love this one so much, but then I really love rustic things and then when I added the sepia - perfection!
The rest are in no particular order. This is the Robert E Less statue that fronts the park.
The stream running through the park.
This is one of the memorial benches, pretty cool, huh?
Ok, there's a story here. I love John Stewart, love him. Anyway, the other night he was talking about the US and made a joke that we can't have nice things. You'll have to trust me that it was funny. Anyway, the bluebonnets are blooming, but you can't get to them to take a picture since they've put up these temporary fences. Apparently we can't have nice things... or so that's what this little fence reminded me of!
You can see downtown from this view!
This is a scale model of Robert E Lee's original home. I think you can have weddings and stuff here. Really cool.
The back side of the building.
The open air gazebo looking straight up. It was really overcast!
On the ground. I love the ground shots.
Finally a sort of front view.
I can't resist flowers!
Couldn't resist making bookends! This is another view of the sewer cover!
Until next week!!
