Fireworks at Lake Pleasant


I hadn’t had my camera for very long and was able to talk Ben into going with me to Lake Pleasant for the fireworks. They had a country music stage, lots of games and rides for the kids, and plenty of porta potties.  I think I took at least 500 photos.

We have geckos in our house. They reside in the attic and probably inside the walls. Every year there is a new batch of youngsters who hang out by the kitchen window because the kitchen light attracts bugs. I can hear the little ones chirping when I go outside. Every once in a while we see a baby gecko in the house, and we try to catch them and take them outside.

Trying out Viveza and ColorEfex filters from Nik. They worked really well on this photo from my 2009 cross-country trip.

Who could ask for more?

One of my goals for the next few months is to write more. Back in January I made an editorial calendar for this blog to help stay on track. It has been a struggle.
