I was kind of disappointed that it was cloudy on the solstice but we decided to make the best of it and go out and take some pictures.

We left after 1:00 am…

My son, Jacob (a friend), and I went out shooting together.

We drove all the way out to Captain Cook State Park. The skyline was beautiful.

Today I was reading an article over at SS by Tracey Clark on the subject of bokeh, one of my favorite subjects. I decided to look through my stream and see what I had, actually I was thinking about this last night since today is Bokeh Wednesday. I found a lot of shots and it is interesting to see where one finds a shot with bokeh.

I was on a walk and the woods were covering me but on the side of the trail there was this beam of light and I thought it would be interesting to see if it would create some bokeh.

Char, my collaborating buddy over at ramblins, awarded me the Zombie Chicken Award. Here is the story behind the zombie:
zombie_chicken_award1

“The blogger who receives this award believes in the Tao of the zombie chicken – excellence, grace and persistence in all situations, even in the midst of a zombie apocalypse. These amazing bloggers regularly produce content so remarkable that their readers would brave a raving pack of zombie chickens just to be able to read their inspiring words. As a recipient of this world-renowned award, you now have the task of passing it on to at least 5 other worthy bloggers. Do not risk the wrath of the zombie chickens by choosing unwisely or not choosing at all…”

I love all my blog peeps and I have more than five, way more than five, but I decided to play along and share some of my new faves.

*1 Kristybee…the blog. I was so excited to see that she started a blog, I am a huge fan of her photography and I knew she would be a great blogger. You will have to check her out.

*2 Maternal Lens This blog is a collaboration of five women who are mothers, photographers, and bloggers. They select a photo of the day and have random giveaways, it is really a fun blog.

*3 elle moss has to be one of my top 10 photographers of all time and I just discovered she has a blog! Where have I been???? She has another blog, diary of a mod housewife.

*4 Kat Braman Photography, I have been a fan of her work for awhile now and I love her blog. It is fairly new but she has been around flickr for awhile.

*5 Paper Cameras I recently found this blog and I love the photography and she shares some of her finds with her readers. I am fairly new to this blog and I am already smitten.
