Jan 12 - a day at the farm

Well, I finally made it out to my friend Holly's parents farm!!
It was a cold morning and the blustery wind made it worse.
Holly very kindly let me walk around scouring for my letters - but we did find a few other things to shoot too!
Holly's dad was real cute - he pointed out a B he wanted me to find!

Some random shots from the morning....

Doesn't everyone have a cool old firetruck in their fields?

and just a few more...

So I played with some images - ran some filters, textures, etc... to have some fun.
More from the farm yesterday.

early morning 01.07.2010 ....

I bundled up first thing in the morning , before the sun had actually crested the island,to go out and try to take some shots that looked COLD.

I guess it was not really cold enough her to get COLD. No frozen water. No ducks huddled on the shore. No snow. Nothing.

But I did love how the lake looked.

It was full of birds, all over the surface of the lake.

And in the sky.

And the reflections were just so cool looking.

And the lake had a nice pink glow....

Oh My Mahi, good fish tacos

No photo but I had to post.

While my parents were in town we went into Charlotte to stroll the streets. And freeze.

Oh wait, I do have some photos...

Back to the story..

So we popped into the Rockbottom Brewery for lunch. Mom had fish tacos and they looked so good, I knew I was going to have to make some. They had a blue corn tortilla innner shell that crunched and a soft flour out shell to keep them all together. Oh YUM!

I surfed the net and found these:
My Oh Mahi, Thats a Good Fish Taco by Rachel Ray

They rocked! Three thumbs up from Hannah, Chris and myself. I did change some of the ingredients like I used less hot sauce and added more spices as a rub on the fish, but they were pretty darned good.

So go make some.

and how did 2010 get here so fast...

A new year.
Time to get back on the blog wagon.
Not the fritts creative one, but my personal one.

So....back to my photos a day (POTD)
or maybe something from everyday life
or a trip
Picking up my camera.
Playing with my new lens.

Not worrying about going backwards but we will start now, with 2010.

Here we go.

Georgia Aquarium
This fellow and I had a staring contest.

Enroute home....the gps took us to an old Dairy Queen in Gastonia.
This is my photo taken from the inside of the car with the little point and shoot since it was pretty dang cold outside. This is on my "return and take a decent picture" list
