Since I already know what it is, I don't know if it seems like something it's not.  I'll show you the progression, from the (sort-of) beginning to the end result.








Yummy!

Theme ~ A New Beginning

Chosen by Mac.


After a long break, we Headbangers are back!  I'm glad I got out this past week to take some pictures; my camera has sat for quite some time and I really needed to get back out shooting.  To celebrate new beginnings--the new beginning that spring brings--here is the image I used for this week’s theme:


Daffodils in vertical form:


Here are some other signs of a new beginning...


Sun on leaf edge.




Lenten rose.

Blue catmint.

All these were taken on a quick walk at The Morton Arboretum.  I hope you enjoyed this glimpse into spring and the new colorful world of spring!

Danny lying down in the grass, because...??  No idea why I took this...

We took home two Christmas trees...and Danny's head.

Warm homemade granola, when combined with cold milk, clumps together.

Fernando calls this his "gum app."

I bet you have some strange photos stored somewhere, too!

Theme ~ Elections

Chosen by Lew.


What a most interesting and fascinating election we just had...

Here is the image I used for my header:  my second son Jake voting.  I stood way off to the side and used a telephoto lens so as not to disturb other voters.  Although it's illegal to photograph your ballot, it it not illegal (in my state) to bring a camera into the polling place--but you have to be respectful of judges and their wishes!


Here is a "spring" photo getting ready for primaries--our signs were buried in snow!


An old photo; pardon the watermark...


A sample ballot, unmarked--not illegal!


My third son Danny voting in his first election.


And, my fourth son Thomas voting in his first election.  The handicapped booth was the only one open, and they asked if he didn't mind using it.


I'm so thankful that we have the right and the privilege of going into the voting booth and letting our vote be heard.  I'm thankful that I'm not under duress to vote for any particular candidate, and I'm thankful that no matter what anyone says, my vote is never wasted if I've voted my conscience before God!
