Today was Bear's last laser treatment.  We hope.  Here is my husband holding him right after the vet finished.  As you can see we had to wear special glasses during the process and Bear wanted no part of me taking a picture.

August 20. 2015

After I got the blog up and running again I had to housesit and dogsit for 10 days.  Since the dogsitting involved 6 dogs I wasn't able to keep up the blog.  The funny thing is that at the same time I took a ton of photos but they were photos I could not post here as they of kids at our church's vacation bible school and I didn't have permission to use them here. 

Last Sunday my photography group had their annual picnic which included a scales and tails presentation.  It was a lot of fun to learn about the Barn Owl and Great Horned Owl.  Here are a picture of each from the day.


This is the Barn Owl.


Below is the Great Horned Owl.

Tonight at the Baker Park Bandshell was Robert Eric's tribute to the piano man, Billy Joel.  Beautiful night with wonderful music can't ask for more than that.  Here are a couple of pictures from the concert.  I really wish the woman wasn't stand right in the center but not much I can do about it.

I have been baking a bunch this week getting ready to host coffee hour at our church on Sunday.  Today was three baking stations for mini muffins.  Here are two.


The top one was for corn muffins and the bottom picture was for blueberry muffins. 

The last batch I made was banana, coconut, nut muffins, my favorite.

All in all a yummy day.

I had to walk downtown for a meeting today so I had the opportunity to photograph this building that I really like.  I love the randomness of the white rubbing off the brick.



It seems this week I am intrigued by the shop signs of downtown Frederick.  Here is another.

We have been talking about walking to church and today was the day.  Hot and humid, why not? Let me count the ways why not but since it was my suggestion I will keep it to myself...for once.
Here are my photos from the walk.

First up is the sign outside Firestone's Market.  Pay attention to the bottom portion of the sign, it says it all.


Next is the mural on Lord Nickens Way.  

Lastly I have seen this big chicken from a distance but never close up.  I like him!  I want one.

Today I decided that I would just get in the car and drive until something caught my eye.  Today that was a tree that had rotted and fallen over as well as a fern.  I enjoyed the textures and colors.  I purposely kept the top photo darker - for some reason I liked it darker than lighter.  Tomorrow I might prefer the lighter, that is what keeps photography interesting.
