Trying to decide which of my hobbies to represent was hard. Cooking? Baking? Gardening? Beekeeping? Raising chickens? Preserving? Brewing? Reading cookbooks? Eating? Then, it dawned on me that these things share a common thread - food. I spend my days consumed by it, and consuming it. It's my passion, my work, and my pleasure.

This handsome fella is Blue, our Blue Orpington rooster. I'm public enemy number one at the moment as far as he's concerned, so it was quite a challenge to get a photo where he wasn't chasing me or trying to gouge my eyes out.

I've started a new photography challenge with some friends and family. This one only involves weekly photos, thankfully, each one based on a theme. Here are the two I've done so far.
1/52 - Show Off Your City
2/52 - Week of the Selfie

I could have killed my husband when he broke the bank and got me a "real" camera for Christmas last year; little did I know the impact his generous act would have on my life. Learning how to use it (through this project) was the least I could do. Now I see things differently as I move through my days; there are beautiful things literally everywhere.
I spent this last day cruising the city, hubby at my side, camera in hand, looking for just the right shot. In the end, we sat on Third Beach, photographing birds, sand, and waves, watching the sun go down. Even once I thought I had "the one" on my memory card, and was headed to the car, I couldn't resist snapping just one more (you're looking at it).
Thank you, Chuck, for giving me so many amazing gifts.
