2011 Project 365 – Week Fifty
Oh my word what a busy weekend! I can’t believe I’m just now getting to my P365 post.
Sunday, December 4th
On Sunday we went to the Zen Mass at our old church in Cincinnati. It’s a contemplative Eucharist offered on Sunday nights. In Advent each year the Zen Mass is dedicated to the memory of the person who basically started it – he died about 6 years ago and we have this service in his honor. Dr. M played the dulcimer for the service. Of course we forgot our camera, so I took this picture after we got home.
Monday, December 5th
Dr. M took some picture of the flooding in the area – we had a LOT of rain in the first part of the week.
Tuesday, December 6th
Dr. M saw a coyote!
A flock of seagulls in one of the flooded areas. In the middle of Ohio. What will they think of next?
Wednesday, December 7th
We got a little bit of snow on Wednesday. If you’d like to see what it looked like this time last year, go here.
I love this picture – I know it’s in the other post I just sent you to, but I wanted to share it again.
The Tax Time Pig is ready for Christmas.
Sheep on top of a hay roll. Makes me laugh every time.
Thursday, December 8th
State of the Bug. To find out what it’s all about, go here.
Dr. M took a lot of great pictures today (and the rest of the week). You should check out his post here. I decided to put a couple of the ones for today on my blog too:
Friday, December 9th
The last osage orange. Looks kind of surreal, doesn’t it?
Really, if you’re afraid of birds you should avoid these pictures!
Saturday, December 10th
What a crazy day! I had a 6 hour training at church, and Dr. M had graduation. He drove by to check out Mr. Buffalo on his way home.
Then that evening we drove to Delaware, Ohio to see the Columbus City Ballet School’s presentation of the Children’s Nutcracker. I have a friend whose niece was in the production, & since Dr. M & I had never seen it we decided to go. On the way there we saw this ginormous orange orb in the distance. I thought it was the sunset reflecting on a water tower. Dr. M was laughing at me when I finally figured it out. Here’s my, um, not quite successful attempt to capture the phenomenon.
And here’s Dr. M’s much better attempt. By the time we got the picture it has shrunk considerably – just minutes before this it was just HUGE.
Here we are at the ballet – we thought we were the stuff.
And here’s Vanessa. She did a great job!
There were a lot of very young children in the production – they were just so cute. We had a fabulous time!
Go to Sara’s blog here to see the blogs of all the other Project 365 participants. Have a great week!
Most of our photos are taken with a 12 megapixel Nikon D5000 DSLR, using a 55-200mm zoom lens. This is the camera that Dr. M takes with him most days. We also take pictures with our old reliable 7 megapixel Canon Powershot A710. This is the camera that the Bug uses most of the time. If you’re interested in which camera was used for a particular shot, just ask!
