2013 Project 365 – Week Sixteen
We are moving into the season of a ridiculous number of photos. I’m glad that I never even tried to limit myself to one picture per day because at this point I’d probably just have to throw darts to pick my favorite – ha!

This week really is all about the birds. Here are some from our back yard. I tried to do a collage that I liked, but I ended up just wanting to leave these pictures by themselves.

Dr. M took some pictures on his way home from work (I know, he never does that).
And here is the man himself doing one of his favorite things.
This grackle is wondering if the man with the camera is ever going to go away!

Another blooming tree.
Cardinal in the back yard.
I took these pictures in the bathroom at work. I think the new soap dispensers are ALARMING! I was wondering what in the world until I sorted out what they were. And the name of this toilet paper? Let’s just say that there isn’t really any truth in advertising here.
The State of the Bug: Photoshopped! I had Mount Vesuvius on my chin this week (trust me – it had calmed down considerably by the time I took this picture!). I thought it would be interesting to see what the blemish eraser feature on PicMonkey would do. And then, for fun, I decided to go the rest of the way with a much more flattering filter. So, the Bug in the raw, the Bug with MV erased, & the Bug ready for her (photoshopped) close-up. [Note: click on the picture to make it bigger - you can't get the full effect of the volcano otherwise]

Around the yard – our miniature rose is ready for its spring rebirth.

More squirrel antics.
Another blooming tree (ho-hum – ha!).
A killdeer! We hadn’t ever gotten a picture of one before – cool!
Red-winged blackbird singing his heart out.

Dr. M & I went to see his school’s production of Spamalot (yes, this is on my 50x50 list). It was a total hoot – I thoroughly enjoyed it. And they did such a good job. I got a picture of the Lady of the Lake, aka Guinevere, and King Arthur (looking kingly beside Dr. M).
Go to Mamma Fran’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. He also takes pictures with our old reliable 7 megapixel Canon Powershot A710. The Bug uses our new Nikon Coolpix S6200 most of the time. If you’re interested in which camera was used for a particular shot, just ask!
