365 on hold

Going thru withdrawal. I broke my arm, my shooting arm no less. It's gonna be a long 5-6 weeks! I can't lift my camera yet. Ive tried to use the tripod, but that is tricky with just 1 hand.  takes 10 times longer to get a simple picture. 

Waaaaaaah! My 365 and all other progress is on hold for a while. Ya, the nurse thought he was funny giving me a "fall risk" bracelet.

67/365 Paying it forward...

This image is of a Serenity Prayer bracelet given to me by my very best friend of 40 years.  She gave it to me almost 2 years ago when my dad was diagnosed with advanced stage of metastatic cancer and only had about 5 days until he passed.  Her instructions to me were that when I was feeling hopeless, scared and lost to look at that bracelet, feel it on my arm and know that God would help me and my family through this every step of the way.  

We passed that bracelet back and forth to each other countless times. Whomever was struggling at the moment would put the bracelet on until the moment passed and we felt a little strength come back.  We passed that bracelet back and forth for several months even after my dad passed away.  

I am ready to pass this bracelet on to a friend who is struggling with worry and an uncertain future. I hope that this very simple gift will give her as much comfort and peace as it gave me.

GG Bridge at night


Because his brother went to see that crazy movie "The Conjuring" and he wanted to freak his brother out!


Tiburon at night.  Playing with high ISO on a moving boat.


 My older son, learning to sail.


Ugh. Hitting a wall.  Need to learn/work on composition.  Still feel like I'm getting snap shots.  For every 10 images, I delete 9.  Good part about that is I am much pickier about what I keep-viewing with a more educated eye about exposure, wb etc. Bad news is just hasn't all "clicked" or come together..yet.
SOOC cuz I haven't learned LR yet.
