Fingerprint Friday

The Hairy Woodpecker is my Fingerprint from God today...I was on the side deck and heard a noise and there they were..I think one is a baby. They were so busy with the tree stump, I ran for my camera. Couldn't get any closer, but happy to get a few pictures of them. What a beautiful Fingerprint.

Be sure to check out other Fingerprints at Pampering Beki's blog..

A Fun Picture..

You actually have to click on the picture to enjoy it..The little dot is a bird chasing a crow..I happened to be on the back deck and heard this noise, looked up and there you have it.
That bird chased the crow across the yard and then some. Lucky I got the picture.

Good Picture For a Scary Movie.

This picture of the sky, reminds me of a Sherlock Holmes movie..The sun was going down and all the clouds were in the sky, making it very dark and sinister.
You never know what you will see in our beautiful sky..Just love to look at it.
Till next time, keep looking up..
You know, I bet a lot of you think that saying I always end my blog with is about the sky..Guess what? It isn't..
It is said to help us keep a positive outlook..So many times, it is hard to look up when all is falling down..

Shadow Shot Sunday.

As the sun was setting in the back of the house..the deck had a few nice shadows..but my favorite is Little Glow Worm..Youngest daughter had a baby and she bought her a Glow Worm..well, I hunted down daughter's Glow Worm when she was young. Took a picture to send her and there was the little shadow. Gosh, he is a cute little toy and would you believe he still lights up and didn't have to change the battery..Just remember youngest daughter is 29..
Be sure to check out Hey Harriet's blog for great shadow shots..

Fingerprint Friday.

When the sky is hazed and thin cirrus clouds are in the sky, usually there is a rainbow/circular halo around the sun.
What a Fingerprint from God this makes. I was very excited to catch this beautiful
picture the other day. I just happened to be on the back deck and looked up. To get the full circle, I covered the sun ..Never, ever look into the sun.
Hope you enjoy this wonderful Fingerprint..I can say, it made my day.

My Favorite Picture..

My favorite picture, that I ever took, was for a Fingerprint Friday.
It came from a series of shots off the back deck.
I decided to try and do a watercolor of what I see and here it is.
To me it was a glimpse of heaven and so thankful to have caught it with my camera.

Shadow Shot Sunday.

Caught a few shadows home. The den had light coming in and thought it was an interesting shadow.

Mint growing up through the deck..Now that is different.

Then another deck shadow. Just put the hanging basket up and didn't even take the tag off..saw the shadow and ran for camera.

Be sure to check out Hey Harriet's blog for other shadows. It is amazing how interesting shadows are.

Fingerprint Friday.

I took this picture a couple of years ago..but I remember it, like it was yesterday. I was talking to this cricket and asking him to pose for me and sure enough..he did. What a cute Fingerprint from God. I was so thankful getting these pictures and so close up..Now if he broke out in the song,"When You Wish Upon A Star"that would have put me over the top..Ha, ha..

Beautiful Poppies..

These poppies are so beautiful and they come back every year.
I don't have to do a thing for them..lucky for the poppies..
Will give myself some credit..I took the seeds from poppies, years ago in Vermont and bought them here. How I managed to get them to grow, I still don't know..but here they are. What a happy sight in the spring and I look forward to them every year. Thank you God, because you took care of them, knowing I don't do well in the garden.
Till next time, keep looking up.

Shadow Shot Sunday.

On the ride home have a few different pictures. True the first picture is more reflections..but a few shadows are in there. Then the road with tree shadows..Now just think of traveling this road in winter. What a nightmare. Start up the icy hill only to slide backwards. Thank heavens I don't travel that way in winter anymore..

Fingerprint Friday.

The pictures are a bit dark..but you still can see the beauty.

No matter where you live, there are always Fingerprints from God. I am trying to capture as many as I can. The more I look, the more I find.
Isn't that almost like the story about gifts.?.The more you use, the more they multiply.
