44. Red, White and Blue

I have become more and more grateful over the last few years for the men and women who serve our country by joining the military.

Recently a very close friend lost his life while serving in Afghanistan. It really it our community hard. He was very well known in our small Indiana town. He was always making people smile with his goofiness. He was a great athlete. And he was my friend since kindergarten.

I would like to remember all the service people who give their lives so selflessly with my photo this week. I am very proud to be an American and very thankful for our service people who are working so hard to protect all of our freedoms.

COWBOY BOOTS!! I love the country and everything that has to do with it. The calm and quiet atmosphere, seeing all the stars, the open space, corn fields, animals, riding horses, barns, and so on. Its a way of life and I love it!

40. The Wheels Go Round

40. The Wheels Go Round

Made an adventure out of trying to take this picture. Kept thinking of where I could find a parked train. Living in a small town with train tracks, we always hear trains coming and going. When my daughter was about a year and a half, she would always listen for a train and say “Mommy, the CHOO CHOO!”. I loved hearing her say that. Now I can’t wait for my son to start talking so my daughter and I can teach him to listen for the “CHOO CHOO”.


18. Over My Head

18. Over My Head

Had some outdoor fun with my little munchkin. Thought this fit the theme well :).


Thank you for stopping by my blog and viewing my comments and photographs.  Beginning soon, I will be attempting to publish one photograph per week for 52 weeks and each photograph will be based upon 52 pre-determined themes.  A list of the themes are at the top of this page on the “Themes” tab.  The themes were decided upon by my Mom two of her good friends who will also be participating in the 52-week photo challenge.  Some of the themes are fairly simple and some not so simple but our goal during this challenge will be to think outside the box and allow our photographs to reflect our creativeness and interpretations of each weekly theme.  With each photograph posted, I will go into detail telling you why I thought my photograph satisfied each weekly theme.  If you are up for a good challenge while at the same time using your camera to create thought provoking images, I would welcome you into this 52-week, fun-filled photo journey.  It’s going to be challenging, but what good things in life aren’t challenging?  Stay tuned…my journey starts soon.
