Take a good look. This is Andj. Someday she'll be a well known "Photographer," Theme #233, and you can say you knew her when she was just starting out.
She tagged along while we were working with her big sister on a 4-H photography project. Turns out little sis has an artist's eye for a photo so she was handed a camera and turned loose on the world as well.


The electric fence in the immediate foreground seems a little "Mismatched," Theme #186, against the backdrop of an Amish farmstead.

ORNATE, 149/365

The peacock is the most "Ornate," Theme #215, creature in the zoo.


I wanted a photo of her up in the old tree. She, of course, was far more interested in jumping out of the tree than in posing among the branches. Even though I couldn't stop the jump, I did manage to "Stop the Action," Theme #304.


It's been 18 months since I closed the daycare and our young friends were surprised during a recent visit to discover I don't have a room full of toys and activity supplies at our new home. I did have one of the old "Games We Play," Theme #319, tucked away in a closet.

My sister and her husband have hosted 2 young men this past year through a student foreign exchange program. These boys have become part of our family and we all gathered to say goodbye to them this past weekend. I noticed a pair of Mauricio's Havaianas sitting by the back door and thought how much my sister will miss seeing his favorite "Footwear," Theme #107, scattered around the house.

My sister, brother-in-law and their two sons from a student "Foreign," Theme #109, exchange program. Mikkel and Mauricio came from Denmark and Brazil to spend the last school year as part of our family. We are all so sad to tell them goodbye now.
