"Celebrate the happiness that friends are always giving, make every day a holiday and celebrate just living!."
This will be our last Monday Photo Shoot for 2011! I am taking a little time off during the holiday season to catch my breath a bit. Things have been busy behind the scenes of Ellipsis, including the gift of a new camera (Fujifilm Finepix S2950) from my hubby Alan! So, while I am getting to know the ins and outs of the new toy, I will be busy out and about snapping away and thinking of you! Take lots of photos during the holidays, as you know, PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT!
See you back here on Monday, January 30th 2012
EMPS #153: HERE COME THE HOLIDAYS.
December has a ton of holidays, and ready or not, HERE COME THE HOLIDAYS! So, show me what you have to do to get ready for them. For this assignment, I don't want to see decorations, I want to see the boxes that they are stored in. I want to see someone up on a ladder hanging decorative lights. I want to see a parks and recreations staff putting a Christmas tree in place, or hanging holiday banners on street lamps. Let's see all the work that goes into making the HOLIDAYS sparkle!
Extra Credit: BOWS. It's a simple one this week for the Extra Credit portion of the assignment. Show me BOWS. Any color, any style, I just want to see some pretty BOWS.

A cloud does not know why it moves in just such a direction and at such a speed... It feels an impulsion... this is the place to go now. But the sky knows the reasons and the patterns behind all clouds, and you will know, too, when you lift yourself high enough to see beyond horizons.
EMPS #152: Clouds
I have been a cloud watcher since I was a little girl. Always fascinated by the shapes, and colors and different types of clouds. I sat and pondered why some moved slower than others, and wondered what it might be link to ride on one. Where did clouds go when the passed by? How does a cloud die? It was always so interesting to me. When I took up photography as a creative outlet, clouds became even more fascinating to me. I had hopped for some cloudy conditions this past week, but alas it was not to be. So, here are some clouds from the archives. These are my among my very favorite cloud photos, hope you enjoy them to!
