Photo Funk

These last few weeks I have been in a photo funk :(  We had a dear friend of ours pass away and I just have been feeling out of it.  Today I wanted to get back into my swing and had just had no creative ideas.  So this is just me playing around.  I'll get my groove back, I promise.

A few more macro shots

I couldn't help myself with these new extension tubes for my camera.  In the backyard I noticed more of my plants in bloom and of course the dreaded dandelions in the yard!  Even though these are a weed they sure do make a nice photo as a macro shot.

Where is Yogi the Bear?

We were fortunate enough to take a small vacation to TN.  One of my absolute favorite spots is the Smokey Mountains and Cades Cove.  This time we took along my two step-daughters in hopes that they might get the chance to see a black bear in the wild.  Well, the mountains didn't let me down, we did spot one bear (photo isn't the greatest). 

Our oldest enjoyed the hunt for bear, while the youngest listened to her Ipod in the car and continued to let us know how bored she was. LOL!  A few of my fav photos below.

My step-daughter actually took this of me doing what I love to do best!
