Sunday’s Pics and Other Random Stuff

Last night, SmugMug was apparently having some site issues that prevented me from getting to my pics to post.

Those of you who have followed me for a while will recognize the theme that seems to emerge this time of the year – the plant photos.   I can’t help it.  Between the new foliage and the new macro lens, I definitely have a subject I enjoy shooting.

It had been raining a bit before I took these pics, then the sun came out in a rare appearance.  The lighting was perfect.  These are all straight out of the camera.

The yellow is perfect, in my opinion.

Saturday, G and I went to a wine bar and watched belly dancers and burlesque style dancing as well.  It was quite entertaining to see the various styles of bell dancers.  There were some women who were almost acrobatic in how they were doing their dances – their flexibility and strength were amazing.

Others came out and teased the crowd.  And the live music that accompanied some of the dancers was great.  My only regret was not bringing along my camera.  The lighting was great – and would have made for some fabulous photos.  Next time.

This phenomenon is so totally true.  No matter how much you say “it’s silly” or “it doesn’t matter” – the more you realize a part of you doesn’t think its silly and it does matter.  Sometimes emotions are like a wave – you just have to ride it – not fight it.  Easier said than done somedays.

And I love this feeling:

May everyone’s monday be filled with those random remembering 🙂

    Trying hard to not care about how silly things are, but losing the battle and remembering/smiling like an idiot. 😉

  2. I like the flowers. ^_^ And smiling like an idiot is what makes days easier to get through at times. 😛

    Veronica’s brother is a well-known bellydance drummer, he tours the country performing and giving workshops for aspiring musicians. Whenever I see a blog post about someone seeing a bellydance performance, I wonder if he was there.

    I’m ready for spring, it’s still too early for plant photos here, they’re all still dormant.

    Great pics as always!
