Here are the 5 newest pictures for the June Photo Challenge
June 6th – Books. Since I couldn’t choose just a few books, I took a picture of my favorite spot in our office. This is my bookshelf with all my favorite books and knick-knacks. There are 3 more in the room with more books and knick-knacks, but all of those aren’t mine! We love books in our family!
June 7th -High Angle – I trapped my cute little model in his playpen and stood on my coffee table for this shot. I’m sure he was trying to figure out why I’m standing on the furniture like and idjit! lol
June 8th – Sunset – This was a Wednesday night and it was just me and the boys. We had some terrible thunderstorms roll through our area, so I wasn’t sure if I was going to be able to get a sunset shot being alone with the 2 kids and the storms. This was taken after I got both kids bathed and into bed, after the 2nd storm blew through (the first was complete with hail!) Our house location doesn’t lend itself well to good sunset pictures, but I quickly snapped this shot as the sun was sinking below our neighbor’s garage.
June 9th – Fresh Fruit – Fruit doesn’t tend to last long in our house. I haven’t been shopping in nearly a week and there was only 1 kiwi, 2 strawberries and a few apples left in the fridge.
June 10th – This is a woodpecker in our ornamental cherry tree in our front yard. I have fond memories of this bird. It’s not a real bird, you see. Our former neighbors hung this bird in a big tree in their backyard, one that I could see from my kitchen window. I spent a good long time attempting to take a good photograph of it before it flew away…when it didn’t move for over an hour…it dawned on me it was fake. We had a good laugh over it. Well, our neighbors moved to a new house a few weeks ago and gave me the bird. We hung it in the cherry tree and now when I see it, I think of them. They were awesome neighbors, but I have high hopes that the new neighbors will be just as nice. A bonus is that they have a little girl who is only 3 days younger that Fidget!
