Something Red: HDR Tonka Truck

My sweet lil red pick up from when I was a kid.  Not sure why I still have it all these years later.  It could be due to the fact that I have a hard time letting go of things.  It used to get in everybody’s way when I was a kid, and I got threatened quite a bit that they’d toss it out if I didn’t take care of it.  Little did I know back then that they sucked at keeping such promises. 😉


Looking at these pictures large, rather than the thumbnail is muuch better. I seem to find pink/red flower pictures a bit fussy, it gotta be just right in order to appreciate their beauty.

Something Red: Don Juan Climbing Rose

I don’t typically go out and get the roses in time.  What usually happens is that my mother reminds me repeatedly, until one day I finally go out.  By then I find that all the petals had fallen off and they’ve turned into rose hips.  Which is okay enough, since you can make jam from rose hips.  And tea, if I recall correctly.  But anyway, this time I got to enjoy the multitudes of red, healthy roses, happily welcoming me into their side of the garden. *pats myself on the back*  And then I clipped ’em.  *ouch* And pulled their petals off. *double ouch*  And then we made rose petal jam out of it. *drool* Of course.  At least they were once happy.

Laguna Beach: Goin Home


We tried our best to rush out of there and make it home in time.  But we failed.  It doesn’t matter though.  All that matters is that I got some spectacular-ish sunset pictures.  Pretty amazing given that I was holding the heavy lens in a moving car.  Sometime I rock. 🙂

Corona del Mar: Things are a bit rocky

My favorite part about Corona del Mar, and which is why I saved it for last.  Actually, second to last.  I promise, this is almost over, and then something new!  I’m in love with the rocks at this beach though.  Not a lot of the beaches have rocks, where I’m at, and seeing the water make a splash as the waves crash against the rocks is so much fun. 


Was feeling a bit girly, more than usual, and decided t’was a good day to put some purple eye shadow on.  I’m usually too lazy to do anything more than eyeliner, and if I didn’t feel so blah without eyeliner I wouldn’t even bother with that.
