High Above Me

While hanging out on Facebook for a bit to nag ask a few friends to take part in the V7N 30 Day Photography Challenge, it suddenly dawned on me that the sun would be going down soon and I still hadn’t taken a picture for day nine of my own challenge!

Ugggggggh!

So I grabbed a cold Venom Energy and my camera, and ran out the door. My mind was already racing with ideas of what I could shoot quickly. If all else failed, I could always get a shot of the Venom, right?

Have you ever noticed that if you don’t have your camera with you, there are a million shots you want to get, but when you go out LOOKING for one, everything suddenly disappears?

Although I could hear a dove cooing somewhere, the dang thing was definitely hiding out with no intention of letting me off with a quick picture so I could head back into the air conditioning.

As I began to walk, with no particular destination, my thoughts began to relax, allowing me to begin to find beauty, to discover stuff I love.

This beauty just about left me breathless. WOW! I wonder if it is too early to send Santa Claus a letter. I really have been a very good girl this year. HONEST! I would love to take this sweet ride for a spin through the Texas Hill Country as the sun begins to set.

With my one promised picture out of the way, I turned back in the direction of home only to hear that dove again. Looking high above me, I finally found her, as if she was ready to pose for her picture now.

    Loved the shot of the bike and dove. The Venom can was cool too! Interesting how a photo challenge makes you see your own shots. I started a photo a day for 30 days recently and haven’t liked any of my photo’s since then. Ha… things will be better when the sun comes up tomorrow! :-)

    LOLOL! The same thing happened to me the last time I did the 30 day challenge but somewhere in the 2nd week I was suddenly finding new creative ways to shoot. Crossing my fingers that it ends up the same way this time!
