Today’s Photography 101 theme is “Natural World and Leading Lines.” This branch promises the faintest hint of spring…
Our next Photography 101 theme is “big.”
Around here, “big” is a relative term. In today’s photo, we have a big (actually, giant) Costco-sized package of paper towels, a cat (a medium-sized feline model named Gabby), and a small (actually, tiny) toy bird.
Today’s Photography 101 theme is “connect.” Today, I connected with a group of people who love to hike!
I’m a member of the Mid-Atlantic Hiking Group, and this evening’s hike was the first of many weekly hikes at Centennial Park in Ellicott City, Md.. for the 2015 hiking season. The evening was warm, even though there’s still snow on the ground. The snow didn’t deter these intrepid hikers, who were all excited about getting outdoors and connecting with other hikers after a long, cold winter slog!
This afternoon, we visited Brookside Gardens in Wheaton, Md. And while it may look like the photos below were taken at two different times and in two different places, they were all taken today in snowy Maryland. That’s because Brookside Gardens has a conservatory with a beautiful array of tropical flowers and plants.
You can view the photos as a slideshow by clicking one and using the right and left arrows to scroll through them. To close the slideshow, click the x in the upper-left corner
And, if you’re interested in visiting Brookside Gardens, here are their hours and directions, along with a map.
To a cat, bliss is “helping” mom by sitting on the keyboard.
… and getting chin skritches.
Cats are the heart of my home.
I haven’t posted in my blog for a really long time, so I’m kind of rusty! But I recently signed up for a WordPress course called Photo 101, and this is my first course assignment. The theme is “Home.” Please bear with me as I get back up to speed.
Barry and I saw the Amazing Acro-Cats at the Port Tobacco Players Theatre in La Plata, Md., on Sunday, May 5, 2013. I had a really good time, and I thought you might like to see some of the photos.
The Amazing Acro-Cats are a traveling troupe of kitty performers who hail from Chicago. The shows in La Plata helped to benefit the Humane Society of Charles County. The society brought some adoptable cats to the theater.
The multi-talented cats demonstrated spectacular feats of feline agility and style, with assistance from their “chief human,” Samantha Martin. The show culminated with a performance from The Rock Cats, an all-kitty band. Joining the cats onstage were bowling champ, Garfield the Groundhog, and noted percussionist, Gregory Peck the chicken.
If you’re a cat lover — and I mean, who isn’t — you owe it to yourself to see the Amazing Acro-Cats when they visit your town!
