365 Project: May 2011 Mosaic

A Mosaic of Photos from May of 2011!  Congratulations Everyone!

151/365 Well Done!

Congratulation to all that have made it to the end of the fifth month and beyond.  I was really giving 'thumbs up' because of the great job I think I did on the grass, but I thought everyone deserved a 'Big Thumbs Up', so here it is!  (And I know the side of the house and the road are blown out and I've cut off my pinkie but that's just the way it's been going lately.)

143/365 POTC Movie Poster

Had a routine visit with Doctor R (Steve) this am.  His office is in a mall.  Looked out the door while I was waiting and saw this.  A bit of glare but the best I could do.

139/365 Stumped

Shot this through the front door glass.  A little sharping and back-lighting gave me this.  Sort of reminds me of a painting.

138/365 Pirates Of The Curio Cabinet

Just having some fun on this cold rainy day.  I think the coin was given out at the showing of "Blackbeard's Ghost" way, way back in the day.

128/365 Happy Mother's Day

These are the pink silk roses my Brother placed at the grave of Our Mother and Father today.  Our Father past away 5 months ago today.  Our Mother passed away in 1979. sooc.

127/365 Five Months

My Father died 5 months ago, December the 8th, 2010 (and I just realized this is a day early but I'm going to use it anyway).  This shot didn't come out the way I wanted.  It's difficult to see what I'm try to convey.  This is a shot inside the side door of my van.  The running board, step and the floor board.  The two blue spots helped me to explain to my Father how to get in.  He had dementia and could easily navigate normal stairs however when confronted with this he became confused.  So I place the two blue spots as a guide to help him see where to step as I explained to him what to do.  I sure do miss Him.

125/365 Wing-Ding

Chased this little guy about 5 minutes.  This is only one of two shot I got of him.  The other was to out of focus to use.  Not sure what happened to his wing but it didn't slow him down at all.  I believe this is a Pearl Crescent.

Two green bottle flies, Phaenicia sericata or Lucilia sericata, sharing a dandelion!

122/365 Yellow Bug

Infestation of little yellow bugs on my counter.  Probably trying to escape the steady rain we've had all day.  Best I could do, but I do sort of like it.

121/365 Blue Pansy

That is what I believe this to be.  Pouring down rain on the way home.  Wanted a flower for this first shot for May.  Saw these growing right outside of a florist near the cemetery.  Knew I would have to settle for whatever I got, hence the soft focus/blur.  I'll certainly be glad when it stops raining longer than 1 day.  sooc.
