52 Weeks: The 2012 Edition Mosaic

52/52/2012 The End

Well we made it!  This is "The End" of our cat "Mark", his tail that is.  Had a great Journey, think I'm taking a break for a while.  I do think I'm going to create some mosaics though.  I truly appreciate all of the views, comments and fav's from everyone.

47/52/2012 Giving Thanks

During this time of Thanksgiving I'm thankful for the parents I've been blessed with.  I'm so thankful I could care for my Father during the last years of his life.  Happy Thanksgiving to everyone.

40/52/2012 Close Up

This is something from the 1940's, I think.  Looks good on black.

39/52/2012 Space Suit

This weeks theme is to break some photography rules.  Here is my submission.  Pretty obvious, no head, hands, feet cut off and a great reflection.  This is SOOC or my smartphone in this case.

This is Alan Shepard's suit.  We visited Orlando, Florida this week and went to the Kennedy Space Center.  Had a great time.

This shot is sort of eerie to me.

37/52/2012 Another New Knife

Gift I received from my Brother for my Birthday this month.  I used the "vintage" setting on my phone and the "porta high" filter in Photoscape and some other minor adjustment to achieve this "faux film" shot.

33/52/2012 Brandi's Urn

This is Brandi's Urn.  I'm going to be getting the photo that I used for Her memoriam for the frame.  Not the best shot but...

Brandi - November 14th, 1999 - July 20th, 2012


We will remember when we first got you we fell in love with you
We remember you biting our arms while playing with you
We remember you chewing up everything in the house and forgiving you
We remember you jumping as high as the door frame
We remember you playing Frisbee and that ball you chased around the yard
We remember walking down the street and you pulling us, we're out of breath and you're slobbing and eyes bulging out
We remember taking you to all the family to meet them and them you
We remember you greeting everyone at the door especially the pizza man
We remember you barking at nothing at all
We remember you using the picnic table as your throne
We remember you and Dad wrestling on the bed and the living room floor
I remember you greeting Dad at the door dancing and tail wagging a mile a minute
I remember you waiting for Dad to drop a crumb on the floor so you could lick that spot for 30 minutes
We remember all we done to love you and care for you
We remember how much joy you brought to our home and our lives

We will love you and
we will miss you so
Very Very Much

Love Mom and Dad

26/52/2012 New Knife

Congratulations to everyone, hard to believe we are half way through this year.  This is my new work/pocket knife.  It's a CRKT.  Only about a 3 inch blade.  I think this qualifies as "fill the frame". :D

24/52/2012 Silly Face Brandi

Brandi is usually within inches of where I am, let alone miles.  I like the face she was making while I rubbed her head today.

22/52/2012 Theme Park Silhouette

This is a redux of an earlier shot.  You probably cannot see the earlier one because I haven't re-upped my account.  Had an entirely different idea but procrastinated and couldn't get it pulled off.  Maybe later.

21/52/2012 Know Joe

1.  I am NOT Bald, (yet, anyway).
2.  I use "Just For Men" (not recently enough though).
3.  I get bored with doing things especially after I've reached my goal.
4.  I can repair just about anything.
5.  I'll buy "big ticket" items without a thought, but have problems buying inexpensive things I need.

07/52/2012 Three Phones

Best I could do for "rule of thirds" theme.  These were in the mall where Doctor R (Steve) has his office.  (Doing fine just a regular BMW payment visit. lol sorry Dr. R.)

06/52/2012 The Light

I find verses 3 and 9 to be quite informative.  My Wife's Bible.  My hard-copy had this on different pages and I usually use e-Sword on my computer.

05/52/2012 Dancing Flower

This is a solar dancing flower.  It weaves and bounces when exposed to light.
