Have you ever seen the sunset after a storm? It's probably God's way of telling us something

One rainy day

a few of my favorite things, Children Photography, Color, Season, Uncategorized

Could there be anything more magical

than to sit and watch the rain

in silence,

I used to wonder.

Then one rainy day

I watched not the rain

but the awe in her eyes, her beaming face

as she stood by the door

gazing at the rain.






And all else

seemed less magical.


When Peacocks Dance . . .

Color, love, Season


I had always heard, that when it rains peacocks dance. I had always been curious to find out if this was true.

So a few days ago on a rainy day, I took my camera to pay some peacocks a visit.

And then I waited as the beautiful creature sat there in all his majesty.


Every time he moved, I felt my heart fill with excitement, ‘He’s going to dance!’

But it kept raining, and I kept waiting with my jacket over my camera to keep it from getting wet.

I had a feeling he didn’t know about the dancing-in-the-rain-peacocks legend, and was quite close to sharing some stories with him.

Even though he enjoyed posing for the camera showing off his beautiful feathers, and came very close to breaking into a dance I’m sure, this peacock did not dance – not for this photographer, not on that rainy day.

And while I had started to doubt if he even knew how to dance, the lady with the crown made her entrance. . .

. . .and he showed me that he might not know the rain dance, but he still did know love.

Food, Lines, Season

Yes, that is a banana slice inside a lemonade ice cube or a Lemonade-Banana-sicle as my 5 -year-old likes to call her creation.

Who makes a simple Popsicle anymore, that’s so last year. Summer of 2010 is going to be fun!


‘Two!’ Umbrellas

Children Photography, Color, Season

She dances in the rain,

jumps in puddles,

in her red boots.

Splish! Splash! Splish!

‘Two!’ she beams,

showing the umbrellas

in the puddle

and in her hands.

‘Two!’ she dances,

making new ripples

in the puddle

on a rainy spring day
