Weekly Pet Share and Sunday Selfies

You might recognize this little guy. I used his picture as a backdrop for a quote I posted for Nurturing Thursday a couple of weeks ago.  He’s very shy but he now waits patiently almost every morning for me to bring him his breakfast.  He still doesn’t let me get near him.  I’ve tried just standing by my front door to photograph him up close but he won’t come up on the wall if I remain outside.  It’s so adorable the way he just peeks over the edge of the wall to make sure I’m “gone” before jumping up to eat.  The second photo and the video were taken while I was inside my house so the quality is not the best.  All were taken with my iPhone5.

I am greeted with this adorable face almost every morning!Shy Guy

And every morning, it’s the same routine. I’m required to leave the area and he makes sure I’m gone by peeking over the wall.Peeking Cat

Then when the coast is clear (he can’t see me anymore), it’s time to eat!

Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge: Black and White

The third Monday at Lens and Pens by Sally is black and white.  I had my car into the dealership a few weeks ago for some work and this statue was in a corner of the waiting area.  It was taken with my iPhone5.


Then I took a few liberties with pho.to editing!


Then I really had some fun and made this gif.  Trouble is, I couldn’t get it to load as a gif on WP.  Oh, well, you get the idea.rain


One Word Photo Challenge: Autumn

Here in central Florida, we don’t get much of an autumn (or winter or spring for that matter!).  But sometimes there are tells like when the temperature averages about 20 degrees cooler than summer.  For example, our morning temps are in the 60s and afternoon highs are in the upper 70s.  And the humidity finally drops to livable. Here are some more autumn tells for central Florida:

This one is pretty much everywhere — PUMPKINS, PUMPKINS, PUMPKINS!!Pumpkins_Fotor

The changing of the leaves on the trees — okay, so there are no brilliant reds, oranges, or yellows.Autumn leaves_Fotor

And many of our trees shed their leaves and blooms this time of year, too!

And, last but not least, all of the autumn decor appears everywhere! Of course, along with the autumn decor, come October we’re seeing Christmas decorations all in the stores now. sigh….scarecrow_Fotor

I must admit, though, after having grown up in Kentucky, I really do miss the bright colors of the fall foliage.


Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge: Macro

The second Monday of the month challenge at Lens and Pens by Sally is MACRO.  I took this close-up of part of our rubber tree after a heavy rain using my iPhone5.
