Pool Reflections

I shot this during a break in the action at my daughter's swim meet this past weekend at the Beaumont YMCA in Lexington, Ky. Originally, I was just looking at the lane lines for composition, and thought that might be interesting, but after I looked at it on the computer, I think the reflection and the thin row of just feet at the top makes it kind of interesting.

Ready to Swim

My daughter swims for the Ashland Area YMCA, and here she is waiting for her turn during a weekend meet in Paris (Kentucky, not France).

Nature's ice sculptures

You'll want to check out the bigger version of this shot by clicking on it. During Sunday's freezing rain, all the plants in our yard became encased in ice. However, after this one melted a little, the leaf that was inside fell down, leaving just an empty ice shell shaped like the leaf. Pretty neat.

Here's a detail from a sculpture piece. It's supposed to resemble a bird, but I've had a few people comment that it looks like part of some type of medieval battle axe.

A Winter Flower

Since it's all gray, gloomy and rainy out today (at least here where I am), thought I'd dig back into the summer photos and find a nice flower to post.

I love my Pez dispenser collection, but I rarely eat the candy. I'll have to post some shots of the collection sometime soon.

Took the kids to the Disney on Ice show at the Charleston Civic Center over the weekend. Here are a couple of shots.

Lamp Reflection

I love when I'm just goofing off and get an interesting shot totally by accident. This is my desk lamp which I captured by lying the camera on its back pointing straight up and I just guessed at a location and snapped the shutter. The reflection part on the lower right is the back of my iMac. As Bob Ross would say, thank goodness for happy little accidents.
