#15 – Into the Air {2-16}

I haven’t posted any 26 Things pictures for a long time.  I had made up my mind that I would finish by the end of January with this challenge and once again… failed my mission.  I take pictures that are supposed to be a part of it, and then don’t post them anywhere.  Here are a couple of ideas I had for the theme – Into the Air… Which do you like best?  Leave a comment and let me know before I post to my photo group to share. 

Round 2 – District Tournament {2-12}

The Bulldogs had a tough second round in the tournament.  It was painful to watch and I felt super badly for the boys.  They just didn’t come together at the right time of the year as the best I can come up with.  Okay, I lie.  There is more to it, but I will keep my ideas and thoughts to myself on part of what happened.

Trevor and Andy played hard (as did the other players). I have struggled all year to get a picture of Andy in focus.  Since we are quite possibly one game away from the end of the season, here is something close to focused and sort of close to an action shot.  Andy was an integral part of the year even though he didn’t score a million points.  He just played hard… always.  As far as Trevor goes, there were times during this game that he was super frustrated.  It was painful to watch as a mom.  I wanted to fix it, but moms can’t fix everything.

#12 Line Up {1-15}

This post covers a few areas on my photography challenges.  It is my 365 post for January 15th, 2011 and is # 12 on my 26 Things list… Line Up.  Decided it fit, as this is a “Starting Line Up”.

The Bulldogs played in the Bismarck Civic Center.  The Civic Center used to be the meca for the State Class B Boys’ Basketball tournament, but for some reason is no longer ‘the’ location.  Most often, it is held in Minot these days.  I was happy to see my son play on the floor at the Civic Center.  It was fun.  The atmosphere was strange because it was super quiet and you could hear everyone around you. 

The Bulldogs pulled off another win.  Go Bulldogs!

#21 – In My Mailbox

I have been trying a new product called My Mosquito Deleter.  Still not going to say if I love it or hate it.  Emma reacts quite badly to bites so I wanted to try something that would allow her to play in the yard and not have to worry every single minute.  It is supposed to trap the moms as they lay the eggs and then the larva are never able to escape.

#17 – New

Taken in Rhame. Emma loves horses so we had to go see this foal, as she called it. The baby was born just a few days before this photo. I was surprised her Momma let us be there as long as she did. We were in the van (shooting from the window…in the rain). She let me capture a few images but became annoyed with us and moved in front of her baby.

#1 – Structure

Olivia and I built this tower together.  I decided to snap a couple of pictures of it and wanted to post the one that shows the “Structure” and the “Constructor”.  I’m going to assume that she has chocolate on her face.  The chances are highly likely since she has a bit of a ‘thing’ for chocolate.

#4 – Triple

This image didn’t turn out exactly as I had envisioned, but we had put the tulips in a champagne flute in the window and the light was hitting them so cool, I just had to try.  I do not post process anything at this point in my learning experience.  So for anyone that is photosavvy… these are SOOC (straight out of camera).

#20 – Ten Minutes Away

Progress is not always something easy to digest.  These wind towers are being built roughly 10 minutes away from my Mom and Dad’s house.  The same towers the Tivey family checks out from time to time.

Through Mom’s kitchen window,  she now looks out to see a substation and power lines that were not there before.  These towers appear on the horizon as you enter my home town.  Here they look interesting, but a part of me misses seeing the wide open skyline of home.
