Snapshot Saturday – Boom!

July is the month that we, in the United States, celebrate our country’s independence.  Generally speaking, we honor the bravery and determination of our forefathers by having a BBQ, drinking some beer (or beerlike substance) and blowing stuff up!  I love FIREWORKS!!!  The boom, the colors, the majestic pictures in the night sky!  So, this month I’m going share some of my favorite pictures of this year’s fireworks!

Snapshot Saturday – Reliving Childhood Memories

I can’t believe my father has been gone for an entire year.  There are days when I feel like I spoke to him less than 24 hours before, and others when I feel like he’s been missing from my life for an eternity.  I decided to use this month’s Snapshot Saturday Posts to pay tribute to him and some of the places he loved most.  We spent a lot of the last few years revisiting some of the adventures we had while I was growing up. We went to ball games, amusement parks, the zoo, the movies, car races, casinos, and museums.  One of my favorite memories of childhood was going to the Bronx Zoo with my Dad, my brother and our Grandma.  The last trip I took with my dad was a return visit to the Zoo.  This is a picture of him outside of the Rhinoceros habitat in April of 2013.

Snapshot Saturday – Abstraction

May’s Snapshot Saturday posts are a series of abstract images I’ve taken so far in 2014.

What do you think this one is?

Snapshot Saturday – Abstraction

Any ideas what this Abstract Image is?  Like I mentioned last week, I decided May’s Snapshot Saturday posts are going to be a series of abstract images I’ve taken so far in 2014.

Snapshot Saturday – Wings of Change

As Spring continues to blossom, I am embracing the growth and changes of my new life.  I want to keep the positive growth I’ve found over the course of the last year, but also move forward with the remaining changes that are on the horizon!  Embrace the butterfly within and be free…

Snapshot Saturday – Oh Christmas Tree!

This week’s picture is the first shot I took of our decorated Christmas tree in our new house!  I made a bunch of huge changes this year, and this is just one more to add to the list.  We went with an artificial tree instead of a live one.  I have never liked fake trees, but I really do like how this one looks.

There were a hundred reasons we went with artificial, and I can honestly say I’m not disappointed with my choice.  How about you… Real or Fake?

Snapshot Saturday – Deck the Halls

This week’s picture is a quick photo of some of the local Christmas lights in our neighborhood.  It doesn’t seem like people go as crazy here as they do on Long Island.  I haven’t seen a single inflatable lawn ornament, and the Christmas lights are much more reserved and less over-the-top.  I’m not so sure if I like it.

How bout you guys?  Are you an over-the-top Christmas decorator?  Or are you more reserved?
