365 Project -- #239-245

This is the time in my week when I look back at the images I've captured
the week before, and choose my seven favorites.
These seven--one for each day of the week--are featured below.

Last week was nice and varied, photographically speaking.  I try to take Ellie with me when I can (and when it's appropriate) so I can document everyday life.  Aaand...here's the next snippet of everyday life!

I've hinted to my husband that it would be nice to go to a farmers market on a Saturday, just for fun.  Our local market is Thursday afternoons (yuck for several reasons), and I wanted to see a "real" market, with lots of booths and vendors of all sorts, and have a date all at the same time.  Fernando took me to the Wheaton French Market, and I got my wish, plus lots of people and a dizzying array of products offered.  Yes, we spent money.  But not a lot.  :)

[239] August 27 -- Farmers Market

I had the privilege of shooting Tressey and her family just a little bit ago (post to appear soon), and I had the extra-special privilege of shooting Tressey's surprise birthday party last week.  Her husband hit a grand-slam with this party, hosted at a roller rink!  (That's roller skating, and yes--I had a pair on!)

[240] August 28 -- Surprise!

[241] August 29 -- Hand in hand

Yeah, it was a night of just hangin' around with nothin' to do except take pictures...

[242] August 30 -- Hangin' around

Ingredients lined up on the counter makes it so much easier to make things.  This evening it was Caesar salad dressing.  Yum.

[243] August 31 -- Making salad dressing

One of my sewing projects with which I occupy my time while waiting for Danny to get out of college class.  (I accompany him since he still has his learner's permit, long story...)

[244] September 1 -- Sewing project

My friend Lori was picking veggies in her "rented" garden space in my back yard, and she spotted this guy.  He was HUGE, hence the all-caps.  He would turn his head and look right at us; amazing!

[245] September 2 -- Pepper plant surprise

And so went my week.  I hope to be on the ball enough to get more posts up; I have a few from portrait sessions and events to get up.  I sure hope you have a blessed week after Labor Day!

Capturing the moments of life.
