Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Shadows


I am getting in on this a little late for this week but better late than never right…  I am thinking this will be nice and help me stay on task with a photo a day for 365 days.  I have said this before as you can see by my missed days on my calendar I am not a routine, schedule oriented person.  So I will give it my best!  I think I will have some fun with next weeks challenge.

You can find me Cee at marialackey50.wordpress.com  (Life 365 A Photo Project)

I haven’t figured out how to link things or add links such as the link to your page or my link back to my page.  If you could educate me that would be great. 🙂



Macro Monday, Sort Of…


I don’t actually have a macro lens so I zoomed in and cropped instead.

Saw this little guy out on the trail the other day, it was quite pretty and stood out so well you couldn’t miss it.

I like the angry face on the wings, if that doesn’t say get lost I don’t know what does!

Hiking Season is Upon Us!

Some like the tropics and some like the pines,  I think I am a pine girl!  I do not, on the other hand like heights of any kind… clearly!  My husband went up on this log so of course I had to try!  Walked up it no problem… then it kind of bounced with me on it, waking in me my fear of heights.  My hubby is like just turn around and walk down.  Yeah, not gonna happen, I knew if I picked up one foot I was going to lose it.  So I proceeded to lower my self and scoot back down on my butt!  Can you see the fear!!!!

Weekly Photo Challenge: On Top


Writing in her first summit book!  I love living where I do, so many things to do and see and the fact that I can do this with my family makes it that much more enjoyable!  On Top of Sauer Mt. A hike not even ten minutes from home!  We started our hiking season on Easter Sunday this year, hoping to get a ton of hikes in this year.  God willing! 🙂

Still learning the functions of my camera missing a shot or two but getting better at figuring out what dials to turn to get what I want. Manual Mode is the way to go!

Weekly Photo Challenge: On Top


While hiking around Mt. Rainier on the Wonderland Trail we reached our camp and were able to check out the area and there was this amazing campsite that overlooked this amazing view!  We had already had our camp set up when I discovered this one, watching the sunset is my Best Friend and her daughter.  With views like this you can’t help but feel like you are On Top of the world!

Spring Has Sprung, and Photographers Unite!

The Spring flowers are finally starting to bloom and they are so pretty!

Funny story actually, I was sitting in my front yard, camera to my face when a guy in a truck drives by with a smile on his face giving me a thumbs-up.

I wasn’t sure if I was sharing my side of the moon, which is so not cool!  Checking and was confident that wasn’t the case.  He has returned and parked across the street jumping out of his truck and walking over to me exclaiming how he was doing that very thing just yesterday.

In his hands he has his I-Pad and his nifty portable backdrops for isolating objects. He had his pictures up and was ready to show me all the photos he took the other day!  It was an odd encounter but funny!

The Chicks Are Growing Up!

Well I would have to say having Chickens again isn’t the Cluster Cluck I thought it would be.  Yes I have my moments…  They are growing up so quickly!

The black one is Chewy, I haven’t named the others yet, that isn’t entirely true.  The others I call curious.  That is what I call any of them when they start looking around and getting closer to me to see what I  am doing.

Chewy got her name because the markings on her head from a distance looked like Chewy from Star Wars.
