I took the day off to attend the Women's Conference and was going to be staying at a friend's house in Huntington Beach.  I was suppose to meet her, but since she was running late I decided to grab my camera and run to the pier.  

I've been burning the candle at both ends and just needed a mental break.  I just sat and watched the sunset when these birds started to walk in front of me.. I took about 50 pictures and blew the exposure in a number of them..  (I am STILL trying to learn manual exposure :(   I need a mentor! ...Anybody want to volunteer or go on a photowalk?).. But this photo came out golden.

Love that Shot...

Hi there.. I just got back from vacation and I decided to enter a contest, since it's been a while... and I REALLY want to win some Florabella goodies.  I really love the textures, they are beautiful...

This picture was taken of my son just before he went to play in the ocean.  We rented a bungalow for a few hours in the Princess Cays and I knew as soon as I saw it I would have to take a few pictures in front of it.. Thank you for looking :)
No processing was done, just straight out of the camera (Most of the time I just crop and fix exposure on Picasa.  I don't really use Photoshop because I haven't totally figured it out and it takes me a long time :-/)
