The Hours - 2014 9:00am

It's 9:00am at The Hours.
This hour I decided to head outside.  It had been raining for a few days and there was a small break on this day, enough time to take a walk and see what there was to see.
I found pink.

Of course one is never enough. There are different angles to explore, different backgrounds to play with, different spots to focus on.

The pink blooms are only here for a short time each year. Every year I'm happy to see them and they always prove to be cooperative and nice subjects. With their colors they bring hope that the end of winter is coming soon and that warm and sunny days are just up ahead.

Fave 5 on 5 - 2014 February

Raise your hand if you felt that February just flew by.
As I was reminded that the Favorite 5 on 5 time was here again I had a moment of panic. Do I even have 5 favorites? Did I take any photos this month? How could this month already be over?!
Luckily I did take photos, however this month there were no big adventures and all of my photos were taken locally.  "Locally" as in taken either at home or at school, all within a 3 mile radius.

Below is a description of each of my photos, in order of appearance. Remember to keep the photo circle going by clicking on the next photographer's (Alison) link at the end of this post.

In order:
1. Fence light (above). I loved the light coming in from the fence and I love how this can only be seen at a certain time of day, for a limited amount of time and only with the right weather.
2. Happy plant. This is the plant that sits on my dining room table. It needs to be repotted. The stick is there to keep it upright until the repotting happens. The smiley face is there to encourage me to do this.
3. Rain. Finally it rained. This is to mark that moment. This viewpoint is coming from the dining table that the plant is sitting on in number 2 above. The fence behind the flower is the same fence seen in number 1 above.
These are the facts, just reporting the facts.
4. Play Ball. I was looking for the color "purple" and asked if he would let me take a picture with him and the ball. The answer was "yes" but only under this condition.
5. Pink. I was looking for pink (it's color week(s) don't you know) and found this set at the library.
