A few years ago, I lost all my photos. My backup drive went corrupt. I was able to save most, but I did end up with having lost 2011 and some of 2012. Thankfully, I did have some backed up here, on wordpress as well as a few on disc, remember that?
The above taken along the R&R tracks out back.
Both of these above were taken on Parent’s Mountain in front of my house.
This shot – took me a while to set up, mostly because the sun never quite hit at the right place. I had to do a bit of – scouting to get JUST the shot!
More perspective shots from Parent’s Mountain!
Ah, Sept, almost fall! My fave time of the year.
These are my FIRST pictures with my Canon Rebel SX/DSLR – Previously, anything before Sept 2010 was scanned from my film photos (still a Rebel, I’m a Canon girl)
I spent 7 weeks in Milliknocket, ME doing my clinicals. The last two shots of 2013 are my first “long exposure” shots.
Fall! Up on the mountain in Lille
I was at my 1st New Mexico assignment for all of Sept of 2015 – what a great area too!
The below picture was taken atop an inactive volcano – in that view, you can see Texas in the far distance.
Sunset, flowers, and views from atop Haystack Mountain
The following few pictures of of a “photo drive” I took with my nephew that summer. We had a BLAST!
Views from Haystack!
I spent ALL of 2017 in MAINE! Down state and home.
One of my fave sunsets! I love those colors.
I bought some relatively cheap magnification/marco lens filters. Most of these are at 2x
Someone suggested to me to make a “best of” my photos. I have to be honest, that’s a LOT of pictures. So I’ll be doing this every last day of the month (if I can). I went all the way back (as far as I have saved) and rummaged around in my January folders.
Stormy, on the couch, where she shouldn’t have been!
My first time in Deer Isle, while working at the nursing home – I was there a short time – 9 weeks or so, but it’s a place I’ll definitely want to go back to again and again.
Snow Storms from HELL!
My 2nd time in Deer Isle (I just realized I spent two winters there in the last 3 years). So many pictures to pick from – but these are my faves.
We barely have been able to afford life, much less a vacation. But due to the fact that I’m now a travelling PTA and making a few bucks here and there, we can actually learn to enjoy life!
We headed to Machias, and then to Roque’s Beach. Secluded, quiet, and gorgeous.
We did some searching for seaglass, and just took in the fresh air.
Then we headed over to Machais Falls. Walked around, enjoyed the sights, and then over to Quoddy Lighthouse.
Totally different tapestry here, rocks and not sand, but equally as beautiful.
We decided to keep the world simple, we grabbed sandwiches, and headed back to Roque Beach for dinner on the beach and watch the sunset.
Sometimes it is the simple moments in life that make life worth it and memorable.
This bug kept running and face planting in front of me. Id’ take a few steps, and it would scurry and – faceplant!
Wicked set of steps.
This has been here thousands of years. That’s a lil awe inspiring.
I finally got a shot of a ROADRUNNER
I began my morning not having even grabbed my Rebel. I get in my car, look into the rearview mirror and see this blob of blue. I dashed back to the cabin and got my Rebel. Never leave home without it.
Then the World’s Largest Pistachio. Nuff Said
The Space Museum was very cool. A lot of reading, and history. And huge machines. Those engines are monstrous.
You are never quite sure what man is capable of until you see it for yourself.
I’ve always loved space. Star Wars, Star Trek, 2001 a Space Odyssey. I can stare at the sky for hours and hours. I’ve never believed that we are alone in the word, that would be arrogant.
The fun thing is that some of this stuff looks like its from a bad sci-fi movie. It isn’t. It was the actual working components used by NASA.
I didn’t take a picture, but there is also a section on Disney and George Lucas, which I thought was very cool. They have a small gift shop and everything is reasonably priced.
I didn’t drag my Rebel with me and just had some fun w/my phone. Its a GREAT lil town, some fun stuff to see.
Most of the stores have these vast displays with lil green aliens. Totally cool and campy.
Even the lamp posts are in on the alien deal!
That’s right. MickeyDees too!
This is how we relax in Roswell.
Me and my FitBit following the green footprints of the Aliens
The take-way from Roswell is that its a fun, quirky, walk around town where people have capitalized on their otherworldly fame. As they should!
