News to me

Sadly but true the end of the daily paper maybe coming to a newspaper near you and after 16 wonderful and fulfilling years the uncertainty of my beloved job and co-workers has left a whole in my heart. I never imaged this day would come, that I could wake up to an empty doorstep and drink my coffee infront of the computer instead of our daily paper, like a friend said to me today "what will my dog do if there's no paper to fetch me in the mornings?, though for some of us the death of the daily newspaper will go unnoticed and other's won't realized what exactly they'll miss until it's gone, as for me it will be more than just the folded piece of newsprint it will be the decades of memories and the friends I've made along the way.

May Flowers

It was a beautiful spring afternoon when I took this photo of my oldest daughter. This photo is pretty much straight out of the camera, the lighting was soft and the colors creamy so I pretty much left is as is, I love all the different shades of purple, blue, and red highlights in her hair against her yellow shirt and the red rossette headband.

May's photo challenge over at Rock The Shot Forum is “Flower Portrait”, so your submission this month must include flowers and at least ONE person. Stop on over everyone is invited to participate!
