The photos in this post aren’t all that, but for today, they’re all I have to share.
I love sharing my photography with you, I really do. But sometimes, I almost feel – oh, I don’t know – pressure to produce something good every day. I don’t know how else to explain it but I do know that the pressure comes from myself, of course. So tonight I told myself to get over it.
Hence these photos.
Because really, folks, there ain’t much going on at the ol’ manor house tonight.
I leave for work at 7 in the morning and return around 4:30 or 5:00. Then it’s walk time with George for just under an hour, which today was much easier for some reason. And my knees weren’t screaming.
When I come in, it’s time for dinnah and the best part of that is the fact that my husband cooks it for me every night.
Needless to say, this doesn’t leave much time for photography.
When I sat down to dinner tonight, I looked outside and saw that the cardinals had arrived. They always come to the feeders at the same time in the early evening, just before dark. They come in flocks and most of the other birds are gone by then.
We love watching them while we eat and talk about our day and I think they look beautiful against the silvery branches of the dogwood.
I shot about 24 photos through the window during dinner, but 80% of them were duds. Such is life, though ~ and as it turns out, these three were the best of the bunch.
There seems to be a general malaise on several of the blogs I visit and I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s
A. The weather.
B. The disaster in Japan.
C. We are our own worst critic.
D. Famous Amos cookies.
That last one was for me. I’ve taped the giant box shut at school, so I won’t be able to get into them anymore.
Wish me luck, ok?
PS – I’ll be watching Eat, Pray, Love tonight. After Survivor, of course. I love Netflix.
PPS – Happy St. Patrick's Day ~
