last august

These are some of the photos and activities from last August.

We found these caterpillars for black swallowtails in the fennel.

I took 'this' photo of 'me' last August. I was playing with the macro lens I made. I also took the ant picture below with that lens.


Wasp's nest by the trail.

Raindrops - we need those this August.

The day before hubby's corneal transplant on August 28, 2006.

The girls model the dresses my Mom made for them last summer.

Dog days always require ice cream.

Someone was sick of his job, I guess.

I did a lot of embroidering last August.


  1. I was wondering about your eye picture. I gave you an award over at my place. I hope you don't mind.

  2. These are gorgeous photos! Do you actually shoot some of them in b&w, or do you drop the color out in PhotoShop or another program? I love the eye shot.

  3. My digital camera (a Digital Rebel) doesn't have a black and white option. I drop the color using RGB in Jasc Paint Shop Pro 8. I sometimes adjust color using CMYK in the same program.

  4. the swallowtails are busily chomping on my fennel...actually, they're just about done :)

    that's okay...I plant it just for them...not much of a fennel gal...

    Beauuutiful embroidery. I haven't sewn, other than rents and buttons and dress alterations, since forever.

    You have a beautiful eye (and I'm sure the other matches just lovely :) )
