You Capture-Week Six

>> Thursday, April 2, 2009

It's Thursday, so it must be time again for the You Capture weekly challenge. For this weeks challenge we were to capture Spring.

My photo this week was taken in Arkansas, while I was visiting The Husband, and I have to say that they are weeks ahead of NW Indiana when it comes to Spring.

That was the biggest upside to driving in a car for 8 hours, the further south I got the greener things became...... good for the soul. Except it kind of has the reverse effect when your coming home...... the further north I went the grayer things got and it didn't help knowing that I was coming home to snow in March UGH! Ummmm Hello Mother Nature do you need new glasses or something because well you know it's April and it doesn't even look like Spring in Indiana. Yes, I know that April showers bring May flowers but would it hurt to have a few days in a row of warm sunny weather?

But anyway here's my photo for this week. I'm not 100% happy with it. It was taken with my "purse camera" and since I'm still learning how it works some shots are hit or miss. This one was the best of the bunch, but if you click on it to make it larger you will see two little ants ...... lol

Little Rock, Arkansas

Until next week happy shooting my blogger friends.

I think this is a great shot & love the little ants, glad you pointed that out or I probably would have missed them!

I am so glad you told us to open the pic up because the little ants make a nice shot a really cool one!
PS - I always feel for you when I look at your shots because my husband and I lived 9 hours apart for work at one point. It is a hard way to live. I am very happy to hear that you were able to see him recently :)

Spring is definitely still weeks ahead in NW Indiana, but it is so worth the wait.
Love the yellow flowers!

hee hee - I keep thinking of your blog and the purse camera! My husband is NOT convinced I need one!!

Lovely flower

Bellamomma April 3, 2009 at 1:42 PM  

I am finding that I need a purse camera just because I'm still afraid of damaging my 3rd child (aka the SLR)!

The shot is great! Much better than my old point & click ever got.

I like the ants! gives it character! Thanks for sharing. Swing by my site, The IE Mommy, to view my shot and if you already have....Thanks :)

Great colors and I love the ants!

I wonder why Mother Nature has such an attitude problem this year.
