she looked so peaceful i couldn't resist snapping a pic. she reminds me of a friend i have who i haven't spoken to in years, even tho we're facebook buddies.

my roommate is an animal lover, through and through. i didn't grow up around animals, the token dog i had was a german shepard in africa and she was a guard dog, pretty to look at but not so much to play with. i'm actually quite scared of animals, big or small, cuddly or not. i am drawn to PBS and Discovery channels for their nature documentaries. does that count?

recently, we went to the Baltimore Zoo. she needed her animal fix. since moving in with me 8 weeks ago and realizing that the only pet i have is a cactus plant that i ignore, she's been without. poor dear.

they're not deer. they're something that starts with an "S" and originate from africa. i kept yelling out "Bambi!" tho.

baltimore zoo 2

this was also part of the "africa trail". now that i think about it, the Baltimore Zoo has a very good african section.


giraffe 2

oh, how i love giraffes. the smallest one kept following the biggest one around. it was adorable. i think i stood there for a good 10 minutes, just gawking at them.


and then the biggest of them all: the elephants. this one was alone, seperate from the other two females. i don't know why. my only criticism of this zoo is that the placards didn't provide much information about the animals beyond what the species were. i wanted to know the names, how they came to the zoo, what their habits were etc. *that* interests me. the Zoo in DC is a bit better, with even more animals. this time around, the polar bears were resting in the shade, the lions weren't doing much and i couldn't find one of the cheetahs.

bird and nest

out on my fire escape my roommate spotted a mama bird who created a nest out of an old flower pot.

she's guarding two eggs.

so my roommate and i will guard over her until her babies hatch.

we've named her Guadalupe.

we're going to be aunts and we love them already!

Happy Love Thursday!

Just think about love and companionship, and every thing’s fine.

spent a long weekend in Puerto Rico with jason. during the walk to the beach, we passed a couple. i observed them for a moment. they were oblivious to the lovely water, the palm trees shading them, to people milling about. they were too busy being in love.

happy love thursday.

thinking about you

this was outside the door of my building the other day. the roses a dark stained red-black, the water gone violet. i was in a rush and did not pause. the next morning, they were still there. the note read: "thinking of you. i guess you aren't anymore!"

Cold grey morning without sunlight ghostly mist on the horizon ... ~Kansas

i find that nowadays i wake up tired, like i haven't gotten enough sleep. because i really haven't gotten enough sleep. my mornings are spent lethargic, eyes clouded over until the jolt of caffeine kicks in. it never does, at least not during the daylight hours. i come home and later into the evening the pricklings of sleep abate and i toss and turn in my bed, waiting for slumber. only to have the cycle start again and i am back to being torpid, mind blowingly ... tired. and the grey mornings of late winter does not help.

spring is finally around the corner. march is over halfway over already. i am hopeful. just for the sunshine and warmth. for the country to claw our way out of this economic slump. march madness starts today! (my alma mater made it to the dance and tho they probably will not advance beyond the first round, i really am excited for the

live laugh love

i took this picture upside down. well, actually, at a weird angle. i think this quote "live laugh love" is so true. it means something, or it should. and as i get older, it's something i want my everyday to be like.

love on the fence

one of baltimore's mottos is Believe. this word is everywhere. in a time like now it gives one Hope. one day while pumping gas during my lunch break, i looked up and saw this fence. and even tho i was starving and all i had was leftover waiting for me back at the office, this image made me feel better.

happy love thursday.

parking lot at dusk

i seriously love this parking lot. it's a converted warehouse. the ground is dirty and there are piles of drift wood. the glass windows are tall and high up, there are some even broken. it's a haven for picturing taking, in the morning or evening. i can't wait for the weather to warm up so i can stand to be outside snapping away.

i'm not so tired of taking pictures every morning, between the hours of 7 to 10am, but i am tired of having to post it on this blog. i'm up in arms as to what kind of photography blog i want to do. like a diary? one that chronicles my everyday life? no i already offer alot of myself in my craft/food blog. there is only so much of my life i can put on display. so for now, i will just post random finds that i capture and maybe i'll have sage words of wisdom. or not.

i'll still post my span of
3 hours pictures on my flickr page.

2/2 - Feb One Word Project

Some day you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again. ~C.S. Lewis
over at the Shutter Sisters, they're hosting a new project called the One Word Project. for the month of february, i chose the word FUN in the hopes that i can capture this joyous word in some form. i don't have to take a picture everyday (altho it would be nice...) but at least ONE picture to highlight that word. today's pic is just two different viewpoints on fun reading. can you guess which one is mine?

for more beautifully inspired One Word pix to take your breath away, check out the
Shutter Sisters Flickr Pool or their pick of the day.
