No more volleyball for a while around here. I think everyone is looking forward to the break. The last tournament was this weekend in Des Moines. That is a fun little city.

Have you ever been there?

Here are some things I saw along the way in Iowa…

Lots of flat empty highways

It’s a very interesting state. We lived there for a few years about 20 years ago in a rural town but came back to the St. Louis area after my oldest was born to be close to our families.

Time to Start Moving

I visited my doctor this week for a check up and he got on me a bit because I am not very good about getting in regular exercise. So I’m going to start with yoga. It’s about all I can tolerate. Anything too aerobic gives me a migraine headache. It’s a whole thing. I may walk some but the weather has to be just right. I’m real sensitive to the temperature. It’s a whole other thing. Lol. What do you do for exercise?

Two Views

I love this view of the lake with the tree off center. Below is another view of the same tree only from a distance.

Here it sort of gets lost in the backdrop of the trees on the other side of the lake.

The white sand everywhere always makes for interesting images because it almost looks like snow in the middle of spring or summer or at least looks like sand that should be next to an ocean on the coast not next to a tiny lake in the midwest.

Saturday Lakeview

Got out to a new park today to take pictures. Haven’t been here in a few years. It is quite beautiful. It was very crowded but as you will see in the photos I will be posting in the next week or two you would think it was deserted. Patience and some precise zooming can help you work your way around almost any obtrusive subjects or objects.

It’s Been a Long Road

WordPress informed me this week that I have been blogging here for 8 years now. Wow! Actually it’s been eleven years because I ran a different photography and art blog before this one for 3 years and then I went strictly to photography and started fresh with a new identity here.

It’s such an enjoyable hobby taking pictures and sharing them here and looking at everyone else’s and talking shop. Thanks for being a part of my photography journey.

How long have you been blogging?
