Throw Back Thursday – Bouncing Bunny

Bouncing Bunny

Every bunny was kung fu fighting…

Look I found a dust bunny…

Sometimes it’s like you don’t carrot all…

Okay I’m done with the funny bunny puns.

Well, Easter is around the corner and I decided to show you the ONE of ONE bunny photo I’ve taken. Yes, that’s right I only have one bunny photo to show, so it’s not like the choice was difficult. I took this photo back in the summer of 2012, not long after I got my first DSLR. This little guy was so cute and I remember creeping to the window so as to not scare him away in order to get the picture.

Bunny Ears

I also love this photo of Coco, my chihuahua/minpin. She was running across the lawn and I caught her while her ears flopped up and down. My very own bunny eared Coco.

I hope you have a lovely Easter.

Keep Smiling.

Throw Back Thursday – Coco as a Pup


Okay, I can’t even handle this cuteness. Wasn’t Coco such a cute puppy?


Of course when I first met her I could NOT say no. But then again, she actually chose me.


She is still such a cutie, but I just can’t get over what a cute little puppy she was. So tiny. She’s still tiny and I still get asked how old she is 7 years later, but she doesn’t have one gray hair in these pictures.

How the years fly by.

Throw Back Thursday – Grand Canyon


Ahhh, the GRAND CANYON! (I thought I wrote Grand Crayon at first, haha.)


I truly madly deeply love the Grand Canyon. (Quick, who sings that song?) These photos were taken with a Panasonic DMC-FZ7, my old camera.


If you notice in this last picture, someone is walking down the trail. There are many signs warning about hiking at the Grand Canyon. Heat and Rain are big factors when hiking in Arizona. Here is the Hike Smart Page for your trip to the Grand Canyon.

On this trip it was kind of a drive-by to look at what we could see and then move on. I definitely want to visit Arizona again and do some hiking and maybe some horseback riding.

Do you have any vacation plans coming up or a trip that you recommend?

Hope you’re having a great week!

“The glories and the beauties of form, color, and sound unite in the Grand Canyon – forms unrivaled even by the mountains, colors that vie with sunsets, and sounds that span the diapason from tempest to tinkling raindrop, from cataract to bubbling fountain.”

Bird Watching at the Park

Coming in for Water Landing

This double-crested cormorant was coming in for a water landing. Is it still called “land”ing if it’s on the water?

Smooth Water Landing

Set it down nice and smooth.

Settled on the Water

Perfect, even with the ripples surrounding him.

Flight Turn

There were several double-crested cormorants that kept flying around. One kept getting really close to me and I tried to follow him with my camera, but he went towards the sun and blinded me.

Making the Turn

So it took me a few times of him flying over to get some good shots that were in focus.

In Flight

Ending with my favorite… look at those wings and beautiful coloring.

I have to admit I don’t know the names of many birds so I Googled New Jersey Birds and got this website. I bookmarked it so I can refer back when I need to, I’m hoping to get more bird photos this year. Moving targets are lot more fun to try to capture. ;)

Hope you’re having a good week!

Keep Smiling!
