I met someone at the wedding I shot who sparked some ideas, and set me on a journey to work on my craft.  Reading Erin 's blog posts on her 'wordplay' assignments awhile back stuck with me, and I proposed to a friend that she send me a word every few weeks.  She immediately sent back 'arch.'  I immediately thought of this, which used to be a scary overpass above I-25 in Denver, but is now a lovely footbridge that connects two hip, urban neighborhoods.  It has been a fun experiment, I have noticed all sorts of things that I pass on a weekly or daily basis that might be 'arch.'  In fact, I think this image might be too easy, but I drive under it every week thinking how great it is and how I should shoot it sometime, and I never have.  Here are some more of my arches:  Which image do you like the best??

Pictures: Knit Pattern

Recently, I took pictures for Dawn Hansen of her Autism Awareness Puzzle Hat.  I regularly park behind someone at school who has an Autism Awareness bumper sticker on their car, so I knew what the puzzle piece symbolized.  I was surprised more of my friends did not know what it means.  Autism affects 1 in 110 children, and 1 in 70 boys.  Having three boys of my own, that hits pretty close to home.  If you purchase this hat pattern, the benefits are two-fold.  Besides getting a great hat, you'll be helping the cause.  Dawn donates a portion of the proceeds of this pattern to the Autism Society !  You can buy the pattern on Ravelry here or purchase or find out more on her website here .  Red, yellow, and blues are the official colors for the autism ribbon but there are many beautiful variations of Dawn's pattern on the Ravelry project page.  Dawn used to be in my knitting group but I didn't really talk with her much until after she moved out of town.  We start

Fall Has Arrived

Pictures: Baby

I have a friend who recently had a baby, so invited myself over to her house with my camera!

Pictures: Wedding

I was recently asked if I take wedding pictures, and for the most part I don't.  However, BFJ has been friends with this guy since high school, when they had a garage band.  How could I say no?  It was a fun day! 

Bread I've re-written this post at least three times now.  I have so many things to blog about, they are competing with each other in my head and I keep making mistakes.  I'm just going to keep it simple.  I'm so fed up, I'm not even going to bother putting that link in the html.  I had some delicious bread at the wedding rehearsal dinner I went to a couple of weeks ago, and it has been on my mind since then.  We've been getting bread at local bakeries, lately, and BFJ wanted to check this one out, so we spent the afternoon in the Highland and LoHi neighborhoods.  Lots of great food there, including a bread shop, a cheese chop, a tea & bike (?) shop, a wine shop, a wine and coffee shop, a coffee shop, two places that serve New York style pizza, a gourmet cake shop, and a fantastic ice cream place.  One of the best things I had today, though, was the roasted butternut (from my own garden) with garlic and stuff. 


Lucky Number 3

Without further delay, the give-away winner is lucky #3, Mimi!  Congratulations! (Please contact me, Mimi, so that I can send your prize!) As for the rest of you, i f you've EVER commented on my blog, thank you from the bottom of my heart.  I really enjoy blogging, both writing and sharing my own personal projects, as well as reading and being inspired by so many of you.  Now, what have I been doing since August 18th?  I really had no intention of not posting for so long, but I just wasn't in the mood.  It started out with having too much going on, and then I added a terrible rash which got so itchy I could hardly sleep.  Then, we had back-to-school stuff going on.  I also shot a wedding, a birthday party, and some portraits,  and have over 700 pictures to go through!  On top of it all, I knew I needed to pick a winner and I hadn't gotten to that yet.  So, you know, life stuff.   I was going to bore you with all the details of the rash but Short Story Long
