So, I decided to ‘take the plunge.’ I went ahead and launched a website this weekend and followed it up with a facebook page. If you’ve been following my blog, I would absolutely love for you to hop on over and have a peek at the website and most certainly if you have a facebook page, then link up with me there too!
As always, thank you so much for following or stopping in!
btw, everything that was ‘tagged’ in this post can absolutely be found in my website, lots, here on this blog 😛
With all of the snow, which I’m happy to see & have 😉 I thought it would be good to take our minds elsewhere for a quick minute. My apologies in advance, I am about to interchange he & it a lot! —I never thought I would be excited to bring home a new fish, or better yet anything else that goes in a tank. Despite the contrary, I couldn’t be more thrilled with our anemone. This guy is so interesting. It’s tentacle’s flow in the current, but it will move itself by it’s own free will as well! We had placed the anemone on the shelf behind it, but it moved its way over and down, clearly to where he felt best. When we feed the anemone, the tentacles curl over sensing food in the vicinity and when it feels the food, the dozens of arms work together to get the goods to its mouth! I thought it was so strange that it had a mouth & could move on its own. For now this anemone of ours is nameless, like most I’m sure…however, I feel he certainly deserves one -btw, I just feel it’s a he. Either way, it is beautiful, in it’s own, tentacle-y way. The skin is vibrant and transparent – I don’t even know if it’s called skin. It is just lovely to look at, almost like it is illuminated by a light from within. This polyp and it’s fellow tank mates, are yet another reminder as to how complex and detailed life all around us is. Not that we’re surrounded by these guys often, if at all. But, in general – all that nature has to offer…everyday beauties and wonders.
Not your average take on icicles, I know! None-the-less, I really enjoyed taking these…and, now, looking at them 😉
Over here, we are starting out the New Year with a bang! To top it off, I am starting it out with a new lens! I couldn’t be any happier. You cannot imagine what fun it brings me, or maybe you can! 🙂 I hope you are all happy to start off the New Year & please do continue to stop here and see what 2011 brings in ways of growth for Jillian Cobb Photography!
Mind you, Atlanta hasn’t seen a White Christmas for 128 years! It was truly touching to experience. The joy of the children with Christmas & SNOW on top of it! We sat at the table Christmas morning with a perfect blend of North & South. We had northern-ish snow falling and we had southern cooking, homemade biscuits, gravy and bacon – YUM! …and for me fond memories of growing up with mostly White Christmases!
Remember my post, Ode to the Japanese Maple – …well, here it is in all it’s winter glory!
Last, but not least, a more normal approach to capturing this winter’s icicles 🙂
