Some things never change...and the fact that I still love to take random pictures has only been recognized more here in Louisiana since we have moved. We take two days off a week and spend that time with just our family of three. We usually go fishing, or riding or exploring, and of course I always have my camera in hand. I find it soothing to look at the world and things of creation through the lens of a camera. It cheap therapy for me! So, here's some of the pictures from our latest drive through the countryside.

On this particular day we just got in the car and drove through the back roads until we ended up somewhere we found familiar. I never thought I'd enjoy something like that...I'm a planner and like to know where I am going and why I am going there, and what time I can expect to be back home. My husband, on the other hand, is a 'fly by the seat of your pants' type of guy and loves to just follow the yellow brick road to see where it leads. He's trying to get me out of that stress zone of always having everything planned, so we've been doing quiet a few of these little drives.

We often laugh because my husband compares our personalities to the characters in the storybook series of Winnie The Pooh. Yep, you probably guess that I am Rabbit, (always looking at the clock and worried about not being on schedule) Anthony is Pooh, (skipping through the forrest with a jar of honey and no worries, and Landon is Roo, (having the time of his life playing and no cares or worries)...but hey, it takes all kinds to make the world go round. Who knows??? One day I just may get the hang of it and grab that honey pot of his and take a break from my normal routine and go skipping off into the woods to stay. Stranger things have happened!

I can so relate....I think taking pictures is great therapy for me too. There's just something relaxing and peaceful about it. I love your pics. It looks like you are doing good with your photoshopping! I honestly don't know how you are able to figure out the program without a class. I must be challenged or something. LOL

By the way, I forgot to mention in my previous comment that I love the water drop pictures....I'm so impressed with those. Do you have a macro lens?
