This video is good.

I decided to make a pizza to take a picture of for this challenge.
There it is, baking in the oven, complete with my reflection on the glass. I put pepperoni, canadian bacon, bacon and slice mushrooms and sauce and cheese on it. I bought the dough ball at Winco grocery store. It is hard to get the dough nice and flat. It puffs up a lot in the oven.
Here it is all done. It tasted good.
I made this video in 2009. https://vimeo.com/6521410 I saw the Bald River Falls. This waterfall is beautiful. It is a long drive to see it, but it is such a beautiful place. Click on the link to see the video.
The other day we drove up to Mt. Rose to look at the skiing area. I have never been skiing but by husband has. The ski lift goes way up and I saw people skiing from a really steep slope. I would be scared to death to go down that. I would get to the top and get back on the lift to go back down. People was going down the slope, little puffs on snow where jetting up behind them.
Then we drove further along the road and saw Lake Tahoe. The water is so blue. I snapped a picture before we turned around and went home. It is only 14 miles from my house. I will have to go back and take better pictures.
We went and bought tickets for the Monster truck show on Saturday. I will take pictures and put a post up about the trucks. It should be interesting to see.
The weekly photo challenge is Lost in the details. Move the camera around to see how a scene changes. Get low, or reach higher for that matter, and bring out the details that are often hiding in plain sight.
I looked higher. I love the yellow sunset over the snowy mountains.
The weekly photo challenge is Kiss. Kiss. There are a lot of ways to capture a kiss, between two people – lovers, family, friends; two animals, or even just the sending or receiving of a kiss
This was her chance, they were put there, on counter, all alone, finally, away from all the other oranges. She closed her eyes and waited for the kiss. But it never came.
The weekly photo challenge is Home. In a new post specifically created for this challenge, share a picture that evokes HOME for you.
My home is in Reno, Nevada. It is surrounded by beautiful mountains. This is what I see from my home.
And wild horses roam. I saw these horses in a field next to our neighborhood. I stopped and took their picture.
I have seen a few wild horses around the neighborhood lately. The colts are unique in the markings. Look at this one. The white mark on his nose looks like a 7.
This one came over to me a couple of days ago, when I stopped to take pictures. His white marking looks like diamond shape.
Your challenge this week is to practice your powers of observation. Take any person, place, or event, and write three paragraphs describing your subject in great detail. Here are three scenes to get you thinking — feel welcome to choose one or more of these scenes and riff off of it, or create your own:
This is what I came up with. You can join in here.
2. A boy plays in his front yard. You have three paragraphs to help us imagine this boy. What country are we in? Which details help communicate this? Is there an elm tree or an olive tree in his yard? Maybe there is no tree at all. How old is this boy? What color is his hair? What is he wearing? You get the idea.
The little boy is playing in the front yard. His name is Dennis. Dennis is 10 and has a short buzz cut haircut, with a cowlick piece of hair, right in the middle of his head that won’t lay flat for anything. He is wearing thick black glasses with a piece of tape in the middle because he breaks them once a week. He has on blue jeans, with holes in the knees and dirty knees. He has on a plaid button down shirt, and dirty red shoes, that used to be white, but the red dirt stained them.
He lives in Oklahoma and his front yard has a big oak tree in the middle, that shades almost the whole yard. The roots are all over the ground, which makes it hard for Dennis to make his dirt roads to push his toy cars all around. Dirts roads weave around the tree and the front yard.
The cars are big plastic cars and maybe a dump truck or two, filled with the red dirt, dripping over the sides. He sits there and pushes the truck full of dirt over to another truck, sitting on the side of his plowed road. Making the roaring sound of the truck with his mouth and lifts up the truck bed and dumps the red dirt over the other truck. Then he has his GI Joe doll run around the truck and yells “Hey, what are you doing?” He sits there for hours playing in the dirt with his toy cars.
The Weekly Photo Challenge is Beyond.
This is a big open field. Beyond that creek, to the left is a big group of wild horses.
Today we woke up to Frozen Fog. You could not see much “Beyond” the fog. It was weird, like being in a dream. The trees were all froze white.
Here are the horses that I zoomed with my camera. Beyond the first group of horses, up on the left is another group of horses.
