I'm sorry to say that I haven't picked up my camera this week. It's been a busy one and we are leaving for vacation on Saturday. I took this shot in July as a storm was coming in at sunset. Photos never seem to quite capture hos cool the colors in the sky look, but I tried a bunch of different exposures. I found if I metered under just a little it brought out the contrast in the sky much more.

I didn't take many photos this week besides us doing running races, but at our post-race party I happened to see this pretty monarch butterfly. Lucky for me, it hung around for a little while. Any past attempt at me getting a butterfly would result in it flying away once I got my camera. Loved the backlighting of the sun on this one.

Last weekend we took a drive over the the Buffalo Central Terminal with our main objective being to attend a train show for the boys. I brought my camera to get a few shots of the boys in all their train glory, but ended up sneaking into this little abandoned part of the terminal (of which there are many) I snapped a few shots, and would have loved to do more but I was pressed for time and wearing tiny sandals and walking on broken glass everywhere. Here's some others...
First try with this kind of photography...not quite up to John Waller (http://www.flickr.com/photos/_zprime/ )speed yet, but it was fun.

It's getting to be the end of gardening season, which is very sad to me. This is my favorite flower in my own garden- the "Lord Baltimore" hibiscus. It's a big flower, about the size of my hand. It also has this great stem, which is fun to photograph. The other late bloomer is my sunflowers. They grew quite tall this year, and I found a little friend hiding in one.

Meet sweet 5 day old Nunzio Angelo Coniglio. He is my friend Collene's baby. You may remember Collene's maternity pics from several weeks back. Nunzio was a good boy during our photo session and only showed off those Italian lungs a few times.
