Default Photo sets from Cheryl

[I'm starting to take and post enough photos that I thought I'd create one thread to post them in, to keep things more organized. I'll make a separate comment thread.]

Feedback thread


We had around three inches of snow fall yesterday, the first snow of the season, so I took a lot of photos. Many were of my kids playing, of course, but I also took a number artistic-minded ones of the snow, which I've posted in a gallery: Cheryl's Artsy Snow Pictures

A select few teasers:

I have random spurts of creativity, often catalyzed by seeing beautiful art elsewhere. Yesterday I came across this photo creation on flickr. I've had a collection of pictures of my children at a fabulous local garden which has hundreds of tulips every spring, so I used them to make my own flower/child photo collage. The poem is by an unknown author.

Smile Photo sets from Cheryl

On a whim I took my kids on an adventure on Thur to a park we'd never explored before, Rocky Point. The park is on a small peninsula poking into the Chesapeake, with many little areas to explore: sandy beach, boat launches, and a playground. There's even a lighthouse that can be seen in the distance from the tip of the point.

Even though it was a cold and windy day, we had a lot of fun. We started with a picnic overlooking the beach, and then explored for a while and finally ended up on the playground. I took quite a lot of photos, and uploaded the best of the bunch to Flickr.

Here's a few sample photos from the set:

Photo sets from Cheryl

There is a lovely park in Baltimore called the Cylburn Arboretum, where the flowers and trees are starting to awaken and blossom finally. There are lots of wonderful grassy areas to just wander around, as well as a number of different gardens to enjoy and also trails in the woods to hike. It's a beautiful place to spend as little or as much time as you have. And of course a beautiful place to take photographs!

The full set is here. Some samples below.

One more new photo set, from Sherwood Gardens which is full of tulips and cherry trees (and azaleas, but they haven't bloomed yet).

New photo sets, rounding out my pictures from April:

Small, random photo set, includes the above dandelion pics and a few others.


Second set of Sherwood Gardens: More tulips and cherry trees, plus azaleas this time (as they finally bloomed). It was a rainy day, so if you like flowers covered in water droplets you're in luck!

A few samples:

Florida Flora, Fauna, and Scenery

It's a large set of pictures. Rough organization is flower and tree pictures first, then beach & heron shots, then dolphin/pelican/manatee last.

A couple teaser pictures:


I love the glint in the eye of this little guy


Great White Heron


Dolphin and pelicans

Small picture set of flowers I got for my birthday, and a baby cardinal that stunned himself on our glass door (perhaps the one that grew up outside my window!).

Aw, the army men brings back memories (of my son Niels playing the computer games Army Men adn Army Men 2)

And I know they are often destructive, but to have deer so close... amazing.

And I love the picture you put up in here of the railroad museum!

As for the GR, are you sure Pam wasn't staying with you? Wouldn't it be a hoot if your neighbours name was McCaffrey or Scarborough?

I knew when I got Galen the army men for xmas, that they'd end up all over his block buildings. Somehow there's something very cute about that.

With our overly friendly neighborhood deer, I worry most about them crossing the major road at the end of our street. I've been amazed that there aren't more car accidents because of them. My neighbors have to sheild many of their plants in netting to protect them, but most of ours are not of interest to the deer.

I had fun this time taking some macro images at the RR musuem. I was thinking "ooh, how steampunk!" and then realized the complete irony of that.

That would be a hoot, but alas my neighbor does not share a last name with any famous authors. I do think my her dog looks very much like one of Pam's. Now I need to get Pam to see the photo set to see if she agrees!

I love the one with all the fall squash...that one would be fantastic done in my pencils. I also like the one of the red berry bush in the snow. The burned out candle is amazing. I love the clown fish, I bet the twins did too. Your pictures as lovely as usual...I would hate to have to pick only a few out of all the ones that you have taken lately, to put up for the sites *constructive criticism*...you really sure you need any of that...

Wow Cheryl!! The aquarium pictures are stunning.

I especially like the one with the clown fish. We have a salt water tank at the college I go to and we’re adding clown fish to it within the next couple weeks. I’ll def post pictures once they’re settled in!!
