So, here are the last few photos from this week....

On Sunday night I went over to my baby sister's house and while I was there, made these Cake Batter Bites. Well, long but funny (sorta) story: I really don't cook much at all. So my sister just moved into this house and doesn't have much stuff to cook with. I had to melt butter and I saw a glass bowl. That's great. Well, she doesn't have a microwave, only a glass stove. So dumb me, I say, 'I'm not sure if it's ok to put a glass bowl on a stove or not but I'll be watching it closely and I only have one stick of butter, so I'll try it.' Needless to say, it didn't end well. I turned my back after stirring the butter and I hear a small explosion. I turn and a piece of red hot butter flies into my chin. Thankfully, nothing else splattered. The bowl, however was in bad shape. The bottom had just fallen out into a myriad of different pieces. The stove was easy cleanup but the butter was EVERYWHERE on it.
I now have learned a valuable cooking lesson: never put glass bowls on a stove (unless you're 100% sure that they're supposed to go there).
The Cake Batter Bites were delicious by the way.

This was also at my sister's house. I was seated on the porch watching the sunrise when I happened to notice this heart carved out of one of the railings. I don't know who carved it or why but it made my morning. Love=Everything.

This is the front of my church at night. I like the lights. It reminds me of gaslights in paintings.

I have been wanting to photograph these trees in a field on the way to my hometown for a very very long time but always made excuses. Either I didn't have my camera, it was too hard to pull over, the light wasn't right, I didn't have time, etc. But on Thursday night, the sunset was GORGEOUS. An all cap kinda GORGEOUS. And I knew the time had come to stop stalling and create something I'd been wanting to do for such a long time.
I was able to stop beside the road and have no one come up behind me for about 2 minutes, enough time to snap a few shots of these lovely trees.
For post production, all I did was lighten the image a little and then use the Pioneer Woman's Define and Sharpen Action in Photoshop Elements 10.

Today I had the opportunity to take photos of my beautiful niece Baby L (who was in her mama's belly in this post here). Her mom wanted a photo of Baby L's feet with her hands. This is the finished product. Look how detailed her feet are. God is a wonderful Creator.
