August Color Combo Blog Hop!!

Hi! Thanks for joining our blog hop today. If you arrived from Adrienne's, thank you for hopping all the way down to me! If you are here and didn’t come from the previous blog, I am listing the hop below my post so you can go start back at the beginning i you wish!

This month's color combo is very summery. The sample picture is of a clementine. Who doesn't love a clementine?? I love the orange and green. And, well, I just love gray with everything!!

I had time and was inspired to take photos this month. I have one zucchini plant, which my dad says is the wrong way to grow them and the reason why I have only gotten two zucchinis this year. I just didn't have the space for more plants with all the things I wanted to grow. Anyway, while it doesn't make very many zucchinis, it does make a lot flowers, which are very similar in color to clementines.

This doesn't have the nice orange or yellow in it, but I just love the bunch of tomatoes!

Thank you for joining us today! I hope we have inspired you to get creative. If you use the color combo yourself, let me know. I'd love to see what you do with it!

Now hop on over to bunnyfreak and see what else is in store for you!

Level Up Beat Down Rocks Petaluma

It has been entirely too long. The last few weeks have just flown by. I finished summer school and started my summer online class before summer school was over. In the middle of that, I went on a short vacation. Whew! Now, I'm finally able to enjoy some summer before I have to head back to work!

Last month Level Up Down Down played The Phoenix. They played a good set to about 4 fans. The rest of the bands were, um, quite different from them. I always love photographing at the Phoenix, but the lighting was not near as good this time, I do have several good ones to share with you though and quite possibly a couple new favorites.

These last two are my favorites from the night. I love how Stephen is off all alone and thought the black and white worked really well. I love the one of Russ because it has some movement to it. I just really love how I framed it and the look on his face goes with the warmth of the lights.

Thanks for stopping by today!
