I captured this retired firetruck parked in a field alongside Highway 15. It's familiar to me from my six years trekking up and down that highway "on the road" between W-ville and Wilmington. And nothing says roadside in the south like a non-working automobile, a pasture, cows and a power line.
I kept hoping to snap a group family shot that would work for this category, but it never happened. And in a way, Dillon's a great representative of "priorities." Soon after I found out he was on his way, I made plans to move back home. Not just for him, but for the whole family. Besides, who wouldn't make this little guy a priority?
In the eleventh hour when I still couldn't think of a photo for movement, I knew it was time to get creative. I like to think of this as my MacGyver picture. I used a small screw driver to dismantle this watch and expose its "movement."
When I was little, I loved paths that led off into the woods or around a bend to where I couldn't see. I always imagined they were the "way" to magical places. To further my interpretation of this one, I took this photo on my "way to go" to work!

Even though the composition on this one isn't perfect and you can see my shadow as I shot over Justin's shoulder, I thought that the sheer delight on Dillon's face made up for all my technical problems. He thought Auntie "Eena's" shower was quite magical indeed.

My best friend Jenn was kind enough to treat me to Jilly's Cupcake Bar. (That was the day after we dined at The Chocolate Bar!) In the foreground is the Chocolate Thunder and in the background is the Carmalita. We ate both of them - every single divine chocolatey bite.
The tallest monument in the United States at 630 feet, the Arch is a spectacular site. And for those of you who may wonder, I did not go up in it. Sit in a tiny pod and be carried up in what amounts to a free-standing bridge? No, thank you.
During my trip to St. Louis, Jenn took me to the Missouri Botanical Gardens, which is currently hosting an exhibition of Niki - a New Realist/Pop Art artist who fashioned these amazing sculptures out of concrete, glass, tile and mirrors. This skull was hollowed out - you could sit inside! Unfortunately, it rained the night we were supposed to go and see it lit and sparkling in the darkness. But that toothy grin is still enough to make you say, "Did you see that?"

Confession: Justin threw a lot of rocks to get me this picture. This one was taken at Mirror Lake at Berry. I planned to take a picture of the trickling falls, but it wasn't working out so well. Mom suggested that I let my brother toss some stones for me. I liked this splash the best because it looks like a little man in dancing happily in the splished splash!
