I’m cleaning out my Mac laptop and am coming across some amazing photos I’ve taken in the past and never showed in public.  Some really blow me away still…..

I love adding quotes and sayings,

sometimes……..just simple words,

and poems too, when I really get them………….


Little baby calves always call to me and this one was a few springs ago.  But sometimes we need spring all year long, don’t cha think?

I call photographs like this one: A Drive-By Photo.

I have so much fun just holding my little Carl Zeiss lens Sony out the window as I’m driving.  Like little instant, fun, unexpected, movies in still-motion Photographs.

love them when I find a gem amongst the fence posts, ugly bushes and road signs (yuck)……..

As always if you see anything you would like a print of or a watercolor commissioned painting just contact me at new mexico mtn girl at hotmail  and I’ll get it listed for you.  I can also invoice you through your email.

Maybe you see something you would like but don’t know how to tell your family; you just leave it to me, my friend, and I will give a nice shout out with a few sweet hints and links involved and who knows what your loved-ones might leave you.

Friday Finds – unexpected gifts

July 12, 2013

I walk down along the river with my honey alot and every time I search for new things to photograph.  One can only take so many pictures of river shots and water, canyon walls and empty trails.  So I search out the birds and the butterflys and anything else that catches my eye or moves in that case.

I was looking for butterflys dancing around, but this year seems to be void of them. I catch a far off glimpse of a yellow swallowtail (at least I think thats what it is) ,  but nothing close enough to get good shots of.  I was headed back to the car, kinda lollygaging and I was running my hand over the tops  of this clover field I was walking along.   Deep purple, almost black clover, spring bright, pretty purple clover and soft, sweet, pale white clover that the butterflys go crazy for. I was so enjoying the sweet smell in the air and feeling the tops of the flowers brushing my hand… I realized that this was my unexpected gift.  I turned back to shoot not knowing if I could capture the essence of a whole patch of clover or not, but I enjoyed it so that I  just had to try.

Nothing says Spring, like new baby lambs

April 7, 2013

I went and did my grout-girl thing with my honey and I saw:


sweet little 2 day old, 5 day old and a month old lamb….

brand new and Lovin' Life

brand new and Lovin’ Life

Down by the river where the cool water flows,

lived a little flock of sheep.

They were lucky enough to have little frisky, fun-lovin’, kick-up-your-heals and go-all-out lambs.

down by the river in the sweet new grass lived a little flock of sheep,                       all sparkly and sweet
