A Day with Neta and HER Camera

There was NO camera in my life until now.  Some people are slow.  My children, especially our youngest one, often wonders why there are so few pictures of them growing up?  The answer is simple.  There was no camera!  My Big Sister was given a camera as a gift, when we were very young.  It was a Brownie.  I remember it so well.  No one gave me a camera;(

Well, I have one now!  Wooohooooo!
Our family pictures back in the day, long ago, when our children were children, were taken by photographers in a studio.  We made dates, faithfully, almost every year.  Good old Olan Mills.

Now it is my turn.  My subjects are the people, pets and things I treasure most!
Here are two of the most important guys... napping!

Then our most fabulous birthday girl

taking a spin on a new bike

and checking it out!

Ralle aka Vi'Skaly's Ralph Lauren,  on the sofa.

Relaxing and watching TV!  Jack Bower?  Or was it James Bond?

Treasured memories of loves lost.... Una and Rontu.

Next  the "other man" in my life, Mister Kitty.  He is gonna get that bird!

These Triple Chocolate Chunk Cookies with flaked salt were not much to look at, but mighty tasty.

So, other passions appearing in picture form will most likely be FOOD.
The best kind, does not have to be complicated to be awesome.  Something as simple as really good Santa Cruz sourdough bread, with buttery ripe avocado, is for me, a great California breakfast or lunch.   PERFECT either way!

This guy will be a favorite subject as he is absolutely irresistible.

Funny how water tastes so much better out of the water pitcher than the water bowl?

There will be flowers!  I find such delight in the colors, the fragrance, the sheer and simple joy they impart.

Opening the  gate to our court yard,

finding bougainvillea,

calla lilly, nasturtium, pelargonium

and all those roses, make my heart leap!

And of course our family!
Depicted here is the future Chef and her Mom, who is trying hard to NOT smile.  The future Chef........ well, she almost always does.

Capturing images of LOVE is difficult and I am not so certain I will succeed ...... but there, there is some of mine!!


  1. Hos oss är det tvärtom, eftersom jag har varit gift med en fotograf (och nu har en dotter som är fotograf också). Det blev många foton på första barnet, sen färre och färre för varje. Man ser tydligt att Minstingen har vi betydligt mindre på än första, när man kollar tillbaka. Avtagande nyhetsintresse, men inte mindre kärlek dock.
    Finda trädgårdsbilder. Och vilken gosig hund. Själv har jag en också - med egen blogg:
