Pioneer Woman has a contest today to share you textured photos. Thought I'd give it a try with the one leaf photo I took Monday. Who knows maybe I'll win something. She always has great prizes. I had no idea what I was doing and I had to have my son help me only select the leaf.

It's been a while since I've been out to take pictures just for the sake of taking pictures. I was going to go to Crane Creek today, but the area back by the lake and boardwalk were closed for hunting season. So I headed over to Maumee Bay State park and Pearson Park. This week's assignment for Digital Photography School was Bokeh. Fall and Bekeh just seem to go together, so I concentrated on taking pictures in that style. While I was walking on the boardwalk at Maumee Bay State park a pair of deer jumped out and ran off right in front of me. About scared the you know what out of me since I was listening to my iPod and had no idea they were there. Fortunately I got a few shots of them before I ran out of room on my CF card.

Planned Pethood had their 2nd annual reunion and I took pictures. The dogs had a blast and no one wanted to sit still for formal portraits, so I just took action shots.

This old pug, Lucy, came back into Planned Pethood's care. They said it was because of a divorce, although we have our suspicions that she wasn't being care for. She has to be the skinniest pug I've ever seen. Hopefully there is nothing medically wrong with her and it's just due to lack of food. But I was determined to get a good photo of her today so hopefully it will help get her adopted.
