My husband brought back this little gem from his trip to Mexico. It is a handmade piece that represents the Day of the Dead celebrations that take place in November.

After having breakfast downtown with my friend, Julie, I decided to explore Denver. Sunday mornings in the city are quiet and the parking is free, making it a great time for pictures.
This 40-foot blue bear, titled I See What You Mean, by Lawrence Argent is outside the Denver Convention Center.
"The artist has described I See What You Mean as a stylized representation of native fauna. As the bear peeks inside the enormous facility at the conventioneers, displacement and wonder pique curiosity and question a greater relationship of art, technology and whimsy. "
If you are attending ISTE2010, you can get a shot of this great art piece right outside the main doors.

I knitted the coffee cozy with leftover yarn from the recent scarf I made. This is always in my purse and is my little way of producing less trash even when I don't have my reusable cup handy.

I actually posted a different picture for today, but decided to keep trying and posted this one instead inspired by the Daily Shoot assignment.
My husband, Mike, took our Nikon D50 with him on a trip, so I am stuck with the point and shoot and I am having a hard time getting my pictures clear and my lighting right. Looks like I'll be spending the weekend getting acquainted with my point and shoot.
These are dried Cattails I am using for an art project.

I purchased new running shoes today from Boulder Running Company in Greenwood Village. I got another pair of Brooks Adrenaline GTS 9s. This is the fourth pair of Brooks Adrenaline shoes I have owned and I absolutely love the support and fit.
I also found out Boulder Running Company- Greenwood Village does a 10 mile run on Saturday at 7:30am from the store. Currently, my long day is six miles, so in a few weeks I will be ready to join them.
I getting pumped about the Boulder Spring Half Marathon on March 14th. It will be my first half marathon ever.

Last night I started reading Committed by Elizabeth Gilbert. I usually don't buy hardback books, but I loved Eat, Pray, Love so much, I couldn't wait to get my hands on it.
This picture is part of today's photo challenge, "glasses help many folks bring the world into focus each day. Make a photo of a pair of any kind of glasses today."

Thanks to the folks on the EDTECH365/2010 Flickr Group, I found out about The Daily Shoot and tried meeting the challenge today.
This light is sheltered from the falling snow. I shot several shots and picked this one as the best.

On Sunday, I usually make a trip to the grocery store and stock up for the week. Grapefruit is a breakfast favorite in the wintertime. I picked up a few along with some other fruits and veggies.
Today was a tough photo day for me. I am attempting to follow the 10 New Year's Resolutions for Photographers posted on This Week in Photograph's blog. I think the toughest one for me will be not to use the auto setting on the camera. I took almost 100 pictures using various settings and they just didn't seem to turn out right. I am currently working on reading through the camera's manual, in hopes of getting a better understanding of what each setting can do for my shots.
