Culled from the day’s catch- didn’t photograph any food making today but here is what I photographed on Saturday.
School’s out for the summer so I’m not in my home territory. Most days I shoot photographs as I drive around the city. But I am seeing different scenery these days. We went to a T-ball game on Saturday morning.
Four Annie’s Cheddar Bunnies fell out of the van onto the pavement and their bright orange caught my eye but I thought, nah, four bitty snack crackers are not worth a photograph since we have to get to the game and haul the fold-up chairs and the bag of snacks for the team. I mean another day I could do a Snack Cracker still life but we were in a rush.
Imagine my surprise when we returned to the van. The neon orange obliterated. Ants working hard to live.
and a close up detail
and then as we pulled out of the school parking lot by the baseball fields, there was a church parking lot and a scene I wanted to photograph. This is when you are probably annoying to your daughter-in-law but she doesn’t mind and pulls over by the dumpster and I got out and took about 4 quick shots on the gray day.
and the detail. My DIL asked if I wanted to come back and pick it up to take back home since it wasn’t broken!
A quick trip to the zoo and the reptile house. The kids got a chance to touch the Rosy Boa. I photographed the Pythons devouring rabbits but it is too graphic.
The Columbus Zoo has a lovely 1914 Carousel, restored. The youngest 3 grandkids took a ride.

BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED!
Ruthie miss you, but am loving the pics. Enjoy the rest of your summer 🙂
Wow, that was quite a summer afternoon. Glad you didn’t include the Boa eating the rabbit.
I love, love, love the close up of Maura. What a beautiful child!
Just look at those eyes! Boys won’t stand a chance.
That recliner looks gross
I agree with Laura – that recliner is hideous. Lots of creepy pictures — and that that lovely one of Maura! A pleasant surprise!! She is gorgeous!
I absolutely love the picture of Maura! She could be a model right now with her beautiful hair and eyes. Yes, ants can take over any food within a matter of minutes. Ruth, I’ve said it before but I really love your photography because it always holds so much life, no matter what the subject!
I Love the world through your eyes…
Beautiful shots Ruth. Maura is gorgeous 🙂
Kind of a grim day for your photos… except for that last beauty. 🙂 Thanks for sparing us the image of rabbits being devoured – seriously.

Yes, that’s a terrific photo of Maura. And I really like the photo of the 1914 carousel. It’s almost 100 years old, and they have done an incredible job of restoration. It looks brand new.
