Lighting My Way

"Lighting My Way" D. Altaville 2009
OK so son #1 has been up at college for two weeks now and I guess I'm slowly adjusting.
He however, seems to be doing just fine, as far as I can tell from his vids and emails, most of which his sister receives.
The one that I did get, was in response to some questions I had for the ole wise boy.
Stupid Mommy, I asked what he was eating...curious about the range of fare available at the cafeteria. His reply was...I'm old enough to take care of myself! Do I really have to list what I'm eating for breakfast, lunch and dinner everyday!
(Well, no...not exactly (:)
The other two are off to a great start in school as well.
Though, since turning seven in July, the little guy seems to be getting an attitude that's too big for his pants.
(is there something in the water?)
He is by far my most persistent and stubborn child.
I decided to entertain him recently with a "photo walk" where we could take photos together, since he was dying to use the digi camera (afterall he is seven now, he explained).
The little bugger was quite an inspiration and I remembered how much I loved exploring photography.
Sooo... I have a new shop on etsy called Velocity Joy featuring my recent explorations.
Since I was laid off from my job a few weeks ago I'm hoping maybe this will bring in some spare change since we are back to struggling once again. Though I know God will see us through this, and light our way somehow. Anyhooo...
If you have a moment...take a peek....
Big BlueJude Hugs and Blessings to all!

It IS hard to let go of the still young, but old enough, college age kid. I will go check out your shop!

I absolutely LOVE the "Grandpa's Hideout" and the "Arch 101". Those are really good! But, I'm also a sucker for b&w!
