I'm being "artsy." In other words, I really need to figure out how to use an editing program. Lol.

Deer, originally uploaded by Ms. Baboo.

We went up to Ulster County on Saturday to see some good friends who have a house in a rural area. We were lucky to see some deer on our drive there.

Edited to add this to You Capture on I Should Be Folding Laundry. This week's photo challenge was green, hands, or a chair, so I am submitting a photo for green. This may not be the best photo I took all week, but it is the greenest.

Edited to say that I am submitting the top photo into this week's photo challenge on You Capture at I Should Be Folding Laundry.  This week's challenge is Get Down Low.  I took these photos while sitting on the ground in my backyard.

I've been really into bugs lately. And this little guy said hello to me while I was watering my plants.

My sister-in-law is a great gardener.


The bees think so too.


Edited to add the Bee photo into Give Me Your Best Shot Friday at Better in Bulk.  (I know I add the Lightning Bug photo from June 22nd into Sweet Shot Tuesdays, but today I am feeling the bee a little more. Lol.)

We went to the Mets-Yankee game at Yankee Stadium on Saturday.  It was a nice day out, despite the outcome of the game.  Here are a couple shots.

This hit was foul:

But then Jose Reyes hit his second homerun of the game:

Manhattan Bridge


Health: This is a photo of me running. (Taken with an I-phone)

Sun Flare: (Previously Taken)

Two of a Kind: My niece and I always say we are twins because we are so much a like. So here is a picture of the two of us.  My mom pressed the button, but I set up the photo.  (I wish I could blame someone else for that horrible lamp in the background.  I really need to start taking notice of my surroundings better.)

Train Station, originally uploaded by Ms. Baboo.

Believe it or not, this is a subway station in NYC. The MTA workers have hung a few bird feeders. They also take care of some cats that live at the station.

You Capture-Water; Trenty Treehouse Tuesday-Summer Fun


This week's You Capture photo challenge on I Should Be Folding Laundry is water.  Here is a photo that I took yesterday at the waterfalls next to the Bronx Zoo.  Yes, those kids are jumping off of the waterfalls into the water.  Yikes!

I was up by the Bronx Zoo last night.

Here is another shot of the waterfall in the park next to the Bronx Zoo.


This is the father of the lion cubs that I posted previously. 


I wonder who he thought looked tasty.  Hope it wasn't me.  Lol.

And here is a pretty rhino.

This week's photo challenge on In A Yellow House is nature.  I took this photo at the Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge in Queens, NY.  I love that you can find so much nature in NYC if you know where to look for it.

Running, originally uploaded by Ms. Baboo.
I've been trying to get into better shape so I started the Couch to 5K (C25K) program tonight. It is a program that is supposed to have your running a 5K in 10 weeks.

By the way, this was taken with my I-phone, so, obviously, in auto.

Edited to say that I am adding this to Simplicity's photo challenge, which is self-portrait this week.
