Random Moments in Time

Initially, I was without a digital camera for this project. However, my good friend Shawn saved this project (and my grade) by saying, "I have a camera you can use!"

On my "Artist's Date" day, I learned how to plant vegetables. Shawn demonstrated the techniques of gardening. She showed me two baby bell peppers, which gave me an idea of how the vegetables would look as young plants.

As I began to become more familiar with the camera, I took photographs of my surroundings. Rather, snapshots of particular objects at a certain time -- the moments may never happen again.

"Captured moments of the sky"
On my way home from work, here's how the clouds appeared before a storm:

Just how the sky appeared above, I felt the same way when trying to create my blog. Nevertheless, I received help from my daughter, and then, I began to see the sun shine...

I am not the average car-driver. I love my vehicle, and I really try to take very good care of it. In the same way the human body needs glucose, gasoline is the source of energy for my vehicle. Even though gas prices have fluctuated to my pocket's detriment, the tank is always filled. My vehicle takes me where I want to go and whenever I want.

My vehicle is a symbol of my appreciation for technology and of my remembrance of my past. It has been about 15 years since I have had a car. Before then, I had to walk everywhere. It was extremely rough for my children and I. Sometimes they cried openly while I cried silently because we were so tired. In retrospect, walking was a big part of our lives - my life. Now that I have my vehicle, it has put an end to all of that.
